    Last I saw Obama's disapproval ratings were in the 50s...That would mean that "Most people" disagree with him....Even this article says that only 19% agree with demo handling of this situation....Most people? Yeah right....

    Obama's ratings have NOTHING to do with the fact most people DO believe our political system is messed up. And it is ALL sides that are the problem. This fiasco with the debt ceiling proves that. All sides were willing to put Americas credit rating at risk just to score political points and try to jab the other side.

    Because I appreciate the benefit of reading skills, and would like to spread them to my conservative brethren around here.

    You see how those two sentences are right next to each other? I claim most people agree with Obama. The political system is messed up. The topic is the political system. Obama thinks it's messed up. Most people agree with him. Sometimes sentences have to be read with a little contextual nuance so that you don't come off looking silly. It's simple once you get the hang of it.

    Glad I could help you.

    Obama aired his frustration with the ways of Washington at an event in Michigan before pivoting to his re-election campaign and a pair of big-money fundraisers in New York City.

    While they may agree that politics are messed up, they do not agree with Obama on the subject. His solution appears to be to run off to a partisan fund raiser.

    this is not compromise.
    That is simply untrue....As I already pointed out, Boehner was ready to accept a deal that included some 800billion in new revenues....Obama blew it up the next day saying it wasn't enough....You don't get to rewrite your own reality here.

    Yet it is Obama that presides over the downgrade anyway....You must be proud.

    The political system is messed up. On that I agree, but let's not be concocting some lame excuse that it is because conservative won't just roll over for "the One" and his open checkbook spending....That is intellectually vapid.

    On that very small point ok...as to the why it is messed up though I have the feeling you and I are worlds apart.

    But if you want to hang your hat on the miniscule, go right ahead, thanks for participating.
