    Could you be any less consistent? You want to say that the congressional elections were a national mandate to cut spending, but congressional approval says nothing about the nation's priorities?

    Congressional elections are local and the total of those elections sends a message that you want to ignore. The nation's priorities are to get its fiscal house back in order. Now be a good little liberal and do what those in this video did.

    NO. I see no problem. What problem is there?

    There is a war being waged against many Americans and its being waged on a federal, state, and local level. I see it first hand and talk to the warriors waging it each day I go into work at the state capitol. I see it when I read the propaganda from groups like CATO and other far right think tanks. I see it when groups like ALEC and the Club for Growth manipulate and use legislators to advance a radical right agenda like taking away the right of local people to elect their own government.

    The only sin committed by the Black Caucus is one of being too frank and honest.

    Polls make it crystal clear that the nation's number one priority is jobs and the economy -- not deficit reduction. Deficit reduction isn't even close:

    CNN Aug. 5-7
    "Which of the following is the most important issue facing the country today? The economy. The federal budget deficit. Health care. The situation in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. Illegal immigration. Terrorism. Policies toward gays and lesbians."

    The economy 60%
    The federal budget deficit 16%

    Health care 9%
    Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya 5%
    Illegal immigration 4%
    Terrorism 3%
    Policies toward gays, lesbians 1%
    Other (vol.) 1%
    Unsure 1%

    CBS News/New York Times Poll. June 24-28
    "What do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?"

    Economy/Jobs 53%
    Budget deficit/National debt 7%

    ....

    Oh, I see, the American people don't know what is best for them and need the liberal nanny state? Thanks for clearing that up.

    As for Michigan, I will take TX any day over the govt. you have in that state perpetuated by liberalism.

    That explains why Obama has a 38% JAR, no focus on economic growth and job creation. Thanks for pointing that out.

    It explains why Congress has a 12% approval rating, and why Republicans are going to take a whoopin' in '12. Obama is in favor of short-term stimulus to improve the jobs situation. Republicans are in favor of cutting spending which kills jobs, which is NOT what most Americans want.

    I may not think much of Congress either but have no problem with my Representative so what is your point? National polls on Congress are irrelevant since Congressional Representatives are local.

    Like it or not it reflects on how the Republican party is doing nationally.
