    As the 2012 elections approach, watch and see how many Democrats up for reelection do not have him show up.
    Pelosi and Hoyer are co-sponsors, and polls show the majority of the country supports the Jobs Act.

    Of course, if "waning" is measured by how many times a group is not photographed crapping on the American flag, obstructing traffic and being the subject of mass arrests, and appearing as parasites who advocate mob rule ..... than "yeah", the Tea Party is waning

    Liberalism is absolutely a mental disorder.
    Americans Dislike the Tea Party More Than Ever Before

    "Just 28 percent of Americans hold favorable views of the tea party, an all-time low in the 19 months that CNN/ORC pollsters have gauged Americans' feelings about the movement. At the same time, 53 percent of Americans think poorly of the tea party, an all-time high. According to CNN/ORC, the movement's popularity peaked in the spring of 2010, when 38 percent of Americans said they liked the tea party and only 36 percent said they didn't.

    CNN's polls aren't the only ones to pick up a decline in support for the tea party. In a pair of Pew Research Center polls conducted in February 2010 and August 2011, disapproval of the tea party jumped from 18 percentage points; the percentage of those who said they liked the movement increased from 33 to 36 percent. Washington Post-ABC and Wall Street Journal-NBC polls also found declining support for the tea party from 2009 to 2010."

    Obama JAR today is 39% according to Gallup so your facts don't seem to jive. What makes you think, since I believe you are part of that group that supports the job's bill, that this jobs will be any better than Stimulus One? You seem to believe your state is going to get free money. What happens when that money runs out? Are you prepared to pick up the costs after that money runs out and so then why not now? Police, Teachers, and Fire Fighters are state and local responsibilities

    That's more than twice than the approval rating for Congress. And then Congress blocked the Jobs Act which 63% of Americans support.

    Dude, a serial rapist has twice the approval rating of Congress...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    ROFLMAO ..... "Congress" is not a national office position ! I'll bet there is not one Congressperson who currently polls below 40% in their own district !

    So why is Obama dropping like a rock ?

    This is pathetic.

    This does not bode well for Congress in the next election, that is my point.

    Because until recently he hasn't stood up to conservatives in both parties. When he begins standing up for progressive ideals, his approval ratings will go up again. He doesn't have to climb much to get above the approval ratings of the GOP.
