    At the end of the day the President is held responsible for policy decisions, especially those he initially backed and supported.

    BOB WOODWARD: First, it was the White House. It was Obama and Jack Lew and Rob Nabors who went to the Democratic Leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, and said, 'this is the solution.' But everyone has their fingerprints on this.

    As is the speaker of the house who proclaimed that he got 98% of what he wanted when he got sequester.

    I doubt the Republicans are very worried. I do wonder how worried the Democrat party is regarding these numbers. Who will they run in 2016 that has the ability rouse an audience liken to the current President? He exhibited these energetically persuasive oratory skills in the ’04 convention and has only honed these more as time has advanced, also as evidenced by the poll you posted. Reagan, Clinton and now Obama had/have these skills. Nixon, Carter, Ford, GHWB, GWB and Hillary…not so much.

    Most of the GOP seem to have no clue they are setting themselves up to lose the House over the next two elections.

    We'll lose the house and the Democrats will lose the economy....whats left of it.

    Is that something your proud of ? More people on Govt.services as our debt and defecit rise and our economy shrinks ?

    No matter the pole, your ideology doesn't work as we are currently seeing evidence of.

    Enjoy the misery
