    Oh, so the Democrats familiarized themselves with the Bill before they responsibly passed it and now are running for cover. Don't you thing it would have been wiser to demonstrate their misgivings while they were reading it?

    No, Nimby what's irresponsible it twisting the words in order to get a question that suits. I'm not offended because these childish stunts tried by leftists, we see it here every day. The USA is seriously running out of educated adults. It has become a crisis in fact. Sue your Teachers union.

    The same educated adults who created the across-the-board public pension fiasco the Nation is now stepping into..
    I've had enough of these back-loading pols and selfish pensioneers who won't give aq dime, though they can easily afford it..
    We'll all be SOL when the pensions go down, not just Detroit .

    Such as Rep. Paul Broun from Georgia running for Senator..
    He makes Cruz look like Bernie Sanders..
    Hence, the GOP story on GA Rep. Kingston on making poor kids work for their free lunch cleaning up the lunchroom .

    Factually incorrect. Bush's approval rating at the end of his 2nd term was 22 percent and had gone as low as 20.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Apparently we all DON'T know about MoE, since j-mac made it pretty clear he didn't.
    I did no such thing. That is only you trying to shift the focus on me with a lie, so that you don't look so foolish for trying such a weak attempt at making excuses for the failure your president is.

    Hmmmm...You have to ignore the entire last year to make your (being nice here) factually inaccurate claim. The truth of the matter has already been posted in this thread, so let's look at apples to apples shall we?

    "Obama's approval rating in the poll stands at 43%. By comparison, President George W. Bush had a 47% approval rating at the end of the fifth year of his presidency.
