    There's a long 200 year tradition in America, when a President leaves office he's suppose to stay out of the public limelight, out of public politics, never comment publicly on who's in the White House and just keeps his mouth shut.

    Of the 44 Presidents this nation has had, 43 have upheld that tradition. Teddy Roosevelt and Jimmy Carter have walked the line but Clinton needs to raise his standards and get a life and hook up with a Fox News babe.

    Bush couldn't even spell impasse.

    I can not even find the talk radio site your getting fooled by. Even the Right Wing puppet sites disagree with you.
    This site has the same info, yet it is only a Right Wing mouthpiece:

    WSJ Poll: Republican Party Badly Damaged By Shutdown - Alan Colmes Radio Show

    Fox News Poll Finds Disapproval Of GOP Skyrocketing After They Shut Down Government

    There was nothing wrong with the first 4 random links I gave you. Nothing biased about the polls or the information.
    The American people who have any degree of concern or any degree of exposure to fact all know what is happening, and THAT is your problem.

    When Faux News is willing to report negative news about the GOP... you know it is REALLY BAD.

    This is actually a very good point and very insightful. It may even turn into one of those "an enemy of my enemy is my friend" things ie the TP (who don't like Bush) and the Libs (who really don't like Bush) would come together in a mutual denouncement of his involvement.

    Nothing wrong, except it's a falsehood to claim that Obama's poll numbers are going up, since the shutdown.
