They Don't Have a Clue

Here's another case where liberals are whooping it up without, apparently, a clue in the world about what is really going on.  From a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll:

"What a difference a few weeks can make.
Last month, Republicans were celebrating their midterm victories; Democrats were licking their electoral wounds; and President Barack Obama’s approval rating was stuck in the mid-'40s. 

But after a five-week stretch that included bipartisan legislative achievements in the lame-duck session of Congress, mostly positive economic news and Obama’s well-received speech honoring the victims of the tragic shootings in Arizona, the political world has taken an abrupt turn in direction." 

No it hasn't.  In national politics, there is exactly one day every two years when Republicans need to outpoll Democrats: the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, in national election years.  It costs the corporations that own the Republican party a hell of a lot of money to con the American people into believing that the same party that has wrecked our economy over and over again should be put back into power, and if there's one thing rich people don't like, it's spending money on anyone but themselves.  Well, they bought the votes of the stupid once again last November, and they don't give a God damn what the rest of us think of them until the 2012 election, at which point they will spend whatever it takes to con the gullible again.

That's how electoral politics really works in America today.  Deal with it.

Gotta hand it to 'em. They know exactly how to manipulate short term memory and long term ignorance.

How many times have I heard the supercilious "leaders" of the GOP invoke the "the American people spoke on November 2, and they want us to reverse everything Obama has done!" b.s.?

Only 30%, at most, of registered voters participated in the last election. A minority of Americans changed the House and somewhat the Senate, and the GOP think they're in charge.

Another "They Don't Have a Clue" piece of evidence.
