The Nancy Pelosi-Harry Reid Congress has just hit the all-time low approval for any Congress in the Gallup poll:
[T]he 14% approval rating is extraordinary. Approval of Congress has fallen below 20% only six times in the 34 years Gallup has measured it. Including the latest reading, four of those have come in the past year: in July, June, and May 2008, and in August 2007. The two additional readings were from March 1992 (in the midst of the House bank check-kiting scandal) and June 1979 (during an energy crisis that resulted in surging gas prices and long gas lines), when either 18% or 19% of Americans approved of the job Congress was doing.
All I want to say about this is that from Pelosi and Reid you have seen two of the most uninspiring, morally disconnected, and rotten political performances since Ted Kennedy drove his car off the Chappaquiddick bridge. They don’t know how to lead, they don’t know how to follow, and they don’t know how to get the hell out of the way.
