     Republicans must also suffer from some form of learning disability. For some reason, they can’t read the writing on the wall.


·        “[In the last two Congressional elections] Republicans lost and Democrats gained 55 seats in the House of Representatives and 14 seats in the Senate... They turned a $200 billion budget surplus into a $1 trillion deficit. They caused the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. They started the stupidest, most unnecessary war in American history. ... Only 19 percent of Americans have a favorable impression of Republicans in Congress, down from 24 percent at the beginning of the year. In contrast, 68 percent of Americans give a favorable rating to President Obama.”--Bernie Horn, Campaign for America’s Future, 2/17/09



·        “[A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll (3/3/09)]  shows that 41% of Americans say the country is headed in the right direction, ...up from 12% before the election. ...By a margin of more than 2-1, Americans trust the Democratic Party over the Republicans to get the country out of the recession. Views of the GOP are near an all-time low. And more than half of all adults say that Republicans in Congress have opposed Mr. Obama’s proposals more to gain political advantage, compared with 30% who say Republicans have done so because they are standing up for their principles.”--The Wall Street Journal, 3/5/09


...and how do the Republicans interpret these ominous numbers?


·        “As Republicans, ...I think we have to admit what our sales job has been poor.”-- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), 1/29/09
