    My point is a lot of people believe that.

    It's a little sad that this number of people believe the government had something to do with 9-11. But at the same time, it's a little more sad that our esteemed leaders at the White House have managed to so thoroughly screw shit up, blatantly break many, many laws and repeatedly lie to the public that they've now prompted a "Hell, I wouldn't doubt it" feeling in most Americans. That's the truly sad part -- that and the fact that 1/3 believe GWB is still fighting the good fight. WTF? Where the hell have these people been living the last six years?

    My point is there are a lot of stupid people out there.

    And I'm not calling the people who don't like our government stupid. I'm referring to idiots who think Roosevelt let PH happpen and Bush let 9-11 happen.

    The Bush Administration has lied about absolutely every single solitary position, fact or announcement they've made; all those lies are slowly being exposed one after another. So it's no wonder a growing number of Americans believe we're being lied to about 9/11 as well. After all, tigers don't change their stripes.

    Yet congress is less popular than the President.

  8. Which is what happens when rubber-stamp extremist Republicans deliberately abdicate their Constitutional duties of oversight, and abandon the equal station among the branches of government that the Constitution demands of them.
    Secrecy breeds paranoia breeds conspiracy.

    In the last survey I saw Congress had a lower approval rating than Bush did.

    That's tough to quantify . . . at least until November.

    Most people think more highly of "their" congressman than they do the others.

    And since they can only re-elect (or bounce out of office) "their" congressman, how they feel about the others isn't all that important.

    I think you misunderstood my WTF reply.

    Let me clarify: WTF does that have to do with anything mentioned here?

    If the Democrats had any interest in truly acting in a bipartisan fashion instead of screaming like a bunch of spoiled six-year-olds who had their coloring books taken away Congress might actually have a chance of operating properly.
