According to the Gallup Organization, the United States Congress reached a four year high this month in their national approval ratings. Due to the fact that 57% of brain-dead Democrats believe that the crooks in Washington are doing a stand-up job, their approval rating has climbed to a whopping 39%. This is up 25 points since the middle of 2008, when the Congress recorded an all-time low approval rating of 14%.
The improved numbers in this poll are driven by partisanship and ignorance. I would venture to bet that when the Congressional approval was at 14% in mid-2008, many of the dimwits who were polled actually believed that Republicans controlled the Congress. George Bush was president at the time, so the Congress must have been Republican – right?
Obama is now the president, so if you use the same ignorant logic as the base of the Democrat Party does, the Congress must now be controlled by the Democrats – makes sense?
During the 2008 election, Zogby International did a poll of Obama voters for John Ziegler and his great website howobamagotelected.com. The poll showed that 57% of Obama voters believed that Republicans controlled both houses of congress at the time. It’s really not a surprise that the chronically ignorant are responsible for the now sky-high (ha!) congressional approval ratings.
Approval ratings aside, the United States Congress has pretty much turned into a pathetic joke! These clowns could easily make a person laugh if they weren’t so busy trampling on the Constitution and chipping away at our personal freedoms through their outrageous and criminal legislation.
I would actually like to see a poll conducted on who people believe is the worst of this bunch. Then again, I also know that a poll like that couldn’t be viable because the vast majority of people (especially Obama voters) probably can’t even name their own representatives in Congress, much less other members.
Anyway, this is my blog; so I’m free to fantasize about being polled for the first time in my life. In this fantasy, the pollster would ask: “who do you believe to be the worst member of the United States Congress?”
I wouldn’t have to look too far, or think too long to answer the question. I would immediately and unequivocally give that honor to our own (New York’s) Chuck “The Schmuck” Schumer! This creep is the perfect stereotype of an arrogant – power hungry – crooked - politician. Schumer is so low, and so slimy, that if only he had a tail and scaly skin, he would be crawling around on his stomach using his forked tongue to snap up insects.
Schumer is all too typical of your average member of congress. The “Schmuck” graduated from law school in 1974, then immediately ran for political office. Being a Democrat in New York, it wasn’t that difficult to be elected to the NY State Assembly in his first try at the age of 23. After serving three terms in the Assembly, he ran for United States Congress in 1980, and of course, he won. He was then re-elected to his congressional seat eight times before running for the U.S. Senate in 1998 - winning once again. He has now been in the U.S. Senate for over ten years with no end in sight – thanks to the moronic Democrats that dominate New York City. In fact, Chuck “The Schmuck” Schumer has never held a job outside of government. He has never made a penny working in the private sector!
Now that Queen Hillary has jumped to the State Department, Schumer has become the senior senator from New York. He’s now more arrogant and smug than ever before. If I had to list all of Chuckey’s outrageous and deceitful transgressions while he’s been in office, I would not only bore everyone outside of NY to death, I would probably come down with severe Carpal Tunnel Syndrom. That being the case, I’ll only go over a few recent examples of Chuck being a Schmuck!
In July of 2008, Schumer caused a “run” on IndyMac Bank of California, when he made public a letter he wrote to the OTS (Office of Thrift Supervision) and the FDIC. (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) In the letter, Schumer expressed concerns about the banks “viability.” Notice he wasn’t too concerned about the viability of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac. Anyway, the letter was somehow leaked, causing the depositors of the bank to withdraw more than 1.3 billion dollars in about 11 business days.
Many people in the banking industry believed that Schumer may have broken the law by causing the “run” on IndyMac. Predictably, the media didn’t give the story much play, and Schumer slithered away Scot-free. Crazy “right-wing” conspiracy kooks (the same ones who tried to screw Bill Clinton) even went as far as to theorize that Schmuck Schumer intended to damage the economy in order to hurt John McCain and Republicans in the upcoming election. What could possibly make anyone think that Chuck Schumer would do a thing like that?
In February of this year, when Obama and the Democrats were ramming through congress their $800 billion buy-the-vote stimulus bill, there was some controversy over billions of dollars of “pork” that was inserted into the already massive spending legislation.
At that point, Chucky took to the floor of the Senate and had the chutzpah to say the following:
“And let me say this to all of the chattering class that so much focuses on those little, tiny, yes, porky amendments, the American people really don’t care.”
Then last week when the brouhaha erupted over the AIG bonuses, the Schmuck took to the floor again and sternly put out the following warning:
“If Mr. Liddy does nothing we will act and we will take this money back and return it to its rightful owners, the taxpayers,” Schumer warned. “So for those of you who are getting these bonuses, be forewarned — you will not be getting to keep them.”
Alright then, Schumer snickers at billions of dollars in pork, but is outraged over a mere $165 million in contractual bonuses paid out to AIG executives; bonuses that were protected by Democrat legislation and the Obama administration. This is too rich, even for Schmucky! Also notice that he says “we will take this money back and return it to its rightful owners, the taxpayers.” Really now Chucky – do you mean return it to the people who pay the taxes, or back to the U.S. Government? I think we all know what he means by that.
I know we have dozens of losers in the United States Congress who, if not for their positions, would be wearing stripped prison uniforms with numbers across their chests. We have Harry Reid, Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Jack Murtha and Chris Dodd to name a few; but in my opinion, many of them still pale in comparison to Chucky Schumer whose dishonesty is so immense, that he makes Bernie Maddow look like the late Mother Teresa.
So without further fanfare, I herby nominate Chuck “The Schmuck” Schumer from my hometown – the once great state of New York, for The Worst of the Worst Award for 2009! I believe it’s a well deserved nomination, Chucky worked very hard for this honor.
