Requiem for the Congressman

The Rasmussen pollsters asked "likely voters" if they thought their Congressional representative should be reelected. The results are amazing. Whereas the rule in the past has been that the United States Congress is doing a lousy job, whereas my Congressman is terrific, that now is very much a minority view:

Sixty-two percent (62%) of voters think it would be better for the country if most congressional incumbents are defeated this November. Just 27% think their representative in Congress is the best possible person for the job, and only 37% think their local congressional representative deserves reelection.
The problems are three: the auto bailout, the stimulus, and ObamaCare. For his part, the President worries that the people are scared. Indeed we are! We're scared of him. Mr. Obama's best option, it seems to me, is to follow the pundit who was so disappointed with the electorate that he thought the government's ought to fire the people and appoint a new one. Who the devil said that? For the first time in years, Google fails me. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
