the new silent majority

Quote:
[Excerpt:]This is America's silent majority, and they are underrepresented in American political life. Polls released over the past few days bear that out. Eighty percent of respondents to a Washington Post/ABC News survey reported they are "dissatisfied" or "angry" about the way the federal government is working.

Along those same lines, a USA Today/Gallup Poll found that at least two-thirds of those surveyed said members of Congress from both parties gave priority to their political interests above the country's best interests.

So what's the solution? Above all, Washington needs to figure out a way to free itself from the grip of the political extremes. And the best way to do that is to make sure America's silent majority is heard. (more in link)
it would seem the silent majority wants an end to political extremes on both sides...

and if i'm not mistaken most polls show that the majority wants a deal and that default would have bad consequences for the country...

actually, i thought the article was a good read and i highly recommend it...

I think the article is spot on. I think most people do want a deal. However, I think most people want someone else's taxes raised, not theirs. I think most people want spending cuts on programs they do not benefit from.

Overall, I think people are tired of politicans on a 24/7 campaign. Ironically Pelosi took off today to go to a fundraiser. And I think the President is in full campaign mode spouting off the same BS he did in 08.

The bottom line is people are tired of DC and the crap going on. They want shit done and done right and done without over-spending. The problem is the politicos benefit more by not doing anything because it provides them with a larger pallet to for them to campaign on.

I think we saw these people speak last November. And they will speak again with Obama's help keeping them motivated.

You are right they spoke, a lot of the polls after the election pointed to the American people wanted compromise. That is why the Dems retained the Senate and they didn't want crazy people representing them.

Which is exactly what they are wanting now...fair compromise.

The Reps are making the same mistake the Dems made by thinking they have a mandate. They don't and if they keep going on like they are they will get the boot.

And for Pete the entire Republican caucus in the House took the entire weekend off to go campaign. I am curious why you aren't bitching about that.

Precisely They are called "We The People" a la Tea Party and they want the Repubs to hold strong.

ABC/Washington Post? C'MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!! These polls are being manufactured at breakneck speeds by the Marxist Media in order to get the Repubs to cave in and throw O'Marxist a lifeline. But I'm telling ya "O" doesn't want a deal just yet, he wants a default first so then he can change the narrative going into 2012

The "Real True Silent Majority" (a la Tea Party people and God-fearing Real Americans (a la me and the people I agree with (a la people who are shunned by modern society because (a la they are put in institutions)))) know that the true issue (a la the one not being told by the Marxist Media) is The "Birth Certificate" (a la the second fake one) and that the Debt issue is just a political ploy being used by the Obama camp (a la Marxist Media) to distract people (the Sheep (a la Marxists enablers)). The Alinskinyzing is rampant.

You do not represent the views of the majority of Americans. The majority of Americans think you're an idiot.

You can't even effectively "Alinskyize" me It's obvious you haven't read "RFR" yet.

Yes, I follow them, if you could call it that. Really, once you've seen one sportsshrink post, you've seen them all. You're a one-trick pony.
