    He doesn't have 60 votes on anything, nor another chamber that can even agree with itself, much less compromise with Democrats. Uninformed, insulting, drivel, as usual.

    So basically... it's the voters. Or should I say (guessing), 55% of the people that are eligible to vote. (US) We approve of our own local representatives, but by 86% think Congress is a disaster. Man, we are really stupid.
    Yes it's a big factor.. the gerrymandering is a problem since it creates election proof districts which is a huge problem in creating obstinate congressmen or even just congressmen pandering to a small but locally powerful minority.

    And there is something to be said for the stupidity of the American voter.

    Whether it's thinking "Obama is going to buy them a car" or "Government isn't the solution, it's the problem" or "throw the bums out" it's seems the one line slogan to characterize politics is the best most people can handle.

    APF doesn't come in screaming at others about how stupid they are. APF doesn't spam NST with the same tired topic 30 times a month. APF doesn't link to some kook in his mom's basement telling you how to, "Be afraid. Be very afraid" of the world falling down around you. And, when APF is proven wrong, he acknowledges he made a mistake and moves on, rather than harping about "sheeple."

    Yep. Sadly I was wrong and Jim was right. We (the American people) are pretty frickin stupid.
