There Are NO Leaders Here!

If you want to take a look at what’s bugging America, just log on to Real Clear Politics. They have a listing of the “political leaders” job approval numbers and it’s rather dismal.

Yes, it’s no surprise to anybody that Joe Biden continues to fall. The only surprise is how low a point he’s falling to. Pretty soon, these polls will start listing his approval numbers by listing the names of people still supporting him. It’s that bad. His numbers range from a high of 43% approval and 51% disapproval in the latest Economist/YouGov poll, which traditionally is one of the more liberal polls out there, to a low of 35% approval and 56% disapproval in the latest Quinnipiac poll. Rasmussen’s latest poll has him at a 60% disapproval rating. His average, according to Real Clear Politics is now sitting at 38.9%, the lowest in history.

But poor Joe isn’t the only politician in DC to receive low marks. Kamala Harris’ average approval rating is sitting at 30%. Nancy Pelosi is at 33.8%. Chuckles Schumer is at 30%. Soon-to-be Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy is at 28%, and at the bottom is Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell at 25%.

It’s obvious that America doesn’t think that highly of the various political leaders of either party. And while that’s terrible news for Democrats who basically have control of the legislative and executive branches of government, there doesn’t seem to be much support for the leaders of the Republican party in either house of Congress either.

So the question is why?

Basically I think it’s because of a couple of reasons. First of all, the country is in miserable shape. That can be laid squarely at the feet of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the Democrats that are controlling Congress now. When you have the highest gas prices on record, inflation running higher than it has in 40 years due to the over-printing of money, and a border crisis that the administration and Congress have both declined to do anything about, it’s bad. Now we throw onto that pile a baby formula shortage, a siracha shortage (wait…it’s coming!), and supply chain issues that have beguiled Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg. Add rising street crime in major cities, and it’s no wonder people are begging for a change in leadership. Even Democrats are screaming that they want someone other than Joe Biden running as their candidate in 2024.

It all comes down to what I would call an infectious partisanship. Democrats don’t want to work with Republicans. They are more interested in making the Republicans look bad any way possible, that they forget about doing “America’s business” of running the country. Just look at the latest/greatest committee hearings going on. The January 6th special committee is garnering all of the mainstream media attention right now. They are doing their darndest to make sure that Donald Trump is wounded as severely as possible prior to his announcing his candidacy for the 2024 election.

Democrats realize that they have to do all of this now because it’s becoming painfully obvious to even the most casual observer that the midterms are going to be a red wave like we haven’t seen in decades. And they have resigned themselves to the fact they will lose Congress, so they need to get this stuff accomplished right now! After January, they won’t be able to control committees to hold Donald Trump liable for anything. The only problem with their theory is that people have a short memory and we’re over two years away from Trump actually getting votes in a presidential election (should he even decide to run). That will be two years of Republican rule in Congress, and the Democrats only real spokesperson will be Joe Biden, who American has already given up on.

There is not doubt there needs to be changes in DC. The federal government is broken. It needs to not just be fixed. It needs to be over-hauled and returned to what the Founding Fathers intended it to be. If we don’t do that, we languish with nothing getting done and the country slipping away, just as England, France, and Spain did centuries ago.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. When it dips to single digit number approval ratings, make sure you have stockpiled your popcorn! Oh wait… stockpile your popcorn now! Joey The Cackling Fall Chicken Bidet will be forcing the corn to be turned into ethanol to dilute gasoline even further than the 25% ratio by the time his approval rating hits single digits.

  2. We certainly have our share of bad politicians in Congress on both sides.

    We definitely need term limits but of course they will never address that constitutional issue.

    Perhaps another good reason along with a balanced budget amendment to hold an Article V constitutional convention ?
