The latest polls I have seen show President Obama with a 53% approval rating. It seems, despite all the Republican lying and efforts to undermine his administration, the American people are not listening. With Republicans controlling 90% of the media, I find this fortunate and have hope for the future. The Republicans in the Senate continue to be obstructionist despite the president reaching out to them more than ever since the State of the Union address. I find it difficult to understand how he could continue to try and work with them knowing what they are doing trying to make him look bad at every opportunity.
Democrats in the Senate really need to step up now and help the president get his agenda through Congress. There is no possible way to clean up the mess of the previous administration in one year and the American people seem to realize this, but I am not sure what will happen in the mid-term elections if things don't start moving more quickly through the Senate. The electorate has never shown a liking for partisanship. I fear if they don't change things and quickly there will be a blood bath come November. If this happens, of course, the Republicans will get more seats and possibly wrestle control of the Senate and then none of the president's agenda will get through. Please call or write your Congressmen and let them know that we need them to get on with the people's business and stop all the partisanship in the Congress now.
