How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts
'Democrat Landslide in November'
What the liberal whiners say:
'America is fed up with you right wing nutballs, and we're gonna sweep every last Republican out of office...starting with the Presidency!'
'You wanna talk polls? How about George Bush's dismal approval rating? Not even Republicans can stomach him anymore!'
'That's because Congress couldn't end the war in Iraq! And it's George W. Bush who wouldn't let Nancy Pelosi end the war like she promised!'
'None of that matters anyway. Barack Obama's popularity transcends Congress. He will carry the party to victory over that washed up, 200 year old Bush twin, and his biker-babe, trailer trash, token female!'
Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments
1. Apparently someone forgot to tell the American people all of that then, because McCain-Palin is up 10 points in the latest USA Today poll of likely voters, they're up 3 points with registered voters and ahead by a point even when you average ALL the polls together...that's an 11 point swing from just 3 days ago.
2. Well, congratulations...there's a little bit of truth to that. Although President Bush has over 3 TIMES the approval rating of Congress. The democrat-majority Congress is at NINE PERCENT approval! I don't think it can get any worse than that...most of that 9% is probably Congressional family members.
3. No, the war in Iraq isn't even being discussed anymore by the media...because we're WINNING it. We're winning to the degree that we're even preparing to turn it all over to the Iraqis and start withdrawing our troops. Nancy Pelosi and Congress's problem is, they promised ACTION. Instead, we have the least productive Congress in American history. Up to this point, only 294 actual laws have been passed. By far, the fewest in HISTORY, over 2 years in after an election.
And now that they've come back from a month-long vacation, what has Speaker Pelosi put on the agenda this week? Critical items such as...naming two post offices and two federal court buildings. But, they're grueling, frantic schedule doesn't end there. They are also tackling the hotly discussed issue of H.R. 3036 - the "No Child Left Inside Act of 2008". A resolution to encourage kids to go outside and play. Finally! They will also wrestle with the one of the biggest topics of our time... H.R. 3667 - the "Missisquoi and Trout Rivers Wild and Scenic River Study Act of 2008". With that hectic Pelosi plan for the week, there is of course, no time to get into something as frivolous as drilling off shore.
4. Well, it's interesting then that more people watched the Republican convention than the Democrat convention, if as you say, Obama is so wildly popular. Even after the first night of the GOP convention was all but cancelled because of Hurricane Gustav, the Republicans still stole the show from the "chosen one".
