Frank Luntz: " The Unabomber Has a Higher Approval Rating Than Members of Congress"

Analyst Frank Luntz was on Hannity last night.

Sean Hannity: Let’s go to Nancy Pelosi to responding to why it’s been hard to acquire the votes necessary. Here’s what she said.

Pelosi: Every vote is a heavy lift. We have great diversity in our caucus. We don’t have a rubber stamp Congress. (hah) or rubber stamp Caucus. So we have our full airing of issues. Members want to see these figures. They want to see what the senate will do. We like the dynamic in our caucus. But it does show the impact of the campaign of misrepresentation of fear that is going on out there. There is no limit to what the other side will do to protect the insurance companies (Huh?)

Sean Hannity: Wow. And they’re the ones who met with the pharmaceutical companies. How well did that go over?

Frank Luntz: “We don’t have a rubber stamp Congress?” Make no mistake, when someone says we don’t have “X” that means this is exactly what we have. And, when she said it is a misrepresentation by the other side and its promotion of fear, the fact is she’s actually disqualifying those opposed to this legislation. I think that is why the intensity is so much in favor of the Republicans right now on this issue. And, that is why only 37% of Americans support this. Nancy Pelosi is right. The American people are afraid. She’s just not listening… Sean, yes, the Unabomber has a higher favorability rating than some members of Congress right now.


Wild Thing's comment........

Good one Frank! “Pelosi-Reid Congress has a lower approval rating than the Unabomber.”

The Unabomber did far less damage and hurt far fewer people.

I can not understand what is so hard to see what obama is. Beckle on Fox said, obama's not a communist, members of congress have the nerve to call him president. All these pork bills Tarp 1 porkulus/stimulus were handed up with in days of the asking from obama, Doesn't anyone think that strange ? both of these were over a thousand pages each, who can write that fast and put it together with out first reading what they wrote.

All of these bills were written by the Center for American Porgress a commie front group and highly regarded by obama. We are being taken for a ride and damn well better wake up to what is going on.

Mark, I know what you mean. It is as clear as day what obama is. Thaks for that about Beckle and what he said. He just won't say the truth, won't admit what is so obvious. sheesh

I do not know, the Mainland Chinese insist that they are communists. Obama would have to move a long way to the right to reach them. The do know more about economics. What is worse than a communist?
