The media vs. America

According to the media, the healthcare bill is wildly popular, the only remaining opposition to Obama is coming from dead end racists, and all political violence and incivility originate on the right.

Seven months before the midterm elections, Americans seem disaffected about nearly everything political.

A majority disapprove of both political parties, their leaders and most members of Congress, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds.

Attitudes are reminiscent of those in 1994 and 2006, when control of Congress switched from one party to the other.

The favorable rating for the Democratic Party has fallen to its lowest level since Gallup began asking the question in 1992 —its standing has dropped 14 percentage points since President Obama's election — but the Republican Party fares no better. Three of four Americans say they are dissatisfied with the country's direction.

I guess it's too much to expect the media to blame everyone in Washington equally for the mess which everyone's created. But, at least the people realize the truth - - neither side is pure, good and all knowing.
