Kilroy on Countdown

Democratic Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (OH-15) appeared on tonight's Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Kilroy talked about her experience of being stalked, badgered, and interrupted by right wing nut case, Rep. Foxx. The stalking, badgering, and interrupting of Democrats speaking on the floor of the House of Representatives is part of a new campaign by Republican Eric Cantor to target freshmen Democrats.

Unfortunately, this behavior by Republicans only displays the fact that Cantor, Foxx, and the rest of the Party of No, are so inept that they can't come up with substantial legislation. This Republican harassment is not going to win them any additional friends. Just look at today's New York Times/CBS poll:

(1.) Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?
66% Approve
24% Disapprove
10% Don't Know/NA

(18.) Regardless of how you usually vote, who do you think is more likely to make the right decisions about the nation's economy ---- Barack Obama or the Republicans in Congress?
63% Obama
20% Republicans in Congress
2% Both
2% Neither
7% DK/NA

(31.) In general, is your opinion of the Republican party favorable or not favorable?
31% Favorable
58% Not Favorable
11% DK/NA

Republicans------ we're just not that into you.
