Split government, split populace
Breaking at the seams, America needs to collaborate and tend to business.
This story reports in summery that we are tied: we like the President and we like a Republican Congress.
What we really want is for the economy to get back on track. Did you miss the off-handed endorsement by Mayor Michael Bloomberg this week when he asked people to get behind the President? We have one commander in chief and you know he is pretty smart regardless of being let down by senior members of his own party who are largely political lifers and unfit for office. That aside, there is perhaps an equally unfit set of Republicans, though some are marginally better fit to right the economy.
So if I were President, I would call up Mayor Bloomberg and Steve Forbes, a couple of knowledgeable guys and solicit their advice.

And when it comes to who has taken the stronger leadership role in Washington, it's an even divide: 43 percent say Obama, 42 percent the GOP.
