President's Poll Rating Falls to a New Low

The headline for this article in the Washington Post declared that Bush's poll ratings had fallen to a new low, but I was interested in the last three paragraphs showing that people are not happy with the Democrats' "go along" to "get along" behavior:

"The survey also provided bad news for Democratic leaders, who are judged as offering Bush only tepid opposition. Slightly more than half of those surveyed expressed dissatisfaction with congressional Democrats for not opposing Bush more aggressively.

Self-identified Democrats were particularly impatient. More than three in four said congressional Democrats have not gone far enough to oppose Bush on Iraq or on administration policies in general.

'Somebody needs to speak up,' said Michelle Burgess, 41, a home health aide in St. Louis. 'Enough is enough. I don't understand why we're over there in Iraq or what he's doing on other issues. There are too many lives being lost.'"
My question to the Democrats is, "Are you clueless or spineless?"
