Recent respected polling shows that more Americans support the nation turning communist than approve of Congress, but don't tell that to Orange County Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.
Rohrabacher must not be able to process the fact that a New York Times poll found that just nine percent of Americans approve of Congress while a Rasmussen poll found 11 percent are okay with a communist takeover of the United States of America.
Indeed, according to polling, lawyers are now three times more popular as a group than members of Congress.
But Rohrabacher–the county's most senior, career politician–wrote a Jan. 3 Twitter post that encouraged citizens to blame President Barack Obama for all of the nation's woes.
“Don't blame Congress,” he wrote.
Rohrabacher first ran for Congress in 1988 by campaigning for the dire necessity of limiting members of Congress to no more than six years in Washington, D.C. to help prevent corruption.
He is now seeking his 25th and 26th years in Congress.

R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club; been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists; and hailed by two New York Times Magazine writers for his “herculean job” exposing Southern California law enforcement corruption.
