…Have Confidence

What do blogs, banks and Congress all have in common?

Give up?

Well it seems they’ve all lost the confidence of the American people, or at least the ones who participated in Associated Press-National Constitution Center poll (we love our polls here at the Crusade).

Now I’m just going to assume that the blogs to which this poll refers are all the other blogs out there.

I’ll try not to dwell on it, but 54 percent said they have little or no confidence in blogs and other media.  Only 52 percent said the same about banks and financial firms and just 49 percent have no faith in Congress (okay, so maybe I will dwell).


The banks have 2 percent more trust, and Congress has a whole 5 percent more.

Where did the media and those other blogs go wrong?  Did they dwell too much on the upsetting news?

Well I think it’s time we get our peppy “I have confidence in sunshine” attitude back (I had to tie in the photo somehow).

So from now on bad news does not exist.  It’s all lollipops and gumdrops, no depressing stories about things like banks and Congress.

And if these Debbie Downers of news must make an appearance then they will be delivered with a smile, and a positive twist.

Example: “The bank of so and so closed their doors today leaving thousands of employees with more free time to spend with their families.”

That should get us…I mean those other blogs and media at least 2 or 3 percent back right?  You’re going down banks.
