Democrats call 2014 'good year'

WASHINGTON – 2014 was a good year.

Yes, 2014 was a good year.

According to Democrats.

The headline of the story reads: “Fox News Poll: Voters say 2014 was a good year.”

But the actual poll numbers show a dramatically different story.

A whopping 73-percent of Democrats surveyed “feel this has been a good year for them.”

Only 45 percent of Republicans felt similarly.

Just 49 percent of independents said it’s been a good year.

The Democrats’ overall good vibes seem to fly in the face of the poll results that show an overwhelming negativity among a majority of voters on every single major individual issue.

The Democrats’ positive appraisal of 2014 comes despite the shellacking the party took in the midterm elections. But that might have been offset by the president’s success in bypassing Congress with executive actions to achieve his objectives on such issues as amnesty, Obamacare and increased environmental regulations.

Obama has issued 198 presidential memoranda during his first six years in office, more than any other president in U.S. history. He has also issued 195 executive orders.
