They know it's coming...dont dissapoint them!

According to polls, Americans are in a mood to hold their breath until they turn blue. Voters appear to be so fed up with the Democrats that they're ready to toss them out in favor of the Republicans -- for whom, according to those same polls, the nation has even greater contempt. This isn't an "electoral wave," it's a temper tantrum.

No sir! This is not a temper tantrum...

Worse still, the uninformed voter cannot seem to appreciate the brilliance of Barack Obama, who has deigned to suffer on our behalf, in offering only unpopular but necessary solutions. Obama has tried his best to prepare an immature nation for amnesty, borrowing at record levels, cap and trade, and additional trillions of national debt — the castor oil that the obese and now constipated public for some reason just won’t swallow.

Really now...???

After reading both posts, I believe that the reporters have lost sight of what is really going on in the political arena and the populace that they are suppose to be representing. For far too long, many politicians often make promises that they do not keep or only partially keep, and the time is coming to where the population, we the people are holding them accountable for those actions. Too many politicians often make statements that come back to haunt them in the end. President Obama, has made one too many social faux pas and promises that are not kept or were not clear on his part. When he took office the country was in the midst of a very bad recession and in 2 armed conflicts that are losing popularity. Instead of learning from the mistakes of the prior adminstration and taking the steps to correct those mistakes and to turn around and actually make the tough decisions, he has decided to follow the few, instead of listening to all. Fears of what is being done in the halls of power are starting to come true, where many people are now watching everything that is being done in DC. The democrats made some very big promises and have failed to even deliver on those that matter to the american public, the biggest ones being the economy and housing. Those keep sliding and the bills that are getting passed often do not improve the situations of the people on the bottom of the country, but keep making it worse, combined with the ideology of those that surround the President does not improve the confidence of the general public. Neither of the Political Parties are in a favorable light, the republicans are just as much of a target as the Democrats are at this time frame. We are not so ignorant or stupid as to be oblivious to what all is going on, we see the problems and if those in power would listen, we have the solutions that actually make sense. Take the 3 issues that are affecting the general population: Healthcare, Illegale Immigration, and Jobs. On the healthcare debate, the problem is that when you have represenatitives turn around and state that they do not know what is in the bill, and can not even defend it, or make fun of or even turn around and insult the very people they are suppose to be representing, then what does that state, is this the kind of person you want to represent you? On illegale immigration, most of the people want equal justice and the borders secured, but those in the federal government are dragging their feet to the point where nothing is getting done. We are told the stimulus will improve the job market and nothing gets passed down, the jobs are still far and few between. The democrats had the majority for so long and could have passed anything, but choose not to, and now they are starting to see what their inaction has lead to. The question should be, will the republicans make a difference, or will it be business as usuall, and the population suffers for it?

I could not agree more about the reporters!

It seems that the servants in Washington need to be reminded that they are paid by us, they work for us!
It is time to put them all out of a job. Let them learn how to work for a living.

I am not fooled by the left right paradigm either. I was recently educated in details for votor registration to dissassociate with any political party.

You use the blank box, and write in "decline to state". Hows that for a new trick?

This iman there in central Florida is talking on tv, and saying that the mosque in NYC is a different matter, because they aren't doing anything illegal or anything unconstitutional- AS IF pastor JONES IS.

He's totally misleading.

What we have, IMO, is a clash of civilization. It's coming. Sooner or later, it will come. Whackos and narcissists might start it, but this touches something a lot deeper.

Freedom of religion and expression VRS Our way or the highway is GOD'S WAY.

Oh yes, agreed. I read an article the other day citing concerns about civil war. No doubt if they keep it up.
And while the mainstream media might report on the Koran burning...they sure as hell wont report on the government confiscating private retirement funds. But mark this post, it is coming. They will need all the private assets to finance the public healthcare, and the open borders.
