    It will be a very long time before we recover or reverse the damage done to this country by these people in Congress and the President after we vote them out

    The sooner we get them out, the sooner we can start to repair the damage.

    One year ago, I thought that the distinction for worst president of my lifetime was a tossup between Jimmy Carter and George W. Carter for just generally weak and a wimp, and George W. for his handling of Iraq and for what was at the time a deficit of a half trillion dollars. Now after only 7 and a half months, Obama is in serious contention for that dubious distinction.

    It took George W. eight years to turn Clinton's (another president I don't think very highly of) $127 billion dollar surplus into a trillion dollar deficit. It took Obama only a couple of months to promptly double it, and, if this health care bill passes, it'll probably stand at well over $3 trillion by 2012.

    I'll admit that I had my doubts about Obama and that's why I didn't vote for him, but as bad as I thought his line of thinking would be for this country, I didn't see things falling apart this quickly. Perhaps Even more astonishing, the city in which I live (Gary, IN, ranked by GovPro Media as America's second most liberal city behind Detroit), which is about 85% Black, is still solidly pro Obama and pro Democratic.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    I have one very big question in all of this - WHERE THE HELL IS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY in all of this? Right now, it's FOX News and the American people against Obama and his flying monkeys. WHY - haven't the Republicans gotten into this fight? Where are they? What do they think? What are they saying?

    Truthfully, I don't think we have a Republican Party anymore, which is all the more reason to toss THOSE bums out while we're tossing the other fools out. Vote Independent.

    I see that Van Jones mat very well be out of his "green jobs" role soon. We are making a difference, folks! Two Congress-morons have actually come out and said: "I won't have a town hall meeting because I'm not giving my OWN CONSTITUENTS a forum!" and "this is MY twon hall meeting and I will decide what happens. I'm not going to let MY CONSTITUENTS tell me how to run my Congressional district."

    Oh, really? They're losing it, people! They are retreating, they are stupified that the people aren't bowing and praising them. They cannot believe that they are not treated as gods. It's called "a dose of reality" and it's only going to get worse.

    Just look at McCain's showing at the Phoenix town hall - not only didn't he question the Democratic platform, he actually DEFENDED Obama.

    Oh, well...he did that during the presidential campaign, so why am I surprised? We now know that we're not going t oget any help from the Republicans. Oh, they'll tell us THEY voted against this and that, but not one of them is going on the public record and opposing Obama in the news.

    We're on our own...but you know what? We're doing it! We are doing things. It looks like Van Jones might very well be an ex-green jobs czar before the week-end is over. It looks like Obama is planning on writing his own health bill. And it looks like any health bill will go for a vote without the public option.

    Don't stop fighting, people! Keep up the pressure!

    For those analphabetic, fatuous, individual(s) that are still spinning & reiterating the clueless media b.s. about G.W. Bush being the worst President ever or as bad or nearly as bad as Jimmy "21-1/2 % Prime Rate" Carter, or spending Slick-Willie Clinton's so-called "Surplus"...
    you remain ignorant of the facts...

    For Starters...

    • Like most of the Progressives before him (Wilson, Roosevelt(s), Kennedy, Johnson) Democrat Jimmy "Worthless, Coward" Carter, created many useless government "Departments" and "Entitlements", that have been nothing more then an increased tax debt.
    • Anybody remember where we first met the current whack-job President of Iran? - He was one of the terrorists that held our guys for 444 days back during Jimmy the Wimp days...
    • Slick-Wille cannibalized the military, Veterans Administration (Including but not limited to WALTER REED hospital, that W. Bush got blamed for...) for 8 eight years and took most of that money and gave it away to the U.N. and other Socialist Entitlement Programs in the U.S...
    • Our Taxes were higher under Carter, Reagan, H.W. Bush, and Slick-Wille Clinton then they were under W. Bush...
    • When Reagan took office we were using Korea & Vietnam-Era Technology in the Military...
    • When Slick-Willie Clinton took office we were the most technologically advanced military on earth... When he left we were very far down the totem poll...
    • When Slick-Wille Clinton left office Saddam Hussein had a larger standing Army and better armed then we did... The only real military advantage we had remaining at the time was our out-dated Naval & Air force technology... and nukes...
    • When Slick-Willie Clinton left office we were fricking RIPE FOR 911, totally oblivious that anybody in the world wanted to do us harm, (except for some of us in the military) we had ZERO pieces of body armor, zero armored Humvees, by the end of W. Bush's 2nd Term we had over a million pieces of body armor and 10's of thousands of armored Humvees... yet W. Bush got slammed and still gets slammed for sending our troops (myself and kids included) into harms way without body armor, armored Humvees, etc...
    • Under W. Bush we now once again have the greatest armed and most technologically advanced military on earth second to none...
    • IF anybody is responsible for 911, et.al. its fricking Slick-Wille Clinton whom like the current Socialist Car-Salesman; he thought we could negotiate with terrorists, and was more worried about doing trouser tricks with Monica then giving the kill-shot order to our snipers whom had Bin Laden in their cross-hairs on his watch... before 911...
    • How many people remember that on Slick-Willie's watch Bin Laden placed an ad in a major London newspaper that the A.P. put out over every media outlet on the planet that stated it was every Muslim on earth's duty to kill any American or Jew on earth by any means necessary and that they had no higher calling... A week later ABC news interviewed Bin Laden and asked him if he meant to make a distinction between women, children, old, sick or infirm, he stated no, make no distinction they all must die...
    • How many American Embassy's, Naval Ships were bombed on Slick-Willie Clinton's watch?
    • How many on W. Bush's watch before 911 and how many after?


    As the saying goes "PEACE THROUGH SUPERIOR FIREPOWER"

    Was W. Bush perfect no... but he was not that bad either, and he kept us safe and I am proud to have had him as my commander in chief...

    Too many fail to recognize that we had 6 good solid years under W. Bush, and it starting going south in 2006... anybody remember what happened in 2006?
    The Democrats took the Majority of Congress and stopped supporting W. Bush... and Hillary & Obama started campaigning for President...
    And the biased media spin machine went into overdrive...

    You can count on one-hand how many of the 535 members of Congress whom did not sign the Iraq War Resolution, only one of those that did not sign is still in office...

    While W. Bush continues to get blamed for an illegal war, invading Iraq, etc., that he insisted on getting Congress's approval (and he got) on before going forward with...

    They had the same facts he did, the same facts every intelligence agency in the world on our side had, and the facts that Saddam Hussein had in the not so recent past used Weapons of Mass Destruction on his own people...

    And the facts that the Israelis had in fact blown up a Nuclear Reactor belonging to Saddam Hussein that the stinking FRENCH sold to him...
    And the facts that he was playing the same cat & mouse game the whack job in N. Korea is playing with us now...

    Yes mistakes were made, but W. Bush's mistakes were the same everybody else made, and given the information he had before him, and the advise by subject matter experts given him; he could make no other choice...

    G.W. Bush is a Great American PERIOD...

    His prime objective was to keep America safe after 911, and he did that...
    NUFF SAID...

    Now we have the Usurper & Company whom in their first 30 days in office spent more then all Governments in the entire history of the country combined in their entirety, inflation adjusted!

    Yes Obama the Usurper is worse then Jimmy the Wimp, and is the worst President in U.S. history in his own right, and he is just getting started...

    Time for a new Declaration of Independence...



    "Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it." - Edmund Burke

    Sad to say, it appears we are back to a pre-911 mentality...

  10. Amen to that my friend!

    Don't be so sure...people seem to have a remarkable capacity for self-abuse, politically. Look at how many times Ted Kennedy was elected! Pelosi, Dodd & Reid, too! The mere fact that we (the majority) elected Obama speaks to an electorate that's prepared to overlook the most obvious shortcomings and negative traits for the sake of some fantasy about what they thought would happen under this man. I can't tell you why . . . it was perfectly clear to me, as I know it was to most of us here, and Time seems to be bearing out my darkest expectations, with even darker clouds on the horizon. Voters have short memories, and scoundrels are going to get elected despite their performance in the National arena. Must be something I'm not seeing, but I'm not wearing any rose-colored glasses. The most interesting thing to me is that, even when you present a linear, coherent argument as to the reasons for your thinking, Liberals reject it out-of-hand...almost like they put their hands over their ears, clamp their eyes shut and yell, "LALALALALALAYAYAYAYAY, I CAN'T HEAR YOUOOOO!!!", like a petulant little child. What's up with that?!? Like yelling trumps reason.

    The "sound of distant thunder" has never been louder...in my ears, anyway. And I know some of you agree.
