Well,,,, I finely heard it,,,,
WASHINGTION IS BROKEN,,, and,,, Mitt Romney, SAID IT...
Um, and you think no one else has noticed this?
sorry.. i did miss that part ... i was listening closely for when he would bring up veterans in the discussions on foreign policy.. you know.. the people who fight and risk their lives for you....
I agree that Washington is broken. But I don't care that Romney said it. I'm saying it. That understanding that I have about what he said does not endear me to him at all.
Any American (and at least one Canadian I know) sees this rubbish for what it's worth. If you can't see this garbage, as a voter or as a person looking at what's going on, then you are blind.
Any thinking person missed nothing about last night. Two talking heads going at it. Bunch of crap.
Time to retire to Fiji.
It's a Republican refrain like the national anthem. They been saying if for fifty years, mostly at intervals of four. It mean socialism is broken.
I don't think you can say anything other than that the Washington process (House, Senate, lobbying) is hopelessly deadlocked.
A situation both parties and many other players are contributing to.
It has become worse, so I think it could become better again. But in terms of the financial situation and the terrible state of major omnibus bills, it will be a difficult job. It will take a president and leader of the opposition who can actually work together--and I don't think we have that.
Capitalist democracy is democracy for the rich and not so much for everyone else. If only the rich can afford the office then naturally the office supports only the rich. The rich are not famous for ever doing anything to lessen their power, so probably only collapse will bring change. As the supreme court said: money is free speech. Money rides - talk walks.
I don't mean to be disrespectful but there are many very worthy groups he could have mentioned, but no reason to expect he would in any given debate in response to specific questions that may not lend themselves to that discussion.
Who didn't bring up veterans?
Obama did. More than once.
I just LOVE how the Republicans create a situation, Obama gets the blame for it, then they turn around and accuse him of the very thing they themselves caused.
"We've got to learn to work across the aisles."
How many elder statesmen (and women) do we need to hear on this? That is how Washington has ALWAYS worked. It hasn't always worked perfectly. But D and R congresspeople would cooperate.
This insanely partisan deadlock is -- what a shock -- all for Obama's benefit. Or I guess i should say his demise.
That, too, is well documented.
The idea that an entire party is willing to sign the Nordquist pledge, is willing to not sign jobs bills, is willing to hold the American people hostage during an economic crisis -- just to get Obama out -- blows my mind.
IF Romney gets in, the Dems should give him a dose of the medicine The GOP gave Obama. But of course they won't. They don't have that kind of sang froid.
Those congressman were sent to D.C. to represent their constituents, why would you want the
majority will squashed? I sent my Rep. to block Obama not to get along!
Thank you for your honesty, RG.
That is a singularly insular point of view, and I have no doubt your congressman has done a stellar job on your behalf.
Binders seems to have disappeared into the ether.
Meme of the day: Sequester.
Actually he has done a fantastic job and you should hear his latest ad. As for binders I decided it was rather stupid, interesting the psycho (Lilly Ledbetter) who was offended by it didn't see that before she ran off at the mouth. Actually, its not that interesting I expect that kind of stuff from your side.

To me, Obama seemed tired and distracted and Mitt seemed energized. (Of course, not knowing what the "job" entails and how hard change comes could account for some of that.) My husband, who is a...

Never in my life have I seen such vitriol directed at our current POTUS and our former POTUS. Some people didn't like Clinton or Daddy Bush, some made fun of Ford and thought Carter was inept, and some thought Ronnie...

I saw this Dr. John Whitley on Anderson Cooper tonight. I will have to find that clip. Anderson chewed him up good and spat him out.But the real question is -- do they honestly have nothing better to offer the citizens...

when I went to a private club/restaurant that we belong to. All of them voted for Obama, but none are happy with him. One wants Hillary to challenge him in 2012, two said they'd vote dem in 2012 if someone other than BO...
