      You don't know anything about current events! The republicans may be opposed to the President's socialist agenda, but they don't have the numbers to stop him from passing anything!

      It's been Obama's OWN party, the democrats that have stopped health care, and rightly so!

    Alright, let's go over some things.

    1.) I detest Sarah Palin too. The right way to go about discrediting her isn't to call her an ugly Barbie. That just makes you look ignorant--name calling usually does.

    2.) You do need to work on your current events, and government establishment while you're at it. The Democrats have the very large majority right now. If 100% of the Democrats in congress wanted things passed, things would pass, and the Republicans wouldn't be able to do much to stop it.

    Am I siding with Republicans? Certainly not. But if you're going to try to make an argument, you should do it right.

    I don't understand much about politics, mostly because I don't follow them. However, I DO know that, Democrats outnumber Republicans right now, so if nothing is going through, that means there are quite a few Republicans AND Democrats voting against it.

    Calling Sarah Palin an ugly Barbie doll, by the way, may be a great argument if you're trying to convince some third graders, but it discredits your opinion to most adults.

    Furthermore, don't blame politicians for the recession we're currently in. Yes, they made a big impact on how the economy has changed, but so did normal American citizens.

      funny how when things go bad it's the Republicans fault.  When things are going well it's the Republican's fault they aren't going better.  When absolutely nothing's getting done it's the Republican's fault.  The Democrats have controlled the House and Senate since 2007.  They've had a super majority in each since Obama was elected.  He doesn't need a single Republican to do anything.  He has to blame someone just has he has his whole life.  He's a child in a mans body.  A spoiled brat pointing the finger at everyone else.
