    What do you think. This Sherry Sherrod stuff where FOX throws her out to dry. Screams fire her fire her. Then the next day rails on Obama and the administration about reacting to fast. Sick but humorous of FOX and the right. Not to mention the Obama has a plan for "white slavery" according to some factions of the tea party? I am sickened by the right, please comment.

      The Reich is more accurate. They're terminally saboteurs, cowards, and liars.

      The Republican Party authored many ideas Obama picked up on and tried to implement.  Of course, the Rethugs reversed their stance.  They've destroyed America and have done their best to block any change {with few exceptions} to make the economy pick up again and deal with the bills the 'Drunken Sailors' generated and clean up the mess they made during the 'W' administration.

      They're going to ensure failure, as the 60 votes aren't there, then blame Obama for not getting anything accomplished.

      The established Republican track record during the 'W' administration, and prior, has been to destabilize the US and put it on track to a 3rd world nation.  The country is well on its way.

      Republican efforts have all been to turn the US into a 'Haiti.'  Infrastructure destroyed, education decimated, environment polluted almost beyond measure, finances bankrupted, and people turned into serfs.

      They're the problem, not the solution.  It isn't a case about political party.  Its about the stability and effectiveness of the country as a whole.

      In the main, they've been working in lockstep to the detriment of the country while presenting themselves as a solution to the problems they've generated in the first place!

      The reich has gone well beyond the bend, through the woods, down the rabbit hole and are doing the Red Queen.

      Their actions come down to violations of oath of office {demos are guilty of this too} as well as the high crimes and misdemeanors which should be acted on as impeachable actions.

      Unfortunately, Obama has given the whole Bush administration a pass on all their crimes rather than taking them to task.  The demos are spineless.

      Such plays into their hands and they're aware they can do *anything* and not take responsibility for it.

      The actions of both parties are despicable, but the Reich is light years moreso.

      Quit playing your damn games and do the job you were elected and sworn to do!

      Sadly, the USSC has ruled industry can pay any price for a legislator and don't have to disclose it.

      The USA has become even more of a rogue nation under 'W.'

      The US was a grand experiment which would have worked if not for those who swore to uphold and defend the Constitution have been busy dismantling it from the inside.  Too bad, but that's the way it goes.

      Way tooooo far! In fact they have become so arrogant that they can actually call their 'follower's ignorant folks who don't understand the Constitution.  -Palin

      Even when shown that their "Leaders" think their 'followers' are stupid, their followers agree.

    Oh wait, that isn't go far, it's fargo, ND. My bad.

    Sorry Steve, didn't mean to go flippant on your thread. Yes, the middle to far right has gone absolutely cuckoo, and fully demonstrated their total lack of ethics.

        ANOTHER EXCUSE for Obama's inexperience and arrogance. The guy ( president of the united states ) has all the cards and up until Obama had 60 senators and a majority in the house controlled all parts of the government.
        Barak pushed thru Healthcare Reform, Financial Reform and took over the Student Loan program with Congress not even reading the bills or debating the bills before they were voted on and passed . Obama, Reid and Pelosi didn't need not any Republican votes to pass those bills. Wake up and try to get ahead of the propaganda that the Media, President Barak Obama, Reid and Pelosi  are putting out to the public.

    Very eloquently stated, stoneyy.
    I have trouble relating to extremes on either end of the political spectrum. But if I had to choose, I would choose elected officials whose policies do NOT, as you so rightly pointed out, contribute to the USA becoming dumber, dirtier and more degraded.
    Obama cannot turn this ship around all by himself, especially faced with constant berating and obfuscation from the right side of the aisle.
    During the W regime we had Iraq and terrorists to keep our little minds occupied. While we were busy chanting "Support Our Troops!" Bush and Cheney were stealing the country.
    Now we have a president who wants to address our problems head on. Forget that he has inherited a cesspool full of them.
    So what do the Republicans do now? They divert attention away from the real issues (jobs, healthcare, education, environment, homeland security) to micro-issues guaranteed to stir public fervor: Abortion, Second Amendment, gay marriage (still!!!), don't ask, don't tell, Is Shirley Sherrod racist? Is the NAACP racist? Should they build a mosque "at" Ground Zero? Should Obama be criticized for what he did/did not say about that topic? Does he speak in sentences that only law students can understand?
    Publicly, they are the party of "NO." But tactically, they are the party of "We control the conversation."
    Sorry Dems, but we've been losing this battle for a looonnnnng time.

      Thank you for the compliment. The Rethugs have been the 'tail wagging the dog' for a long time.  Sadly, they're the problem not the solution. And the Dems have no backbone.

      I've no use for either extreme nor the asinine toddler games that pass as politicking.  My interests lie in; the infrastructure being taken care of, the economy put back on track, and the environment not be turned into a toxic stew.

    “A safe, secure Israel, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the United States and its allies is essential to the continued liberty of our nations,” Brown said. “Our fates have never been more intertwined. May God continue to bless Israel and the United States of America.”

    That's my senator. Scott Brown, who I didn't vote for.

    god, guns and neo-cons. yech.

    My rep is Delahunt, who is retiring..didn't vote for him either.But running for his seat is a friend of Brown...an extreme teatard who was a dirty cop in his former life. Knew a girl was molested and did nothing to help her. In fact, told her parents she did it voluntarily.

    Yeah---we know what's going on and it's u g l y.

    Get the Repubs O U T!!!!!

    Oh, but lovemychris, Scott Brown is so good looking! Isn't that what we all want in our senators? Good looks? Why, I thought that was the most important thing!
    The candidate challenging my senator (Barbara Boxer) is Carly "Let's ship thousands of HP jobs overseas" Fiorina. Since her famous gaffe "oh -- I didn't know the mike was on when I made that catty, ridiculous comment about Barbara Boxer's hair style" I notice that she is now growing out her crew cut and now looks like a little old man.
    I also notice that she is using the phrase "America is at a Crossroads" a lot. Interestingly enough, I also just read that Mr. Karl Rove himself is on a tour (coming to CA any day now) spouting the very same "America/Crossroads" line.
    Is that the 2010 version of "It's morning again in America?"
    Bleh and double bleh.

    SORRY.....the hate wagon has been loaded-for-bear for a long time. Against Democrats.

    Time to fight back.

    Get the Repubs O U T!!!

    Privitized world. Not affordable to anyone but the wealthy. No thanks.

    And yeah mom...Brown is handsome...so is Perry for that matter.
    One of our local bloggers said Palin and Brown are the Ken and Barbie of the teatards!!

    Even though I don't think he's as far out there as Palin, Bachman-Turner-Overdrive and that loon from Nevada (black is an evil color-Fox should be our friend).

    But, he's for Big Business over all. No good when you don't have a lot of money. And this country is supposed to be for ALL people.
