    The level of AQNGER/FRUSTRATION/DISCONTENT is unprecedented.

      The level of A/F/D is driven directly by the obvious lack of respect Democrats have for the people.

        This is even more so the case for Republicans adn the Tea Party, the parties of "No" and "Hell no"

            Republicans are having a major problem with the Tea-Party.

    The anger is driven by fox news and talk radio!
    AND the horrible people these people put up there as candidates.
    I was watching the Fiorini/Boxer debate, and all Fiorini did was insult Boxer....on EVERY question. Sort of like weholdthesetruths does here.
    Does not answer a question with fact or a reason for disagreeing....simply insults the person speaking.
    Fiorini must have said "bitter partisan" and "do nothing senator" a million times.

    Meanwhile, SHE is the one sounding bitter and partisan!! People like her are the reason for the anger, and it is directed at the wrong people. It is not the Dems being in power that caused this
    mess--this is from 8 years of a Republican presidency and 12 years of them controlling Congress.
    And their only actions since Obama was elected is to obstruct and insult.

    Really really pathetic. And the cause of the division and hatred that is here in America now above all else.
    They should be shamed of themselves, but that would take an iota of humanity---which they do not possess, IMO.

      Only your division and hatred are in evidence.   

      The TEA Party wants nothing but sane fiscal policies and the reduction of the reach, actions, and scope of government back to it's legal boundaries.

      Frankly, chris, your paid trolling is really obnoxious.    No thinking person actually believes any of this "Democrats = saviors, Republicans = devil" crap you spew endlessly.    You haven't got the faintest idea what needs to be done, or why, or how. 

      You haven't got a clue how the economy works, why we're experiencing seriously financial meltdown, and why everything our nutcase president wants to do is stupid beyond comprehension.   

      If you'd like to make the case for massive tax increases, and how government spending is more productive than the private economy, please try, instead of this nonsensical partisan trolling.

        I told you: 8 years of Republican presidency, 12 years of Republican control of Congress!!!

        What is their solution? Extend the tax give-aways for the very top.

        GEEEEE, that will work! NOT. Definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over and over and over ...........
        They are like wind-up robotons. tax-cuts for wealthy, cut $$ from poor and middle class, tax-cuts for wealthy, cut $$ from poor and middle class.

    left wing- right wing.. it's all part of the same turkey.

    I just wish the right didn't have such far out radicals speaking for them lately (angle, palin, etc etc)

    it's a spooky situation but it doesn't matter, honestly. Clinton was president two terms and dems didnt have house or senate. He just vetoed all the crazy stuff they tried to force through.

    smile hopefully Obama's the same.

    Just remember it was a Republican governor who brought universal health care to Massachusetts, with a personal mandate requiring insurance. Not all Republicans are cut from the same cloth.

      That is true.

      Not all Republicans are real Republicans.

      We refer to them as RINO's.

      The quicker they are defeated the better.

      A look at Massachusetts health care system and what it does for you.

          Can you explain what, specifically, makes going along with raising taxes, massive overspending, monumental debt, along with attempts to centralize the economy "rational"?    There's nothing rational about anything the Democrats have done, proposed, or wanted,  in at least 30 years.

            OK, but first explain to me the virtues of blind obedience to the thugs who needlessly sacrificed hundreds of thousands of innocent lives in their latest crusade, put us into an economic depression, turned a national budget surplus into massive, perpetual deficits, perpetuates the myth that we are at war with Islam, scapegoats Mexicans, Muslims and Gays as sources of America's problems (as Goebbels, the first teabagger, did with Gypsies and Jews). 

            It's all academic at this point, so we're just arguing for argument's sake.  The demographic realities are about to cleanse the country of the conservative scourge for generations.

              So, you really don't know what needs to be done, or what's wrong, or how to fix it.   

              All you know is that you hate those who are disagreeing with you, because you think that they stand between you and paradise - and are doing so just to hurt you.

              Utopians are always interesting.  ALWAYS wrong, but in a sort of "oh, my God, I can't look, nor stop myself from looking at the horror" way.

          I can always count on you to offer up a substantial comment.

          Every time liberals acquire power they go completely off the reservation.

          They misunderstand what the people want.

          Bush was a train wreck and I can admit that, he spent and spent and when change was offered up the people jumped at it.

          We didn't want more out of control spending we wanted change from out of control spending.

          Obama ran as a moderate and fooled enough of the independents into thinking he would govern as one.

          The Republicans will gain in the November elections and its possible they will take control of the House and Senate.

          The test will be can they learn from their mistakes and steer the economy back to where they once had it.

            I looked ahead in the teachers' edition.  The answer is no.

            IF the Republicans gain control of anything, they will only be able to maintain it by "refudiating" (ref: teabaggers dictionary) the wingnuts and legislating like "RINOs".

            Scott Brown is the prototypical RINO in teabag clothing.  He pandered to the useful idiots to get elected...

            ...how's that working out?

              You're wrong.

              Your name calling reflects the stress you're be under knowing whats about to happen.

            LOL, JIM, you are far too willing to tell little white lies to avoid hurting people's feelings. 

            Liberals do know what people want.   That's NEVER been at issue.  The issue with liberals is that believe they are intellectually, morally, and educationally so superior to the average person, that they have a divine, moral, or some other way justified, right to control the people for their own good.

        I have become such a believer in states' rights. You have your Republicans and I have mine. And if they're a Senator they each get one vote. The constitution is a beautiful thing.

          Ok, but Romney has or at least had aspirations to be my leader.

          Republicans need to get rid of the RINO's and actually do what real Republicans want done.

          Be fiscally conservative, limit what the federal government can do to what the constitution says its responsibility is.

          If the Republicans win back the houses of congress this is what will be expected.

    True, but we get to have a big, long election before that happens, maybe the primaries will feature Romney vs. Palin. So the Republicans can have a real slug fest.

      Maybe.

      I'm sure there are more qualified people who can run.

      Romney wont get the nomination, I doubt Palin will even consider running.

      We'll see.

    The anger is driven by reality.  Boots on the ground, nose to the grindstone, real live reality.  The reality where people you know personally have lost long held jobs.  The reality where you yourself along with neighbors and friends are attending town hall meetings, city council meetings, political rallies and you are being called names for doing it by your representatives, even by your president.

    The politicians who have lost all respect for the electorate and who demonstrate that lack of respect will pay in November and in the years to come.

    That magical president, the tone deaf, do nothing Obama and his incompetent administration along with the arrogant Democrat Congress have awakened a sleeping lion.   If they want to bully Americans they're going to have to do it with something stronger than a propaganda press and shoving reams of legislation down our throats.  We aren't stupid and we aren't weak.

      It is driven by the people who own a business and find that they'er being whipsawed financially so bad they may go broke, or have to lay people off.   Economic downturn is bad enough to try to ride through and still survive, what's worse is when the economy goes bad, and the government targets you for destruction.
