    The problem is no one vote for something they believe but they always vote against something. This is a sad day that the right wing conservative zealot of the GOP are going to gain even more political power.

    people look for that magical "D" or "R" next to a candidates name when they vote. things do NOT change much when either one is in power.

    Go Republicans. I see nothing wrong with warmonger McCain heading up Armed Services Committee and James Inhofe, noted science scholar, as head of the Science Committee.

    did you really have to mention McCain this early in the morning? it's almost breakfast time (making black beans for the first time) and you already got me sick with that name :mad:. McCain should be in a retirement home.

    that would be so awesome.

    But...there are so many wars left to start. This is no time for him to retire.

    and invest in the infrastructure. America's roads and bridges are falling to pieces.

    is Obama not part of the WH? is he out already? :rolleyes:

    we need to bomb our roads & declare war in our cities BEFORE we can start sending aid & building them back up.

    If only. If we dumped all the incumbents and broke up all the clubs, collusions and backroom deals between the parties and corporations we'd be better off.

    But these days there are very few real seats in play, and most people are stupid and only care about the D and R.

    Want to make the country a better place? Dump your incumbent. 1 to 2 terms tops, and then bye bye.

    would be nice if we simply dropped the "R" & the "D" from them & let voters at least try to figure out WHO "represents" them.

    Don't try to use sarcasm to wiggle your way out of a blatant lie. I have no problem with you wanting to bash Obama but its pretty pathetic that you need to resort to misrepresenting the quotes of another individual as being those from the president.

    That would make everyone actually learn about the issues that they vote on. They seem not be willing to actually learn on who they are voting on.

    as stated, let me know when Obama is not part of the WH. or are you implying that Obama was out golfing & did not know anything about the statement being released? does the WH spokeman simply release statements on his own? :rolleyes:



    few if any care. or they are busy/content with their lives enough to simply trust the 2 major crap houses.

    I voted against my incumbent in my Congressional district during the primary. Unfortunately, he won. I voted for him in the general election as I did not want to vote for his Democrat opponent.

    I'm pretty heavy in favor of the Ds. But today I was reading about the candidates in one race. When I read over the Ds website, I was kind of turned off. Thought maybe I would end up voting for the R on that one. Then I read the Rs website. Suddenly, the D didn't look so bad. Not great by any means, but certainly better than what I was reading from the R.

    That is a very bad thing. That's probably the biggest issue with the U.S.

    That's been my Congressional voting policy for years: vote against the incumbent.

    However, I've never voted for candidate who beat a sitting Congressman. That is such a rare occurrence I suspect most of us have never experienced that.

    ... until they show up lobbying Congress on behalf of the wealthy and powerful.
