    I sometimes wonder what really drives parties. By blocking just about everything the party in power wanted to do and not finding a compromise makes me wonder on the intelligence of the party. Can you really say "their policies did not work!"? Seems like answer would be IF allowed our policies would of worked but you blocked just about all of them? Also by allowing the extra unemployment bill that passed .. then blocking employment bills... you setup up the point about that people are dependant on government... The puppet master in the republican party is not a master but a clown

    • Fed Up With Media Bias and propaganda slingers

      My question is; "Why hasen't this been Obvious before now?? (Obama), I mean,the issue really is deeper than "Romney vs Obama, or Dems. vs Reps. common how shallow.
      just look at everything that has gone on this past 4 years?, the most recent (besides the murdered border patrol agent inside the U.S), the way they were eager to blame the stupid video producer and for over a week hiding the inconvient truth about what REALLY happened, and the lack of security requested but denied by his administration ,on his watch, using his policies..... bring labout the death of our US ambassador Chris,and 3 other Americans!" – to be perfectly clear.., the President and his admin. is not at ALL as TRANSPARaNT as they have made us believe they were, admit it, he failed the smell test again, and for what?.. I am starting to believe personal gain, I might somewhat venture to say borderline sociopathic??! (look it up ) and I voted for him!? but what really scares me most is that the media has "loved him so much that they have become enablers to him", really", they have become enablers by covering up for him or not making him accept responsibility for anything..or not asking the "real hard" reporters questions for the public-us anymore??. why??
      This has gone on for so long now in regards to Obama , his policies and this admin. I'm afraid that results from this "new day media bias" has, and is, damaging the process ....and the effectiveness, of our democracy as we have known it, and I fear it might already be too late to repair the damage that He and the media has caused for the rest of of little americans... no jobs , taxes going up in Jan. can barely afford the energy and gas prices this term??? &we sure are not as safe as we were 4 years ago either?! " both on our US borders and abroad??, and that is not a congress-thing. the media and the President was suppose to defend the American People!?, I quess that policy ended in 2007.

    The real bummer is that neither of these campaign surrogates really said anything I hadn't heard a billion times from their SuperPAC advertising.

    (And let's be real: the lineup everyone really wanted was Christie/Daniels vs. Bill Clinton Term No. 3.)

    Is it too late for David Walker to put up an Independent bid?
