    You know, it does seem that way sometimes. If Obama came up with a foolproof plan for world peace, many Republicans would point out how he's bent on world domination and how the plan would bankrupt us in ten years. For many in the GOP, I think it's Republicans first, and the Republic second.

    BTW, I'm a registered Independent and am equally critical of both extremes.

    That is funny!! Because I think that Obama thinks he can do just that. He always seems suprised when people disagree with him. As if everything he does is "foolproof".

    But of course we've seen that he's wrong because as soon as the fools get a hold of anything he tries to do, they ruin it.

    Just saw a chance for a good (I thought) comeback. Actually I'm equally critical of Democrats who wanted to hurry up and pass Obamacare, then read it over and fix it later (ready, fire, aim) as I am of Republicans who voted as a unified bloc to defeat it simply because quick passage would have been a big victory for their political adversary. I don't doubt that there are men and women of honor in both parties, but unfortunately, they must play politics to survive.

    AH, that is exactly the hard core partisan response Spider is talking about. And before you say I am partisan..... I don't even vote outside my county anymore, and could careless who is in power. Could careless about any of the bills and laws from health care to immigration to energy. To me all politicians and the two major political parties are basically the same..... they want power, they want to control people, they want to spend money like crazy, and the only difference between so-called conservatives, and liberals, is what they want to spend money on, and how they want to control us.

    I had a bit of an epiphany after all those weeks in the hospital, and all of those months nursing a crippled and brain injured child back to health; national politics is toxic and in reality very little of what they do affects my day to day life. So I adopted a; if it isn't in front of me then I don't worry all that much about it, attitude. A good side effect of the new attitude is my BP dropped from well over 200 to around 170.

    On the otherhand, if getting all worked up with the whole political game works for you then it is all good.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    What is wisely? Should we cut social programs? Should we get the hell out of Iraq and Afghanistan? These are two completely different spending programs. I say stop throwing billions into those two countries and spend it on truly keeping America safe. I'd rather my tax dollars go to helping my fellow countrymen and women. That is real patriotism.

    The repubs never mention saving money by getting out of those two wars. It's always about cutting spending on social programs and education. To me, that's plain wrong. Why penalize Americans to help Muslims in the middle east? Wharped thinking.

    Please explain your last two sentences in more detail and try to show where this is true.
    Please show me where the republican members of congress directly gave Obama credit? Please show me where Dick Armey and other teabag leaders directly gave Obama credit?

    Careful Chance, you're bordering on one of your usual ad hominem tantrums.

    He and Chance and Ugly hate Obama's guts. If they say differently, they are lying. They defend Bush and his non-spending policies to the death. I don't take it personally when the consistent hatred is thrown at Obama. I enjoy the hypocrisy.

    The party of Hell No doesn't have reasonable solutions that help the middle class. Now they are defending Wall Street while trying to make it seem like they care about the rest of us.

    The funny thing about the HCR bill is that it will dump millions more folks right into the for profit insurance industry. One would think the party of Hell No would understand that.

    BTW, check the latest WAPO poll and see how it is starting to backfire. The election is still 6 months away. We'll see what happens.
