    Yeah, and JFK would have to have been a conservative today as well.

    Both parties have moved to a more pronounced ideological stance within. To deny that is dishonest at its core.

    Agreed. Whoever runs against Obama MUST be considered. Even the "free stuff" some of the morons haven't gotten must make them question their love drunk vote they cast.

    I would like to see the birth of five parties in our system. Currently I feel it is extremely hard to find a canidate that even makes sense to me.

    You continue to show that you were either too young or weren't even around during the early Reagan years. Tip O'Neill was Speaker of the House and claimed that Reagan Budgets were Dead on Arrival so Reagan took his message to the American people and won the debate. The people forced their Representatives to vote for the Reagan Budgets and economic policy which led to the Reagan successes of the 80's. You really need a different history book and actually do some research.

    “Do something,” Thune said Wednesday after a town hall meeting at the Brandon Municipal Golf Course. “Why can’t you work together? There’s a high level of frustration with the inaction, and there’s a lack of confidence in the country and the economy. They want to see us get something done.”

    That’s one of the major insights he’ll take back to Washington, D.C. after the August recess, he said.

    It ranks behind “don’t cut my Social Security and Medicare. I’ve heard that quite a bit,” Thune said.

    Keep buying the liberal rhetoric and continue supporting the empty suit in the WH. The Obama results speak for themselves and have generate the current 38% approval rating. Apparently you know something the large majority in this country don't.

    The point is that Democrats voted for Reagan's agenda, which he never could have passed without them. In contrast, the American people clearly support many parts of Obama's agenda (e.g. repeal tax cuts for wealthy), but Republicans could not care less. They oppose Obama no matter what he does and no matter whether he has public opinion on his side. Wake up.

    The point is Reagan went to the American people and Democrats who wanted to keep their job saw the support the people had for Reagan and 60 of them voted for the Reagan tax cuts. Obama had total control of Congress for 2 years and drove up the debt and instead of creating policies promoting job growth he bailed out unions and created the job killer called Obamacare. Your comments are typical of the 38% that still support Obama, out of touch with reality.

    That's right, the Democrats, unlike today's republicans, were actually responsive to what the American people wanted. The fact that republicans are not responsive will come back to bite them on the a$$ next year.
