    I grew up a Democrat just like many others I knew but the Democrat Party left us. You see results matter and eventually most educated people understand that spending in the name of compassion that really doesn't generate compassionate results meaning solving a problem just creates more dependence. Sorry, but I provide more compassion with my money than the Federal Govt ever will because I don't give it to a bureaucrat for Administrative costs

    Which has nothing to do with why Democrats don't vote for Republicans. You see, when you disagree with a candidate, you tend not to vote for them.

    I was a Democrat that voted for Republicans and am a Conservative that will vote for a Democrat. Resume and record mean everything.

    But would yo agree it should be managed? Perhaps with a budget?

    Our problem is that we have too many people who don't understand that our economy isn't strong enough due to poor leadership to sustain a 17 trillion dollar and growing debt.

    I would also agree that the budgeting process need not be interrupted in a last ditch effort to "get your way".
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Management isn't a concept that Obama understands nor tries to understand. A lot of focus is on spending as it should be but too little focus is being generated towards the millions and millions of unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers who aren't paying much if any in FIT. Obama proposed a 3.77 trillion dollar budget showing he has little concern for spending cuts and has done nothing about the unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers believing apparently that he can extract enough out of those evil rich people to fund the liberal spending appetite, yet another mistake by Obama.

    The right only likes black or female, or basically any politician, if they're a Republican. When's the last time you heard a Con say anything nice about Nancy Pelosi? Does that mean they're sexist too, or is that partisan?
    No one has been as unfairly attacked as much as Sarah Palin, with only Michelle Bachmann coming close. Their actual policies are very seldom discussed, they are only attacked as human beings.

    Nancy Pelosi has been attacked more for her policies and politics than who she is as a human being.

    But this has what the left has made America. If there is any Republican who might be a candidate for the Presidency they are immediately set upon by the low info leftists who savage these people personally, say they are 'afraid', but are never intelligent or well informed enough to ever discuss actual policies. This deliberate dumbing down of the American voter is costing the country dearly.

    He proposed billions in stimulus and shovel ready jobs and nothing happened. He sad sequestration would collapse the country, that people would be thrown in the streets, and nothing happened. Instead the debt grows, the country gets ever more more discouraged and the stupids want more of the same.

    Yeah, Palin didn't dumb down our political discourse or anything. I mean she reads all the papers and her knowledge of the Bush doctrine is incredibly scholarly.

    If conservatives try real hard to pretend that Palin has an IQ over 80, maybe people with 80 IQs will believe them.
