    Obamacare hasn't even shown its ass yet.
    To be fair and equal, wait until a 19 year old stripper finds out she's paying for some guys testicular cancer surgery. You know it's a pool, right? Not a one for one exchange of service costs.

    Yes, I don't approve of Obama either but I'm not happy about it. When he leaves in 3 more years, we'll have had 16 years of piss-poor leadership. I suppose we'll survive it and then the next moron can be elected.

Obama was at 44% when the republicans gained the house back in 2010 and almost the senate by picking up 6 seats. These are the only elections where at least once chamber switch parties during a mid term. The one thing they have in common is whoever was president, his approval rating were at least 44% or lower.
    Speaking of approval ratings and Congress, how are those numbers doing?

    You have to admit that the Obama diciples are way more fanatical.
    Oh-oh. The dreaded 'Libbos' reference. That's a cue to disregard everything in the post as being just mindless, partisan drivel.

    The Obamabots have defended him since before he was elected. Why would they change their fanatical thinking now? Just blame Republicans and the disciples get in line to point fingers. Republicans even got blamed for the disaster called healthcare.gov. Right Kathleen Sebelius?

    How many young people who voted for him will change their thinking when they start paying Obamacare premiums?

    Or maybe the lemmings will just jump off a cliff? Tick tock...

    Congress, that really doesn't mean all that much since most people love their own congressmen but hate the other 434. What is interesting is Charlie Cooks and Larry Sabato's sites who rate the races district by district. Per these pro's who job it is to call elections and advise both parties, the house is looking like this on 30 Oct 2013, solid/safe seats: Republicans 199 Democrats 165, Likely/Lean seats 32 Republicans, 26 Democrats and toss up seats, 3 Republicans and 10 Democrats. You can do the math to see exactly how likely the Democrats chances are for winning back the house. Not very good. But with a year to go, who knows, things changes.

    In the senate the Repubicans are looking real good at picking up 3 Democratically held seats, Montana, West Virginia and South Dakota and have a 50-50 shot at Arkansas. Not enough to win back the senate. On the other side of the ledger, the democrats have a chance at Georgia a republican held seat, but that seat is classified as Lean republican. But again, we are still a year out and who knows what issues or events will take place between now and then. But this give you a pretty acurate account of what would happen if the election were held today.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Especially when they are habitual liars. And these numbers were from a week ago before the latest, uh, developments.
