    His actual legacy may be very similar to Jimmy Carter's.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Worth noting, however, is that the poll is of registered rather than likely voters, which will lean slightly D, and that "hoping the opposition really screws up" is not a terribly good strategy. Gonna be funny to watch Democrats begin to swing against ole O-Care.

    Both parties are equally crap, we just teeter totter between which one we're pissed off at in any given moment. That's why Republocrat rule ensures that nothing changes.

    Who is supposed to be proud of what now?
    Ignoring the fact that the "comeback" in the stories title is about poll numbers, not electoral accomplishments....and ignoring the fact you just basically flat out admitted that ACA is nothing but a purposeful measure to move towards single payer....what you just typed is hardly some kind of sterling exaltation of the Democrats or condemnation of Republicans. Let's take your general premise here....Democrats accomplished "Good" action, Republicans accomplished "Bad" action. With that in mind, the fact that Republicans poll numbers have moved back up and they're running neck and neck with the Democrats is hardly a "good" sign for Democrats. Republicans do this seemingly horrible thing in your mind as they "stomp their feet" and "make a big fuss" and Democrats push through legislation for "Overall better healthcare"....and yet their neck and neck in the public eye in regards to these polls.

You on the other hand seem to believe that welfare directed at Republicans is a tax cut which makes you exactly the kind of person Democrats of today love. After all we all know that the govt. needs the money more than the individual taxpayer, right?

    You misused the word "shock".

    Firstly, in your title it should be "shocking".
    Secondly, nothing about the comeback/reversal is shocking. Humans are a fickle breed.

    No, but apparently you are since you have no idea what I was responding to. Here is what you posted


    Republicans like welfare when they're on the receiving end.
    Republican welfare to a liberal like you is keeping more of what a person earns.

    It's post #15. While it's understandable that a habitual liar such as yourself might be having trouble keeping your stories straight, put a little more effort into it next time.
