    Under Obama I am ashamed of my country......He has ruined our reputation foreign and domestic......He might be a nice guy but as president he is totally clueless............More and more Americans are feeling the same way....His personal approval is in the 30 percentile now.

    I agree with the exception of Harry Reid being the most dangerous senator ever. I think his heart is probably in the right place, his mind however is poisoned by partisanship and he has chosen the coward's way to approach this. In my book, the most dangerous senator award goes to McCarthy but that's a different discussion for a different thread.

    The GOP still has the right to filibuster legislation and SCOTUS nominees and you know this will,
    so you're wrong on that one in trying to slam Sen. Reid.
    Senator Reid will be one of the most famous senators ever.
    How many straws did you need to break the camel's back??

    That is absolutely incorrect, as wrong as can be..
    Legislation is not included from today..I'll take it as your anti-Sen. Reid--hackery .

    Well, there is no accounting for taste, but interesting choice of words, really telling -- your feeling that you are "under" Obama...

    My pride of being an American and my pride of America isn't affected by which idiot politician is currently, and temporarily, sitting in the White House.

    None of it is etched in stone just because Marx wrote it...unless of course you are a communist and I don't believe you are.

    I'm most certainly not a Communist but I have no doubt whatsoever that a whole bunch of people in this country (and government) have a sincere appreciation for Leninism even if they have never been told that's what it is.

    In a very real way people who were born in the mid 70's and later never experienced full blown Marxism-Leninism. The Soviet Union is simply something they had to read about in school. They've probably never even heard of Shalamov or Solzhenitsyn and have no idea how a political concept that starts with noble intentions becomes warped into tyranny.
