    Voting for hope and change shows the real stupidity of the American Democrat base. Guess nothing is ever going to change the Gruber Crowd. It seems that Obama offers of hope and change differed from the hope and change beliefs of the American electorate

    I explained it quite well so my suggestion to you is get a fourth grader to read it for you and tell you what I stated.

    Sorry, but the party of Obama, Reid, and Pelosi don't represent my views at all. If you support a third party build it from the ground up, not the top down.

    Lol....

    Says the guy who equated " Hope and Change " to Presidential qualifications.

    What if those " visions " offered up by Obams in 2008 and 2012 were just lies ? I wasn't duped.

    Were you ?

    I'm not saying vote Democrat. I'm saying you're too much of an idealist.

    Are you saying you aren't? Why would anyone vote Democratic today?

    Not nearly as much as most posters here. I think politicians should reveal as little as possible about what they think they want to do. Most of the time I think most of you folks are overly whiny.

    I vote Democrat sometimes because I like government. I vote for parties based on what I think they can realistically get done. I have little problem on voting for a candidate I don't in any way care for if they are unlikely to change much.

    Betraying my principles is my first action.

    They were possibly lies, unless the President truly believed that nonsense about changing Washington.

    Although I think it a good thing to sucker voters to believe in something, I wouldn't oversell it like Obama did.

    For that matter, I wouldn't oversell it like the Tea Party fools do on a regular basis.

    No, Anybnody and anything with an (R) next to his name represents your views, no matter what they are.

    If Republicans has proposed and pushed through Obamacare you'd have said "Getting those bums to actually take responsibility for their own healthcare"

    One need only look at the direction of the outstretched hand waiting for it to be filled to know how likely someone will vote for a political party.
