    Well, if they keep coming out in favor of laying down to Obama's progressive agenda, then I would say you're probably right. Problem is that our politician's aren't listening to the people.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    The 1st ten votes you cast for him were more than sufficient...

    If they are smart, the GOP will run on "a return to sanity."

    But then, when has the GOP ever been smart?

    I voted for him only three times, I couldn't vote for him a fourth time.

    Nope - I said the opposite.

    I suspect the GOP will take the senate 52 seats to 48. Then we find out if Obama has any cojones.
    Would you like your crow deep fried or BBQ'd to go with that side of snot?

    No, they're pretty much positioned themselves as the enemy of all the people of this country. That's why they keep pouring the middle and working classes' money into the rich, waste even more money and lives warmongering in the Middle East, destroying the social safety net, thwarting any attempts to embrace new technology in energy or transportation, trying to privatize control of the internet, and generally wreck any chance that young people have of not spending our whole lives in debt. They shut down the government once already in a refusal to pay the bills that they ran up. I wouldn't be surprised if they do it again.

    And that's just the economic damage they're wreaking.
    Ok so I was right. You are not only claiming the GOP is the enemy of the democrats, but also the entire country.

    That's a pretty broad brush to stroke there. Every single thing you claim is bad about the GOP can also equally be said about the democrats. Including the wars in the middle east. As far as shutting down the government, I would say both sides are equally to blame for that happening.

    Saying all that I do not look at the Democrats as being my enemy or an enemy of the country. Neither side seems to want to work together anymore. The dismal poll numbers for Congress certainly don't just come from the Democrat side.

    Good day.

    I voted for him once in the primary and twice in the general.
