    Democrats are either defecting or running from the fight. I'm particularly sad I won't get to see Dodd's concession speech after getting trounced by 20+ points.

    It's fascinating to watch this suicide mission of the Democrats hurrying to pass all this crap nobody wants before they go down with the ship. It's puzzling, especially if conservatives do the right thing and undo it as quickly as possible once they get in power and regain the presidency in 2012.
    It's fun watching your all's desperation.

    Not that I agree that their NHS is better than our private health care, but do you know why they can offer a NHS in the first place?

    LOL, that's just bull. Your head is spinning at how fast this thing is circling the drain on you guys. You're losing, and are in danger of losing, some of the most no-brainer Democrat spots in the nation.

    I'd expect Venezuela to elect a Republican before some of these offices.

    I imagine that people who have been laid off and are getting by on unemployment while they look for work are happy for the help.

    Nanny State = safety net programs supported to some degree by both parties.

    So, when you're talking about Dems vs. Reps, it's really how much 'nanny' in the 'state'. I think you'll find that Republican congressmen who represent lower-income conservative Christians will favor, at least in speeches, an expansion of public assistance and jobs programs. And Democrats who happen to represent higher-income liberals, will favor a conservative tax code--especially for corporations.

    There is this misconception that the GOP is a friend to the middle class and small business owners. At the federal level, most of our representatives haven't been 'middle class' since they finished law school.

    The mid-terms should be interesting. The Tea Party conservatives need to keep in mind that moderates and independents do not find hyper-partisan signs and slogans appealing.

    We agree with you on bail-outs and new taxes, but you start screaming 'Baby Killer' or 'Marxist' in our face, and we're out. You'll lose moderates and independents with that b.s. McCain/Palin were ahead in the polls after the GOP Conventions--but then Sarah opened her idiotic mouth.

    Drop the Palins, Bachmans, and Inhofes.

    I like Barbara Boxer, but if a smart fiscal conservative steps up with pragmatic solutions, I'll listen to everything he/she has to say.

    Because we live in a regulated economy and not a Laissez Faire one? Not to mention there is a cap on how unskilled your workers can be before they become financially undesirable.
