    Another important thing to note about this is that Obama has yet again failed to deliver votes for his Democrat minions. I guess that's the end of "run in, blame Bush, and hope for the best" strategy for stumping.

    Hopefully the Obama Kool-aid drinkers have come out of their stupor and realized that Obama was leading us down the road to Communism. Matthews on MSNBC openly admitted his Marxist leanings. We had partisan Democrats come out and say they would cheat to win this election it was so important for them to change this nation from a democratic nation to a communist nation. We were on the precipice and stepped back from the abyss.

    Having said this, the word is that Obama still intends to ram this misbegotten health bill through regardless of how many seats are lost in November. This is a modern version of the Charge of the Light Brigade.

    Obama is the worst president in U.S. history. And the worst is yet to come.

    The point is that people voted for him based on the above platforms. The electorate is changing. People no longer care as much about the social issues.

    He won because he campaigned against Obamacare and the people of Massachusetts already have government insurance; a lot of them are very disappointed with it, as they should be, and the ones who do like it don't want national health insurance either. That's not to say his fiscal conservatism wasn't crucial in his victory, because it underpinned his entire message, but you seem to be overplaying the significance of his socially conservative stances, like abortion and gay marriage.

    Moreover, his stance on the aforementioned issues can't really be encapsulated by simplistic terms like, "pro-life" and "anti-gay marriage". They're a little more nuanced than that.

    So maybe drop the iceberg analogy. More like an ice cube.
    This throws a giant wrench in the Obama machine. I'm positively thrilled right now.

    I think this is the "real" lesson of the last election. The democrats thought the country wanted a liberal regime with liberal policies. I think the american public was simply tired of bush's spending policies. I'm with you. The republicans, assuming they win big this fall, better come through for us.
