    Well said, and I agree! And to think we actually pay our hard-earned dollars to these Doctor Kevorkian types to do us in! What's wrong with us?

    Greetings, Alyssa.

    I have to say that if Romney had won Id probably be pissed at him but I don't think he would have been as destructive as Obama is. I think the President matters but you're right, often office of the President is larger than the man who sits in it.

    I get that feeling too but I know that a Republican controlled congress would not have given us Obamacare. I doubt that a Republican president would have signed it into law. These differences aren't insignificant.

    Originally, what is now the affordable health care act was supported by Republicans in the 90s.

    Consumer Choice Health Security Act of 1994

    I've heard that a lot. Louis Black said, "Republicans get up in Congress and say, I've got a bad idea." Then Democrats get up and say. "and here's how we can make it ****tier." Thankfully Republicans didn't really work on the Heritage plan and were able to defeat Hillarycare.

    Hypocritical BS, as usual.
    The problem with Benghazi is that CBS put a person on the air who was not even there, and who lied through his teeth about what happened. In regard to the bridge fiasco, a couple of million people were there, and it was a pain in the ass for them. It was very real. But, in spite of "Bridgegate", I would still vote for Christie over Hillary Clinton, who reeks of Neoliberalism.
