    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    why do you say what he posted is fantasy?....seems to be the trend from what i'm seeing, the dems are closing the gap, and this election doesnt look like it will be the bloodbath the repubs are hoping for.

    Randel, yeah right.

    One article, based on one poll...

    Real "trend there".
    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - Generic Congressional Vote

    Check it out. ONLY Gallup has the Dem's up

    EVERY OTHER POLL has the GOP up from +2 to +11.

    You accuse me of wishful thinking why again?

    Who knew Phyllis Schlafly was still alive? Too funny. You didn't even bother to quote anything from her opinion hit job. It's pathetic.

    Chappy posted the opinion of one of the most respected election prognosticators in the business who says the Republican wave is subsiding.

    You merely rant and rave.

    Maybe THIS is why people don't like the Tea Party? Perhaps a group of people who can't tell a joke from reality have no place leading our "revolution"?

    Randel, back at it, I see, one line comments that actually say nothing. All I ever see from you are diversions from the Obama agenda. Tell us what Obama has done that has made this country economically better and also safer. As pointed out on other threads we have 16 million unemployed Americans, declining GDP, 3 trillion added to the debt and yet you are the one continuing to drink the kool-aid. Appears you are the typical obama cult follower

    Conservatives put us in a hole. Liberals employed a construction digger to make it deepe. Where do you turn in a two party system of idiots? Maybe we should all just pray and go radical.

    Let's see - since his inauguration, the stock market is up from 7929 to 10,465 or an increase of nearly 32%.

    The job creation index is at 11 now - it was at -1 when Obama took office: Gallup Daily: Economic Indexes

    Things are far from perfect; but everyone who is reasonable knows that the recovery from this collapse is going to take quite some time - years to get anywhere near normal. In fact, odds are "Normal" is never coming back.

    The only way to spark the economy is to start thinking dynamically. That's where Obama has slipped up, I think.

    The stimulus should have been spent on building new and improved infrastructure upon which private industry could thrive and grow. For instance, the government invented ARPAnet, which eventually became the internet, which eventually led to hugely successful industries that employ millions of Americans. We should be creating a new power grid that supports both old energy and new energy. We should be spending out way out of this in a much smarter manner than we are. On that, I agree.

    But things are better now than they were in 2008, it's just going to take several more years for them to get better. Company profits are up and they're hoarding cash. We must incentivise them into spending it in ways that create job growth and spur demand. All I see from Republicans are policies that will continue to support them hoarding their cash and continuing the constant cycle of money spiraling ever upward to the top 1-10% wealthiest Americans that began in earnest in the early 2000s. Hoarding harms the nation. I'm not against the wealthy being wealthy - but tax policy should reward hiring and investment and should punish hoarding by taxing interest on cash holdings at a rate that basically makes the interest near negative. This will force the "trickle down" that Conservatives seem to so adore.

    Re: A Turning Point For Democrats?

    Here is the thing about this, Mitch McConell the senator from my home state can't even keep his own party in check, instead of getting the golden boy he wanted, he was handed Rand Paul, a total nut who hasn't even been in the state for over 5 years. His competitor, and ultimately who will likely take Jim Bunning's seat is current Attorney General of Kentucky Jack Conway (D).

    Then you have that crazy lady in Nevada going up against Reid. Then you have the fact that anybody that Half-Term Palin promotes will immediately polarize themselves even amongst other conservative voters. The hilarious part about this is, Republicans conveniently have a plan later this year when (they think) they will win some more seats.

    How could anyone vote for these people when they intentionally sit around with their thumbs in their ass until they get their way? If more Democrats get rough and angry like Anthony Wiener, they should have no problems at all.
