    Ohhhh, baby... it's a wild world....
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

It really is a shame that we have such a dumbing down of the electorate.
    One could argue that about all sides.

    **** look at the Rally to "Restore Honor".

    What was so amazing and original about it. Main message: Return to God, Support the troops.

    How will that solve your problems? Is god gonna magically fix the budget.

    Obama never claimed he could fix everything magically (well... sort of) he said there'd be setbacks, he said there'd be hard times.

    Whatevers ones feelings are, on your situation, where the country is headed.

    All the rally was trying to say was... lets take it easy guys, lets take a deep breath and realise, we're not all nut jobs like the fringes of both sides. And he's right, the vast population of America is not alleged to either side in trenches. Some midterms in these last few years have had voter turnout as low as 35%... you call that a country rising up? Nope. Most people are too concerned living their daily lives, shopping and worrying about Brangelina, to give 2 ****s about this stuff.

    That's reality.

    The people my state elected is in the minority and didn't vote for this massive expansion of govt. Our Founders didn't believe in the strong central govt. that has been created and knew that power corrupts. The apathy of so many allowed that massive expansion to happen. We will see tomorrow whether the people want that trend to stop. If you truly understood civics then you would understand that the problems we face today are the responsibility of both the President and Congress. You would also understand that Obama didn't inherit a thing that he didn't help create. He was in the Democrat controlled Congress that was in charge since January 2007.

    Obama did claim he could fix everything and has been running for office longer than he was a Senator. He also claimed that he would bring people together. He has done neither fix the problem or bring people together. The results matter, not the rhetoric.

    The Restore Honor was not a political rally. The Comedy Central rally was co opted and was a political rally.

    Unfortunately there are too many that have adopted the "I don't care" position thus we are being governed by a minority. The voter turnout shows that. It is time for all to take notice as to what is going on in the country and to get involved. Please name for me one economic prediction that Obama has made that has been accurate?

    Divide 87,000 into 215,000 = ???


    2.5


    Glenn who?
    Wow, your party lacks the integrity to even quote accurate attendance figures? This is an example of why tomorrow shouldn't be a shock to you.

    No, but God's advice, I'm pretty sure, wouldn't be to add $1 trillion to it.

    Yep. Because the GOP really extended their hand in friendship with the current president to solve America's problems...

    When what they did was oppose absolutely everything, not offer a single good or fresh idea, and are now campaigning on almost the EXACT ****ING same thing they campaigned on in 2000. Yep lets give them back the keys that caused the problem.

    The Restore Honor was not a political rally. The Comedy Central rally was co opted and was a political rally.
    How in gods name did it become a political rally? Did they campaign for one side or the other? Were their politicians that turned up to campaign?

    Unfortunately there are too many that have adopted the "I don't care" position thus we are being governed by a minority. The voter turnout shows that.

    What does that have to do with anything I said or the topic?

    It just amazes me that you had a president that started two unwinnable wars, spent billions and billions investing in a foriegn country, and that's cool.

    But god forbid a president invests money at home. That's SOCIALISM!

    Succeed or fail the stimilus might have... that topic we could debate forever... it'll take awhile to see its actual impact. But that has nothing to do with the topic.

    You are absolutely correct, "I won, you lost" promotes bipartisanship.

    It does appear that all you have is bash Bush as that seems to trump the actual results of Obama, Two years later we have more unemployment today than when he took office, month to month unemployment is higher in 2010 than 2009, GDP growth is a meagar 2%, the stimulus bailed out teacher jobs which was never the role of the stimulus, and 3 trillion has been added to the debt.

    This country cannot afford what Obama is doing. Think that his economic policy will create the govt. revenue to pay for all that massive spending? Obama isn't "investing" in the local economy he is expanding the role and size of the govt. Investing isn't what govt. does.

    A good message. I hope we do tone it down a notch or ten.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
