    There's another factor - the Bush admin held daily press briefings on the wars and kept the troops and the wars in the press, the admin talked about the war all the time. Since President Obama was elected, not so much.

    Republicans first obstruct efforts to strengthen the economy. Then they exploit the economy's weakness for political gains, This obstruct and exploit strategy is their best chance to win in November.

    When was the last time dems passed a budget in the senate? The great uniter cant even get his own party on board. Dems controlled the house and senate for 4 years, and presented every legislation Bush had to act on for 2 of his last 4 years. The whiny bitching about how they couldnt govern with control of the house and senate AND White House is BEYOND pathetic. Its always someone elses fault. You should be horribly embarassed.
