    That in my opinion is their problem. Sometimes I really wonder if they know how to play the political game. It does seem to me at times the Republicans would rather have an ideological candidate win in their primaries only to lose the general. That may well happen here in Georgia, like a Broun vs. Nunn race. A race Broun can't win.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I don't have to believe. You can google it. Hear it with your ears.

    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.

    The reason you won't cite it is because it doesn't exist.

    Speaking as a Dem, we need to get our donkey heads out of our butts at the state level, where Repubs tore us a new one in 2010. And still no Repubs will credit Michael Steele. Governors, state legislatures, the House, the Senate--Repubs have a better ground game while IMV Dems have better candidates.

    I don't see any real threat of Republicans in the House to the point of losing the majority but I do see Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham in the Senate loosing their seats because there is a group of Conservatives, Libertarians and Independents that are not going to vote for these yahoos that continue to compromise our principles and will challenge them in the upcoming primaries. Too bad McCain won't be among those being challenged this year. We still have to put with that yahoo for another 2 years. And a good number of Democrat senators in the red states are toast. Between Obamacare and supporting legislation that violates 2nd Amendment rights, and unwilling to support a balanced budget, these bozos don't stand a chance.
    Only about 80 of the Republican congress folk live in safe conservative districts. There is a lot for the GOP to lose. At this point, the best they can hope for is to come out simply saving face.

    People don't like Congress but they usually like their own Congressperson. You don't think Repubs are doing this against the wishes of their constituents? We shall see.
