    The President kicked butt.

    All those kids from Colorado (critical swing state) will be able to visit the Washington monument. God bless!

    Republicans look OK. Obama comes out OK. The democrats look just plain stupid. Lining up to the mic with their moronic scare tactics and claims that republicans are really just interested in killing women and eating babies. What a complete and total group of clowns. It is no wonder Pelosi got her ass handed to her in the house. Of course...if the democrat controlled house, senate and White House had actually done their job WHEN it was their job this whole thing would have never come up. The whole lot of them...the only thing missing is the little clown car they ride around in.

    Not sure who won. But I do think that the debate regarding federal spending may have changed for at least the next two years. We started with no budget for 2011, keeping spending in place. By the end of the debate neither side takes the position that spending can stay the same.

    This will have a profound impact on the 2012 that the president submitted recently which called for additional spending for "investments".

    I think you will find a large number of democrats have been turned off by the large and continuing budget deficits. Think about this for a second. The federal debt is about 14,5 trillion. At a normalized interest rate of 5% for 10 year treasuries that means that we spend forever 700 billion a year largely to foreign governments. The think about universal health care. That woudl cost something like a trillion over 10 years and everyone says we can't afford it. Yet this amount to about 1 and 1/2 years interest payments because we did not have the political courage to balance what we felt we should spend as a nation and the revenues needed to pay for it.

    I agree. Republican house and Obama come out looking good. Though dangerously close for the former.

    I can say it seems the unborn have definitely lost.

    You know.

    We're talking about the running of the country.

    The thing we send politicians like these to our respective capitals to do, their mother ****ing jobs.

    Im not interested in anyone winning anything, simply doing what they were suppose to be doing all along.

    The Kenyan Tyrant makes me think of Conan the Barbarian. It's a silly term.
