    The blind Democrats, will never, ever, see the truth. They refuse to look at the truth.

      Explain to me and the rest of us how has the Congressional Republicans no votes helped to employee people. How as the filibusters helped open a new small business? It sound like you and other Republicans are blind to the truth that Congressional Republicans obstructionist agenda has held our recovery back.

        Explain how Reid filing cloture on every bill is not obstruction. Explain how the dozens of bills the House passed that haven't even been addressed in Senate is not obstruction.

      Uh, the "truth" is that when the President gets to campaign against the Republican nominee, not just "not Obama"; whether it's Newt or Willard or Dr. Paul, his numbers will "slide" toward "Landslide", as in 2nd term lololol

    I do not believe in poll numbers since you can make dirt better than sliced bread depending on how you phrase the questions. I have got to say that is still much better than Congressional Republican's poll numbers...I believe are in the single digits area.

      Using your words, MTATL, otherwise this (I) will be labled racist, what you are saying is that by phrasing the questions correctly, these polls made dirt (Obama) look better than sliced bread (Congressional Republican) in terms of their polling numbers? But you don't believe that because you don't believe in poll numbers, though you have no problem pointing them out.

      Did I understand correctly?

    Actually, you'd do better to read a large poll-of-polls like Realclearpolitics.com. They take daily averages mof ABC, CBS, Gox, Reuters, NYTimes, Quinnipiac, Rassmussen, Tine, AP, Gallup, - and on and on. Gives you a far better look at national polls.

    Lots of passion on both sides of the discussion. The truth of the matter is BOTH parties have let us down because they are playing party first. The answer lies in good people in BOTH parties who want to make America first. Case in point: McConnell's goal is to make Obama a one term President while the goal should have been to do what is best for this country. But wait, there's more! How many GOP House bills have been sent to Harry Reid that never had the opportunity for an up or down vote? Keep blaming one side of the other but, BOTH sides have let us down!

    Steveo; I have to say I hate when after all else fails; all else has been addressed or pointed out, you and others like C-Lo on this blog fall back on 'both sides have let us down'! I want to ask you...did both parties let us down when BUSH was in office, aking all of his THOUGHTLESS decisions that ultimately hurt AMERICA? If they did, did you all verbalize it to THIS degree? NO! Y'all went along with him, as you did CLINTON and all of the rest of them! 'LETS PUT OUR DIFFERENCES ASIDE AND STICK TOGETHER'!

      Both parties have failed because both parties are more interested in party first politics. Otherwise explain why they can't work together for the betterment of this country! Don't forget Pelosi and Reid ran Bush hard as well. Trust me, I am all for working together! I don't care what party comes up with workable solutions. Let's get this country healed!

We will all do for you what the DEVIL never did for ya,...LEAVE YOU! Leave you to your angry, envious, supremacist, self-righteous, racist, biggoted self! YOU HAVE OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHY! PIT-TEE-FULL!

    These Republicants (yes I said Republicants) because everything they have done since they took control of congress is NO, they shoud drop the "can". They have made it so difficult for this President to do his job to make this country better because they have opposed him just so they can try to get him out of office. That has been their goal since they took control of congress. They act like children and following the interest of their political party line instead of looking out for the best interest of the country. The Republicants are also responisble for this countries problems. I feel the President has done the best he could with the obstruction that he is faced. Get he Republicants OUT of congress!
