    I sure would like to know what has the GOP and extremists in Congress done to improve our current state. Fine, fine they have point out flaws with the Oval office. I want to know what in the world have they done to make things better. I don't want the GOP's response to contain the words the President or Obama. Just tell us straight what is the GOP and the extremists accomplishments.

      Silly question. They have done nothing but drag their feet. Nothing but claim they have a plan....well they have a plan alright it is to make the middle class disappear completely to be replaced by peasants and serfs.

    I like how Obama wanted congress to pass his jobs bill, but the Democrat held Senate hasn't passed it. If they really want the jobs bill and just not something to complain to the media about–why hasn't the Senate passed it?
