    Yet the sheep will ignore the obvious and rush to the polls to put him back in for another four years. . .

    It almost might be better that way, like it would have been better to not bail out the automakers and their unions. Let it all burn to the ground and see what rises up from the ashes 'cause I guarantee that's what'll happen if O gets elected again. If it does, there will be far fewer bleeding hearts to contend with when we start over.

    Maybe not if the Republicans can manage to nominate a real inspirational leader of all americans instead of just another conservative status quo corporate sponsered and warfare supporting puppet. Other wise why change? Obama is a friendly face to many Americans. Many conservatives are percieved as scary nowdays to a lot of people ?? This next election is the Republicans to lose and they probably will.

    Wake up from your fantasy, Z. You talk out of bot sides of your mouth...if O is a friendly face to many Americans (which I will argue) how can the Republicans nominate a leader of ALL Americans? There has never been such a person in all history, but now it's up to the Republicans?
    LOL...

    You're correct. By ALL I didn't literally mean all Americans. I meant with better appeal to all groups in America.

    Here is the Republican's current bad situation:


    Millions of poor people who, other than poor teabaggers, are afraid of Republicans.

    Millions of minorities, immigrants, non-Christians who are mostly afraid of Republicans.

    Million of working class labor members who are mostly afraid of republicans.

    Millions of "alternative lifestyle" people who are mostly afraid of Republicans.

    Millions of academics, environmentalists, artists, and students who are afraid of Republicans.

    Millions more pro-choice, anti-war, anti-Robber Barons, anti-gun, anti-religion, anti-patriot act, anti-morality police, anti- status quo,etc. etc. are afraid of Republicans .


    That is a lot of fear !


    In my view the Republicans currently being led by the nose by the Tea Party is in trouble. That is why smart Republicans like Romney are trying to court, but not consummate the Tea Party / Republican marriage.

    If the GOP is doing so many things in the wrong direction in your view, then that's a good start. Your list is pretty much a whose who of the takers and not the contributors to the US.

    I'm not much for the "Republican/Democrat" label, but if the "republicans" you're talking about are aligning themselves with conservative constitutional values which this country was founded on, then those people SHOULD be afraid. They need to get off their asses and become a little more self sufficient instead of so damn dependent on someone else or some group or organization to take care of their woes with a free handout.

    That's a very small portion of the population.....the problem is elsewhere. These are not the Droids you are looking for.

    Maybe the tax code itself is flawed? 47% of American households owe no income tax for 2009. The number is up from 38 percent in 2007,

    Are you advocating a tax increase for 47% of americans? That's not only NOT the answer but it's also not a very Conservative position.

    Fear? Please. Maybe they should be "afraid" that Republicans will stop picking up the tab.
    Court, but not consummate? That Romney is a tease all right.
    I think the country has been consummated enough the last 3 yrs.

    In threads past, I have asked people what they think the tax rate should be and where it should kick in. Feel free.
