    I HOPE DEMOCRATS WIN CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE!!

    Nothing will hurt the democratic party more than themselves and their flawed iniatives. 4-8 years of Nanny-economics (socialism) and the American people will revolt against high taxes, sour stock market, high unemployment (why work when it's all free), etc.

    Go ahead Democrats – pursue your path to socialism, cripple our economy, and effectively destroy your own party.

    Hopefully the Democrats will continue to make gains in 2008. It is not proper to unfairly judge Democrats in Congress right now because everything good that they propose and try to do gets vetoed. Give the Democrats in Congress a chance with a Democrat President and then you will see HUGE RESULTS. Thanks!

    To all you right wingers complaining about Dems pushing through a bill to condemn the Armenian genocide:

    You people are truly disgusting!!!

    Cenn from CA,

    YOU ARE SO RIGHT!

    WHILE CONDEMING THE GENOCIDE OF ARMENIANS, WE SHOULD BE STOPPING THE GENOCIDE IN IRAQ! WAIT WE DID THAT BY INVADINIG.

    MAYBE WE COULD STOP THE GENOCIDE IN SUDAN?

    GET REAL! THE GENOCIDE RESOLUTION IS TO TAKE YOUR MIND OFF THE FACT THAT CONGRESS ISN'T GOING TO EVER STOP BUSH FROM SENDING TROOPS TO IRAQ. THEY DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT THE ARMENIANS OR THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT BEFORE THIS!!!

    I do believe the Republicans will win back the House because the Dems have already shown the public that they don't support the troops, they align themselves with the vile anti-American moveOn,org. , they politicize everything, they waste time holding hearings and trying to undermine President Bush and they do not plan on cutting earmark spending, but actually increasing taxes on working people!

    Hmmm.... now what could have happened in 2001 to cause such a drastic dip in the US Dollar? Could it be that terrorists attacked our country in a cowardly attempt to derail our economy and our spirit?

    They failed! And so will the Dems attempt to do the same thing in their mission for political gain. How dispickable, to attempt to sabotage our foreign affairs and create more risk for those in harm's way just to make the other team look bad!

    US Unemployment – 5%, Europe – 9%
    US Price of gasoline – $3/gallon, Europe – $12/gallon
    US Effective tax rate – 15%, European Effective Tax Rate – 35%

    But hey – cry about the dollar conversion into Euro's ... which improve our exports, drive US Tourism, and helps OUR economy!

    With logic like yours – no wonder the leading candidate in the Presidential race espouses European Socialism and the her flock of partisans bleat with praise.

    I believe that the republicans will take back the house, senate and to retain the White House in 2008.
    We should say no to the S-CHIP and say yes to tax cuts, immigration reform, repealing the death tax act and to save social security.
    I believe that tax cuts on Bill Clinton's 1993 tax hikes on Social Security and repealing the death tax will benefit us all, not the Republicans.
    So therefore we need to bring back the GOP led Congress, put Nancy Pelosi and her Democrats back to the minority and bring in John Boehner as the next house speaker. Then this country can get back on track in the right direction.
    A conservative house, senate and White House is all we need to get this country back in the right direction. Not Democrats, liberals and Hillary Clinton.
    Hillary Clinton must go, put a republican/conservative president to lead this country forward.
