    I give them a B plus. For the amount of time that they've had, I think that they have done very well, they need more time and let us not forget, we the people as a whole must help in any way that we can also. We need to all work together. No matter what every day we wake up, there will be a challenge in our lives.

    Nancy Pelosi has no idea what right for America. She should get on her broom stick and go set fire to a scarecrow. Reed is a joke. No one with at least one brain cell takes him seriously.

    Both the Congress and the Senate deserve an F. This is why we need term limits! Neither party is truly representing the people. Instead, they are assuring their own political futures and lining their pockets. Most every thing that has been done in the past 100 Days have not been read or inspected but pushed through as an emergency. The American people will pay dearly not only in taxes but lost freedom.

    How Peolose reaches to Republicans? By spneding my money flying from DC to CA. requesting flights from USAF?
    Lets get real here. If the Republicans screwed up, the Democrats are doing the same. Pelosi will regret what she doing. Democrats crtizise the repub. Do you people have a mirror at home? or you need a bailout to buy one..

    One of the worst we have had. A rubber stamp for Obama. What is there to say? What have they done? If you don;t attend class; you don't do your assignments; you don't care about much of anything except being re-elected to a doing nothing job that pays high no matter what you do. You know no one is going to call you into account. GRADE F

    I am a registered Dem, but these 2 cannot be called leaders. Sorry. How did they get into these positions?

    Well, I guess they are going to have their way on everything finally and then we'll truly know once and for all if the liberal way is better. They won't be able to blame anyone else for the mess they are creating today that we will all pay for next year, and the next year and so on.... The country I love is gone. I don't recognize it anymore....Is is to late to petition for States rights and just have a national govt. for security? And how do we go about getting term limits for Senators on a ballot?Or do the Senators decide that too, like they do their own pay raises?! Ha! Ha! Ha! (weeping now)

    Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Frank, and the others in the democratic majority now, and also who have been a democratic majority for the last 3-4 years during the Bush years are idiots to the core. And I'm not even republican. Bush was also a washington elitist who thought our tax money was his to keep and dole out to all of his friends. It's time to take our country back from these idiots in washington

    It is interesting, being an independant. I think both sides have problems. It would be nice to see them work for the public interest, instead of their individual political futures. That was the main problem with the GOP in power, W and cronies, only thought of themselves and their buddies. They are still rich and we are paying. It will be years before I vote for any GOP candidate again. The Dems could end up in the same mess, I hope not. Obama, is amazing, Congress in general has work to do.

    Two term limits for Congress and no sweetheart retirement package either. Pelosi and Reid are a millstone around the dems neck, the party needs to get rid of those two ASAP!

    Reid and Pelosi get C's for now, but only because they have yet to really screw things up. Reid seems clueless and Pelosi doesn't know when to shut up. When the witch-hunt on the torture issue gets moving, they could prove to be more of a liability.

    How did Peolose get majority whip? No there are others that I would rather see. And if that crap about flying home is true then take away the chair position.

    All in favor of placing some other Dem other than Peolose in that position.
