Washington (CNN) - There's more evidence that American voters are in a mood for change in this midterm election year. CNN Radio's Dick Uliano chats with CNN's Political Editor Mark Preston about a veteran Senate Republican who's facing an uphill climb for re-election and a veteran House Democrat who's chosen to step aside.

After the failed policies of the Bush/Cheney Administration and the ongoing evidence that the GOP don't give a dam about anything othet than making the rich richer,while they obstruct any legislation that benefits the Average Americans. Capitalism will bring our Country down, vote these GOP CLOWNS out.

    I wish we could vote today. Obama and his followers are destroying this country. We should vote them out of the office.

    I hope folks will not blindly throw out the babies with the bathwater! look at which party is working to fix the mess the republicans made and which party is trying to stop them and return us to an even deeper mess and then vote accordingly. Obama and the Democrats are making real progress toward restoring our economy, and he's already restored America's image with the rest of the world. Don't take away the people who are working FOR the American people! take away the big-business stooges.

    "Throw the rascals out" is a shortsighted and self-defeating mentality. We have learned that if something is going wrong, you find someone to blame and fire them. Republican leaders are milking this sentiment for all its worth, because Democrats are in power. They are being depicted by Republicans as the rascals that should be thrown out. Republicans merely want to return to power. They have no interest in solving the problems that we are concerned about.

    It is better to have a bad Democrat in office than a good Republican. In this partisan environment, all Democrats vote together and all Republicans vote together. The Republican leadership is dishonest and malicious. They are motivated NOT to solve any problems (they call that the "market solution"). The smart Republican you elect will vote just like his leaders tell him to or he will be accused of being a Liberal-Socialist and drummed out of the party.

    The Democratic leadership is mediocre at best, but Obama is pushing them to actually solve some of America's problems like immigration, global warming, wages, economic stability, job benefits, education, afford-ability of colleges, etc. Mediocre leadership is better than malicious leadership.

    My hope is that we don't just go with change for the sake of change and end up worse off than we are. My PRAYER is that honorable candidates who wish to serve "We The People" (and I don't mean the Tea Baggers agenda) and our interests BEFORE serving those of Big Business.
    My fear is that ALL politicians are still wolves dressed in Congrespeople's clothing, waiting to rip us off for the further benefit of Big Business.

    Congress told us that the bailouts would save Main Street, they lied! Corporate America, AIG and Wall Street are getting Billions in Bonuses and we the taxpayer is left to pay for these bonuses with our pink slips!

    Vote Congress out, “you are fired” if they are in. Vote them out this fall no matter what party they belong to, and in the next election and every election going forward until they become the servants of the people once more.

    This November tell Congress "You Are Fired!"

    It looks like more and more people are seeing the Republican party for what they are and don't want them in office anymore! Thank goodness! We need more politicians who are the Average Americans side, not big business and corporations.
