  2. Wake up people

    Do the rethugs think the American public is stupid? We have watched them fight the President on every decision he tried for the past 3 years and now that it is election time, they are willing to work with him. Who do they think they are fooling?

    OBAMA 2012!

  4. Limbaugh is a liberal

    The republican plan for 'creating jobs' has not changed for the past three decades: give more money to the rich and wait for a miracle. Give more money to the rich and wait for a miracle. Give more money to the rich and wait for a miracle.
    Result? Rich have gotten richer, and kept laying off workers anyway.

    Don't worry. We have seen this movie before. The radical RINOs will find something and force feed it to the bill si that it would turn a bipartisan compromise into an ideological grand stand. Remember Speaker-Elect Boehner in December 2010 putting us on notice that compromise is not something that is his playbook? Hasn't he lived up to that playbook?
