    Is this the Repubs version of bipartisanship?

    I must say whenever I heard the word intelligence in relation to the previous President I chuckled a littlle inside.

    Now a President who actually is intelligent has chosen a leader he believes in. I can't wait to see how it goes.

    Hope no more of ' we knew but did nothing' like the 1990's resulting in 9/11. Lack of confidence in American intelligence at the time was mind boggling.

    We have hit a all time low in this great country when one of our Reps has to apologise to Rush Limbaugh.

    We do wanna say one last thing that our tax cuts are better than the GOP's...is bigger and faster, how you like that? So, hopefully in a couple weeks we could send a draft to Congress...

    Have a good evening guys!

    What? No repug nay-sayers? I mean, they did so well the last eight years and all.......Too bad they can't be more agreeable to economic changes. They continue to make me sick. Read some blogs on here from them such as "SPEND-SPEND-SPEND" and apologies to rush limbaugh,etc. No wonder the Dems won so big in November!! The gop says they have a "better idea"- my question is: So why didn't they come up with it when they were in power?
    Send more packin in 2010!!!!

    Man up Gingrey. Limbaugh is a blowhard. Hannity is simply vacuous. Their pay goes up in proportion to the noise they make. Yours doesn't. Do your job. They are ENTERTAINERS. You aren't. Don't concern yourself with them. Now If we can get someone on the Democratic side to basically call out Pelosi and Ried and send them packing, we might get some progress in this country.
