I remember many years ago democrats held solid positions. They were finally voted out, slowly. Then the republicans had the solid positions and guess what happened? You got it, bingo they screwed up, why? Because like the dems they held solid positions. Now, what you are saying is the republicans need to be in the majority again?

What made you think Obama was going to bring about any real change?

Yep. The Republicans had a solid majority going into GWB's first term. Then 9/11 happened and everything changed.

Let me ask you... what changes were you looking forward to, compared to the Bush era?

Sadly, Obozo did bring real change - change that has been destroying America. Our worse enemy could not have done a better job than this radical scumbag clown.

Frustration brings the real us out, doesn't it? So, you say that America has been in worse situation since Jan 2009 than it has ever been in?

Probably enough time for another democrat to take the White House after the republicans start to turn the tide and take all the credit for it.

When Obama took office we were losing 700,000 jobs per month. Now we are seeing positive jobs gains each month. Why do Republicans want to change that trend?

When was the last time a Republican president "turned the tides"?

I can see it now, after 3 years repubs will still be blaming Obama for the mess that they have gotten the country into instead of admitting that they have no clue what they are doing.
