Repubs are far from perfect. They got thrown out in 2006 - and rightfully so - for corruption, uncontrolled spending and $200B+ deficits. Pelosi rode in on "drain the swamp" and "paygo", and proceeded to give us more corruption and $T+ deficits. Not surprisingly, her dems were then thrown out in droves. Repubs may or may not have learned the lesson from their defeat. Dems clearly have not...

And those mainstream people who do see problems with the system and want somebody to spearhead reform, they look at Obama and realize he's never going to be the one to do it because he's on the banks and the major money movers payroll. And then you have the Obama supporters themselves who turn mainstream people away. One look at MSNBC and you realize just how out of touch and even warped his propagandists are.

Off to the gulag with all of them!

Anyone else have a reason why obama is tanking here?

Obama wants to tax the rich and it's class warfare.

Cain wants to tax workers at the bottom and it's NOT class warfare???

The Left thinks Americans are better than Americans really are, but Americans really consider NIMBY, exclusionary zoning, taxing the poor, and social injustice good and desirable things.

Americans fear living among others whom they consider to be inferior and dangerous, and are not hesitant to use the powers of government to separate the classes.

The Left is so woefully misguided. If only they knew the ugly truth.

You talking about the 50% that don't pay ANY taxes but call for those of us who do to pay more?

No, not a cocker spaniel. I say we go with a wooden cigar store indian. He would never lie, never promote job-destroying regulation, never need vacations, and never betray a pure absence of the faintest hint of how business or the economy works. In other words, he would make a far better president than what we have now.

No doubt about it. Latest right direction / wrong direction poll is 14% / 81%. And no, that's not a Rasmussen poll...
