Americans are divided on whether Democratic control of Congress is good for the country, according to a new national poll. A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday also indicates that 7 in 10 Americans believe that the Democrats' loss of their 60 seat supermajority in the Senate is a positive move for the country.

No surprise. I know I feel that way. I had been losing sleep over what has been happening to our country. It is a relief to see that Americans are waking up.

I thought I was going to live the rest of my life under a dictatorship. I never thought America would come so close.

How true. The less government does "on our behalf" (to quote Obama) the better off we are.

I just want government to leave us alone. Amereica has always been better off without government regulation of everything. That is also what our founders believed. They were afraid of government.

I find that to be true. Most decocrats who voted for him, that are friends, are tired of the whole OBAMA FIASCO. They too are very happy about what has happened in Mass. I know too many at this point that do not think it is good to have a Democratic control of Congress, or any place else for that matter, my friends have had it with him the administrations, and the State of where this Country is going. They have now wish they did not buy into all the media hype.

With all due seriousness, Americans generally like divided government. The opposition should have at least the House or the Senate. That encourages compromise.

Losing the majority is the best thing to happen to Obama. Ask Bill Clinton.

Stop with the hyberbole. Is that the standard response to oversized Government?

But since you did mention it, please tell us how our tax dollars have been used with such effieiciency in those programs.

It takes longer for the government to pave a highway then it does for an oil company to build a refinery.
