Thats the amount of time that Dems had. Two and a half months, to role out every piece of legislation, get through, and call it a day. Get the changes we wanted. A vote in the House. check. A vote in the Senate. Check. President sign. Check. Next.

The legislation was ready to go. Its sitting there on the table. Why no vote? Could it possibly be that all of a sudden, all that corporate money they took needed some favors?

2008 was a historical sweep. A mandate. And all we got was forced corporatism in healthcare.

What is it going to take for people to wake up and take their governemnt back?

Here's another one...

"That will be a mess in my neighborhood, and probably yours too. We can take care of Obama's foreign policy later ...."

Putting the financial well being of your neighborhood over innocent lives being destroyed overseas. Murder, in the name of keep in your neighborhood not messy.

This country is fucked. Killing is the summit of greed. Its the most immoral thing one can do.

And another

"I support Pres Obamas drone strike reductions because he is on the way to zero."

Even though strikes overall are up, and the number of countries bombed has increased, it doesnt matter. People MUST believe in either Dems or Reps, because the chance it may be a big lie is just too much to bear...

This is the type of ignorance that is destroying the country

"Anwar Al Awlaki was a sworn enemy of America. He was tried in the court of public opinion, I though he was tried in military court in absentia, Certainly I believe he was guilty, so his death in our war on terror (which I am against) was expected by both sides. No?

We tried to capture him but he didn't cooperate. He knew we were gonna drone bomb him. He used his young adult son as a human shield I don't think we knew that Al Awlaki was using his son as a human shield.

And didn't Al Awlaki train his son to be a militant enemy of America? Who thought we wouldn't kill our enemies.

I don't quite understand you're objection. Is it the lack of trial? Is it his American citizenship? I mean we kill our enemies (whatever nationality) without trial all the time for decades.

Are you against killing our enemies, and the war on terror?"............

100-1 odds this guy voted for Bush.

It's an all in one package; that same guy can now vote for Obama. Because the Dems are great at Muslim killing, too.
