R. fails to realize that Obama has outspent all other modern presidents combined.
We need to reduce the size and scope of government, reduce spending and reduce taxes.
Your arguments don't make much sense Finn.
I'm not surprised max
The idea that politics shouldn't be political is laughable. Politics is all about political narrative and the side that constructs the best narrative always wins. This was true about Obama's victory with Hope and Change and it was true about the Tea Party outsider revolution of common people. It's all politics.
I love how you are able to so easily turn on a dime. Right now you are all about "a plague on both their houses; it's all the same politics," and several posts previously you are ranting about the damage the insane and sinister Tea party will do. Either you take this stuff seriously or you don't , and if you're now trying to say both sides are the same sets of Bozos on the Bus, why do you always seem to favor the ones with the Blue wigs, and despise the ones wearing Red?
We can argue about the meanings of 2008 and 2010, but one thing is very clear. The American people are fickle. Convincing Obama victory with big majorities in both houses of Congress one election, and then Tea Party revolt with big changes in Congress the next. If the Republicans could put together three or four victories it would mean something. Right now it appears the American people are just floundering about wildly for the new thing each time.
It appears that way to you because you want to believe they are. You want to believe that the 2010 elections were simply a turn in wind direction based on the fickle feckless nature of the American people.
You point out that Obama's approval ratings are dropping. So is the Tea Party's approval rating. The approval rating of "Republicans in Congress" is lower than any other group of elected officials. But it doesn't matter-- none of this predicts electoral success.
Obama is not going to run against the Tea Party or the "Republicans in Congress. He is going to be running against someone who has deliberately avoided any role in the "Debt Crisis" debate.
A sitting president's approval rating cannot, alone, predict the chances of his re-elections, but if it remains at or below it's current level in 09/12, Barry is in a heap of trouble.
And here's something that has been a pretty reliable predictor of whether or not a President is re-elected - the unemployment rate. How low do you think it must be by election time next year for it not to negatively impact Obama?
This is politics. You seem to confuse it with religion.
That's rich coming from you.

I never before realized what I free radical you might be Fido.
The American Constitution is a failure?!
I have an unsubstantiated sense that you get pummeled by both the Left and the Right. This could be a sign of the accuity of your perspective, but I can't dimiss this nagging sense that you constantly try to play to the Lefties.
All Iconoclasts are not iconoclastic.
"Crazy-insane" are mild adjectives for these idiots who fails to understand the damage they are causing most people on this planet.
As a matter of fact, you're snarky and dismissed; on Ignore.
You're also a troll. A big waste of time!
Why should we throw them out when they are doing exactly what we want them to?
What happen is the sane people are sadly less likely to vote until the highly motivate insane people managed as a result to get insane people who share their viewpoints into office.
Then the sane people waked up and vote in the next election to removed them.
sadly assume that nothing too bad will occur it they missed an off year election.
