Much as I hate to say it, I can live with that as long as we have the house and the senate. Be nice to get POTUS too though...

Agree X 1000 with you there, with the gridlock in Congress they seem to have more power but was does concern me is upcoming appointments in SCOTUS

Am watching the T.V. show "The Talk" ( I think it's called ) and they have been showing pictures of U. S. presidents and telling who they think were/are "hot" ( yeah I know :-( ). Anyhow, if the number of women who cheered when they showed O's picture is any sign of how women will vote he still will have most of the U.S. women voters putting him back in office. Crazy ! Probably 90% cheered. Can't understand people.

And these last two have been an eternity! Never thought one guy could screw up so much in such a short span. O has proven it can be done.

BTW Buzz...thanks for the understatement of the year!
