    I agree it could never have passed without the Democratic controlled Congress.

    It wasn't a jab--it was an observation on events less than 4 months previous. Since when did time re-set on January 20, 2009? Or for that matter, January 20, 2005, 2001, 1997, 1993...

    I don't know why some of you folks are so intent on fighting Democrats when we have such a golden opportunity to unite in disgust. This has been decades and at least 2 administrations in the making.

    Besides, I keep trying to say I'm not a Democrat, though I voted for one. I'm philosophically a Republican that can't abide by the current leadership and recent past track record, and I happen to have been boxed into an uncomfortable voting position on the national level, and I won't apologize for it. At least not yet.

    I'm all for it, let us Impeach Them All. Lets get rid of all the career politicians and start over with strict term limits! That would be a huge stimulus to our economy.

    Thanks for saving me the typing.

    I'm not sure about term limits, because that opens up another can of worms. If the election process truly worked, these bozos would be limited. The fact is Americans have become apathetic. Watch scumbags like Barney Frank and his ilk get re-elected even after their direct manipulation in the subprime crisis.

    I agree--the best term limit is an election with an engaged electorate.

    Human nature being what it is, I agree with a two-term limit for the top executive position... no need to risk having a dictator or a king for the sake of the principle...

    Maybe the time has come for the top legislative positions to be limited as well. I could be convinced.

    Apparently he stated today that if this doesn't pass, we may not survive as a nation. Quite a dramatic statement. I don't no whether to expect mass chaos or a Mexican takeover. How much ammo should we stock?

    His grasp at scare tactics just shows his pathetic desperation. I suppose it works on the same gullable people that voted for him to start with.
    Some people dream of success, while others wake up and work hard for it.

    That fence we're building on the border may end up keep us from going to Mexico and stealing Mexicans' jobs.

    I'm not keen on all this doom and gloom talk about not surviving as a nation and comparisons to the Great Depression. How the frick does that help the economy? It's not a good time to be removing the last shred of confidence consumers might have left.

    Geez he even has his blind-hope satellite offices calling around asking people to put pressure to pass the bill. I guess they didn't see my name on the Do Not Call list.
