    Political enemies exist, like it or not. We call it gridlock. We call it politics as usual. What's your problem for naming it? You think it isn't a battle? It is a game of war with it's own set of rules. There are winners, and losers. Some play for keeps, others play for fun and loose. You gonna try and say the Right hasn't declared Obama an enemy? How about Clinton a decade ago? Sorry, it's time for the moderates of this country to wake up to the fact that they have enemies, and those enemies are stomping their values into the mud every day.

Just one day after Congress passed the $787 billion stimulus package, the ill-fated gesture was intended to be an act of post-partisan solidarity."

And yes, these two people are dedicated viewers of Glenn Beck.
    Is the term "intelligent and educated Glenn Beck viewer" an oxymoron?

    Both. In the eyes of extremists, anyone in the middle is guilty of being a muddy thinker, a member of the "sheeple", and possibly even a "fellow traveler" deserving no respect. Fortunately for all of us, a two party system puts moderates in the driver's seat, able to determine the outcome of any election. Unfortunately, it also makes liars of politicians who say one thing to their base to get nominated and something completely different to get elected.

    The people said they wanted change on specific issues in the last election, the Repubs seem hell bent on twisting everything because November is all they are concerned with...................
    Now we have the party of "The war is lost", "Our soldiers are killing women and children in the dead of night", Barney Fwank and Chris Dodd (2 of the main reasons for the mortgage problems, "Cold Cash" William Jefferson, Chicago thugs and the ever popular "Yes we can" zombie chant. Some hope and change.

    I've always been confused by the declaration that repubs are the party of no. If the repubs were in charge and putting all kinds of things you completely disagree with in place would you hope that your congressman would just vote with the majority because you obviously wouldn't want to be the party of no right? Or would you want someone to stand up for what they believe and vote accordingly.

    You mean like those Senators and Congressmen voting for health care reform?

    Legislation is written through compromise, often between people who agree on the specific wording for completely different reasons.
