Romney/Ryan 2012 - Put a couple of idiots in charge.

Fixed your Sig for you.

Oh and btw... having a 3 party (and in some ways 4 party) system in Canada seems to work perfectly fine up here.

For starters, he never had a super-majority, so it's almost impossible to pass anything. Especially with these blue-dogs pretending to be Democrats.

Second of all he was fixing your mess. Bush handed him a economy in deficit of a whopping $1.4 Trillion dollars, that was years in the making. However, you guys now blame him for not fixing your mess fast enough.

How delusional and brainwashed can a person be? To ignore the ramifications of handing someone years of projected deficits, then actually blaming them for not fixing your problem fast enough. Let alone having any time to fix anything else.

Your TEAnutters came in and promised the world. However, all they have done is filibustered a good 200+ times and killed off that "evil" EPA.

Democrats are fundamentally the same, their healthcare bill is basically a lobbyist giveaway to Big Pharma.

Personally, every time a republican politician votes poorly, the first thing I hear from a repubclian is that "Government "is to blame. Never ever the actual voting record of the politician they elected to represent them.

Voting records are public record and not negotiable. For example, Ryan voted for every single Budget-Busting policy of Bush. To claim he is the same as someone who voted against these very policies is incorrect.

People fail to realize that we have 3 branches of government here. The president is not some CEO, General, or Prime Minister that gets to call the shots. In fact, as per the Constitution, congress is responsible for the majority of policies.

There is a reason after all the the rest of the developed world uses the modern Parliamentarian system instead. Stalemates and finger pointing like we conveniently have under our system is simply not possible. The buck stops with the prime minster and his cabinet; who are also actual elected senators.

Really? Because someone says a negative about Republicans they automatically support Democrats? Wrong...some of us, unfortunately far too few can see that the Donkey and Elephant may be different animals but they produce the exact same manure. garyjohnson2012.com

"Wrong...some of us, unfortunately far too few can see that the Donkey and Elephant may be different animals but they produce the exact same manure."

Man! Ain't that the truth?!!

Doesn't matter what you are either, meaning Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Stupid, Intelligent, etc....................

all though i don't believe in big government but the idea of the government is not to far off from hiring a manager for your business how ever since money is involved no politician wants to do anything watch a frontline documentary on obama care while he may have meant well only the drug companies and doctors had any input in japan there is a cap on medical cost and japan has better medical tech in Germany doctors are taken care of yet they have a salary cap recently a documentary came out on the drugs companies they have a 90% profit margin spend only 10% on research recently my county is spending several million dollars running a fiber optic cable up the mnt how ever if some one were to read articles on the broad band companies all three of the big ones dropped fiber optic cable like a hot potato in fact frontier went so far as to break a contract with a city and up there installation cost 500% additional we the taxpayers are paying twice once for the line to be run up the highway then to have it run into the home owners house and every article i have read even government websites make no mention as to how one can access dark fiber as to big business a economics professes stated in a lecture that our recent economic melt down is a crises of capitalism which has its roots in the 70s i am remember in the 80s when the banks collapsed and when wall the government tried to force wall street to play by the rules if the government had stop wall street perhaps Bernie madoffe would not be in jail i think over all we as john Q public cant easily get ride of the government if you cant fire some one for doing a bad job were is the incentive to do better

Why they hate the governments help when it comes to say "basic service" is simple because they are either the majority share holders and mouth piece of say ISP or company. Not because they want this country to be #1 again.

We don't trust the government because it's run by a bunch of narcissists that accept bribes from lobbyists to create the rules. When you want the government to run things, you're just saying you want the big bussiness lobbyists to run things.

In part I agree with you. Thats why we need our politicians to run like the politicians in Japan where it is "the good for our people comes first"

But this still doesn't change the fact that a vote for a third party is the same as voting for the candidate you want least to win. It is just math at work.

You're right on that one. Ralph Nadar, GW Bush's most effective ally.

Not to mention those solid Republican majorities in Congress from 2009 to 2011.

There never was a solid Dem majority in the Senate. You need 60 votes in the Senate to get anything done. The most the Dems ever had in the Senate was 58, plus two independents that would caucus with them. That gave each of the conservative independent Lieberman, and the Blue Dog Dems, veto power. Hardly "solid" to get anything done. Add that only lasted for about 70 days, between when Franken finally got seated to when Kennedy died. Add to that Mitch's stated goal of blocking everything, and you can't put sole blame on the Dems for not getting things done.

Every $1 in income tax .6 cents on the dollar go to welfare (.9 depending if you count TARP). The lions share of every income tax dollar goes to defense and social security for seniors. Republicans love to scream if they could cut programs to help the poor it would save like 99% of our budget. Far from it. It's just hype to keep the sheep angry and stomping their feet.

My friend you hit the nail in the head. Those were some odd times for congress. Also another reason why the Democratic majority allow Ex President Bush to do anything in his power was because they were scared, since the 9/11 families and americans didn't listen to reason instead just went ahead with war plans . Mind you I was in favor of going to Afghanistan but not in favor or Iraq.
