    about not voting for the Democrats to teach them a lesson is about as worthy as cutting off your nose to spite your face.  

    The only difference is, these people who doesn't return to office will find other work and make more money.  And those of you sitting the election out and let Republicans win will lose even more.  

    If you think the Bush years were bad, look to see what happens when the Republicans take over.

    You may not appreciate the progress the Obama administration has done for the good of this county and you may not be patient enough to give them his whole 4 year first term to get much of what he wants to do for you, but just wait until it gets taken away. Then you'll wish you hadn't been so disgruntled.

    I wonder sometimes if most of the people writing their outrage are not really Democrats, but Republicans trying to discourage you people from supporting the only progressive president you'll have for a while.

      ...can't have my way, so I'll take my ball and go home.  That's all good and fine for you, but there are a lot of people who will be affected by your temper tantrum.

      DARTH SPECTER: I am altering the deal! Pray I don't alter it any further!
      LANDO REID: This deal keeps getting worse all the time!

      on this site is minuscule, believe me most will VOTE, you need to worry about who got us over the finish line in 2008.  All those new voters, independents, etc.  They are not excited now and don't like EITHER party.  And when you have 10% unemployment and close to 20% overall what do you expect?  Folks expected more from the Democrats and definitely expected them to perform on fixing this economy better than what they have seen.  Lastly to run on vote for the lesser of two evils does not make one want to get up off their couch and vote for you.  Sorry, it just doesn't.  Put this on lack of communication from the White House and Democrats.  For all they want folks to cheer about, the public just are not feelin' them and that is the major problem.
