How bad are we gonna lose?
Advertisements [?]
Man I can't even recognize this party. It's like money has completely taken over. The current chair does not know how to do the job. I don't understand why he even took it on... he exudes none of the energy Dean did. "We're gonna beat the Republicans!" -- way to play into the Republicon's hands, dude.

But really now, what happened? Since when does money win elections? I think the real problem is that Obama has too much influence over the party at this point. He's the party leader? How the hell does a man govern and be party leader at the same time? Answer: they don't. You've got to choose one or the other, because the responsibilities are completely different.

So you're using the powers of the presidency wisely, mostly as they should be used. Good example, keep it up. But Barack we elected you to be president -- that is, be commander in chief. We did not elect you to lead the Congress. In fact, we very much expect you to do EVERYTHING Pelosi tells you to. In fact, we're quite disappointed that you've argued with her as much as you have. Be the executive and leave the legislating to others, you are not a senator anymore.

I'm really disappointed at the failure of the housing assistance program. Barack left Geithner to do it and Geithner has been way too good to his rich buddies. The Bush tax cuts are going to expire? Great. Just great. What about the REST of the 2 trillion deficit? Where is THAT money going to come from? Hopefully, Tim, from you own pocket. And Barack's.
