Best wishes, I hope he gets well, he served this country directing the CIA and he's the last republican I voted for. If I had it to do over again I would.

Acccording to the NRA's philosophy, we need to have everyone driving drunk in order to level the playing field.

What does the right want to do? Extend tax cuts and have the middle class pay to balance the deficit? They killed the middle class under Bush. I do agree that Obama has to come forward with some major spending cuts, but only after the repubs agree to end the Bush era tax cuts for those making over $250k a year. That is what Obama ran on and what the PEOPLE elected him to do.
As for ObamaCare, your party did NOTHING to reform healthcare in eight years under Dubya. Repubs preached we needed HC reform and they did what Bush did throughout his eight year presidency. NOTHING. Well, you did oversee the biggest intelligence failure in US history (9-11) and invade Iraq (where are those weapons of mass destruction?) and kill a bunch of our troops while burying the US in debt.
As for you saying Obama has done nothing, I don't think Bin Laden thought he did NOTHING when he saw the SEALS kicking down his door.

You said the fey word, STABILITY. Pittsburgh has had the same defensive coordinator (Dick LeBeau) since 1995. Cleveland hasn't gone three years without changing water boys. The ONLY way the CLOWNS will ever win is to bring in a coaching staff and leave them alone for three years before evaluating them. Chuck Noll, Bill Walsh and a lot of great franchises had their coaches struggle in the early going, but they stuck with them.

Wow! After what looks to be another 5-11 season, The SuperBowlless CHOKEland Clowns look to be rebuilding AGAIN. New owner, new GM, new Head Coach, new Offensive Coordinator, new Special Teams Coach and yes, a new quarterback!
Next year the motto will remain the same as always, "GET 'em NEXT YEAR!!"

The Tea Baggers aren't that far off base, their problem is they have goals (small government and less taxes) with NO PLAN to get there. I've heard Palin talk about smaller government and less taxes as the face of the Tea Party for the past four years. Not once have I heard her mention what to cut, how much to cut and how long to cut it.
Between the Tea Party, Rush Limbaugh and FIXED NOISE NETWORK, a party I once respected and agreed with in many of their conservative principles has turned into a visionless, hate and fear based party that has no clear leadership, panders to shrinking base. (See: George W. Bush, Karl Rove, Cheney Romney and Palin.) The repubs keep losing elections and blaming the opponent, it's time to look internally!! Obama didn't alienate the Latino voters (largest and still fastest growing minority) from the republicans. There has to be more to the message than LOWER TAXES.

The NRA would like them to be IN the schools.

Dodd-Frank had NOTHING to do with the US going into the Great Recession. It didn't pass until 2010.
Republican Phil Gramm was chairman of Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs between '99 -02. During that time he decided to fix what wasn't broken and came up with the BRILLIANT idea to deregulate the banking laws. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act in 1999, which removed Depression-era laws separating banking, insurance and brokerage activities (essentially repealling the Glass- Steagall Act).
During eight years of Republican rule no reform was adopted regarding Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, NONE! So, you can blame Barney Frank all you want, and it IS fairl to argue he tried to protect Fannie and Fredie from oversight and regulation, but he didn't have the power to do it by himself.

They should make a first offense DUI a mandatory 11 months in jail with counseling and a 5 year license suspension. A 2nd offense a minimum 3 years in jail and permanenly revoke the person's license. If caught driving after that a minimum 15 year sentence. Over 200 innocent children are killed annually by drunk drivers annually, the equivalent of having the number of kids killed in the Newtown, Conn. tradgedy happen every 5 weeks.
