    His arrogance will add to his downfall. This is the most unpresidential thing I have seen him do. He does not deserve the office..

    I don't mind his being president. I did not vote for him. But I recognize him as my American president. I agree with him that because of his position he is/will be held responsible. I just can't imagine why there is such a rush to push this type of reform through and force it upon us. As American citizens, our government officials are tenants of our nation. All their powers real and elastic are derived from the people...why would any American president wish American people (btw, even given that a Republican Admins. 'created' this mess) the dialogue that is being seen in America is from its citizenry. This is the real dialogue that the Far Left Extremist wishes to quiet.

    I am a registered republican. That may change depending on how I see that party's leadership change. I am thankful for now that I haven't seen either of Ky's congressional representatives cave on issues that are important to me (most recently the confirmation of yet another socialist active judiciary member).

    The times, they are 'achangin' .

    "given that a Republican Admins. 'created' this mess"

    Don't think it was George that has spent trillions in the past months bailing out everyone that comes to lick his boots.:BangHead:

    Don't think it is George that loaded all the meetings with unions so citizens can't get in.

    Seems the greed of people caused the mess, but we wouldn't want to name sin it isn't PC.

    Eccentric,
    Sorry, but you are correct. We have put our heads in the sand soooo long that our govt. thinks we don't care.

    I did not mean that Bush alone did this; I do not think either party is/was too overly concerned with the avg. American. Which politician or party is it that really knows how I live?

    BTW, I am a Union Electrician. I am a conservative Republican. Generalities are not always true.

    During the last election a co-worker needed to vote by absentee ballot. My wife and I, being away from our homes also, had alread voted. This man and his roommate, also a co=worker had recently rented an apt. where we lived and could not access their mail box in order to get their mail, which included their absentee ballots.

    My wife had become a friend with the lady managing the apts. She at my request had this manager to open their box and placed it inside their doors prior to the deadline to have them legally counted. These two men and others who knew my politics asked me why I did this, almost to be surprised. I don't them simply I am an American and they are too, whether they voted in agreement with me or not, they have the same right to vote as I do. So I helped them.

    Partisanism has no place, but you are right, we have put our heads in the sand in all areas of our lives, including our accountability in sinfulness.

    Static Electricity can be enlightening

    Dear Friends,

    I have often been perplexed as to why the Obama administration and the Democrat Congress felt they had to rush a health care reform act through so quickly without giving any thought to the details and consequences.

    I am watching the report of the July Labor Report on C-SPAN. In the introduction by the chairman of the Joint Economic Committee Mrs. Carolyn Maloney--D. N.Y. stated that (paraphrased) the current indication of moderate job losses shows a definite indicator that the Economic Stimulus is working. However, she continued, taking this into account, the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs have also seen their health care coverage lost. (This is true of Union workers, at least under the 4th district IBEW plan I participate in). Mrs. Maloney continued to make the point that the loss of health care for these Americans who have lost their jobs and the indication of success of the Stimulus show likewise the need to pass a Health Care Reform Bill.

    Then, suddenly I had a lightening bolt strike me, or maybe it was only static electricity from the telly, this nearly caused me to drop and spill my spo'o tea, (sorry, just trying to get used to writing and speaking and thinking like a Brit. Anyway, this static electrical charge jarred a thought into my semi-brain dead Republican head. This thought told me the very reason why the Health Reform Bill must be passed.

    Anyway, before I digress, it suddenly became very clear to me. The Administration must quickly pass this Health Care Reform, BEFORE the economy shows enough recovery to lessen the APPEARANCE of a Health Care Crisis.


    Yours in Continued Hope of Constitutional Government,

    In the few presidential elections I have had the priviledge to vote in, I have learned not to support any party as a whole. The problem is political parties will go off course. We have seen this numerous times with the Republican Party. The Constitution Party's candidate (Chuck Baldwin) expressed his support for Ron Paul, whose views seem to be more Libertarian than conservative & the party supported Baldwin's decision. When I vote for a candidate, I vote for that person, not the party.

    I will make sure that I vote for the most conservative candidate. If that candidate is a strong conservative running as a Democrat, he'll get my vote (although that is very unlikely to happen). If that candidate happens to be Republican then I'll vote for him. Lately, its been the third parties that have had the strongest conservative candidates. Until the Republican Party puts a quality candidate (I'm hoping Sarah Palin, Alan Keyes, or Bobby Jindal) as their frontrunner, I will vote third party everytime.
