With Republican overall approval rating at 32% and a majority of Americans directly blaming the GOP for the government shut down, your enthusiam for an election seems a bit strange. I say bring it on. The Tea Party is your worst enemy.

More and more Americans are recognizing that republikans cannot lead, cannot follow and cannot get out of the way. Republikans are their own worst enemy .

It's great that you idiots haven't noticed the approval rate for Obamacare and good old Mr.Obama. Apparently, most people can't get Obamacare, because of the computer software problem, which only cost a paltry 600 million,.Apparently, you two haven't noticed, that the few people who do get on, are getting hosed.So, who is responsible for that debacle?

Obama's approval seems to be well above 32% last time I checked. The Site will be up and running soon. Just be a good and patient little Republican. I bet you eventually will sign on.

What's your idea of soon?

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/10/obamaca...

A 600 million dollar screw up is pretty expensive. They could have bought healthcare for quite a few U.S. citizens for that amount and probably paid a high school kid to come up with a better program for the screwed up portal.

You be a good little Democrat cheerleader and maybe you can win a date with the prom king, President Temper Tantrum.

Now, let's compare the $600 million to the $24 BILLION that the idiot Ted Cruz and the Tea Party cost the economy and let's all give a big cheer to the idiot party that you are the lead cheerleader for. Not even in the ballpark when you make the comparison. As Waco likes to say, "Do the math".

Don't know what planet you are on, the Democrats are sinking just as bad, if not worse, than the Republicans. FYI, who cares about the Tea Party? They had nothing to do with Obama's disaster. Dam*, maybe if someone had read the dam* thing, this crap wouldn't have happened in the first place. Oh wait, couldn't have done that, that would have been the intelligent thing. Washington, being nothing BUT lawyers, not reading the bill, should have sent flags up everywhere. How many lawyers sign something BEFORE they read it?? Duh.

Exactly what does "well above" mean?? "Just 33% of whites approve of the job Obama is doing as president, while 60% disapprove." [Pew Research]" "And in McClatchy/Marist - David Lightman:“Stung by Americans' persistent worries about the economy and a capital gripped by controversy and gridlock, President Barack Obama is suffering his lowest job approval numbers in nearly two years, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll...Overall, the poll found Obama's job approval at 41 percent last week, a sharp drop from April's 50 percent and his worst showing in the poll since 39 percent in September 2011. Forty-eight percent disapproved in the latest poll, up from April's 46 percent.[McClatchy]" and this from the Huffington Post in JULY!!!!! I'm just positive it's climbed since then to astronomical heights.

Well, maybe it has climbed a little, "The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove (see trends).

The latest figures include 29% of all likely voters who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 38% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9.

Republicans are losing credibility because they are too fractionated and just not radical enough. Think what could happen if they all united:
Republicans against children, Republicans against veterans, republicans against education, republicans against teachers , republicans against seniors, republicans against the poor, republicans against clean water, republicans against clean air, republicans against public health, republicans against Obama, republicans against the USA. republicans against blacks , republicans against Hispanics, republicans against freedom of religion, republicans against --(fill in the blank). United, these groups could achieve their ultimate goal of completely destroying the USA and becoming part of the Utopian Peoples Republic of China.

Maybe, we should just pass a law against insurance of any kind. Insurance is a socialist idea to begin with. If we all just oppose everything (except tax breaks for the rich) and support nothing, offer no solutions to anything, bitch , whine and cry, then possibly the Koch brothers will send us all checks as tea party organizers.

The only problem with the health care sign up website is the blank about age. People don't know whether to enter their age now or the age they will be when it goes into effect.):

TSF, thanks for starting day off with a good old belly laugh.

When I was home, I actually tried to get on the website to find out for myself several times to see if it was the screw up the media said it was. Well, it was. I finally called the number because I couldn't get past my name and email address, and DOB. This is the help I received after holding forever. The man I talked to told me to keep trying or I send in an application but the paper application would take much longer and if I tried at 2 or 3 a.m. I just might be able to apply online.

Can you believe this? Who gets up at 2 a.m. to sign up for insurance?

I finally said, "You're kidding right?" He was clueless. You guys are in a world of hurt if this is their method to the madness for signing up for health.

I read an article by CNN-pretty liberal and they had people sitting there with a clock and after 90 minutes, no one had been able to get anywhere on the healthcare.gov site. Again, why didn't the government hire a couple of high school kids to set up a program for them. If anyone can do anything on a computer high school kids can.

With new laws going into effect to supress the voting rights of women, blacks, seniors and college students here in this state, I pulled out my voter registration card. I am registered to vote under my name given at birth. Six years ago I got married and kept my maiden name as my middle and took my husbands last name. Because the name on my drivers licence and social security card do not match the one on my voter registration card there is a possibility that I could be turned away from the polls and not be allowed to vote. So yesterday I took measures to make that correction.

ATTENTION WOMEN: If your name has changed since the last time you voted, it would be wise to contact your local Board of Elections and make the necesary changes.

Allen, 33 years ago I married and kept my maiden name and took my husband's last name. Never have had a problem voting. Your social security number never changes and your N.C. driver's license or ID card requires you have your full name, no matter how many you use, so there should be no problem. BTW, I've never been asked for my social security card to vote. I would think if you have proper picture ID with all your names listed on it, that should suffice. It's always wise to have your social security card updated, especially if you're a senior and are getting close to the age of drawing "your old people check" as I call it.

TSF, stop the stereotyping. I'm certainly not against seniors as I am one. I'm not against teachers, only ones that give a half butt education to students and then wonder why kids int he U.S. are dumb as bowling balls. I certainly am not against clean air and when I'm home, I use a well, so I'm not against clean water. I'm not against the military since I have several family members that proudly serve and have put their lives on the line for this country. I'm not against children and I believe you have probably read more than one post where I think they need to be taken from parents that don't care for them. I'm against the poor that won't help themselves, so sue me. I'm not against public health (if you mean health departments etc) or clinics for low income as I happen to think my child does a pretty good child working to help these people. I am against people that troll these places for prescription drugs, not health care. I'm not against blacks, but I don't feel the need to mollycoddle them because of the color of their skin as many are intimidated by them and feel we owe them something because they were slaves. We're all indentured servants to our government currently, so we're all slaves. I don't have a problem with Hispanics with the exception if they're not here legally. You think if we go to Mexico, that government is going to give us healthcare, free education and supplemental income that our government feels we need to do for "illegals"? I don't like Obama and IMO has done nothing to earn my respect for him and that's a personal preference, you seem to think he's the cat's meow. Again, personal preference. I'm certainly not against religion and think people ought to worship however they wish. I know if they're freedom is taken away mine would be too. I'm not against the U.S. just the pathetic state it has sunk to and that's why I chose to get out for a while and enjoy a more docile, laid back lifestyle. Nothing wrong with that. Many seniors go to Florida, but I chose to go further south and if people don't like that I don't care. I only have one life and I intend to live it the way I choose, not the government.

Think before you speak. You don't know every Republican or what they're for or against.

Maybe the Dems and Repubs should just switch mascots. The repubs are working hard so hopfully we will forget. You know, little things, like the fiasco with Medicare Part-D.
