Both preach the same message, both are wrong.
Liberialism = Lowest Common Denominator for All
I wondered why the article didn't say the results of the poll were racist. A lot of folks are fed up with being a Democrat's N-word.

I listened to air america on the way home yesterday and they were saying that we need more taxes and government control to get things back on track. It amazes me how uneducated these people are.

You mean one of the greatest congressional members of our time? If everyone was like her, we would be in great shape as a country. Wouldn't it be awesome if she became speaker of the house?

Jim Oberstar and his mentor, John Blatnik, have been the Representative from the heavily DFL Iron Range since 1948.(I almost made a mistake as said they "represented" the Iron Range!) They have always been re-elected wth 70-80 percent of the vote, polling over 90% in many Range precincts.

I heard that a few weeks ago Oberstar was booed in Eveleth!

To put this in perspective; if Campbells made Condensed Iron Range Soup, inside the can you'd get Eveleth.

House Travel Stipends Probed

Congressional investigators are questioning a half-dozen lawmakers for possibly misspending government funds meant to pay for overseas travel, according to people familiar with the matter.

The investigation follows a Wall Street Journal article in March that said lawmakers had used daily cash stipends, meant to cover certain costs of official government travel overseas, to cover expenses that appeared to be unauthorized by House rules. An independent ethics board has referred the matter to the House ethics committee.

Congressional rules say the daily travel funds, called a per diem, must be spent on meals, cabs and other travel expenses. But when lawmakers travel, many of their meals and expenses are picked up by other people, such as foreign governmentofficials or U.S. ambassadors.

That can leave lawmakers with leftover money. Lawmakers routinely keep the extra funds or spend it on gifts, shopping or to cover their spouses' travel expenses, according to dozens of current and former lawmakers.

The cash payments vary according to the cost of living and range from about $25 a day in Kabul to more than $250 a day in one part of Japan. Lawmakers also usually request and receive an additional $50 a day. Leftover funds can add up to more than $1,000 a trip for longer visits to expensive regions.

Both need to go ASAP.
You're wrong about "worst president ever". That designation lands squarely on George W Bush. If McCain and Palin were had won the last election, our economy would be in such a deep depression that there would be a great migration to Asia to find work.

In November we will finally see "change".
Maybe, but I have the feeling that Republicans will just go back to spending slightly less than the Democrats. They've got their supporters to thank as well.

I was all over the north shore last weekend, and it appeared that the Cravaack signs outnumbered Oberstar's 50-1. But, that doesn't mean much.

How many other people do you have living with you under your rock? Is IrishMN there?
The Hope and Changers got screwed, we all did. This President is a clueless chump. He's so bad, that Hillary is thinking of running in 2012, and Dem politicians won't even mention his name or their party affiliation in ads.
Wonder why America is pissed? Because they no Congress and the President are clueless:
