Ummm, Liberal politics... is what causes gridlock and a host of other things. Walter doesn't realize yet today he was the other half of some of the worst decisions and policies ever leveled on this nation. Gas lines, 18% mortgages, banks not loaning money, high unemployment, high taxes and an economy at a stand still.... sound familiar?

The only part currently missing is the mortgage rates (give it time, they killed the housing market) and we still don't know about our taxes because the current bunch of liberal Democrats has decided to hold us hostage on the Bush tax cuts until after the November elections.

Thanks Walter... for the outstanding job you and Jimmy the peanut head did for America... NOT!

Mondale said off stage after his nomination acceptance speech, "listen to them cheer, we’re going to tax their asses off".

If government was relatively impotent then big business would not waste its money lobbying congress. The libtards set up oppressive government regulations then they speak out of both sides of their mouth about big business- they bemoan the "influence that BB has, but they love being showered with all the attention from BB.

People like Mondale spent their life trying to strengthen the power of federal government to make society "more just" and what they have done is polarize society in the process. This process of using government as a moral club is the polarizing issue.

It is not a moral club but just a club. They may speak about justice but it is actually about government being at the helm of the peoples' lives.

It has gotten to the point that we are polarized between who should hold the power, the government or the people.

I agree... their slogan could be.. " The beatings will continue until morale improves."

Apparently communists and their convenient idiots like Mondale get upset when the incite a Civil War. I don't get it. Your brothers take over 1/3 of the private property of the United States, and you think there will be no repercussions?

It's like there are a few communists that have a clue, like Obama and his Czars, and the rest of you were just too stupid to read any history book- anywhere. Very sad. Now shut up cupcake and reap what you've sewn.

Allow the man a little happiness. Soon the Carter/Mondale administration will not be known as the worst administration in history.

I completly agree. Its the brain damaged policy of liberals, such as Mondale/Carter. Aint's post was dead, dead on. Liberal hatred a few years ago started it, the Obamanation has turned it into a national plague. Or do you think the civil unrest that started about four months into O bombs term is Bushs' fault? No, its sheep like you that vote the way you do.

Wait 20 years moron. People will look upon Bush as a guy who acted like a man and was a tough leader. Obama will look like what he does now: inept, out of his league, weak and a cataclysmic failure, along with brain damaged followers like you who will still have his picture on your wall, blaming Bush. You are the same who ostracisized Reagan whom incidentally was named the greatest man of the 20th century. Maybe some day you will come to grips with being wrong all the time.

January 2007 the Democrats (liberals) take control of bother houses of Congress. Unemployment rate 4.6%.

January 3rd 2007 the complete national debt was exactly $8.67 trillion. That debt was accumulated in 231 years of our nation. Today as of the 14th of September, 2010, that debt is now $13.44 trillion. If my math is correct that is an increase of $4.77 trillion. That increase was accumulated in a little over 3 years and 8 months. Let's think about that. It took 231 years to accumulate a debt of $8.67 trillion, and in less than four years that debt has increased by $4.77 trillion. That's an increase of 55%.

Ah, yes, the memories....When Reagan was running for his second term & mondale stepped up to the plate. I was stationed out of the state & the mud flinging by mondale was embarrassing. He didn't stand a chance. And then he actually won MN.:( Talk about the deer in the headlights!! And when wellstone died, mondale got the blessed nod. It was so late in the game, he didn't stand a chance then, either. And that memorial service...Maybe they're misunderstood....

Mondale is right. He will go down in history as a decent man and sensible politician. Unfortunately, he had to live into the age of brainwashed wing nuts and such chicken hawk leaders as the deserter W or Reagan who was in the military for years but managed to avoid all active service from WW II thru Viet Nam.
