The low information, uninformed voters won't believe this. They are living in some kind of bubble. For whatever reason, they are convinced they will be immune to all of this. Pretty incredible.
Thanks for the link.
I didn't read all 111 comments, most are FED UP & upset & wonder how it came to this.

We the public look for what is wrong in our leaders, rather then what is right. The media loves the trash. We idealize then devalue. People are complicated. We all have strengths and limitations. We have things that are great about us, and we have our personal failings. Why do we think politicians or athletes are immune from being humans?
2. Politicians are televised. Jimmy Carter didn't have much television presence. Perhaps that is why he got so much credit as being the best "ex president". He was off camera.
3. FDR was elected for four terms. He wouldn't make it for one, with polio today, in a wheelchair.
4. Ronald Reagan was hugely popular. He was a great orator.
5. Why don't we have checks and balances so that the stealing doesn't happen. It seems like land deals back door is how so many of them become wealthy. What price are we the people paying for no checks and balances? We focus on foodstamp fraud. Piddly compared to the dollars stolen at the top. We are focussing on somebody who might be ripping off the system at 100 a month, while ignoring those stealing millions from the taxpayer. I don't get it.
6. If we could get out of this "democrat"/ "republican" labeling, maybe we could actually get something done again.
7. It takes money, but we are paying a very heavy price by placing money at the top of the list of what we value. We have moved away from our core values.
8. People don't get involved. We are trained that the only people with voices are lawyers.
Why don't we have checks and balances? The answer is obvious. The people making the laws are the ones that make the checks and balances. They give themselves pay raises and every perk that one can think of. By doing that the taxpayer is giving them everything that they want. They have control over the news media which fails to inform the public just what rotten things these politicians have done.
Yes, we are being striped of money but the far worse thing is that we are being striped of our freedom.

@Man in Plaid - Great post.
When the only outlets for information were newspapers and network television, there truly was a monopoly on information outlets and the public was pretty much at the mercy of the ideology of those who ran the newspapers and networks. These were and are dominated by those with leftward leanings. With the rise of talk radio - which I happily agree does lean right, a different view point was readily available for the first time. But most importantly of all, the internet has made information available for any who want it and are willing to do a little work. You still have to deal with the possible slant that may exist on what you find on the net, but there is also information available that is strictly factual with no inherent bias. You can find out exactly what tax revenue the govt receives and who pays it. You can find out the percentages of people in a state that supported a candidate. You can read opinions straight from the source rather than going through someone else's filter. It may still not be fool proof, but never has an individual been able to school themselves on a subject with such ease.
As to your points about career politicians on both sides of the aisle - couldn't agree more. Which is why I would love to see term limits. Let's get back to what the Founders envisioned - citizen legislators who SERVED for a period of time and then went back to the real world.
I don't know if you have noticed or not but the internet is being cleaned. It used to be there were many facts on it that showed different points of views but now it is getting like the nightly news. Go to one site and read it and then you are looking for a different angle on a story but they are all written by the same person. Many of the different sites now use the same story, word for word. Just as the news media has been doing. The story is the same and the words are identical right from the White House.
For example just look up almost anything on Obama and the same stories will be on site after site. You will probably not find anything on the legitimate web pertaining to him that is not been cleaned. I was looking up communism the other night and I was shocked to see how all the sites made communism look like it was a great idea. I have seen stories that have come out and within an hour or two disappear because they had something in them that the government or this administration didn't want you to see. Even the web is being censured right in front of your eyes.
This is the last piece of the puzzle that must be controlled to complete the new agenda. Almost all the news that is now being put on the web, which is more than tv, is approved by the higher powers to be. There are a few rouge news media outlets but even Fox pretty much goes along with the flow since a couple of years ago.
I have seen people starting to make a controversial statement on Fox and the station would go off the air for about a minute until that comment was over. This has happened several times lately.
With censorship the masses will always be ignorant. Even this site deletes controversial statements. I think this is the new norm.

I have been using most of them and more for years. That is about it, and sometimes stories suddenly disappear on them. All stories must be taken with a grain of salt.

Personally, I am surprised Fox News is still on the air. I remember a couple of years back, Obama made the statement he wanted Fox news done away with.

That is when Fox changed its format and quit giving away state secrets. They had to conform or be kicked off the air. They are still better than CNN.

How do you know? You don't watch Fox. I have watched Fox for years and noticed immediately when they throttled back on the hot news stories.

Well, Columbus Native is still mostly full of nonsense, I see.
- 67% non Republican? Than how did Romney get 48% of the vote - surprise, surprise, your numbers don't add up
- However, you are absolutely right that Gingrich let the 1994 incoming freshman Republicans down when he backed a 12 year term limit plan that went nowhere, instead of the 6-8 year limit that they wanted. Can't argue with you there.
- Don't worry about Republicans "euthanizing" "the system", worry more about Democrats pushing euthanasia for the elderly - that is far more likely. Remember Obama's suggestion for the 100 year old woman whose doctor said her only hope was a pacemaker that "maybe she would be better off taking a pain killer."
- so explain your vulgar comment about Mrs. Romney who from all appearances is a woman of character and grace who raised 5 sons. The Romneys gave away in charity far more than the Clintons, Gores, Bidens, and Obamas combined. Democrats are the ones who come into office with nothing and than parlay it into millions.
So am I mad, yes. I am mad that 51% of those that voted were too uninformed or too partisan to realize the disaster that putting Obama back in office could be for this country.
And so romney was your answer, too bad, he lost!

While you laugh Our President has almost 4 more years! Let's see how you laugh when he taxes you more to pay for Iraq and Haliburton. He is going to tax the hell out of you and your kind and TAKE it by force, This will be the most laughing part of it. I'll be clapping and laughing while you get taken to the cleaners.

Romney was not my choice, but once he won the nomination - you bet I supported him. Heaven knows he would have been exponentially better for this country than the man currently in the White House.
Romney worked for a living, he didn't spend his adult years in the echo chambers of academia or as a "community organizer" sitting in a church listening to a race baiting bigot.
