Good points.

Perhaps it's because just like owners of the NFC teams and the AFC teams. The owners don't care really don't care at all who wins the Super Bowl, as long as there is a Super Bowl, and the taxpayers keep subsidizing their billion dollar profits.

Republicans and Democrats don't really care whose theories are used to run the Republic, as long as the system created to assure their control, and their ability to loot the country, is not challenged.

Consider the War in Iraq, the biggest debacle in the history of country. We killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people, killed 6,000 American troops, lost Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, destroyed the sworn enemy of our enemy Iran, created thousands of new terrorists, and spent trillions creating billions of borrowed dollars.

But we did create billions in profits for B-P, Exxon-Mobil, Halliburton, General Electric, Dyncorp, Lockheed Martin, etc.

So the Iraq War was a huge success - only for the intended beneficiaries. The rest got screwed.

It is interesting to note that the last balanced budget we had was under Clinton, a Democrat, and the deficit returned ass soon as Bush cut taxes and government revenue by tax breaks to the richest.

Bring on that "fiscal cliff"- let's swan dive off that thing, it can only improve things.

I think you are thinking correctly, at least for the last term.

That's a good reason to never let either the Republicans or Democrats have all the power.

At least when Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum have to share power, the result is better than when either one can unilaterally act.

Just a thought.

Clinton had a democrat led house and Senate for two years 1993 to 1995. The rest was with republican controlled house and senate. Clinton signed alot of good bills that were crafted by the republicans. He did what was best for the country, can't say that about the clown we have now.

I will not vote for anyone presently serving in congress due to the childlike way they have conducted themselves lately and I sent both Gingrey and Isakson messages stating such.

Clinton signed NAFTA and the the law that repealed Glass-Steagall (allowing investment banks to pretend they were ordinary banks and ordinary banks to gamble and speculate with taxpayers' money at taxpayers" expense).

Clinton was rewarded with millions in consulting fees, millions in gifts to his "Library", and millions to "serve" on corporate councils and boards.

All that for selling out the working man.

But he proved that all you have to do to balance the budget and pay down the national debt is not be quite as incredibly wacko and/or corrupt as President Cheney.

Lets just try to be a little bit honest. Clinton had Newt, who along with most other repugs at the time were not closed minded and were more than willing to compromise for the good of the country. Thatís the way government is supposed to work, its not like that today. Today the tea party repugs are not going to compromise on much of anything other than kicking the can down the road until after the next election. The so called clown you have now is having to deal with a bunch on closed minded morons only interested in the next election cycle and THATS the main reason the Republican Party is going to change or go away. You and the Republican Party have pissed of the blacks, mexicans, women and all the white people that care about others. Keep up the good work, you are killing the Republican Party with all this nonsense.
