Nonsense. We need to continue what we have been doing for the last two years. Cut spending, cut government jobs, keep the Bush tax cuts. The bi-partisan work has been great. All we need now is a white president again.

Really? We need to continue what we've been doing for the last two years, you say. Well, I guess Obama should work for you. He's been in the House for the last two years and you just credited him for everything. LOL

I pray in the name of Joseph Smith that I will have the courage to vote for the most Mormon of the candidates in all races. ONLY SOCIAL issues matter to me.

Obama would have done nothing if not for the bipartisan support of the Congress. There's a lot of complaining, but everyone in office should get credit and blame. Obama is okay. I just happen to prefer a Mormon president. It's about faith and SOCIAL ISSUES for me. Maybe you don't understand Joseph Smith. He corrected the old Bible. It was broken and needed fixing, just like our secular country. We need a theocracy.

That is what the muslims also say, about "correcting" the bible.
Don't be duped my friend! It does not need corrected.

Well....that's what happens when over 95% of one party signs a pledge to one person, Grover Norquist, instead of to the American people who voted them in.

Mitt Romney Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge



Mitt Romney Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge
Massachusetts Governor makes written promise to eschew tax hikes

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a candidate vying for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, recently signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR). The Pledge commits signers to “oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses … and oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates."

Gov. Romney became the first major candidate to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge on December 31st, 2006. As Governor, Mitt Romney pressed for several major tax cuts in the difficult blue-state environment of Massachusetts.

ATR has offered the Pledge to all candidates for federal office since 1987. To date, President George W. Bush, 43 U.S. senators, and 197 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed the Pledge. Additionally, seven Governors and over 1,100 state legislators have signed the Pledge as well.

“In signing the Pledge, Gov. Romney firmly commits himself in writing to fiscal discipline and economic common sense,” Grover Norquist said.“Mitt Romney has told taxpayers in no uncertain terms that he plans to look out for their interests.”

“I strongly encourage every Presidential candidate to sign the Pledge,” Norquist continued.

We have been studying Washington politics and Congress for more than 40 years, and never have we seen them this dysfunctional. In our past writings, we have criticized both parties when we believed it was warranted. Today, however, we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

When one party moves this far from the mainstream, it makes it nearly impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the country's challenges.

You do understand of course, that the less intellectually gifted Topix contributors will take your comments literally. Witness, for example, the witless retort of one calling itself "goose".

There has been no bipartisan support since Obama has been in office. We lost our triple A credit rating because Boehmer and the republicans said at first they would meet the president half-way, then backed away. They would rather see Obama blamed for the downfall than work with him. As for Joseph Smith, he's just a man. God knows how to protect His Word, and doesn't need humans re-writing it. No human is perfect. The bible has lasted for centuries and so many have tried to "re-write" and change it into something that fits their religious views. It only ends up with everyone fighting. Funny how no one dares change the wording in the Koran.

Norquist is a cancer on America. He needs to be excised.
