Job search? No such entry in the Big Lexicon O' Liberalspeak [ http://dailycaller.com/2010/09/20/a-lexicon-f... ].
The pro-abort patricians, their feckless dependents, and the mainstream media always get their panties in a wad when the lumpenproles rise up and reinstall grownups as majorities in Congress.(Cf. ABC's Peter "The voters had a temper tantrum last week" Jennings in 1994) There'll be a lot of wadded panties come Nov. 3.
"The Center for Responsive Politics has described the rate of contributions by TEA partiers to conservative senate candidates as “unprecedented.” Its analysis of available Federal Elections Commission records reveals that the Second American Revolution we are living through is being fueled by donations of $200.00 or less.
"These small donations are substantially outpacing the normal amount of such donations which typically comes to about 20% for Senate candidates.
"Around the country conservatives are experiencing this surge of small donations. In Pennsylvania, Pat Toomey is receiving 1/3 of his donations from small donations, while Florida’s Marco Rubio is at 46%.
"In Kentucky Rand Paul is at the same 46% and Delaware’s Christine O’Donnell is getting small donations at the rate of 45%. The big winners in the “small donations” race are Joe Miller in Alaska at 51% and Nevada’s Sharron Angle who is enjoying small donor support making up a huge 58% of her campaign finance receipts.

No, that's the MO of the platitude-spouting Hopenchanger in Chief, whose elixir of socialism has fewer and fewer buyers every day. Except for the terminally feckless and government-dependent, the rest of the country is wising up.

YOU are accusing anyone else of spouting platitudes? What a hypocrite you are!

The problem is that people are always whining about making changes but actually doing so scares the living crap out of them. Wake me when one of your teabagger poster-children actually comes up with a delineated pan of action. All they HAVE are slogans.

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009 it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, the start of the 110th Congress. The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
For those who are listening to those propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:
January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:
AT THE TIME:
* The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
* The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
* The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
* George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!
REMEMBER THE DAY...
* January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the
House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the
Senate Banking Committee.
The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what
part of the economy?
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!!!
THANK YOU DEMOCRATS for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOS!(BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy).
And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac????
OBAMA
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie???
OBAMA and the Democratic Congress
So when some one tries to blame Bush...
REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!" Bush may have been in the car but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel they were driving.
Set the record straight on Bush! Place responsibility where it belongs.
"It's not that liberals aren't smart, it's just that so much of what they know isn't so" - Ronald Reagan
the dems have nothing but are still crying that bush created all this. it is because they are scr*wing up this country so badly that they sing the same song over and over. pretty funny if you ask me. wait till nov. 2 fannie and freddie are a joke and bush did try to stop all that. the potus is at a 48% approval rating right now. oh yeah he is on his way out at the next election and good riddance. i do not want to live under a socialist republic and obamacare is fraudulant. full of lies for us all to swallow. well not me or most of the country. teabag party? they will succeed and our grandkids will be reading all about this revolution in their history books as what changed america!

Hey, you're the clueless moron who thinks a fetus is a baby. Need I say more, empress of empty-headedness?

One should have concern when idiots try to take over the country. So, maybe you can tell me what their ACTUAL PLAN is to reduce the deficit? They sure as hell can't--not one of your palin-licking demagogues has put forth any definite plans on doing this, or anything else. Nor will thy discuss social issues, since that would make them out to be the obvious fascists they are.

You mean, for example, the Republican Health Care Plan (scored by the CBO last November), which Democrats refused to look at or allow debate on: http://gopleader.gov/UploadedFiles/Summary_of... ?

Or maybe the specific steps outlined in the Republicans' Pledge to America [ http://pledge.gop.gov/resources/library/docum... ], on which the Republican Congressional majority will begin work as soon as they're sworn in next January.

"Give small businesses a tax deduction equal to 20% of their business income" and "End government control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac" have a rather welcome specificity, not to mention sanity.

Gotta give His Obamaness credit for at least one thing. Messianic complex, sonorous bromides and all, he'd never try to outdo the indefatigable pro-aborts who spend most of their waking hours recycling 1970s slogans on Topix. For that matter, he wouldn't have enough waking hours to say "It's not a baby!! It's a z/e/f!!" 35,000 times as Bitner has. Obama just doesn't want either daughter to get "punished" with a baby if she got pregnant... or to let his grandkid live if it managed to survive an abortion: http://www.nrlc.org/ObamaBAIPA/2003AmendedILB...

Speaking of specificity, a new election mandates a new slogan for the Hopenchanger in Chief: toon2_082410.jpg.cms . Quite a few Democrats are running on it, fervidly trying to distance themselves from ObamaCare and similar liberal boondoggles, which they know are soundly repudiated by the majority of Americans.

Maybe you should take a break from your 11,000-posts-a-year addiction to Topix and compose a congratulatory letter to send Nov. 3 to your new -- Republican -- Senator Dan Coats.

Poll averages Sept. 14-Oct. 1: Coats +17.0 points over the Democrat

Firt of all, the teabaggers aren't republicans--listen to them whine if you call them that. Secondly, the "pledge" is nothing more than platitudes; they sound good but would be virtually impossible to make work.

A plan requires not just the end-goal, but how something is implemented. This laundry-list of feel-good voter-porn doesn't say how any of it will work together, much less what happens if any of it fails to pass.

We already know the news on Nov. 2 will be good. There are early indications it might be better than good.

[Ed Morrissey] "Jim Geraghty [ http://www.nationalreview.com/campaign-spot/2... ] got an e-mail from a reader who crunched the numbers thus far in the early-voting states, and the news looks pretty encouraging so far from the GOP. Comparing the numbers from 2008, Geraghty’s reader says that in seven key states, Republicans have improved their performance in turnout for early voting thus far by almost 15 points, a stunning turnaround and one that may put the likely-voter models used by even the best pollsters in doubt. The smallest gain is 4.2% in West Virginia, where even Democrats are breaking towards the GOP, to a 27-point gain in Florida, where over half of all early voting has been Republicans.

"Both Florida and West Virginia are key states, but there are a couple more on Jim’s list. In Colorado, where voters have to choose a governor and a Senator, Republican ballots increased over 7 points from the 2008 early voting. That will be good news for Ken Buck for his Senate race and perhaps even Tom Tancredo in his independent bid for governor, both in tight races. In Nevada, the Clark County vote (which includes Las Vegas) shows an increase of 7 points for Republicans, and in Washoe County (Reno, Tahoe) the GOP have increased over 11 points in early-voting turnout. That’s good news for Sharron Angle, and really bad news for Harry Reid.

"Pollsters expected a more robust Republican turnout in 2010 than in 2008, of course. In analyzing most of their likely-voter models in the last few weeks, it’s clear that they didn’t expect a +15 in the gap from 2008. Many of them have been arguing that Democrats had begun closing that gap in the last two weeks. Assuming that holds up not just in early voting but also in Election Day turnout (as well as absentee ballots, which get counted on Election Day and not as early voting), then most of the likely-voter models will have significantly underestimated the Republican wave, even apart from the right turn of the independents. Even if GOP turnout on Election Day turns out to be half as significant, the likely voter models will still have left the polls short of the amplitude of the wave that’s coming."
