And the GOP now holds narrow advantages over Democrats on handling an array of top issues, including the economy, immigration and the federal budget.

Evidently, the American people are beginning to see the damage the Democrats are inflicting on this great Republic.

We've been "aimed the wrong way" since Ronnie Ray-gun was Prez back in the early '80s. Obama was a slight course change in the other direction, but 'baggers want us to veer to the far Right again.

I say 'hell, no.' Right wing government would destroy our nation.

Um, no.

Our Founders, anti-monarchist democrats, were the radical leftists of their day. Lincoln? A Progressive who believed in big-government solutions. FDR found that government had to control business, which repeatedly led us to the brink of economic disaster. Truman, LBJ? Helped end racism while helping the poor and elderly.

ONLY Progressives/Liberals have made America. Righties make us weak, divided, and stupid.

BTW....I can't stand EITHER of the Clintons, clown.

Words of wisdom from a 'classical economist' and very much a capitalist. The saying applies more to 'capital' than 'land'.
"As soon as the land of any country has all become private property, the landlords, like all other men, love to reap where they never sowed, and demand a rent even for its natural produce." (Adam Smith)

And your point is that Obama acted like a capitalist when he shut down all the national parks last October when Congress was late in paying his rent. Nice try, but Obama is no capitalist. He is a thief, a thug, no different from any other gangster.

I was not referring to Obama at all, but it seems that, to you, everything is attributable to Obama. You must be an idealist.

rethugs have clearly stated that their only goal is to sabotage any move obama makes. At one time we had statesmen of both parties whose only goal was the good of the country. Where have they gone. I remember a time when Democrats and Republicans socialized freely and worked out the nation's problems in a non hostile atmosphere.

Ha, You're sadly mistaking the contents of this article if you think this is intended as a vote of confidence for GOP leadership. ROFL

In 6 years the GOP has been rutteress offering zilch to the citizens after ruining a stable economy with 4% UE

The nation was founded, defended and grew by liberals. Conservatives brought run away inflation and unmanagable deficit spending with their influence.

I should have known, the Clintons were too center right for you!! Too bad Bernie Sanders isn't going to run, huh? Well, there's always the other communist, Lizzy Warren. I hear the Sqaw is thinking about wasting her supporters cash for a try in 2016. Cheers!
Get back to me when you can prove something incorrect, simpleton. Your babbling, Rightie ideology makes you look quite the hypocritical fool.

Bernie is at least a Socialist, which is as close as you get to the truth in your silly post...LOL

We've been aimed the wrong way since that idiot LBJ announced his war on poverty in '64. Tax more, spend more, multiply social programs, and restrict freedom more and more. Yea liberals!

We all know why LBJ did it, and now 16 trillion dollars later we're in a hole too deep to dig out of. But he got his wish -- millions more dependent democrats with their greedy paws stretched toward D.C.!

Oh, by the way, no one gives a sh*t what you say.
