Franken challenger: Dem-controlled Senate land of ‘10,000 excuses'
By Benjamin Goad

Sen. Al Franken’s Republican challenger made a case Saturday for a power shift in the upper chamber, using the GOP’s weekly address to bash Democrats’ regulatory and education policies.

Mike McFadden, who is seen as having an uphill battle in his bid to unseat the Minnesota Democrat, accused the majority party of failed leadership in the years following the Great Recession.

“President Obama and Senate Democrats have had their chance to turn our economy around, but all we’re doing is running in place. We can do better,” McFadden said.

“This November presents a tremendous opportunity for America to elect new leaders, with the vision to turn our country around, and get us back onto the path of growth and prosperity.”

McFadden said the Obama administration and congressional Democrats have presided over a regulatory agenda that has stifled the recovery. He cited a major Minnesota copper and nickel-mining project that has been stalled while its proponents await approval from seven regulatory agencies,“which is crazy.”

As would be figured no mention of the GOP conspiracy to stall recovery and forward progress in Congress. The citizens had not forgotten.

Both are to blame since both the Republicans and Democrats today favor Liberalism as FDR called it besides the only difference is the direction Liberalism or Government Spending should take which is Republicans favor the Trickle Down approach of Old Left Liberalism like FDR implemented vs Trickle Up approach of Liberalism which depends on Citizens to be dependent on the Federal Government for the New Left Liberalism to work which is favored by the Liberal Democrats.

Democrats will likely lose seats in the House, and they will lose the Senate hopefully by veto proof proportions. This country cannot survive 2 more years of the Won, without a Republican House, and Senate.

You must have because there are 40 Republican bills that are stalled by the Senate.

DumBama has no real plans for recovery. All his plans are to spend more money. How can somebody never in the business world--never even ran a lemonade stand tell us how to recover?

The one thing that would help business is if DumBama wasn't so anti-business. That would be a good place to start.

I remember the whole “the country can’t survive” mantra from the right after the 2008 Election… and then before the 2012 Election… and now it is the country can’t survive unless the republicans get a veto proof majority.

You guys are a pathetic joke.

This great country has survived in spite of your right-wingers doing everything cause it to do otherwise. Your numbers are in the tank and all you guys have been able to do is get President Obama’s approval ratings into the min to low 40’s… congratulations. The Democrats will hold the Senate with a small chance of taking control of the House… it will be pure heaven on here it that happens… I will wallow in the right-wing misery and frustration when we keep the Senate, and especially if we take the House, LOL!

Even Madam Pelosi knows they cannot take back the House, and are losing the Senate in November. The Democrats were just surprised again at the loss of the Alaskan Governor yesterday. You cannot lie, and cheat your way to a winning election.

Laugh all you want, because we Americans remember what happened last time we were in "pure heaven." The government took control of one-sixth of our private economy not to mention control over various other private entities and the trillions more in new debt.

No thank you, we've had enough pure heaven for a while. Now it's time to get serious about the problems facing our country. See ya in November when it all happens.

They will win because of the gerrymander. Even though total votes will favor Democrats. They must stack the deck to win. If they lose they cry like babies and form nut job groups like the tea party because they are sore losers.

Really? Then I suggest you look up Bush vs Gore and read what happened back then. Most of the country had to switch from reliable punch card machines to less reliable scanners and computer voting machines.

No, Obama the Brilliant has made it impossible for the Democrats to hold the Senate, it will go Republican, and there is no chance the Democrats can take back the house with Obama's approval numbers tanking more every day. He has gotten us back into the Iraq war, and even now has no clue what to do. And he can't ask Hillary for advise, she's angry with him. She doesn't even want his endorsement if she pretends to run for President.

Black people makeup 13% of the country, yet they make up about 60% of the leading news stories and headlines. The more whites hate on Obama, Michelle, Kanye, Jay-Z, various black Rappers, Sports, and Reality stars… the better (for the Democrats, that is).

White anger, hostility, and rage against blacks, draws blacks closer to the Democrats. Therefore, Democrats need the Liberal media to incite racial hostility and tension, every chance they get. Racial harmony and equality is the last thing on earth that a Liberal politician wants (regardless of whether that politician is black or white). Racism is big business that produces big returns at the ballot box.

Democrats are now in the process of trying to expand into the ‘Sexism-business’.

Yes the republicans can then operate under the new rules Harry made. Good luck getting commie judges nominated.
