It doesn't matter whether you're a Glenn Beck-quoting, gun-toting, Tea Party-voting Evangelical, or a solar-heating, tofu-eating, New York Times crossword puzzle-cheating Environmentalist, you still got to admire the way the president breathed life into the health care reform bill.

I agree with everything you said. However, the problem is, I understand that the blame is equally shared by both parties.

Exactly when will this country wake up and see the two-party system for what it really is, a complete and utter failure?

There are primary challengers in the Republican party. For the first time in decades, John McCain has a primary fight on his hands. The weasels don't all belong to the Democrat party. The entrenched political ruling class has been outed. They are finding out they answer to us, we don't answer to them.

I thank John Mccain for his service to our country as a soldier and a politician.

Now its time to retire, John.

It sure is. And many things can change from now until then. And many things will either stay the same or get worse.

The President's numbers ar falling. They are now at 45% approval. Usually when the approval numbers are at that level, the disapproval numbers are usually around 28 to 30%. But Mr Obama's disapproval numbers are at 45% in some polls. And once the approval numbers go below 42% it is rare that the President can accomplish his agenda. In England it would be considered a "No Confidence".

The House and Senate races will tighten. But many challengers will be running against the Health Care Bill, as over 55% of voters nationwide want the Bill repealed. Only 42% are happy with that legislation according to a number of polls, not just one.

We're in for a wild and wooly ride! The voters are about to speak.
