    How long do you think it is going to take to unwind this mess the liberals in DC have created since they took over in 2006?
    From Ocare to the EPA the damage is broad. Can it be done in one term?

    Additionally do you think the GOP will try to abolish or defund the EPA or any other regulatory entity?

    The poll doesn't have the answer I would have selected.

    It is not the republicains that are going to fix it. Those republicians in high offices are (to me) no different then the democrats when it comes to spending controls. They were patting themselves on the back during the last debt ceiling impass for getting 500B cut from the budget ... Don't they know how deep the debt and spending problem is? I believe they do and are unwilling to do the dirty work that needs to be done, namely sharp and deep cuts across the board, including defense, welfare, education and medical benifits.

    If anything is going to be done about Washingtons spending problems, it's going to take a majority of tea party candidates to make it happen. There simply aren't enough of us right now to pass the laws that need to be passed (balanced budget amendment for example). The tea party will win a lot of seats coming up, but in that mass of seats will be those that just talk the talk.

    I believe this coming election with stop obamacare and move the cliff a little further away, but without spending cuts and restraints, we will still be headed toward the cliff.

    I think the local elections after the next presedent is sworn in may give enough votes and incentive to get what needs to be done done.

    I have faith that the American people understand that there is no healthcare, no pensions, no defense if we get to the point that greece is at and begin talking about defaulting ... We know we can't continue down the path of free spending, the math simply will not allow it, no matter which partys math you use. The one constant is that government spending must be brought under control

    No and neither could Obama have undone the damage done by previous administrations for the last 3 decades. Even if he had tried by the proper steps which he did not. He took the more of the same approach.

    We've had nearly 100 years of progressive policies... and have created generations of the moocher class... it's going to be hard to unwind the damage done, I don't care who it is.

    What about the damage from Bush and the Republicans? You seem to have missed that.

    Just blame Bush -

    Obama is totally not responsible for anything over the last three years.

    Sarcasm off.

    Obama certainly hasn't.

    That's been his campaign slogan since day one.

    When's he going to "lead" and assume some responsibility?

    When are you going to get your nose out of his ass?

    As long as casting blame is more important then fixing the problem, nothing will ever get done
