    No wonder his "jobs bill" hasn't been introduced by any democrats yet. They are desperate to distance themselves from him and his policies. Have they finally realized how much damage he is doing or are they just in self preservation mode waiting for things to somehow miraculously turn around.

    Don't bet the House on Democrats - Dan Hirschhorn - POLITICO.com

    Snip-

    “I’m glad the election’s not today,” said Democratic pollster Keith Frederick, a veteran of House races. “Every poll shows independents losing their patience for the president. These House elections tend to get nationalized, and there’s no doubt right now that as a referendum on Barack Obama, House Democrats lose.”

    “It’s going to be a really tough battle,” Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) told POLITICO. “Democrats are all going to have to distinguish themselves from the president.”

    Non-issue. The election is a year away. Once voters are reminded that it was the GOP that voted to dissolve Medicare and it was the TP obstruction that lead to the credit downgrade, I think voters will change their minds.

    Yeah... mkay... they'll surely look at the worthless $, credit downgrade, $15,000,000,000,000 of debt, inflation, high energy prices, 9.2% unemployment, record numbers on welfare and food stamps, three wars, Obamacare including slashes to Medicare, tax hikes, etc. and definitely vote "four more years".

    Better start making your farewells now...

    I think half of what you wrote is true and applicable. Maybe. What's funny is some of what you wrote is actually beneficial!

    Just when the economy was starting to really recover the Republicans pulled the debt ceiling stunt.

    They fucked us all yet again just to try and hurt Obamas re election chances.

    This will be driven home and not forgotten.

    You dont reward the people who crashed the world economy and then crashed the recovery by giving them control

    It's not hard as a voter, if you did not want the Obamacare bill or the massive stimulus and your representative voted for it, vote against them. It should not matter if they are distancing themselves from him now or not, the bottom line is they stood by him during these monstrosities, and should be held accountable for it.

    Is that the excuse they give you to keep you interested in them? Because if you actually believe what you just said it speaks volumes for your intellect. A blind person understands what's going on and they cant see it for themselves. You?...you just keep drinking the koolaid and believe what the huffington post tells you to believe.
