    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Rick Scott, the conservative Republican billionaire who plucked the governor’s job from the party establishment in November with $73 million of his own money and the backing of the Tea Party, vowed during his campaign to run the troubled state like a corporate chief executive (which he was) and not a politician (which he proudly says he is not).

    Buyer Remorse: New Poll: House Republicans doing worse job than the Democrats did | Crooks and Liars

    PPP's newest national poll finds that after a little more than 3 months in charge House Republicans have fallen so far out of favor with the American public that it's entirely possible Democrats could take control of the House back next year.

    What is going to happen in the next election? What will be "party platforms"?

    Oh wait, you didn’t… That shirt does not say Started a war, expanded Afghanistan, expanded Homeland security, divided the country further, ballooned the deficit, bail out rich, lied about ending Iraq war, supported secret prisons and torture and passed the Bush tax cuts.

    It has been like that forever. We vote in the Repubs until we get sick and tired of them. Then we vote in the Dems until we get sick and tired of them. Then we vote in the Repubs...

    We vote against people more than we vote for people. We are afraid to vote for people we really want.

    You were right up to the last "we are afraid to vote for people we really want". The problem is that the other folks, mostly billionaires, can donate large sums to buy influence from the pols and MSM. So its a matter of playing one set of billionaires against the others, aka "divided government".

    How many people voted for McCain because they were afraid that Obama would win or the other way around. There were several third party candidates any of whom would be better than what we have.

    Haven't seen anyone I could vote for in a very long time.

    But the Republican Governors are doing exactly what they have to do. They are cutting spending. They are cutting spending because they understand that they don't have the money to pay for everything. Obamarama and company haven't learned this yet. So yes I can see where people are pissed. Sorry about that shit. We have to stop spending money we don't have at all levels of Government.

    Obama and McCain both looked like four more years of Bush so I voted third party.
