    OMG This is SO awesome!! If this is an indicater of 2010, then the Democrats are in big trouble. Bart was not a weak, scandal plagued politician. He won last year in a heavily red district with 74% of the vote.

    I expect he doesn't want a repeat of the "warm" (read Hellish) reception he had over the summer out on the stump. :lol:

    I do think that Bart was surprised that he couldn't schmooze the audience at the town hall meetings with his normal folksy anecdotes. He tried all of his "my mama was a teacher here" and "my cousin down the street" stories and got shut down in a hurry. I think it really hit him that the voters were not willing to give him a pass for voting for a massive spending bill that he didn't read. As he pointed out, his mom was a teacher. I'm pretty sure she would have made certain that her boy could read.

    Yeah, so awesome indeed that a party that spent like drunken sailors for 6 years and took away some of our civil liberties, and also helped bring this country to financial ruin may in fact take power again.

    Damn Americans have short memory. :eusa_eh:

    You seemed to miss where I called out my increasing dislike of Obama for voting for FISA. I've said several times that Obama acts like a Republican. And no, Dems are spending the money on things that the Republicans should of spent it on but put aside.

    However, it can not be denied that the party that is suppose to be full of "Fiscal Conservatives" spent like drunken sailors the entire time in power and took away civil liberties in the name of freedom. I point to what Mr. Ben Franklin said about that, let's see if you remember what you learned in history class.
