    Its supposed to be a bad year for incumbents. Its about time we got rid of the whores and put in someone who can run the country like its supposed to be run.

    Yep--even the dinasore Republicans are quite nervous. We saw Crist in Florida--that was a supposedly "shoe-in" for senate (who has now turned to independent) because he was getting rear kicked in the primary. John McCain looks to be in trouble in Arizona--so I suspect he's out in the primary. It's going on all over the country.

    We want "conseratives"--not a bunch of whimpy so-called "moderate" "Republicans" who might as well be called "Democrats."

    Just coming in a little while ago, Bob Bennett is out in Utah. Despite last ditch campaigning, Bennett was shocked that the toxic mood of his state's electorate towards the establishment. It could be his vote FOR the bailout is what ultimately spelled his doom.

    Newsmax - Sen. Bob Bennett Ousted at Utah GOP Convention

    This backlash took out a rather conservative senator for supporting such an unpopular chunk of legislation like the bailout. No incumbent should consider themselves safe anymore.

    Anyone who is in favor of Cutting outrageous Spending.

    Anyone who is in favor of reducing the size of Gov.

    And of course anyone who isn't a Neo-Con.

    DITTO--The tea party movement in this country has encumbant Republicans shaking in their boots too. John McCain in trouble in Arizona--Crist a certain shoe-in for senate in Florida--out of personal political ambition had to go Independent--because he was so far behind his republican opponent.

    This is going on all over the country.

    You gotta love it. Can you imagine the extreme white wing having debates with moderate Democrats?

    Teabagger: Boyking, Obama, a “boy” who is an empty suit, a racist, terrorist, child molester, Marxist, Kenyan, watermelon eating, totalitarian, Socialist, drug addicted, gay, Nazi, black, Muslim, Communist, illegal Alien who wants to kill your grandmother and is the "anti Christ"?

    The Sane: No, he's the president.

    Teabagger: Keep government away from my Healthcare.

    The Sane: How much do you pay for Healthcare.

    Teabagger: I get Medicare and Medicaid. Keep government away from my Medicare and Medicaid.

    The Sane: Medicare and Medicaid are government programs.

    Teabagger: Obama is trying to take away my gun rights.

    The Sane: Obama signed a bill into law that expanded your gun rights.

    Teabagger: I want government to give me a job.

    The Sane: I thought you didn't want government's help.

    Teabagger: You socialist. You hate this country.

    Again--we witness the supposed superior intelligence of a LIBERAL--who does not seem to understand that if we keep up this massive government spending--we are going to look like GREECE in the very near future.

    Right now every single household in this country OWES the federal government 100K. By 2020 it is expected to be 170K. If you're a student just entering the work force you owe 120K in INTEREST alone on the national debt--if you're 38 you will be pay $140K in INTEREST alone on the national debt.

    Upps forgot. FACTS don't matter to liberals.

    No one can BORROW and SPEND their way to PROSPERITY.
