    Yeah, and Bob Bennet, Republican and outgoing Utah Senator, was still trying to whip up GOP support.

    An early tea party casualty who did not win his own primary.

    Good riddance.

    People were saying that about the Republican Party in 2008. That it was dead and gone forever. BUT there is a huge difference between the GOP of 2008, and Dems of 2010. It's ANGER vs FEAR.

    In 2008, the country was ANGRY at the GOP. The GOP had 8 years, and made a ton of mistakes. 9-11 was a kick in the gut. And our reaction, while noble in intent, did get clustered. Combined with the housing collapse, and open borders, Americans were showing ANGER at the GOP in voting them out.

    But now, in 2010, the country is showing FEAR at the Democrat Party. Americans are truly scared and creeped out by the socialist/communist leanings of this government. They have woken up to history, and read about regimes like that of the USSR, and of people like Lenin, Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Che, Castro, Chavez, etc, etc, and realized just how many Dem's sympathize with the political ideals of these men. And it has people scared to death. THEN you combine those suspicions with actual action, the Dems trying to takeover healthcare, and flirting with outright socialist/communist legislation..........people are voting now out of FEAR.


    And thats the big difference. People get over ANGER. But rarely do they forget FEAR. To simplify it, a wife will get over a husband she is angry at. But once the wife begins to fear that husband......it rarely recovers and once she leaves, rarely returns to a man she feared.

    Well, 5, 10, 15 years from now, voters will likely not forget how much FEAR this far left regime has put into it's citizens. But........well, we've already forgiven the anger we had at the GOP!!

    The republican base just spent nigh onto 3 billion dollars on negative campaign ads that enabled and promoted that fear.

    What else did you expect?

    I agree, practice what they preach. That goes for you RON PAUL, who is surprisingly a porker!

    Can the King of all Porker REPUBLICAN, Thad Cockring, cut out the pork? Year in and out this porker is always way at the top. If all the members in Congress spent like this crook, then earmarks would be in the $30-$40 billion range!

    It's bad enough that earmarks are a phoney symbolic budget issue, let alone that they can't even give them up;

    who seriously thinks the Republican Congress will balance the budget?

    ANYONE?

    I've always said that the Democrats are great at bitchin & whining while being the Minority Party but are absolutely awful at Governing and leading. They should always be the Minority Party. They cannot Govern. A one page CR will fix this Dem debacle for now. The Republicans can permanently fix this starting in January.
