    This morning, on Morning Joe, there was some Tea Party guy who had written a book about “Taking back America”.

    Joe Scarborough wanted so bad to like this guys message he just couldn’t bring himself to question the guy. Not until Dillon Radigon started talking to him.

    They were talking about the fact that GM and other companies who borrowed money from the government were paying it back and the US stood to make billions from these loans. This guy was saying that “there should never be ‘too big to fail’.” OK, I have no problem with that.

    Then Dillon pointed out that GM employs tens of thousands of people, another 300,000 are directly impacted by those jobs and maybe another couple of million are impacted by those jobs. The guy said, “So?”

    Dillon said to bring this much ruin, you might as well “tear down the country”. They TP guy said, “Some times you have to tear things down completely and start over”.

    Then, they asked this same guy who wants to “tear down this country” if Obama was a racist. He said, “Well, ummm, uh, I don’t THINK he is”.

    Then they asked this same guy if Obama “hated” America. The guy said, “Well, yes and no”.

    Let me make sure I have this straight. They are asking a guy who just said he wanted to “tear down” this country and start over if Obama, who he just admitted saved possibly millions of jobs and brought billions in profit to the US, “loved” this country, a country he wants to “tear down”.

    The guy said he wanted to “tear it down”. Is that “love”? And why is he the expert on Obama? Because he is a Tea Party Republican who is patriotic and white?

    Remember, this is on MSNBC. A station that right wingers say is totally left, yet they give this guy a platform that was mostly unchallenged.

    All I can say is, “Tomorrow is the DAY”. The day Republicans say they will present their “policies” to bring back jobs and “save” the economy.

    Tomorrow the THE day. They knew how to break it. Let's see if they know how to fix it.

    Republicans probably will take both houses. Americans are angry that they didn't fix the Republicans disasters fast enough. They will punish the Democrats, not for making the mess, but for not fixing it as quickly as they should. They want to teach the Democrats a lesson, unfortunately, it's the American people who will learn this bitter lesson.

    As long as you start over with the Constitution being your guide,i don't have a problem with that. Both political parties have completely lost their way when it comes to adhering to our Constitution. It has become a matter of convenience for them at this point. They boast about our Constitution only when it can be used to advance their own personal agendas. Most in both parties could care less about our Constitution. It's all about Social-Engineering & Corporatism. The Constitution only gets in their way. So tearing it all down and starting over sounds like a pretty good idea to me. As long as the Constitution is used as the blueprint.

    The Government is making "billions" on its GM "investment"?

    When the fuck did that happen?

    You know, Progressive can no longer lie and get away with it, right?

    Obama took an economy that was creeping out of recession and ran it into the dirt.

    If you want to bring Western Civilization to a screeching halt, throw it in (P) for Progressive

    The US was losing 750,000 jobs a month. The Dow was at 6,000.

    Could you be more ignorant?

    Poor rdrool, still struggling with the concept of 'individual thought'.
