    when even Peggy Noonan makes it clear she's had it, it's over. She has implied her loss of faith in GW for awhile now, Jan. 2005 does sound about right:

    The only problem is that you seem to be unable to realise Reagan was the same thing as theses guys.

    Tax cuts do not fix the problem of our deficit by themselfs.

    Do you really think that Bush 41 was the whole reason this philosophy failed because he was talked into a little fiscal responsiblity?

    The facts are obvious to anyone who wants to see them ,Dems are the more fiscal party.

    When our elected representatives stop listening, that's a big problem.

    They are sent there to represent us and when they stop doing that they need to be heaved off the ship.

    Peggy Noonan has always been a very smart and perceptive gal who could turn a phrase with the best of them... this little piece is no exception.

    and avatar....I wonder how a party that is so united as you claim the GOP is, could have nominated the slate they did in '06? How do you explain the thumping you took at the hands of a broad based slate of mostly moderate democrats?

    I'm thinking that if the GOP could re-animate the mortal remains of Ronald Reagan, they would cheerfully do so.

    listen to who...YOU?

    100 million or so average everyday Americans?

    come on Kathianne, wake up. If you don't sit on the board of a multi-national corporation, or carry a card of a national lobbying group like AIPAC for example, you have no voice to Congress.

    I think that has been made abundantly clear since the Dem's took power in Jan. More than 70&#37; of the people in this country want us to leave Iraq, and that's why Americans voted DEM in November, but congress gives Bush more money.

    A definite majority of Americans want Bush and Cheney impeached, but impeachment remains "off the table".

    Things will never get any better in this country if the people continue to argue left/right, dem/repub, lib/con.

    That's exactly how they want it.
