    Personally I think the congress is what's more important this go around. The social issues that typically wind up in the scotus are not going to right this ship. Abortion is not in jeopardy in my opinion. The gay agenda is not going to save us from bankruptcy. Social issues need to take a back seat to the real problems we face. And of course nominees go no where without approval from congress.

    The real challenges we face as a nation pertain to fiscal issues and economic ones. That's why I think congress is more important. Granted we need a congress that doesn't spend money like a new lottery winner. Other than the military and the veto pen any president can be kept in check with appropriate congressional oversight.

    What say you?

    No one has an opinion? Am I wrong in my assessment?

    My mistake. It just never dawned on me to add both when I was more interested in who thinks which is more vital to the end result.

    It's cool. I prefer to lay government in the hands of those that understand the importance of preserving Federalism.

    Muh bad.

    I say it's a good poll without the third choice. We must get the asshole Obama out of the White House. He can do more damage by Executive Order and Recess Appointments in four years than we can withstand.

    Putting the Congress in the hands of the Republicans would make the Big 0 work to compromise.

    A little adult supervision would be a good thing.

    Cutting off the finds to the White house might be a good way to limit the size and intrusive tactics of the Fuhrer.

    Harry Reid should be ashamed of himself as should the entire Democratic caucus in the Senate. It is a textbook example on why we need to further perfect the Constitution to make sure this type of shit doesn't happen. So I answered the Poll by saying Congress simply because it is bad government.

    From the political stanpoint, the Presidency is MUCH more important politically. Why? Because the aged SCOUS justices, Obama may get to appoint 2 more; possibly 3. Maybe four if Thomas goes. When the GOP begins it's standard obstruction of the appointments, it will further play into the upcoming narrative of obstruction-at-any cost that Obama is going to hang around the neck of the GOP.
