I heard a number of mainstream media reports that only about 15% of people now
trust the federal government. Yet the same media don't ask people why. We voted for Bush II and his Congress, were so disgusted with them that
we even tried B. Obama. Now we are more disgusted and are looking for someone
else. We also fired most of the Congress (those who were up for re-election). A
third party is very likely, if not by 2012 then by the following predidential
To "Pagan | 1:10 p.m." I not sure if you are joking around, or if you
are serious. So, 10 sources show that WMD's were in fact found in Iraq, and you
still are asking "Where, are the WMD's?"To think, I always
thought that liberals accepted the truth, no matter what the source. Including
a source that is 1 year old.So tell us, what would it take to
convince you that one of your ideas is wrong.
Obama spent his first two years compromising and all it got him was almost 0 GOP
votes on anything, several bills sponsored by GOP senators getting voted down by
the sponsors of the bill once Obama agreed that it was a good idea
(pay-as-you-go legislation was one of them), and dissatisfaction from his base.
So now he's ditched that and is trying the new tactic of not dealing with the
GOP nonsense anymore with the jobs bill. Now the public knows that the GOP
filibustered a bill that is supported by the majority of the public, that would
RedShirt | 12:19 p.m. Oct. 31, 2011, Only x4 of the 10 stories you
cite are AFTER 2004. Which, actually then supports the UN's report
in 2005, AFTER 2004 that there were zero WMD's in Iraq. As for
giving credit for George W. Bush 'getting' the US out of Iraq, more than x3
years AFTER his final term... *'Osama bin Laden Killed: 'Justice Is

other posters have cited, that you lack any... credibility. Good day to you Redshirt. It's 2011. Where, are the

NOT think voters trust goverment.
Governments depend on power. Power corrupts thosw who wield it. Never trust a
government of any kind.Keep their feet to the the fire and keep them
worried. Then, just maybe we will got a good result.
Republicans are those that believe government can't do anything right and get
elected to prove it again.
By todays GOP standards, Reagan was a Moderate Liberal.So, OK,
compared to Reagan, Obama is an extreme liberal. And so was Bush.FYI, Fox news does not make you an informed voter.
Joe Blow: What planet have you been on? It is you who needs to be enforced. My
goodness....Obama is an extreme leftist, or have you not read what he has
written, noticed who he associates with, or heard his quotes? Amazing.
extreme left ideologyOne is not informed if they believe that Obama
is extremely left.But is sounds good.
Might ask the OWS and the majority of the citizens in this country who agree
with them. Not only do citizens distrust government, the "virus" has
spread to distrust of banking/bankers, financial institutions/ advisors,
mortgage companies/real estate. This "virus" is spreading and will
envelop more and more of this nation should the middle class continue it's fall
into the abyss.
The tea party does not trust anyone except the mythical past.
Do voters trust government? At first I thought this was a rhetorical question.
Of course they do not. The aricle made that clear. As far as Obama becoming
conciliatory...forget it. His extreme left ideology is more important to him
than rebuilding trust or ending his class warfare. Destroying, or
"fundamentally transforming" America, is what drives him and he would
rather bring down capitalism and do his rabble rousing community organizing on
the national level than be re-elected while doing as much damage as possible
during one term.
