    RE: Milt. Absolutely it was fear. When the Speaker of the House of Representatives is talking about the biggest piece of legislation in decades and she makes the statement, "We need to pass the bill to find out what's in it" you bet there is fear. That's common sense. Wise up and take a look at the people running your party.

    You clearly don't know history at all. Please go do your research and then come back and comment.

    Unrest? OR was it fear?

    I think that Glenn Beck's "Keep Fear Alive" gatherings and musings along with a chorus of pied pipers of mediaville (fox news, all talk radio, Rush Limbaugh...) Kepp stirring up the pot of fear... no reality t discuss much no real plan for real change of improvement ... just fear; and that is enough to sway the population to your side. Now the republicans can get back to "eliminating all the evil regulations" gee if only we were to loosen the rules for the bankers and hedge funds managers MORE they would invest in the main street economy and creat some real jobs!! right?!!

    @Patriot: You must have watched a totally different press conference from what I watched. And when you talk about the American people, you only talk for a small majority. A lot of these races were close to 50/50. That's only half of the American people. And lest we forget that outside groups spent $250 million, led by Carl Rove, to get republicans elected. They spent about republicans spent $54 million more than democrats. Add it up. That's a lot of wasted money. I've said this before: Politicians don't care about the middle class, but you can go on believing that fairytale. But I'll sit back and see what the republicans now do for you.

    So Matheson did not equal Pelosee. As for Pres. Obama, he doesn't legislate, the House does, so let's see what the republicans can do with their ideas. They've had since 1980 to do things and only in the last 4 years have the democrats had a chance to fix it. I guess they couldn't undo 26 years of failure so quickly. I for one am going to be watching the GOP really closely because I don't think they are going to change anything and just go backwards again and get us further in the hole.

    if Obama's press confrence today is any indication of whether he will move to the middle - FORGET IT!!! CLUELESS and ARROGANT as ever as expected. The American people finally had their say and poor Barack can't take the rejection. The man has to go!!!
