    Meanwhile, trillions of dollars are being spent by Obama and the Democrats that the country borrows. Yeah, that's going to work. And the Democrats are all putting their heads in the sand on that issue. Talk all you want about Obama and the Democrats getting re-elected, but the debt is the herd of elephants in the room. The American people will sooner or later have to elect people who at least acknowledge the problem with cutting government before cutting individule income to deal with it. Increased taxes won't do it. Take ALL the money from millioniares and billionaires and it won't come close to paying the freight.

    Obama's approval rating over 50%. The economy improving daily. Unemployment down. Stock market at 13,000. GDP is up, Consumer confidence is up. Meanwhile the Circus in the GOP goes on to the amusment of america. They have nothing to run on, so now they are going to make the election about contraceptives. Really? What a joke the GOP has become. They pledged early on, No cooperation, to obstruct, to make Obama fail, thus making america fail. They managed to fool enough voters in 2010 that President Obama had broken his promise of fixing their mess. They claimed it was taking him too long to clean up Bush's mess, even though they wouldnt lift a finger to help. America was decieved. It wont happen again. 2012 will be a landslide for the democrats. America is sick of the obstructionism from the GOP. The GOP wants to take womens, and workers rights back 100 years. Lets do like Newt says and create a base on the moon. Then the GOP can go there and govern. Their policies are out of this world.

    Another problem for the Republicans is their attack against women and women's rights. Given their current position on women's rights issues, I don't understand how any woman would vote for the majority of them. To do so would be to cast a huge vote against women's own best interests. I know some women will be conned into voting against interest, but the majority will not. That will be a big problem for Republican electibility.
