    Re: LDS Liberal

    Actually, the number of Democrat Senators in States that gave Romney a 10 point plus win are in jeopardy more than you might think. No guarantees of course, but it is likely that the Republicans pick up some seats in the Senate.

    Lame Duck President?

    I suppose IF the GOP maintains their slim margin in the House.
    I suppose IF the GOP changes the laws of the Universe and manages to win iver the Senate.

    Charlie banders to the extreme right-wing who will listen to him no matter out of touch with reality or disconnected with it he is.

    let us all hope that "dead in the water" results in sinking to the bottom for good. Any containment of this incompetent socialist is celebrated.

    How can anyone cheer the Commander-in-chief given all the trillions he has squandered. So all Dems love to bash GWB. Obama is far worse than GWB and so many simply love being lied to. Bankruptcy is merely one heartbeat away for the U.S.A.

    Interesting to see the Obama supporters really worried that in fact Obama may well be on his way out, much like Bush was in his 2nd term.

    Charles fills his role as the predictable republican pundit rather well.

    Kudos to one who failed in the vocation he was trained to perform only to resurface as the spokesperson/face of republican propaganda.

    Funny how chuck can't write anything positive about Obama while he could never write anything negative on Bush. Even today he continues to rationalize For Bush's idiotic decisions. This article summarized:

    I hate Obama bla bla bla political cheap shots bla bla bla I hate Obama bla bla bla.

    Better to get nothing done, than to hasten the liberal agenda to US bankruptcy!

    If it looks like a lame duck, walks like a lame duck, quacks like...

    You get the idea.

    As expected another bitter regurgitation from Krauthammer! I guess one must give him a little slack for his bitterness, he was counting on McConnell to live up to his "one term" for Obama statement, now only to have to live with another four years and looking at a probable eight for Clinton. Sixteen years with a Dem. in the white house has to be hades here on earth for the Chuckster!

    To be fair, it might be a little early to call President Obama a lame duck, for better or for worse. It also might might be true to be fair to Krauthammer. Only time will tell...

    "naturally inclined to believe in his own loftiness...". That certainly sounds a superb description of Charles Krauthammer to me. The fact that it also applies to every president in my lifetime, with the possible exceptions of Ford and Carter, shows it to be hollow and irrelevant.

    George, I think you meant to say "politician" instead of "pollution." But either way, you're right about too many of them.

    A pollution is going to say what he thinks we want to hear. the news will do the same. Its got to, trust and confidence has been lost.
