Fix the problems? Not going to happen. He is in over his head with this job and so are those working with him. Amateurs abound! Eight years way too many for this man.

You know what's an albatross? Creating even more obstacles for people to make money and profits and raise taxes and passing laws that no one wants. Now, they are doing the same things they campaigned AGAINST the whole time. Hang that around their neck and punch them in the gut.

'Why didn't this administration fix all the Country's problems during Obama's first two year in office when he had the house and senate to himself?'

This may be the funniest statement on any post this year. Those 2 years we were in the greatest recession since the great depression and Obama was supposed to fix ALL THE PROBLEMS in those 2 years. Really????

This "tea party" ought to register officially as a separate third party on the ticket.The republican party either wants to distance themselves to avoid responsibility from what the tea party says or they can get totally behind them This has gone on too long.Do all republicans agree with these people or not? Why are they content with being out on the fringes?Why do we have to listen to them when they are not a legitimate political party?

C'mon Al. You REALLY don't believe what you wrote here do you? One simple question: Why didn't this administration fix all the Country's problems during Obama's first two year in office when he had the house and senate to himself?

The Tea Party's my way or the highway attitude has ruined Washington's ability to compromise for the good of all Americans. If they shutdown the government in October over the budget, you will see a Democratic landslide in the 2014 elections. People are sick and tired of all them Tea Party members in Washington who can only vote one way - NO. The biggest mistake ever made by the Republicans was aligning themselves with the Tea Party.
