    No, the chairman of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs committee Christopher Dodd [D, CT].
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    Letís just cut the crap and call this situation for what it is: Too many Washington families were sending their kids to Harvard on the profits made from this pig-a-thon, on both sides of the isle. Letís get real - just this one time.

    Don't get me wrong I'd love to beat the snot out some Republicans over this, but at the end of the day, President Bush or McCain could have pushed for more action however they didn't. But it doesn't make it their fault.

    If a Republican doest some thing wrong we generally as a party boot their ass, Libs on the other hand...

    Point taken: which, for me anyway - is the only way Obama will snake his way into the White House.

    Help me out here kids. Iím not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and like a puppy - may need my nose put right in it, but didnít the Republican Party hold majorities in both Houses until 2007? Hello?


    In case you forget, the Republicans held a THIN majority and unlike the Dems - who like robots, vote in unison on many issues, the Republicans have a lot of freedom on the way they vote. In the case of the RINOS, they vote with the Dems a majority of the time.


    The republicans have NEVER had a working control of the house under President Bush. The Dems have held the President's agenda hostage - this is yet one more example.

    Rubber stamp congress my ass.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    The Dems keep saying the congress has rubber stamped the Bush agenda, yet on nearly EVERY issue that has gone wrong, it seems there was a plan to fix the issues and it was BLOCKED by the Dems.

    That screams weakness. "We can't win enough seats and politicians don't respect our president!"
