    So did Congress', so it's a wash.

    Yeah, but congress' reputation is never good. OTOH, Obama can't function if he isn't being hailed as a messianic figure. If the public figures out just how incompetent he and his administration are, he's going to end up setting the stage for a Republican revival of epic proportions.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Yes. If we can just route the moderate 'ruling class' repukes and get conservatives elected. That would be SOMETHING!!!

    Yeah but we all know that the Republicans are more than capable of screwing this up. The 2012 election should have shown us that. The White House was ripe for the taking, even with Romney as a candidate, but the Republicans refused to take advantage of certain aspects of the campaign. Benghazi alone should have been Obama's Waterloo.

    The Bush and McCain advisors will be the end of the republican party. They infect everything. Where is the democrats McCain? Where are the democrats that trash their own party?

    Establishment GOPers assail tea party on shutdown

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- From county chairmen to national party luminaries, veteran Republicans across the country are accusing tea party lawmakers of staining the GOP with their refusal to bend in the budget impasse in Washington.

    The Republican establishment also is signaling a willingness to strike back at the tea party in next fall's elections. >>>

    The anger emanating from Republicans like Sununu and Barbour comes just three years after the GOP embraced the insurgent political group and rode its wave of new energy to return to power in the House. >>>

    In South Carolina, Fairfield County Republican Chairman Kevin Thomas is among those on the side of tea party lawmakers.

    "The only leverage we have is the budget," he said.

    Everybody hates congress. But during elections you rarely see much turnover. People have a difficult time blaming their own representative.
