Just weeks before the election the unemployment has grown to a whopping 10.1 percent.

Obama and the democratic led congress are simply…failures.

After all, Republicans have been candid about their desire to go back to the “exact same agenda” Bush and Cheney used to get us into this mess in the first place.

It is curious, though, why the White House didn’t embrace this sooner. Maybe the line took on new urgency when Republicans started talking up their intentions to return to Bush-era policies more earnestly, but it seems overdue.

Bush for a surprise by insulting him. Does Minnesota need Bachmann? Minnesota is a wonderful place to visit, especially in the past when I had never heard of Michele Bachmann. Michele might be misplaced. She has some marbles missing. But I can’t fault her for the Minnesota voter.

Why would you want Michele Bachmann to represent you? The GOP avoids her. Republicans across the nation hate being associated with her. Ever since Sarah Palin hit the scene, Bachmann has been shadowing Sarah, wearing her hair like Sarah Palin, because she has no sense of self. She is always trying to re-define herself?

How does this insecurity represent Minnesota?

I researched her for a few chapters on my book when I was writing about Sarah Palin and honestly, Michele Bachmann is embarrassing. Furthermore, that is not coming from me, but the interviews I have done with Republicans. The GOP wants Michele Bachmann to walk away. She has damaged too many leaders in the party already and she doesn’t care – Or know when – to quit lying, making false statements, and bringing dark attention to the party.

If Michele weren’t in office representing Minnesota, I would pity her, but instead my worry hangs on the undecided voters in Minnesota who are too busy to drive to the polls.

But there is still 1 adult left standing and his stature rises everyday he says nothing. And thats George Bush – who apparently has a much thicker and more principled skin than Obama. Once again his class shows thru by not getting involved with the Ego-in-Chief. Thanks Mr. Bush for once again demonstrating what a real president acts like

Perhaps someone should send him a memo.

Yeah, sure O’blame-a, its all Bush’s fault. What the incompetents in the White House right now havent figured out is that the voters are FED-UP with the “blame game” B.S. ……

You just can’t do it,”. The writer should have ask for a Republican response; instead the writer sounded pretty much like a Republican mouthpiece.

Because of their cowardly refusal to deal with this issue we will continue with our high unemployment rates a little longer. We need people with courage leading our country, and they certainly don’t seem to have it. They don’t deserve to be the majority party.
