"THE SPARK OF 08?"...well, that fizzeled out about 3 years ago. One of the wire services is already reporting that 1 California delagate has been sent home after a drunken brawl that left 1 in the hospital. the bar scene in the Star Wars movie may best describe those in attendence.

I voted for Obama in 2008......I WILL NOT make that mistake again. I fell for the scam of hope and change. Obama has failed terribly!

Obama is killing small business! He keeps blaming Bush......why did he run for president if he wasnt planning on making the hope and change he promised? You can only blame the other side so long before we expect you to take responsibility for the job you applied for!

re: jpcooperSep. 3, 1210:26 PM Another year without a budget and another $1.3 Trillion in debt will 'spark" an American uprising against Obama and his merry band of socialistds.... Lets talk specifics about Obama's socialistic ways. Please describe just one example of Obama being socialist. Just one.

"Why did he run for president if he wasnt planning on making the hope and change he promised?" .... because he expected Congress to do their job. Instead Republican party filibustered over 350 times since 2007 = a new record. After nearly destroying this country from 2001 to 2009 that is the GOP's solution to the country's problems?

Hope we'll be hearing some of Robme's warm and fuzzy quotes over and over that really endear voters to him like: "Corporations are people, my friend", "I'm not concerned about the very poor", "I love being able to fire people who provide services to me.", "Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs", "No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate", and the inspired: "I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that's the America millions of Americans believe in. That's the America I love."

We have all been through an unimaginable period in which one party has relentlessly blocked nearly every effort to correct a failing economy. I think neither Obama nor most of his base could predict all-out obstructionism or the full depth of the recession. Both of these "conditions" lead to a more stubborn unemployment rate and the most unpopular Congress in history. Obama's been steeled by the fire of such recalcitrance now and the rest of us are left incredulous about the depths to which the GOP has gone to halt progress and recovery. Our eyes are now wide open and we know what a clear & present danger this party truly is.
