  1. When will said at 11:18 am on October 4th, 2014:

    we ever learn and get past those awful Clintons ? Am fervently hoping that she will be busy babysitting her new grandchild, rocking in her rocking chair,and be felt to be so “last century,” by the time the primaries start: am sick of their ignorant and false “war on women,” am sick of her cover- ups and lies, am looking for a new, strong, decent and gutsy Conservative, to start to get us out of this disastrous mess we’re in! Go away, Hillary-just go away,and enjoy your hundred million dollars you people have extracted from your “causes!”

    @when will….Bill Clinton likely could have won a third term (66% favorability rating when he left office) and is still viewed very positively by the American people with a 64% favorable rating which is the highest among living Presidents.

    While its a long way away from November of 2016, Mrs. Clinton is obviously viewed very positively my the majority of the American people.

    @Doesn’t you must have miss the poll that has 72% of Americans disapproval of Republicans in congress. l

  5. And, said at 4:35 pm on October 6th, 2014:

    more than 80% of Americans disapprove of ALL of Congress: this doesn’t stop many of them from voting again and again, for the familiar name of their OWN person!..which contributes to the deadlocks, and some 85% of incumbents from both parties getting back in, again and again!..(a la Frankie P. and many others)..what they say, and how they wind up voting, is the main difference!

  6. Bob English said at 9:11 am on October 8th, 2014:

    Part of the problem with Congress (blame goes to both sides) is that the districts have become so gerrymandered that races are not competitive and the incumbents have no reason to compromise a bit with the other side in order to get something positive done.

    California might have the right idea where in the general election it can be D versus another D or and R versus another R
