I consider myself an independent as well, but I do not agree with everything Mr. Gray has put forth. While I do get distressed at all the Obama bashing and complete disrespect for the office of the President, its not anything new to this country. I do think the Obama administration shares the some blame for the problems this country is in, but he is not the sole culprit as the Tea Party and other Republicans would have you believe. Who takes the responsibility in the House since the last elections? The Democratic minority? The Republican's who cannot even get a consensus among it's own party? How about the Senate? The point is there is plenty of blame to go around. As an independent I see the Republican party's totally focused on hating of Obama and unseating him to the point of destroying the country to do it. I see the Democrats as a bunch of spineless whiners who need to get off their butts and balance things out. God didn't put us into this mess...and from my point of view he isn't going to get us out of it either. People need to grow up and realize this isn't the 18th Century, if this country is going to survive we have to do it by growing and adapting, not taking steps back. The world is more than just white people who have devoted themselves to one religion and one way of life.
That's because most of average folks don't identify with her or her politics. She wants the votes of angry, white, Americans with money. But as she is finding out, it is not going to be enough to keep the campaign afloat. As Dusty said earlier, it is circling the drain. Besides the Republican powers that be aren't totally stupid, they know she has no electability on the national stage, so rats are deserting the ship. She might last to the first primary.
Read and Compare the points in the jobs bill with the policies the Republicans have proposed in the past. You will notice at least 75% of the bill are points that the Republicans came up with. Hence, why a good portion of Democrats hate it. The only thing unacceptable in the bill is that Obama presented it. The Republicans have focused on hating Obama so much, that they have lost site of the forest for the trees.
This editorial/ranting is a perfect example of why Church and State needs to be separate.
In the whole scheme of the Presidential race, no one cares about Bachmann. She has become a footnote in the 2012 election. All people wait for now is what outrageous thing is going to come out of her mouth...or how her husband is accused of being gay.
