Amen to number 29...a person who migrated from another country knows the U.S. is STILL the best place to be..and yet these two "pundits" like to joke about tearing it apart...I have an idea...RUN FOR OFFICE or just shut it.
Now...run along back to your cable shows...you've accomplished nothing today.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Leave it to someone who immigrated here to put it all into perspective while weeding out the double-talking b.s. by the others. There are many reasons to criticize this country. For every one there are even MORE to admire. I'm reminded of Michelle Malkin who is a second-generation Phillipino & is a successful author & political commentator. You can wallow in the negative or hit the ground running with the positive, & if it doesn't suit you, show up at the voting booth, plain & simple. That's what you did in '08 right? That's the only thing that matters. Posting on threads like this only serve to get sensible ideas lost in the tangle of posts by people who can't even put a coherent sentence together with proper spelling, grammar, & punctuation. And I was a product of the same public school system they were, also without the benefit of college education. Imagine that!

Someone tell me where you got the info that Bush/Cheney were responsible for Fannie/Freddie? If you follow the money, it leads back to Bawney Fwank. Do you have other info?

They should stick to comedy and not politics. They are part of the problem in this government controlled media. We the people are going to take back our country and not the celebrities. Unfortunately, they still don't get it - part of the ego thing!!

I am finding some of these posts quite entertaining especially the ones blaming Fannie and Freddie on Bush and Cheney.......hysterical. Once again the dumocrats are rewriting history and they believe everyone will believe every little word that Obama reads from his teleprompter. I love how the little college kiddies eat up his big bad wall street rhetoric when their dear sweet Obama accepted the most cash from Goldman Sachs. If you belong to a union or work for the government then Obama and the democrats are your people bought and paid for by the unions and Georgie Soros! If you are someone like me who just got laid off along with her department, who works in the private sector that gets taxed to the max to pay for all of the unions that support Obama then you are SCREWED BIG TIME!!!!!!!!

Everything is fine well and good as long as YOUR job, YOUR career is not the one that someone else targets. The jobs everyone likes to say NO ONE WANTS were at one point filled by a legal american. Constuction is where we are being hit hard. I am not in the union, do not wish to be!!! Work done at a price that should be able to be afforded by the purcharsee and the worker paid a living wage. Illegals live in a way NO ONE WANTS to address. Do you want to live in shifts in an apartment meant for 1 person, when 10 people live there, and the money earned is sent to another country, where they return and live like KINGS after 10 years in this country. The illegals do not, for now, hit people who make large sums of money, LIKE stewartand colbert, YET!!! They do not want to live the American dream, they want our money and our stupidity. We give it to them. Those who want the American dream do all those things in the proper way to achieve it.... Those of us, not in the union, not with media jobs or born into money, who live and work everyday make ends meet. Work or compete with illegals do not feel sorrow for them only wish they would do what we do the way, more importantly, for the living wage we do it for. But, a big splash and the thought that I am not a compasionate person or I am elite. This is said and I live a very simple life, raising my children. But, I suppose since I did not go to college and recieve my degree, I got pregnant, I do believe in abortion. I do not have that perfect job and my husband does not either. We chose the baby, shame on us....We live to eat, eat to live and compete with people who do not live like AMERICANS. Rise to our standards do not bring us to the standards of mexico.

In the last ten years I've watched Congress slowly turn into highbrow Jerry Springer opera, as we've strangely come to value our politicians being 'just like me' instead of demanding they be more educated, more worldly, and more experienced than the average American who never leaves the country, speaks only one language, and still thinks America is economically and morally superior to the rest of the world.

I joined the Republican party long before it was co-opted by the Christian right, and partly that was because I believe we need elected leaders who are better-educated, more experienced in governing, and more worldy than the average citizen. Today we glorify the ignorance of the 'everyman' and send him or her to represent us.

The founding fathers of this country were not 'everymen' - they were intellectuals, wealthy landowners with a good head for business, well-travelled, fluent in multiple languages, and well-versed in political science and history. They would be appalled at the legislators we elect today - and the fact that 20% of registered voters elect our government.

Shame on us for squandering a magnificent opportunity.
