    I am aware many of our political leaders "know" better than us, mere mortals, but more than a few of us do not want a left wing, extremist government. Oh, we are selfish enough to want everything free from government but not if it costs us anything. Pres. Obama needs to get out of the white house and rethink what got him elected. Basically he deserted us as soon as he took the oath.

    @Story about Sarah Palin... What gives her the right to bad mouth the GOP? I am tired of people calling the GOP an "establishment". The GOP is a Political "PARTY"! And why does Sarah Palin call herself a Mama Grizzly? If that is the case then she should be in a zoo and not in Politics! :Sarah, Do you really think that the GOP will join you if you bad mouth and threatening them? I wouldn't! And why would ANYONE join someone who can't comment to something? Here is proof to what I mean...Sarah Palin was inaugurated December 4, 2006, and quit on July 3, 2009–about 18 months... This is very sad Sarah Palin! You can't even go two years in Office, Why should I listen to you now?
