    Our politics are severely broken yet repairable with leadership. Watching the speaker last night was sickening, his facial expressions told of a man with absolutely no clue of anything, he barely even clapped for Repugnatant ideas he is simply an out of place lounge lizard waiting for a drink!!! Now that Roger lady is something else while touting her family, she has a Down syndrome kid also??? Is this a republican thing or is she jealous of Palin??? Seems to me there are some serious genetic challenges in the party!!! Just an observation my bad!!!

    The republicans are doing everything they can to see that progress is not made on anything. They are against everything. The GOP response to the SOTU was pathetic. A woman talking about her life which no one is interested in, she is in congress to work so why don't they get to it.

    Obama and his handlers staying up nights trying to keep Late Night Comedians from giving real State of the Union!

    We can't have a functioning government when we keep electing people that refuse to work with one another. The left is bigoted against the right, and the right is bigoted against the left. We need practical people who will work out their differences like adults, not like the children these politicians act like.

    The Citizens of the United States of America need our elected leaders from both parties to start working together to actually start trying to fix the real problems in our country like "outsourcing", illegal immigration, the out of control costs of health care insurance and our reliance on foreign fuel.

    Fix them together as Americans! – Because united we'll stand, but divided we'll fall.

    Once they're elected, our leaders should be working together for the good of the our country and our citizens by using combinations of the best ideas from both sides, versus just trying to make the other side look bad so they'll lose the next election, regardless of the damage that it does to the real American economy and the American people.
