The Truth from Becky

I am tire of the repubs and there last minute agreement games, playing russian roulette with my life! Control freaks, I am not amused!

Healthcare reform was overreach? I would say it was about 20 years overdue. Let us not forget the massively bad situation the Dems inherited in 2009. In retrospect, they should have had a first 100 days flurry of activity after Al Franken was seated in Senate.
I am looking forward to candidate Obama re-apperaing next year. Too bad we cannot rely on the media (not even NPR) to keep the GOP candidates honest. But I have faith (maybe misplaced) in independent voters, once the Dems make an honest (and usually belated) effort to speak to them.

Barrack Obama has proven himself a reserved, collected diplomat. He has worked with the worst group of people make at least drinkable lemonade out of sour lemons.

His second term is going to be be glorious.

By the way it’s a trick question. It’s always the voters who are to blame in a democracy

Who is the most to blame for this embarrassment? Boehner, the tea party or the voters?
