    The Republicans have been against President OBama from the start. This indicates Bias. My own opinion is that there are a group of Republicans that are "Closet Racists".http://www.unclesammysays.us

    I see a lot of people are begining to put this into words. I have been waiting for several years for the public and the media to acknowledge this "hidden agenda". These RACISTS will do anything including tearing apart the global ecomomy just out of thier BLIND HATRED. We all need to start calling them out on this issue. When you call, write or email these RACIST TRAITORS, let them know we are not fooled by thier games and will not have the typical SHORT MEMORY that we usually have. I have been keeping a list of each repub in the house. I would advise watching them on cspan so you get the info "from the horses mouth". They want us to forget they had this planned for a long time despite statements that they didn't want to shut the gov't down. THey even celebrated the day after and staff could smell the celebration on thier breath. ( Wonder what they would say about other gov't workers who come to work intoxicated!!!

    There has not been any President prior to President Obama that has ever inherited a total mess in terms of all the major problems in a number of areas instead of just a few major problems that began with a financial crisis that was hurdling our country and it's citizens into a state of recession, inheriting a major debt crisis from a Republican President who eight years prior was faced with the complete opposite when he entered office after our Democratic President at the time President Clinton had led us too a time when our nation was in fact in the black and also had a sizeable surplus that was available after he had served two terms in the White House. We all know clearly what the outcome for our nation was after the two terms served under President George Bush and the hypocrisy, repeated lies, and refusal by Republicans to accept responsibility for their own actions, instead of the chronic lies they continually have given us while they play the blame game and shift attentions away from their own inability too lead this country as a party while remaining clueless and absent of contributing any reasonable ideas to provide jobs, and etc. Instead of just opposing and obstructing any and all efforts of the Democrats or job's bills offered by President Obama. Republicans have continued too work hard at destroying our country while portraying themselves as the fiscal debt watchdogs while they are condoning, engaging in and encouraging racist and disrespectful treatment of President Obama and directing those same negatives and their alleged concern about the conditions our nation is in that they are so motivated to be protecting for the generations to come in the future. While they continually seek to destroy the validity and the power associated with being elected by the majority to the Office of President by seeking too damage the creditability of our sitting President not only here at home but even more so with leaders and governments abroad which clearly is meant too work against the best interests of our nation and it's citizen's. None of these stunts we have repeatedly seen used against President Obama and Democrats have been called for and the sad fact is that not even a sliver of these professed concerns where put forth or even mentioned by Congressional Republicans when the Republican President was running up the nation's debt to stage wars that it has been a proven fact that President Bush and his Administration blatantly lied and manipulated the American people, Congress, United Nations, and the news media in order too put the United States in the very middle of two costly wars with regards to the loss of lives and running up the nation's debt.

    Common sense adults will have too make a choice and come out in droves that the Republicans behavior has severe consequences for all of them when they openly made clear in the first term of President's Obama presidency that they would not be working at all with the Office of President and do what was best for the entire country not just a few classless politicians who have every desire to destroy our democracy and who would rather bring us more shame and negative views inside the United States and more importantly outside of the U.S. were a number of people and governments take offense that we attempt to force our democracy and government down their throats and throw our power around as if we are bullies and yet we don't even get along or have any respect for our own President because of what the Tea Party/Republicans have done as if they have total immunity for a number of repeated treasonous actions and words which each member of Congress took a oath and obviously a considerable number of them lied when accepting the terms of that oath and yet they claim President Obama should be impeached. Would any of us be willing to sit back and not do nothing if these same tactics were used against any other sitting President prior to Obama. Would we be quick to just believe and just accept every negative suggestion and racist innuendos that one radical party and it's members have put out too defame the character and reputation of any other sitting President up-to now. Would we sit by and just accept the antics of a party who professes to only be concerned with getting our spending under control who in turn shuts down our government which it is a fact that instead of saving money instead the shutdown is costing us millions if not billions every week the government is shutdown when in 2011 the Tea Party Republican's actions cost us as U.S. taxpayers a significant figure in dollars then also. Republicans have falsely implied that they were also concerned about creating a jobs but their actions showed they were in fact more determined and fixated on destroying jobs by furloughing over 800,000 jobs and discouraging employers from having confidence again in the economy and our system of government and it's lawmakers by starting to hire a significant number of Americans again. Our politicians are not on a sports team and should be held to a even more higher standard when the consequences of their actions has the ability to effect in the long-term so severely so many people in a way that our sports figures never could.

    I'm not for either side anymore, Republicans are worried about their past (future), and my Democratic party does not vote, and are wimps, why was Wall street bailed-out, I voted for Obama and would again (if he could run). But what has he real done? Healthcare without single payer (is nothing), Elections without single payer (same old B.S, the people do not count), no conversation about overpopulation (endless, not really, even I can see where that’s leading us, what was that guy’s name who said "helter skelter"?) , this is not Obama’s fault it's ours, we need to own it and not just watch anymore. It's out of hand, people. A question, what did I owe Wall Street? (Sending jobs overseas to enslave other people to make more money, after Regan removed the tariffs or maybe taking a percentage of everyone’s work) What was the reason Wall Street was bailed-out again? I regress; I'm not for either side anymore!

    Seems like the race thing always comes up when people run out of political arguments. I grew up in the deep south, and our democratic leaders walked in lockstep with the Klan. My dad was an out cast republican amongst all of the democrats in our community... but he was proud to say MLK was a republican, and so was the man that ended slavery....Lincoln. We all need to be careful of the race thing, study history, and take the high road when it comes to the race. Pulling the race card wears it out for when it is really needed.

    One of the reasons Obamacare is in so much trouble is that nothing seems to work. It is an unmitigated fiasco. I have been trying since October 1 to get enrolled as Blue Cross is cancelling my insurance due to not meeting Obamacare regulations. So much for the promise that I could keep my insurance..! Remember when Bush said "no new taxes"...! I guess broken promises are boundless...? I have been trying to contact my senator (Kay Hagen, Dem, NC) for three weeks about my dilema, and she will not return my calls....I am sure she is getting blistered. Based on some things I saw today, the Obamacare website still is not working....and now I am worried the site may have been hacked. I know other HHS sites have had problems. Now I am worried about giving HHS any confidential info. It's just a giant mess. I feel embarassed...I can only imagine how the President must feel, having surrounded himself with such incompetent people.
