    A vote for a losing candidate is not squandered

    A vote for a losing candidate is not squandered.

    Iím confident that the policies Obama ADVOCATED would have been to our nationís best interests. His lack of commitment to his own opinions does himself, the Democratic Party and our nation a great disservice.

    The Democratic Party declined to bring income taxes onto the floors of the U.S. Congress prior to the 2010 elections; In 2010 I declined to vote for Democrats. Iíve voted for Democrats each election since leaving the service in 1959. Last year I cast my vote for the Green Partyís congressional candidate.

    It may not be possible for the president to reverse the consequences of his so often acquiescing and surrendering his political positions. Heís lost his credibility. The presidentís promises and lovely speeches are not an acceptable substitute for actions. Heís the titular leader of the Party.

    President Obama and the Democratic Party had lost our votes in the 2010 elections. Itís not likely that we will vote for Democrats this November. The next round of budget decisions will affect our votes in the 2012 elections. Iíd be pleased if he would give us reason to again vote for Democrats.


    Itís hoped a nation moving the wrong direction will recognize correct their error. A directionless Democrat Party gives us no hope. Thus far it doesnít appear that we will be voting for Democrats in 2011 or 2012.

    Respectfully, Supposn

    Paul Ryan has a clear and concise plan to geet entitlement spending under control. The problem is not with revenue, the problem is with spending.
    Democrats campaigned on transparency. Yessireebob! They're transparent alright! People are seeing RIGHT THROUGH THEM!!

    When that's your reasoning, you've already lost.

    Clear and concise and absolutely worthless. Anyone can come up with a plan that balances the budget in 50 years. Mr. Ryan seems to think no one will do anything from now until then. The only person with any balls over in DC seems to be Rand and Ron Paul. Rand proposed $500 billion in cuts in the first year alone and even stated THAT wasn't enough because it didn't touch defense or entitlements. Ron Paul called out Paul Ryan on his plan as being nothing more than a republican dream bill labeled as being "fiscally conservative". Honestly, READ the plan. It does nothing for decades to help our situation. In fact, the proof is in the pudding, the current year spending agreement basically cut nothing of the budget and yet Paul Ryan labeled as the most cuts in the history of our nation.

    In short, the only good thing we can take from this is Paul Ryan is great at handing you feces and calling it brownies...and apparently you buying it.

    Really? How so? The Republican Congress has shown, in the last 2 1/2 years, exactly how not to lead. What with all the birther tallk, and their lack of concern for job production and restoring the economy, but breaking their necks to destroy universal healthcare and planned parenthood, shows a commitment to ideology and not any people.

    You blind guide. It was the Clinton Administration who offered up the subprime mortgage fiasco; your deluded gay friend Barney Franks who, under Bush '43, said there were no problems with Fannie. It was the Democrat Congress the last two years under W who held the purse strings and passed the budgets. And it was Pelosi, Reid, and that imbecile Obama who have been bankrupting the country for the last 2 years. If the current Republican congress is seeking to stop planned abortionhood from killing more of the innocent unborn, and stop Obamacare from bankrupting the country with its half-baked healthcare fiasco, then good for them. You radical liberals are dangerous. Go home.

    We already know you are deluded , your statement only proves you are an imbecile too. If Bush would have stayed with the Clinton Budget plan we would currently have our national debt paid off and have a surplus.
    Also planned Parenthood does not fund Abortions as the GOP would have you believe. They lie in order to gain support from Fundamental Whackos to cut a program that they have been against from day 1. The Gop claimed planned parenthood accounted for 95% of abortions.. the actual number is 3%.. Get your facts straight.

    Clinton didn't have a balanced budget until the Republicans forced him to when they took over the House. He was under the desk with Monica, another dumb liberal.

    Tell it to your baby Bama.

    Planned Parenthood performed 332,278 abortions in the United States in 2009, according to a fact sheet the group published....
    That is about as many as the 333,012 people who lived in the city of Cincinnati, Ohio, in 2009, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
    The 332,278 abortions Planned Parenthood performed over the 365 days of 2009 equals an average of 910 lives terminated per day–or about 38 per hour, or one every 95 seconds.

    CNS News also points out that 90 percent of Planned Parenthood’s $363.2 million came directly from the federal government–or from Medicaid, which is a federal-state program. And that’s according to Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Tait Sye. (the Blaze)

    Yes. He did. What the republicans wanted, and did not get, was a balanced budget amendment.

    A commitment to ideology is a commitment to people.

    Nonsense. When Paul and the rest of the Republicnas add "defense" to their bill they will be taken seriously. Until then they are just clowns. Arguing over 38 billion when Trillions are lost in defense is just goofy.

    They are not to be taken seriously until they actually get serious.
