    It's going to be a Woderful Day today! The day America OFFICIALLY stands up to take back our Country from the Liberals who have squandered so much of our hard work and sweat. And one step closer to dismanteling the Welfare Machine that rewards those unwilling and able bodied people who refuse to pull their own weight !! Thankyou America! That makes it a little easier for me to get out of my cozy bed and face the realities and responsibilities, while others just roll over and sleep in, while I pay their way.

    Why don't you display the real time graphic of the House of Representatives race like you do for the Senate and Governors races? It seems really strange that you don't have an on screen indicator for that like the other two races. Especially considering this is such an historic sweep.

    Wait, what were the Republican priorities again. Oh yeah, cut taxes, reduce the deficit and cut spending. Hmmm, I seem to remember, oh it was so long ago, that when the Reps were in charge government spending increased (love the $3 trillion for 2 unending wars), middle class taxes were higher and the deficit went through the roof! Yes, it's a great day in America. More slogans! More empty slogans! Hooray!

    In June 1995, Republican John Boehner the soon to be speaker of the house distributed campaign contributions from tobacco industry lobbyists on the House floor as House members were weighing how to vote on tobacco subsidies.

    Yeah you took back America and just handed it to Big Business.

      That is blatantly false, for one. Bush claimed to be fiscally responsible and started two wars, both ill-planned and worse, one of which has had no reason for beginning in the first place (Where were those weapons of mass destruction again?). The worst part of it all is that thanks to the Republicans, especially Bush, Rove and Cheney, more than 5,000 of your fellow citizens will never return home, leaving wives and children without husbands and fathers, FOR NO REASON.

      How can you justify the deaths of 5,000 of your fellow citizens when there was no sense in their deaths? I know - by voting the party that got them killed back into power. This is why I will never vote republican (not that the democrats are great by any measure). This is why I am disgusted to see citizens disregard the 100,000 civilian deaths in Iraq alone. This is why I am disgusted with conservatism in America, especially republicans who claim to be 'more patriotic' than democrats.

    Cole. The tax hike you are talking about was designed into the Bush tax cut bill. The democrats wanted to stop it from happening but again the republicans are sticking to their plan. Just say no.

    Well if America belongs to the native americans, why don't you guys fight back? Everyone wants to complain, including illegals and want someone else to fight for them? I forgot to include the Muslem americans. Fight for your beliefs yourselfs and stop expecting others to fight for you.
