    Why a story from 13 months ago? And BTW, President Obama's poll numbers are rising impressively, while those of Republicans are dropping proportionally in the other direction. And though Obama may not be a Messiah (nor would I think any President to be), neither is he a Republican meathead.

    Which is all Republicans seem capable of producing these days. Without Fox News and conservative commentators being their apologists & cheerleaders, Republicans would otherwise be laughed off the national stage.

    Who's this "we" anyway? The only time I ever heard anyone use the word "Messiah" was from media types telling me what Obama voters were thinking.

    I'm sure it's true. We all went to the polls thinking, "I'll vote for Obama. He's the next Messiah."

    It had nothing to do with how much better a choice he was than McCain/Palin.

    Fact of YOUR life, in other words, your opinion, not necessarily ours.

    To many people who couldn't get health insurance before Obamacare, he's probably the next best thing.

    Calling Jesus evil is not "hating religion." It's just calling someone out on their Holy Roller, I'm the Messiah, bullshit.icon_mad.gif

    The question remains. What did Washington really accomplish for "WE THE PEOPLE"/ Seriously guys, we are part of the system and yet it seems we are all scratching our heads.

    What next?

    What's good for some people ain't necessarily good for some others. For example, while you are punching the air because gas dropped below $2.00 a gallon, some oil worker in Texas is miserable because he's now out of a job. Everyone has differing priorities. You'd have to be very naive to think government can meet the expectations of everyone.

    I agree, but policy should strive to benefit the most and harm the fewest. The Keystone pipeline, for example, does the opposite. "Trickle down" economics and deregulation are also examples of backwards policy making.

    While I agree with the correctness of your overall premise, your specific example may not be.

    Oil workers are enjoying a bonanza, as US domestic oil production ramps up to record levels, accounting for the fall in gasoline prices at the pump. If an oil worker should lose his job in Gov. Rick Perry's dystopian State of Texas, he can find work in western North Dakota, that is seeing their biggest oil boom in history, with workers flooding in as fast as the oil is flowing out.

    The ones who might be hurting are oil market speculators. Well, that's the free market, right? But even the producers are doing well in the US. It's suppliers like OPEC and Russia who are hurting, and that's fine with me.
