Those same maligned voters got us into this mess in the 1st place..bunch of brain-dead morons who fell for the dopechangey.
Every 16 years, like clockwork, American voters fall for a Democratic candidate who says that being nice to our enemies will lead to a more peaceful world, blah blah blah. Hence, Jimmy Carter in 1976, Bill Clinton in 1992, and Barack O-sh*t-head in 2008.
The policies of the first two led to huge Republican victories -- Reagan in 1980, and the Gingrich-led congressional takeover in 1994. It appears that O-sh*t-head is leading his party to a similar fate in 2010, although the turnover in seats might be larger than in 1994 (+54 for the GOP).
Clinton at least was a savvy politician and was able to keep his office during the 1996 election by veering right (and because Ross Perot ran a second time). Carter tried veering right but he was viewed, correctly, as spineless and incompetent. Obama is far more like Carter than Clinton, and he hopefully will be relegated to a single term.
Why can't the American electorate learn? We are fundamentally a center-right nation yet the electorate votes in these lefty, pansy, feel-good sweethearts every 16 years.
The more things change, the more things stay the same.
