    I like Mc Cain but after his choice for his presidential running mate I question his ability to make rash decisions maybe its time he quits and goes fishing .

    I think a lot of congressmen should wake up. It's not just Democrats but Republicans as well that are in danger of losing their seat. A lot of guest commentators need to wake up and realize their party is not the greatest. I am sick of the fighting. We sent them to Washingtion to serve their state and do the best they can and no one is working to help the voters only themselves. Myself, I will not vote for an incumbent.

    Seems as though someone has realized that polictians on Captiol Hill are brain dead. For the most part they need Jesus.

    It was reported on 2/18 that McCain's party has been walking away from the 'Jobs Legislation". The American people should not put anyone back in Washingron that walks away from our country! What do they charge our service members with when they desert our country?
