    Dodd and Dorgan are stepping down from the senate and Ritter from Governor of CO. Also heard Gov of Michigan isn't running. Guess their tea leaves weren't looking so good. Now lets make sure we get conservatives and not pseudo-conservatives elected.

    They're not the only Democrats that won't seek reelection. I guess they're smart enough to realize that running for reelection would be a waste of time and money at this point.

    There will be new Obamoids running in their places, who will promise that they are 'different' than the crooks and traitors they are replacing. The 'hope and change' fools will probably vote for them. Saving the republic is not going to be easy, and might not be possible with ballots.

    Good point. The old Dems will bow out and new Dems will run to replace them, and it will be the same commiefest yet again.

    It reminds me of the episode of "Futurama" where Fry, Bender, and Leela are watching the presidential debate. The two candidates are actually a pair of clones named Jack Johnson and John Jackson who say the same thing in different ways.

    Most dems know that they are screwed. They have been compared to bank robbers who are surounded. They have passed the point of no return and have nothing to lose, so why not finish robbing the bank? That is why they are going ahead with the further destruction of our country by doing such wreckless acts as ramming health care BS through despite mass opposition.

    I think that they are adopting a "scorched Earth" policy. "If I can't have it, nobody can", so they are going to destroy all that they can before the hammer falls.

    Some dems have blatantly said that they are not going to seek re-election or get re-elected, so they are pushing as hard as they can (against most Americans wishes) to pass the health care destruction bill.

    The reason they are not gonna run again is that they have a lot of money left in their campaine chest and don't want to waste it when they know that they will lose anyway.

    I think we all are reading too much into this. The sheeple have been voting Dem. for so long they'll elect any liberal do-gooder who promises a free meal. The ones bailing out are probably getting out while the getting is good or before they get indicted for having their hand in the cookie jar. I still don't think there are enough Rep's., Ind's., or swing voters to overpower the increasing numbers of congenital welfarer's, minorities, illegals and liberals who drink the free Kool-aid. Until and as long as we don't hold our elected officials accountable for their blatant acts of malfeasance, impose term limits and put them on the same retirement and health-care system as the rest of us, they will continue to treat us as ignorant peons with deep pockets.

    Hate to scare you, but, we had term limits here, too, until somebody got the law changed. I guess we still do, but instead of two, it's now three.

    Rats leaving a sinking ship.

    There replacements will tow the line too. Must not vote Dem. for many years. I just hope there GOP replacements aren't bought and paid for.

    Wonder what rewards will be given to those who betrayed their country now that they have to step down. There is still nearly a Trillion in unspent funds floating around waiting for the next election.

    Stay tuned for more outrages.

    I didn't hear Rush but that is interesting as Geitner is in trouble. They are digging up things like illegal advice he gave AIG when he was in the NY Fed. Hey it's ok, he's Turbo-Timmy the tax pro.

    Firing him gives Obama another year of cover on the lousy economy.

    Oh joy. I'm getting a tingle running up my leg just thinking about Dodd as Treasury Secretary:rolleyes:

    He won't need another year of cover because he'll just keep on blaming Bush.

    Those politicians from congress ain't got any worries. They will get FULL congressional salary the rest of there lives and the perks also. They ought to be made to be under the same healthcare and rules that the american people are.
