It's funny how "supporting and defending the Constitution" is considered extremist now and the few politicians who support that ideal are considered "wacko-birds". Maybe we should include that idea in an "oath of office" for those who want to hold office. Wait a minute...............

Buff:

The people who "won" are the entrenched, lifetime, ruling elite from both parties who play with our money, handing it out to friends and supporters instead of addressing the nation's real needs.

It is this elite group, made up of members of both parties, that have failed to address poverty, homelessness, mental health, etc but build dams and bridges to nowhere.

We are trying to clean-up our side and oust these entrenched, self-serving vermin.

Please do the same on your side and this will be a better nation.

Bufftrev1, nobody won, especially the American people. The can was just kicked down the road for another day. Government will continue to grow and uncontrolled spending will go unchecked. So if democrats consider this a won, then I would hate to see what they consider a loss.

It interesting to me to witness the power struggle consuming the republican party, and it also worth noting that it is because of the established, or moderate, republicans that a deal was reached in order to avoid taking the world economy off the cliff. Ted Cruz can't spin this one to present it as a win no matter how hard he tries.

People got a real sense of how destructive the Tea Party and republicans are.

There is an establishment in both parties that care little about the people and only about themselves.

At least the Tea Party is doing something and is successfully displacing these entrenched leaches with independent, constitutional servants.

What are liberals doing?

Defending their corrupt, racist, politicians like Charlie Rangel.

This mindset in Washington DC will continue until Democrats wake up that their own party is full of ignorant, self-serving cretins.

"In politics, name recognition is the number of people who are aware of a politician. It is considered an important factor in elections, as candidates with low name recognition are unlikely to receive votes from people who only casually follow politics. Name recognition is also considered a major obstacle for challengers hoping to defeat incumbents." Wikipedia

"I have often wondered about the absolute stupidity In certain sections of this country that they will continue to elect corrupt officials who would rather see the country go down in flames than compromise with the president."

I'm sure those sections of the country that you reference, feel the same way about this section of the country. It's never "our guy" that's the problem and that's why the notion that voters are the ones that set term limits for our Congressional leaders, doesn't hold water.
