  • Many Dems were/are not aware of that fact because their choice of media never told them. Good try trying to push this point across to them today.

  • According to wwwhowobamagotelected.com, most obama voters polled thougt Republicans were in control in Congress. THAT speaks volumes, imo.

  • gammie. Congress is the one who pushes the laws through to pass and the President is the one who passes them or veto them. The President can't make a law by himself.

  • I don't think that most people realize that Bush has been spending like a Dem. If he signed it, that means that the Dem. congress brought it to him. That means that the Dems wrote it, so they are responsible. Not happy that he signed it, but it's not all his to own.
