If all the disastrous bills these Democrats pushed down our throats was so good for we the people then why are they running on them? They told us they would make thing better but instead they have made them much worse thanks to their actions. The Democratic Party has been in control of both the house and the senate for almost 4 years now. Since we have had the Democrats as a majority and a Democratic president this country has gone to hell. I'm not saying it's all the Democrats fault. The Republicans weren't anything to write your Mom about either. But when it comes to failing the American people the Democrats have won that one hands down. As long as the Democratic Party bows to the Progressives it will fail like the Progressive policies have. It's high time both parties root out the Progressives. But until then I'm all for the Republican Party and the Democratic Party can go to hell for all I care.

Suzanne Kosmas, a Congressional candidate in Florida, tries to echo the country’s, and her constituents’, frustration:
But lacking in all the talk of dumping the Democratic agenda is why it is so surprising that current and potential leaders would adopt the sentiments of their constituents, instead of adhere to party lines with fervor. Politicians, after all, are elected to enact the will of the people.
The fact that such a concept is so foreign could mean a shake up in November.
Another popular Democrat distancing himself from Obama and his party is Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold. A quick visit to his website highlights the trend. The two most prominent headlines are “Feingold is more loyal to Wisconsin than to presidents” and “Feingold will be in Senate when Obama is in Madison.” Both brag that Feingold stayed in Washington while Obama touted his economic agenda in Wisconsin.
In fact, the first article goes as far as to call Feingold a “maverick,” the title popularized by Republican John McCain during the 2008 presidential campaign.
True to form, he touts his vote against the controversial bank bailouts:
