Birdman III: Neither party is sparkling clean but the Republican party has hit a new low. The only time Romney tied Obama in the polls was when he moved to the center. Your party is the one that focuses on abortion, gays, and immigration while they claim to focus on economics. And (1) pregnant women are a lot more capable of making a decision about abortion than the government (2) the government shouldn't say who has the right to marry; (3) gas prices are not controlled by the president but set on the WORLD market; and (4) I don't remember Republican outrage when Bush was running up a 5 trillion deficit- because there wasn't any! Jack2894 is spot on and you just helped his point.
