Thom asks this question from time and it is a question we should ask regularly.

At one point Thom had an okay response -- George W. was for an AIDS program in Africa -- of course it was underfunded, etc.

But frankly, what are the Republicans for that hehlp the average American?

Water? Air? Education? Safety? Health?

I sure agree with Garrison Keilor: "If you were in a hospital on oxygen, would you want the fingers controlling the oxygen to be Republican or Democrat? I know what I would want, and it is becoming clearer to more Americans what they would want too.

Have any of the top national Republican leaders supported a program recently to help the average American? Anything at all? Well, I guess there was that ad involving Newt and Nancy Pelosi on the importance of curbing carbon emissions but Newt has since learned to say terrible things about Pelosi and terrible things about curbing carbon emissions.

Well, I guess that example doesn't count, but surely??? Really, nothing?
