I think most of the world knows the answer to this, but I would really like to see what 2861, INDY, or Bluer White has to say about this...

I think it's cut spending, cut taxes (and back to tax breaks for wealthy)=creation of jobs. And oppose the Obama agenda.

I do think it was a huge mistake for Obama and the Democrats to rush health care while we have 10 plus percent unemployment and are still in a big recession. And to go about it in a closed doors behind the scenes way when he talked so much about transparency. How could they not know that this would create anger and resentment?

Believe it or not, if even with a loss in MA, president Obama and the Democrats will have larger majorities in the House and Senate than Bush or Reagan ever enjoyed. Republicans are not the party in power.

So for now we'll just settle for the "reaching across the aisle' and "government transparency" all of us were promised.

Non-civility and the profligate use of the filibuster is the main difference between now and then.

Perhaps it's time to use the "nuclear option" once and for all, and kill the filibuster as a tool for obstructionism. And, yes, I say this with the realization that the GOP will someday be in the majority again (as is typical in the election cycle), and that the Democrats should no longer use it either.

Or go back to listening to their constituents rather than trying to jam unpopular bills through with political bribes, payoffs and gimmicks.

How in the hell does that even answer his question?

His question is that once you guys get some power back, what are you going to do?

I mean, seriously, the GOP seems entirely about hating random shit and nothing else. We hate taxes! We hate "liberal progressives!" We hate terrorists/foreign people! We hate big government! We hate the recession!

Great. What the fuck are you going to do about it, then? Obviously, you think the people currently working at doing something aren't doing it right. What's your idea?

What if, gasp, the constituents don't know what the fuck they're talking about?

Cute, but, as we both know, corruption is at least as much a part of the GOP as it is for the Democrats. I won't even try and start a discussion as to which one is worse--they're both bad.

Obama's election, I believe, was a vote for Obama, and not the Democratic Party. Of course, what the GOP doesn't understand, is that it wasn't a vote for the Republican Party either.

i do agree on one point you're making: there is only one adult left in DC.

thankfully, he's in the White House.
