    It's better than yours, when you say you care about results when we all know you would vote for Bush in a second if you could. The same Bush that led this country to near economic collapse in 2008.

    Two failures in a row. How's that for buying results over rhetoric?
    Bush's results were a lot different than posted. Too many ignore non partisan data showing the Bush results and buy the liberal rhetoric. Results always mattered to me and I judge Bush on 8 years not 2008. Bush didn't have overwhelming control of Congress when he took office in 2001 like Obama had. Obama has had over 2 1/2 years, most of which was with overwhelming numbers and generated the results we have today. He is either incompetent or an ideologue knowing exactly what he is doing which is to destroy individual incentive and individual wealth creation by promoting class warfare.

    Obama never had overwhelming control of congress because the GOP decided they would filibuster everything.

    Pb, I took a civics course and know who controlled the legislative process in 2007-2008 when we went into recession and the financial collapse. I keep asking what Democrats did to prevent that collapse and I see nothing then but I do see what is going on today so the problems continue indicating that the Democrats are doing today what they did in 2007-2008, making things worse.

    That sounds really neato, except that he doesn't have any plan for actually enacting any of this, much less what kind of spending he's going to pitch out the window in order to avoid the deficit this will undoubtedly create, much less what his plan is for winning those spending cuts.

    Sorry, I guess I should've been more specific and asked for a realistic plan. Hell, the Republicans could've based their plan on stealing leprechaun gold and you could technically say they have a plan.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Those elections are run locally on local media and decided by local voters. Most of the promises made by the candidates deal specifically with local issues. When a Representative doesn't have much power, they latch onto things done by more powerful Representatives that can be painted as beneficial to their local constituents. When a Representative has a lot of power, they do things that are beneficial to their local constituents. Sounds pretty local to me.

    I doubt seriously that you care what the Republican Plans are as you ignored that Obama has failed to deliver on any promised results from his plan. Whoever the Republicans nominate will be better than the current occupant of the Wh as the results show. When the nominate process is complete then you can compare the GOP Plan to the Obama results although I doubt that will matter. Obama has a great smile, reads a good speech, seems to be a good family person but is better suited as a community agitator or holding a Harvard faculty conference in the faculty lounge.

    When did Obama ever consistently control 60 votes in the Senate? Sure, he was able to barter to get 60 votes on a number of occasions -- but he had to barter, that majority wasn't his to command.
