    Re: Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    So, to rap this all up, because the Republican party blocked "senate control" from 2008-2010 they gained control in 2010. They PURELY used this tactic to gain control of the senate so they could then go partisan on us. Republican's only care about their agenda and nothing else. They could care less if the country burns to the ground as long as they still have their position in the government, which I might add that they are in favor of making smaller. It seems Republican's are all in favor of removing jobs as long is it isn't theirs. In conclusion, as my previous post pointed out, the economy is not Obama's fault because he couldn't get ANY of his bills past with the exception of Obamacare, which the republicans could not even keep their paws out of. So now we are stuck with a half ass healthcare plan with a bunch of useless clauses so the republicans can later refute it and a ****ty economy. All because republicans wanted to prove Obama wrong. When in fact, they were the ones to blame all along.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    I really am worried about the education system in this country that is brainwashing you. The Republicans don't control the Senate unless you believe Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid switched parties. You really are very misinformed and unfortunately a voter

    Do you not understand that by blocking anything getting done, they are the sole responsibility of Obama not passing any positive legislation? (#5 oh and #1, I think a spin is coming up next, anyone else want to take a wager?)

    Do you understand that you claimed that the Republicans took control of the Senate?

    oops.... Nice fail, though.
    You mean those republicans who wanted to be reelected and not seen as someone voting against something called a "jobs bill" when their states needed jobs badly? I can't imagine why they would do that.

Forget Congress for they are just place holders.
    this line of bs coming from someone who thinks obama should have been able to fix the mess he inherited within 24 hours of taking office...good grief, the hackery here is simply amazing.

    Let me know when that 24 hours is up on your clock? My problem with Obama isn't based upon the clock but instead the calendar which shows he has been in office now over 2 3/4 years and prior to that in the Congress that helped create the mess he claims he inherited. Then of course there is that minor issue of Congressional control which of course was Democratic control from 2008-2010. Interesting how the "smartest" person ever to hold the office with overwhelming numbers in Congress generated the results that you want to ignore. Guess that is what union employees do, ignore results.

    i'm seeing a pattern here with you, when busted, when backed into a corner, when you have no rebuttal, jump straight to step 5...lol..you are so damn predictable. your problem with obama is that he is a democrat, as has been shown repeatedly, his results are no worse, and in fact, again, as has been shown, are comparable if not better than several of his republican predecessors at this point in his term. yet, you give him hell, but you pulled the lever in favor of all his republican predecessors, multiple times. so AGAIN, AS HAS BEEN SHOWN, RESULTS DON'T MEAN CRAP TO YOU. so long as there is an (R) next to the name.

    I will continue to give you an opportunity to be relevant and actually respond to the post. When you post crap like you become irrelevant. Better check out those Republican's and their performance at this time during their term and two years after the recessions they had occurred. You are going to find that liberal elites have lied their asses off to you.
