    I'll write slower for you. Most see themselves as conservatives. A majority voted for Obama. This required people who see themsleves as conservatives. He was making a funny you missed.

    They're all liberal. Rich folk are mostly liberal. We all know that.

    47% of income earning households don't pay any FIT so wonder why they would vote on raising taxes on someone else? What exactly does raising taxes on those evil rich people accomplish?

    What do you call it when a political party controls the WH and the Congress with a filibuster proof majority?
    Yeah for one year...maybe Dems should of rammed through as much legislation as possible...they didn't though.

    As for the debt ceiling mess, how does increasing the credit card limit change your spending habits?
    It's the actual debt ceiling as much as the fact something that generally is passed easily turns into a cluster fu**. It also did NOTHING! but give us this stupid trigger thingy that both parties are trying to get rid of. So grats, you Republicans made America look like idiots and accomplished nothing.
    The Paul Ryan Budget was rejected and there are no spending cuts
    Yeah...which is no suprise to anybody. Republicans knew the Ryan budget wasn't going to pass the senate. Instead of actually doing there job and trying to compromise and create a plan they know Dems and Rep can pass they pass a plan they know won't get through the Senate and call it a day.

    Dumb.

    Whether you like it or not, it will be the Obama results on the ballot in 2012 and those results were generated with a Democrat controlled Congress from 2009-2010 with overwhelming numbers. There is nothing that Obama implemented during that period of time that benefited the private sector and thus the results speak for themselves. Only the true political junkies here including me aren't going to make a hill of beans difference in the 2012 election but the silent majority will. We saw an example of what will happen with the 2010 elections and then gain the 2011 elections where Va and Mississippi turned their legislature over to Republicans.

    Obama cannot run on his record and thus is working on the devisive campaign rhetoric to rile up his base which today is a declining number

    Again just to show the control that the Democrats had

    The measure passed by a 61-38 vote, with just two Republicans crossing party lines to support the bill
    Then there was the November 2010 elections
