    What has the GOP leadership in the 2010 Congress done except to continue the tax cuts for the rich?
    What are you getting out of the Obama Administration? GOP Controls the HOUSE not Congress and that became effective in JANUARY 2011, not 2010.

    Reversal of the loss of jobs under Bush.

    Reversal of economic decline under Bush

    Reversal of the stock market decline under Bush

    The withdrawal of troops from Iraq that McCain had said he would be fine with leaving there 50 or 100 years.

    Health care reform

    Biggest reduction in CO2 in history.

    Biggest investment in alternative energy in history

    Middle class tax cut.

    Those were the biggies for me

    In 2010 the GOP claimed they swept elections. What have they done in the last year, besides cutting funding to NPR and getting the tax cuts continued for the their clients?

    Is this just supposition or do you have evidence to support such a statement?
    Do you mean the one failed company Solyndra, where our investment costs less than a week of the almost 9 year optional war in Iraq?
    One failed company?…try 4 and counting:
    Raser Technologies- Failed energy projects cross party lines
    Beacon Power Corp. and Nevada Geothermal - Financial turmoil grips two more

    And as to Iraq being optional aren’t ALL wars optional? Please take a minute and review various comments made by Democrats on the topic - Democrat Quotes on Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction . Then consider H.J.Res. 114 passed the House 296-133 (for=215R/82D-39%) Senate 77-23 (for=48R/29D-58%). The cost is another issue. Bush/Congress should have passed a means to fund both Iraq and Afghanistan.

    What has the GOP leadership in the 2010 Congress done except to continue the tax cuts for the rich?
    “On December 15, 2010, the Senate passed the compromise package with an 81–19 vote, with large majorities of both Democrats and Republicans supporting it. December 16, the House passed the measure on a vote of 277–148, with only a modest majority of Democrats but a large majority of Republicans voting for the package. The Washington Post called the approved deal "the most significant tax bill in nearly a decade". President Barack Obama signed the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, on December 17, 2010.”

    Sounds like the GOP leadership sat back and let the DEMOCRAT leadership pass the extension you speak of.

    Keep trying to re-write history

    Reaganomics Vs. Obamanomics: Fallacies Offered By The Left - Forbes

    President Obama likes to pretend that a third of his trillion dollar stimulus involved tax cuts too. But those “tax cuts” all involved temporary tax credits which are economically no different from increased government spending. Indeed, a majority of the Obama “tax cuts” were “refundable” income tax credits, which involve sending a government check to people who do not even pay income taxes, economically indistinguishable from increased government spending. That is why even the federal government’s own official beancounters account for such refundable credits in the federal budget as spending rather than tax cuts. Such tax credits do not have the incentive effects of rate cuts explained above

    But we didn't go to war after the first Twin tower bombing nor after the bombing of the USS Cole. Why not?

    Sorry but I must have missed your answer or just didn't understand, please try again.

    What is an 'assmoing'?
