    You could not ask for a better formula for Democratic success in 2016.
    This is so right on. Can you imagine the spew of ideology that would come out of a bicameral GOP -- proclamations about "legitimate rape," ecstasies about returning to the gold standard, creationism required to be taught in science classes, calls for out of control defense spending on useless weapons, deregulation of pollution as "natural" (that's Reaganesque), internment camps for illegal immigrants . . . It will be as if Glenn Beck were Speaker of the House and Rush Limbaugh were leader of the Senate.

    and I suspect that would be only the tip of the iceberg. I would also expect to see efforts to repeal the graduated income tax and either get rid of or seriously emasculate the IRS. They would also most likely reduce or even repeal corporate taxes and do the same with the capital gains tax.

    It doesn't change the argument much, since again, this is not "75% of independent disagree", plus, the GOP can "win" the Independents... and lose the election.

    The fact is...there is only so much he CAN do. Frankly...his mouth has been writing checks his office cant cash. He can do a lot with Executive Orders...but he CANNOT usurp law. Immigration law is what it is.
    A few videos means nothing.

    Actually, it means the world. You actually think the president is delaying immigration action because GOP voters?

    So, where in that did I threaten you, haymarket? Clearly you don't grasp rhetorical response. Not my problem.

    Perhaps you DID NOT read your OWN WORDS in the very post that I printed them in that you just used to springboard to this post from you?

    Now how could that even be possible?

    I was talking about politicians getting payback and you attempted to tell me I would be squealing for mercy when the GOP took over.

    get real here.
