    You saying the one who threatens to nuke but doesn't is worst than the one who threatens and drops the nuke.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Doubtful Nim, they'll probably use the same tactic the Dems did with Reconciliation, I think I heard them already talking about it. I've said it before, it's better for one party to control congress and the other to control white house, makes it easier to negotiate. At least we won't have bills being sent to either houses just to die.

    Not from the house. Not from the Senate. No the cabinet. The governorships.

    Senate and House offices are legislative positions with legislative experience to be had. Important yes, but not the experience and skills it takes to be a good president. A leader.

    This comes from being a The Governor. A good Governor. And multiple states in dire straights have been turned around by Republican Governors in recent years, each potentially poised to run, a good run, in 2016 or 2020.
    Control of the Senate is very important for the short term...for the next two years.

    The Governorships are important for the long term...for 2016.

    Let the liberal spin begin. One of these days you are going to realize exactly what made this country great and it wasn't liberalism but rather personal responsibility, risk taking, and freedom to make mistakes and pay the consequences for those mistakes. My sincere thanks to Obama for destroying liberalism and showing that true arrogance will never succeed. TX got it right again and will always be the beacon of light for the country. What a great state I live in and a true model for the nation. Wake up liberals

    Eh? Synder won. I'm confused. What's up with that?
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels
