Then come back to the Senate and start dissecting it apart piece by piece on the parts they can, some which they have bipartisan support and take them to Obama's desk. No longer will Congress be the party of "No", if legislation doesn't move, it rests on Obama's head.
    Or more simply put:

Leave it to what it's historically been used for outside of Obamacare.
    I feel like if they were to make Obamacare priority one, I think it just blows up in their face. And it's obviously not going to pass a Presidential VETO so obviously not getting done. What Republicans HAVE to do, to restore any credibility, is come up with a series of legislations that have popular support, get them passed and let Obama veto the hell out of them first. At least then it looks less political instead of going straight for Obamacare. Hell, leave it alone and you might actually get Obama to work with you...

    I was just pointing out that reducing a brilliant man (by all accounts) who has been entrenched in politics for decades to a character he portrayed several times in the 80s seems a little absurd. You should call John McCain "little diaper boy" because he used to wear diapers! For years! As a child, sure, but nonetheless, is a man who used to be an infant really fit for leadership?

    The Press should be all over that dingbat.....and letting her hear how wrong she was and totally out of touch with reality.
    Since they hadn't noticed it in the last 4 years, what makes you think they will now?

Education, health care, and defense are all incredibly bloated because the people who are supposed to keep them in check are more or less their employees.

    It's true that this could be a significant short term victory. But the trend is obvious: blame whoever is in charge instead of blaming ourselves for allowing our government to be owned by special interest groups, bureaucrats, and billionaires.
    You aint lying. We DESERVE the govt we ALLOW.

    I just turned to MSNBC for some fun. I think Maddow may cry on air. She just said something about Republicans not wanting to govern, they just want to make Obama look bad (like he isn't already doing that on his own). The wake continues.

    She certainly appears as if she's spent much time under rocks. Her sexist "Scott Walker pulls women back by the hair" comments didn't appear to work.

    It'll actually be really interesting to see how this election compares to the 2010 election.

    Play ball how? He offered Repubs their own policies that they came up with but they still chose to vote it down because Obama was prez. What kind of ball playing does he need to do?
