    Are you still denying yer a Republican or have you jumped on the bandwagon like the rest of these new-found GOP ?
    WTF are you talking about? Where have I ever denied voting GOP? I can't call myself a registered Republican because we don't do that in Texas but I've donated both to the RNC and GOP candidates.

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 disagree and here's why.

    Do you agree or disagree that Obamacare was one of the primary things driving the Republican victories today? If you disagree, then what's your explanation of the NUMEROUS polls that seem to show it's one of the primary issues in voters minds and the various data showing it was the most focused upon issue across the country?

    If you agree...then the Republicans would be doing a disservice to their constituents if they don't make a go at it soon.

    I don't think it will hurt them if they make Obamacare priority number one. What I think will hurt them is if they make it priority one, get it vetoed, and then spend the next 3 months still focusing singularly on obamacare rather than moving on to broader issues that they have a legitimate chance of picking up 1 to 10 democrats in support of and pushing ahead on that.

    But I disagree entirely with you on not taking on Obamacare immediately. It's too big and instrumental of an issue with this race to simply then come in and ignore.

    Dunno. It really depends on what he says, how he handles the situation, what his intentions are, and how it's received and handled by the congressional leaders.

    I really hope you are joking. Obama had a shot in 2010 to do this, and why would he do anything substantive now that he doesn't have to worry about re-election? Look I hope for this country's sake I'm wrong, but really, it's all PR until Obama and whomever is the Republican representative come out hand and hand with a plan. I don't like the idea of having all the leaders up there, as it just muddies up the waters, let Obama be on one side and a strong Republcian on the other, and one on one make things happened. Easier to do without having ten people in the room..
