    i can only hope they do crazy **** like you mentioned. That sets the stage for their spectacular death now that they have to actually do something rather than complain about the democrats.
    Believe it or not, our Government governed longer without the IRS than it has with it. Income tax, too.

    He's the modern Carter, a fresh new face, with great words and a killer smile who, in the end, was more comfortable making up the White House tennis schedule than dealing with the hostage crisis.

    well then it puts to rest the notion the house is a do nothing house, since it put forth ...........387 bills it certainly did many things.

    so what will all of the next legislative bills passed by the house be in 2015?

    Yea but you guys seem a little down.

    Look at this as a opportunity for Obama to save what's left of his Presidency and his legacy.

    He could start passing some of those Jobs bills that have been sitting stagnant on Rieds desk.

    He could agree to repeal Obamacare ( its a disaster )

    He could vow to work with the Republicans for the good if the Country.

    This is quite an interesting spin, and, frankly, laughable.

    The remainder is predicated on myth and that the "reasonable" Democrats like lizard-brain Harry Reid actually think before they speak. I'm sorry to inform you that for your scenario to be even remotely possible, every Democrat in the House to date will have had to grow a conscience.

    meanwhile, you ignore the cheap, gutter ploy already in ploy by your sleazy president where he is already gearing up to rush through tons of bills while he still has a Senate majority.

    What is classic and obvious in all of your post is that the Democrats have NO intention of trying to work with the new reality.
    also in 2008 the democrats by predication stated the republican party was done ,that it would never rise again, it was dead..........i dont think we saw that.

    Please list them and why they are "stupid."

    Please also indicate what is the general opinion of the electorate on these and whether Harry Reid's sole decision to withhold them from debate and therefor full disclosure to the American people is one of sound democratic principles or the vengeful ravings of a madman from the most corrupt city in North America who runs around screaming "terorrists, jihadists and traitors" at his fellow elected lawmakers.

    Your mr. Reid's sanity is more than a little suspect.

    Three weeks ago, in this form, I read how Obama was going to retake the House and gain seats in the Senate.

    I have my issue with the American right, but stupid, propaganda predictions is not one of them. The **** that comes out of the mouths of the American left, including the media spin doctors is an insult to the intelligence to my guppies.
