    Go back and find where I said "Republicans do nothing." Until then we have little to discuss, there is no reason to lump me in with Democrats just because I do not side with Republicans on this effort to brand Obama the obstructionist.

    Reid's desk no longer exists.
    It is now McConnell's circular file where GOP House legislation will reside.
    Such as the DHS spending bill with poison pill amendments.

    The jury is still out on whether McConnell is true to his word and allows an open amendment process .

    Whether you said it or not you seem to believe it. What exactly would you call what Reid is doing and why wouldn't you believe Reid is doing exactly what Obama wanted?

    Go back and find what you claim of me or hush about it. Until then we have nothing to discuss. You made the claim, now back it up. I'll wait...

    Exactly which is why I said we are going to see exactly just how radical and out of touch with reality Obama is. You are going to be able to see the bills passed by the House and Senate and choose whether or not there are poison pills in them. I believe you are one of those who Gruber was talking about so wouldn't be surprised that anything the Republicans pass is going to be a poison pill for you.

    So you aren't claiming that the GOP is obstructionist? The facts say you would be right.

Bush didn't bully Congress, he got their support, support that Democrats now want to ignore as do you.
    It's weird to me that you determine quality of life based on a few percentage points of taxes.

    No, they're pretty much positioned themselves as the enemy of all the people of this country. That's why they keep pouring the middle and working classes' money into the rich, waste even more money and lives warmongering in the Middle East, destroying the social safety net, thwarting any attempts to embrace new technology in energy or transportation, trying to privatize control of the internet, and generally wreck any chance that young people have of not spending our whole lives in debt. They shut down the government once already in a refusal to pay the bills that they ran up. I wouldn't be surprised if they do it again.

    And that's just the economic damage they're wreaking.

    Better hope that isn't an explanation, if not then incompetence comes into play.
