    He is whining about people resisting what he wants. How is that underestimation?

    Group think nonsense is all you are falling back on.

    How is passing legislation without lengthy debate good?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The Repukes were trying to force their views on Obama, like they were used to doing to the Dems when they were in power. Obama simply reminded them who had won the election.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    You do realize we live in a republic.

    Obama is not king nor does he have any power to force what he wants through the congress.

    How do you know that what he wants passed with out resistance will work?

    Point being?

    Obama is not king
    No, we the guy who thought he was king left town 4 days ago.

    nor does he have any power to force what he wants through the congress.
    True. But, he does have the power to put his ideas on the table and does not have to put dumb, ignorant ideas from the Repubs on the table because he knows they don't work.

    How do you know that what he wants passed with out resistance will work?
    We don't. But they do make more sense. AND they are legal.

    That is just group think talking points. Obama is doing the exact same crap as Bush.

    How are the republican ideas ignorant or dumb? which of his ideas are better?

    Which of his ideas make sense? Most of the garbage he is pushing through is not Constitutional but you should already know that.

    The American people have spoken and brought the Republicans this:

    President Obama

    Senate 59-41 DEMOCRATS

    House 256-178 DEMOCRATS

    Supreme Court 5-4 DEMOCRATS

    Quite the majority which will lead to quite the legislative victories....for DEMOCRATS.

    Wasn't it Navy Pride who claimed that the GOP were going to "shock the world" last November 4th?

    Agreed. I do not so much want to see the Democrats or the GOP succeed . I want to see America succeed for a change. Piss on all their party politics first crap and lets fix the country. For that we can not let just one party ram rod through a package claiming national crisis so don't look just vote. There was a weird thing on TV yesterday that they do not want to use the stimulus package to fund Pell grants but have 300 million marked for condoms. Yes that's right 300 million dollars worth of rubbers. So if any of you out there are unemployed rubber makers things may be looking up at least for you. Maybe they plan on bailing out the Nevada cat houses or something. Plus apparently there is money earmarked for the Arts. I do not see how 300 million dollars worth of rubbers and funding the arts is going to save the economy.

    Truthfully I can see not using the money to fund Pell grants either. I believe college education aid to be important but it does not really qualify as stimulating the economy as in job creation and rebuilding our important private sector industries and this is what this money is supposed to be all about. But I would rather see some money go to Pell grants and other schooling loan programs rather than condoms and the Arts.

    This bill needs to be investigated closely to make sure the politicians are not trying to fund their own useless pet projects for their campaign contributors. I really believe that this a period of time that we should watch all our elected officials very closely and they if they use this period in our history when average people are being wiped out as an excuse to pull more party politics then we should just clean house the next election on both parties. get rid of all of them,

    Do you honestly think "the majority" has a handle on economics or constitutional law to understand who they should vote for?

    This election for me was proof positive we should not embrace Universal Suffrage.

    Use facts to show I hate the Constitution instead of emotional rhetoric please.

    I lose if Republicans or Democrats get elected so yeah I'm tired of letting ignorant fools choose who wins and who loses in life.
