    Show me anywhere where Republicans attempted to be bi-partisan, or give any fresh ideas in this election or AT ALL in the last 2 years.

    Their only concern for the last 2 years was trying to paint the President as Satan.

    And now the talk is, instead of getting to work to find ways to get people BACK TO WORK, they're gonna go to work on Obama.

    Yep, party of great ideas and vision.

    Not a year and a half after a complete mandate of House, Senate, and Presidency......no, it hasn't.

    This is like being ahead 70-0 at halftime, and losing.

    Yes, yes I do, and that is the problem. When repubs reach out and the program fails, demo's that had a hand in it, pull completely out and blame the failure on the repubs. Just like NCLB.

    When demo's have power and fail, they still try and blame it on repubs blocking what they want to do. Even when they have monumental majorities in all three branches of government like they did for the past 2 years.


    Really, that's part of the problem, as I see it. Neither of the two major parties shows much effort to collaborate in a bipartisan fashion.
    Can't collaborate from outside a closed, and locked door now can you?

    One party gets control, then gets arrogant with its power, then gets kicked out by the voters.
    maybe, but now it is a demo problem.

    The GOPers and the tea partiers have shown a strong authoritarian streak in them as well.
    Bull.

    That's why I voted for third party candidates yesterday.
    Yeah? Good for you. How many won?

    Yes, the republicans have showed time and time again they aren't for big government! Everything's fine now that the republicans are in. Milk and honey. Why go to heaven if you've got it here?

    Oh gosh i feel all warm and fuzzy with your revelation!

    BTW didn't Newt and the republicans try this line of BS before? How'd that turn out?

    So Government shrunk during the Bush years?

    They submitted multiple budget and healthcare proposals to Obama that were roundly rejected. Obama even had the classy remark of "Look, I won the election" right to their faces in a way of telling Ryan, Boehner, etc, to STFU.

    What a liberal from Canada wouldn't understand is that 70+ percent of Americans were against the stimulus, the healthcare bill, cap and trade, and everything else this buffoon passed. He knew they would be, which is why he ram-rodded everything through WHEN DEMOCRATS HADN'T EVEN READ THE BILLS.

    Just search republican ideas for health care reform, and if you two are honest with yourselves, you will see how repubs were locked out of the process.

    Behind the Numbers - Early exit polls: top issues this election

    Public opinion on the subject appears to have turned more negative recently. Overall, more than half say they disapprove of the war in Afghanistan, while fewer, four in 10, approve.

    In the latest Post-ABC poll on the issue, in July 2010, 43 percent said, all in all, the war in Afghanistan was worth fighting, while 53 percent said it was not worth fighting.

    Can you back up anything you just said?

    Hardly I suppose since Cap and Trade was never passed.

    By the way. I'm not a Liberal or a conservative. IN FACT: I'm probably more conservative then liberal, but that doesn't mean I support a party as ****ty as the Republicans.

    Niether the Republicans nor the Democrats are parties that could ever represent me. They are pathetic excuses for Political parties and both deserve the shaft if you ask me.
