    on every piece of legislation that came out the past few years....perhaps if obama and the dems truly did shut them out of everything, and ignored them, maybe more would have gotten done and quicker.

    I will enjoy my free Health Care that doesn't bankrupt me, or get taken away from me because I can't afford rediculous premiums...

    I'll enjoy my better economy, better environment, better education and safer cities

    Can't collaborate from outside a closed, and locked door now can you?



    maybe, but now it is a demo problem.



    Bull.



    Yeah? Good for you. How many won?

    I'm at a loss to figure out any examples of the GOP controlled Congress making any meaningful efforts to collaborate with the opposition. Perhaps you'd care to back up your apparent claim that they did?

    None of the third party candidates I voted for won, but that wasn't the point of my voting for them anyway. I just don't want to give the GOP my vote for their coziness with the tea partiers and corporate CEOs, and for their sheer arrogance when they are in control, or the Dems who are so effin' incompetent when they are in control.

    All of which is completely and utterly dependent on the U.S. LOL

    You know, like Puerto Rico or Guam.

    Results quicker? Stimulus passed in February 2009. Quicker results? Gee, thought 3 trillion added to the debt and 4 million unemployed look like quick results. Apparently the people saw quick enough results by the way they voted last night. Not sure but it appears that math isn't a strong suit of Democrats. Republicans didn't have the votes to stop anything thus the Obama agenda passed and the results were voted on last night.

    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.
    When are we going to learn that it's not the government's job to have great ideas and vision....YOU are perfectly capable of doing that all by yourself. When did we get away from people being the ones who had great ideas and visions, instead of asking for a bunch of government officials to do it for us. Healthcare's messed up, the government will fix it for us....poor people let the government handle that....I don't want to be bothered with getting my own hands dirty, I'll just lex the gov't steal rediculous ammounts of money from everybody, and act like that's helping. GOVERNMENT CAN'T SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS, AND IT CAN'T HAVE YOUR IDEAS AND VISIONS FOR YOU! The ONLY solution is to reduce the size power and scope of the government until people have no choice but to do it for themselves, and those who can't can be given REAL charity by people who really care. The more we allow government into our lives, the more it takes away our personal responsibility, and ultimately our humanity. I'm not sure about you, but I'm not willing to turn THOSE keys over to the government, and I'll fight to keep em in my pocket. I'm not looking for republicans to be bi-partasan...that's what's gotten us in this mess, I want my republicans conservative, so we can get out.

    So which is it, Democrats tried to compromise with Republicans or didn't they? How do you explain Democrats outspending Republicans in this election? Guess it only matters when corporations that actually employ people and make payrolls spend their money instead of unions spending their workers' money!
