    Amazing though isn't it.

    Dems win vast majorities in both houses.

    Conservatives: Not a mandate to push their evil Agenda.

    Republicans win a significant victory, fail to take back the senate though.

    Conservatives: Mandate to repeal EVERYTHING.

    Did you get the election results in your country? Republicans captured 628 state wide offices and 65 House seats, historic by any standards! I suggest better research on your part to actually find out what happened in this country on Tuesday night. The state elections show the will of the people and yet you don't call it a mandate?

    I see strawmen walking

    The GOP is better off having the dems running the senate

    a GOP senate cannot pass stuff over an Obama Veto

    A Dem senate cannot pass stuff over a GOP filibuster

    GOP can run against Dingy Hairy and the underqualified Boy wonder in 2012

    Re: 2010 Midterm Results Discussion

    what's next:

    the bush tax cuts

    they expire FOR EVERYONE in about FIFTY days, january 1

    the party STILL in power is on record a thousand times---america CANNOT AFFORD to raise taxes on the middle class IN TIMES LIKE THESE

    the point---the party STILL in power is COMPELLED to act, it CAN'T punt this troublesome topic to the NEW house majority, tho the congressional cowards would like to, because of the JANUARY ONE deadline

    so, what's it gonna be, progressives?

    tax cuts for SOME or ALL?

    in other words, are you gonna TAX THE RICH, your raison d'etre, or NOT?

    well, it's quite clear, for those who can see a future as foreseeable as december cold, that the LOWER HOUSE, with FORTY SEVEN dems on record in favor of extending the tax cuts to ALL americans, afraid to raise the excise on ANYONE, will work in accord with the solid republican rump to keep the lower rates for EVERYONE

    there are FIVE dem senators on record---jiltin joe lieberman, stiffneck ben nelson, bye bye evan bayh, bluedog byron dorgan and BUDGET CHAIR kent conrad (the gatekeeper's right hand man)---insistent on NOT raising taxes a PENNY on a SINGLE american citizen

    y'know, IN TIMES LIKE THESE

    so, there ya go, as transparent as tomorrow

    the house and senate in LAME DUCK must MOVE to extend em all

    and it will then go to obnoxious obama's office

    whatcha think the presidential putz is gonna do?

    LOL!

    hey, if YOU can't see two moves ahead, that's one thing

    but when the obnoxious obama is EQUALLY obtuse and oblivious, well, that's quite ANOTHER

    19 state houses swung Republican in this election.

    You're either being obtuse, or you just don't get it.

    There was a mandate, alright. There was a mandate to chill with the Liberal, Socialist bull****.

    I don't know if you noticed, or not, but more than 75% of Americans opposed Obamacare. The mandate was out there, long before this election took place.

    But, you're not an American, so we don't expect you to understand.

    Context is everything.

    Some people oppose it because it didn't go FAR ENOUGH.

    I'm not American. So I can actually look at things objectively and not get caught up in your rediculous partisan hackery. Which you excel at by the way.

    Most people oppose it outright, period, end of story. Do you honestly think that the Dems were voted out, because people who thought that Obamacare didn't go far enough believed that the Republicans would take it as far as they want it to go? Get real!!

    Well, unfortunately, that isn't reality. I've yet to see you take an objective stance on anything.

    How can anyone that supports a bill, that authorizes the president to form his own private army, with zero congressional oversight, call himself, "objective"?

    That is false:

    A new AP poll finds that Americans who think the law should have done more outnumber those who think the government should stay out of health care by 2-to-1
    The poll found that about four in 10 adults think the new law did not go far enough to change the health care system, regardless of whether they support the law, oppose it or remain neutral. On the other side, about one in five say they oppose the law because they think the federal government should not be involved in health care at all.
    Source: Raw Story

    You also assume singular issues like a lack of getting the HC you wanted led to the results on Nov. 2nd, and nothing could be further from the truth. The top 2 issues are the economy and unemployment, and it's my opinion that waiting 2 more years to hope that you put a Republican in the White House won't be a winning strategy come 2012 (once those top 2 issues are considered). Americans are upset, but they want results. Being told to wait 2 years that maybe something will happen sounds rather ...well.... "hopey changey".

    so, 4 in 10 adults think the new law did not go far enough to change the health care system, regardless of whether they support the law, oppose it or remain neutral. Meaning you don't know which of those three groups the 4 comes from.

    1 in 5 oppose the law because they think the federal government should not be involved in health care at all. That leaves the other 5, who oppose it and want it repealed. So, 6 in 10 either don't want goverment invovled and want it repealed or simply don't want it and want it repealed. Last time I checked, 6 was more than 4.
