    If you want to change the discussion to earmarks, you are going to be disappointed as well because there is very little difference in earmark amounts from the two parties.

    Btw, why no avatar? Are you keeping the spot blank until my selection for you is made in a few months per our wager?
    I'' hit you right back with who was it again that passed the extention of the Bush tax cuts ?? Was it the Democrats that controlled all of government when they passed that ??

    They hate that question, because they didn't need a single Republican to do that .. there was "NO" vote needed .. those cuts would have ended as per the deadline on them. But the Democrats passed the extention because they wanted to.

    Because it has become impossible to pass bills in Congress with a simple majority.

    ElCid I keep asking you this and you haven't answered so maybe you just can't but I'll ask again: give me specific polices from Obama that show him trying to institute communism.

    As usual, I see you are right on top of things:

    "Congress approved the most significant tax bill in nearly a decade late Thursday, overcoming liberal resistance to continue for two more years tax breaks enacted under president George W. Bush and to provide a fresh boost of federal support to the tepid economic recovery.

    The package, brokered by President Obama and Republican leaders in the wake of the November elections, angered many Democrats, who have long argued that the Bush tax cuts were skewed to benefit the wealthy. But their last-minute campaign to scale back the bill's benefits for taxpayers at the highest income levels failed, and the House passed the measure 277 to 148, with 112 Democrats and 36 Republicans voting "no."

    Now, you were saying????

    Re: Poll: 71% shun GOP handling of debt crisis

    I gotta say, it is starting to look more and more likely that the GOP actually will intentionally destroy the economy. It would be unimaginably insane, and even a week ago I would have bet any amount of money that despite their idiotic rhetoric, they were not actually that stupid. But now I'm really not so sure... It is starting to look like they really might do it. The Republican party is in shambles. They appear to be completely incapable of doing their jobs at all. They're mired in this ridiculous infighting between the right wing and the barking-mad-flat-out-too-dumb-for-a-job-with-that-level-of-responsibility ultra right wing and they are no longer even able to put forward an agenda at all. They can't come up with a bill the majority of them support, they can't support anybody else's bill... They are literally a failed party and we are facing the very real danger that in a two party system when one of the parties collapses it can bring the whole system down with it.
