Obama has also ignored the mid-1990s welfare-reform law, allowing states to strip the “work” out of workfare . . .
    I know a lot think hyperbolic exaggeration to the nth degree works, but, it really just makes a candidate look sad and desperate. The only people it would have worked for already voted for him.

    They were, and nothing happened then either. It's called partisans! This is what's killing America today. People's party is more important than the law, the constitution and what's good for America.

    Which, tragically, is why we have the sad and desperate moron in office now that we do.

    Hyperbolic? Nah. Reasonable and well reasoned.

    I thought it was because republicans picked a poor candidate, ran a poor race, and don't really know what the real issues are. But passing the blame off others does seem to be the republican way.

    You are correct that Repubs wasted an excellent opportunity.

    Yes of course, don't interrupt the cheer leading with facts. You might get labeled.

    That they did. Obama should have been beaten. He was hardly in a position of strength. But the republican field was poor, and even with that they picked the guy most like Obama. And Romney ran a foolish campaign. As long as the approach by republicans is to be over the top, they will likely have serious trouble winning a national election.
