    The party of No is not mythical. It is what is left of what used to be a vibrant Republican party, now that the right-wing wackos control the party.

    Ooooh...so basically this is nothing more than a hyperpartisan buzzword, totally bereft of merit or substance that you are bandying about without so much as a care for intellectual honesty.

    Understood. And totally expected of you.

    I imagine back in 2006 when the democrats were attempting to block every agenda item of the republicans, you were calling them the Party of No, also? When Reid was crying defeat in Iraq and the democrats were opposing the surge, I imagine you were calling them the Party of No, too?

    No? Really? Whodathunkit?

    Re: BREAKING -- Reconciliation bill will have to go back to the House

    cbs poll yesterday: 62% want the gop to keep fighting this bill

    including FORTY ONE % of dems!

    Poll: Most Want GOP to Keep Fighting on Health Bill - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    never fear, america, we will

    and we will be rewarded immensely for doing so

    indeed, our rewards will be so great and coast-to-coast wide, most of this chimerical contraption will never become effect

    we lead IN PENNSYLVANIA by up to TWENTY POINTS

    we lead in MICHIGAN by up to TWENTY POINTS

    we lead in VERMONT by between SEVEN and THIRTEEN

    we lead in CALIFORNIA by a HALF DOZEN

    we lead in TENNESSEE by up to TWENTY

    we lead in ohio, in wisconsin, in iowa...

    RealClearPolitics - Latest Election Polls

    all of these states except for the green mountains represent gop pickups

    in FLORIDA (do you recall the 2000 presidential?) bill mccollum is a CINCH, leading by TEN PLUS

    do you know what numbers like this portend?

    do you appreciate the role these states play in presidentials?

    do you comprehend the effect a party's control of a state capital plays every 4 years?

    you don't suppose the people in all these states have been watching the health care debate, do you?

    party on, progressives

    represent, be proud!

    No... they were called a party of traitors, and with good reason.

    The Democrats were never attempting to block every agenda item of the Republicans...but when they did engage in silly stall tactics, I found their behavior every bit as childish and stupid as the Republicans here.
    Did every Democrat cry defeat in Iraq? Did every Democrat oppose the surge? No.
    It is the mentality of the Republicans in opposing things that they supported previously simply to be obstructionist that gives them their designation as the Party of No.

    Because it's not just a health care bill, its a budget reconciliation bill.

    Why do you think so many Democrats want them to keep fight it?

    Easy....they are looking like fools and obstructionists. The GOP is not appearing very professional in its stomp your feet and take away your checkers behavior and it is playing right into the Democrats hands.

    So since you shrilly caterwaul some hyperpartisan buzzword, it's now their "designation"? Oooooookay.

    Every Republican opposed this health care reform because it was a turd. They were doing what their constituents wanted them to do because, unlike democrats, republicans still understand they work for the people.
