    That wasn't my point. My point was, what would you expect? Duh.

    Actually, I believe the goal was to do what they could to make sure Obama's liberal agenda would fail. It turns out they really didn't have to work that hard. On the other hand, Obama has had some considerable success with the Progressive Agenda that aims towards ruling the people by regulatory fiat.

    I suppose if you look for racism everywhere you go you will find racism everywhere you go.

    By the way, according to the poll most of the people on this thread believe it's not racist.
    I lived in Alabama for five years. Everything he said was correct.

    About race!

    What evidence to you have to accuse them of doing this with racial motivation?
    That's like asking "What evidence do you have that use of the word 'n***er' is done with racial motivation?"

    No, they worked together on one issue. Then they decided to try to repeal the ACA dozens upon dozens of times. They knew it wasn't going to happen, but they wanted to put on a show. It sure wasn't working together like adults. House Republicans instead chose to act like petulant children.

    What is the 'liberal agenda' exactly?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

But the GOP-controlled House has voted on a record low number of bills, and very, very few bills of actual importance. For instance, the Senate voted on and passed a BIPARTISAN immigration reform bill...but the GOP-controlled House won't even allow it up for a vote.

    That, ma'am, is obstructionism plain and simple. Obama has nothing to do with whether the House does or does not vote on a bill. It's not a matter of Obama somehow refusing to work with him - it's a matter of them refusing to work with him...and this was all decided upon the night of his first inauguration.
    None of them....?

    You're smarter than this. You really think Obama is the first POTUS to face opposition?

    Hey, remember when Bush wanted to privatize Social Security?

    Hey, remember when Clinton (via his wife) wanted to implement a healthcare reform plan?

    Hey, remember when the Democrats opposed Bush's tax cuts (which of course they "reconsidered" in 2012)?

    We could go on all day.
