    About race!

    What evidence to you have to accuse them of doing this with racial motivation?
    A sense of American history and a thinking brain.

    Because he was the republican nominee that I'm pretty sure that she wanted to be president.

    The rest I'm sure you can put together from there.

    Look, does Obama control what bills are introduced in and voted on by the House of Representatives? Of course not. 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.
    Do you only care about the house or do you care that Reid won't let bills from the house get voted upon? Is that OK with you? Isnt that Democratic obstructionism?

    She was talking about Obama. Romney had nothing to do with her post.

    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.
    A degree of opposition does NOT automatically equate to a much LARGER degree of opposition.

    NO president has faced this degree of opposition since the Civil War. For instance, nearly half of ALL filibusters of presidential nominees in all American history have been since Obama first took the Oath of Office. Just because you personally (and most people on the Right) want to believe that it was just as bad for other presidents doesn't make it so. No president since the Civil War has faced this level of opposition.

    there is also reconciliation: the senate and the house combining their versions of bills to pass as a complete packege.

    why is that never an option for this congress?

    I oppose Harry Reid's politics. I must be a racist white woman who is racist against a white man.
    Good one! I don't discriminate. I hate most politicians equally.

    They have often said no to their own policies and their own bills just because the President accepted or advocated them. WTF do you call that?
