    Is that right? Well, I guess you can think that. I think Romney was right on point when he used the term "47%" to identify the lost cause voters who are only interested in getting more free stuff.

    The fact is, they exist in even greater numbers today, and with the addition of the invaders from foreign countries the President is anxious to add to the public dole, the 47% is bound to grow significantly higher.

    The difference, sir, is that the bills that the Senate passed - like the immigration bill - were mostly bipartisan, whereas the (relatively few) bills that the House passed were never brought up for a vote unless Boehner knew that it had enough support from the Republicans for it to pass without Democratic support (see "the Hastert Rule")...which means that the bills passed by the House were not bipartisan.

    TB, do yourself a favor - look at both sides of the story, and see which side is committing more racist acts, which side actually does use racist dog-whistles on a weekly basis. Better yet, keep a record of racist acts and statements by both sides, and see which side's list gets much, much longer. And be sure to include the dog-whistle statements, because almost everyone knows them for what they are.

    See which side's list gets much, much longer...

    ...and bear in mind that a degree of racism by one side does not negate that side's right and responsibility to point out the much, much greater degree of racism by the other side.

    I'm eager to see how your list turns out.
    Face facts, both sides will do and say whatever it takes to win elections. It is really THAT simple.

    LOL,,, not at all. Been called names too many times to get upset about it anymore, and that's what I'd teach my kids. Sticks and stones now are a different story.

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

    We could go on all day.
    All presidents have experienced opposition ...that is how the system works. But Obama has experienced a level of obstructionism that is historically unprecedented.
    Of course you know this but you insist on playing your little game of selective memory.
    That's OK it just makes you look childish.

    The subject was not about bills passed, but about the head of the chamber not allowing votes, which is highly prevalent in the Senate. Reid won't let bills be voted on and you are Ok with that. No difference between the two.
