    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Some schmoozing, some posturing and lots of positioning for the presidential race?

    For all those asking this question, you really didn't see the McConnell press conference did you?
    The guy is a big-time heavyweight compared to Boehner and is now the most important politician in the Nation .

    Not shockingly but there's one your missing from that list and that's Energy Policy. I actually think we'll probably get Keystone done before the year ends in some grand bargain like they did last time around. And I'll also guarantee there will be changes to Obamacare law, though I doubt it will be large. For one thing, I think there is a Veto proof majority to get rid of the Medical Devices Tax that's in it for one.

    Your country will become less and less relevant on the international stage.

    And we here in Europe get some comedy by watching inbred rednecks holding speeches in your parlaiment.

    You actualy elected a person because her main crudentials were that she used to "castrate hogs".........

    Besides all that I really dont care much. it will basicaly mean more laughts for us as we watch your country burn.

    Whilest we here are getting increasingly better at getting things done.

    With all the challenges our country faces, I hope we dont ever become the total failure Germany was. Im sure you will help us though with something like the marshall plan if we do...

    If the Rep. leadership is smart, they'll start calling the President to public negotiating sessions and put the spotlight on HIS actions/inaction. IMO, it's the only way that we'll see the President start working with Congress instead of treating them like his personal rubber stamp.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
