    That is entirely possible. But it is more than just that. I think besides stopping some of Obama's policies, they want the economy moving again and jobs made available. Obama and company really haven't concentrated on those and those were exactly why the voters elected Obama in the first place. It is my view if the Republican congress works on improving the economy over the next two years they will do fine in 2016, if not they will pay a price.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think it is here to stay too. But I could be wrong. But when everyone knows to include the president that 78% of those who voted are worried about their financial future and the nations, then his first thing out of his mouth is immigration reform when it should have been the economy. I do not think Obama realizes what is bothering most Americans. It sure isn't immigration reform. It is their pocket books.

    This is one of the skeletons in the closet the left needs to deal with. I'd like to think this election brought that home, but I doubt it-especially after the sad excuses Ive heard up to this point.
    You write, "when it inevitably comes down to that choice-freedom or the state, the liberal chooses the state." I'm a liberal, and I agree with you. Sometimes. If by "freedom" you mean, as just one example, the freedom to pollute at will--to pollute our drinking water or the air we breath--then absolutely, I choose the state.

    You see, you conservatives often have a highly pinched and selfish idea of "freedom." Your idea of freedom is the right to be irresponsible money-grubbing ****s at the expense of everyone else in the country. In those cases I choose the state, because it's the state that--when democracy is working--stands on the side of the common people against the powerful interests whose only concern is the money in their pockets.

    She might be in the White House until 2025.


    Okedoke.

    Let's see. Bush the first won the Presidency after a two-term of his party in the White House because voters wanted a third Reagan term. What do you think the odds are that in 2016 voters are going to want a third Obama term? Much less two terms of it.


    Ya'll are betting it all on Hillary because it's all you've got. Who's up next? Joe Biden? Elizabeth Warren?

    That's funny. I wonder if you noticed that the GOP has refused to consider any of the policies that Obama and the Dems have proposed to accelerate the economic expansion. The GOP even refused to extend unemployment benefits, which has one of the greatest "bangs for the buck" when it comes to federal spending to stimulate the economy.

    Here's hint: The GOP has purposely sabotaged the economy as a way of undermining support for Obama, and the American public is too stupid to understand that. We have some $3 trillion in infrastructure projects we could be funding at almost no interest, which would have a dramatic stimulus effect. But of course the GOP wouldn't even consider Obama's jobs program that would have done exactly that.

    Well, there's a new "scandal" every week in the right-wing fever swamps, but they never amount to a hill of beans. They turn out to be one make-believe bull**** story after another, kept alive only by constant repetition in the right-wing propaganda mills.

    In fact, Obama has had one of the most ethical administrations in living memory. No wars started based on lies! No swapping arms for hostages and lying about it! No paying hush money or firing special prosecutors for doing their jobs too well!

    Scandals? Hah! Just a lot of make-believe in the far-right media.

    Heck Yeah She Does! Nobody, but nobody, knows the struggles and travails of the regular American nor how to defeat them by getting banks to write their own regulation like uber-wealthy Harvard professors who utilize fake minority status to glide themselves up the socioeconomic stratosphere.
