    1. Your opening sentence claimed the election was not decisive.

    2. The election was decisive, and when it is so overwhelmingly decisive, and historic in its result, it marks a tidal shift in the citizen's political mood.

    3. That decisive win can/might have just enough Dems running for cover in the Senate on key votes (going along with R's)... for they see the writing on the wall. Perhaps not. Then we have Obama's Veto Pen. Dems just might vote to cover their asses, knowing Obama will veto said legislation.

    4. Nobody will know until it's been played out, for NOBODY could have forecast the defeat handed D's thanks to Obama. It was unfathomable 2-years ago.

    5. Nobody could have foreseen a political uprising from the Right... for it hasn't happened in this manner in my many decades of following politics. It marks uncharted territory, and the decisive win on Nov. 2 reflects that monumental shift. It took a mere 2-4 years depending on how you look at it. The decisive 1994 win took 40-years.

    6. But to our argument about the usage and meaning of the word "DECISIVE", points 3, 4 & 5 don't mean squat.

    Contrary to your statement, the election was decisive; from the State houses, governorships, and the House and Senate.

    What results from the decisive election is another story that we can only surmise, for I'm not clairvoyant. Are you?

    The election: D E C I S I V E... and H I S T O R I C.

    No, lame ducks are generally feathered, with wings, and a beak, Obama's just a crappy president.
    "To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)

    It wasn't, for the reasons I've clearly stated.

    You: Completely ignoring my rather lengthy post where I laid out just how wrong you were, responding only to the one-liner that I posted in response to someone else.

    Repeating yourself over and over and over with no substance to back up your repetition may qualify as a worthy argument in your mind, but to me all it means is that you've got precicely Jack and ****.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    ROTFLOL... you enjoy having your pants pulled down and your ass spanked I see.

    Your lengthy post was a throat clearing smoke screen; nothing more.

    I repeat myself because it's the core of the argument based on yer werdz 'n yer sentanz.

    Election won decisively. End of story. Whatever happens after is moot in this argument.

    You into more B&D.

    Waiting...

    PS. Precisely, not precicely.

    Re: Is Obama a lame duck?

    Well, then, you should have no trouble whatsoever addressing what I said. If it's that easy to see through, it should take no effort at all.

    Sticking your fingers in your ears and going LA LA LA does not constitute an appropriate rebuttal.

    Re: Is Obama a lame duck?

    The election was decisive, and historic because it was so decisive. The One got his ass spanked hard.

    If not a decisive victory, then what the hell was it? And again, you stated the following:

    The Republicans did not decisively win the election.
    Since that Pelosi-Biden-Obama-styled gaffe, you've been full throttle on the smoke screen and Spin-O-Matic.


    It ranks right up there with:
    Stand up chuck... Oh my Lord what am I say'in... hey everyone stand up for Chuck...
    and
    "We did not lose the election because of me"
    and
    "Insert one of many Obamaflubs... perhaps an Obama bow-wow-wow for the fine performance!"

    Re: Is Obama a lame duck?

    I explained why I think the Republican victory wasn't decisive and wasn't historic.

    You've utterly failed to respond to the points I've raised beyond LOL DECISIVE.

    When you get around to actually addressing what I've said, I'll be interested to read it.

    And you have the gall to recommend a remedial reading course to me?

    ROTFLOL... your prognostications and spin about the post-election possibilities mean nothing about thee election; the decisive and historic nature of the win.

    Before you attempt to flame someone, first be sure the nozzle isn't pointed in your very own mug.

    Yes. I believe Obama will be a 1 term president.

    He's alienated far too many Americans.

    Oh, wait, I get it.

    You keep throwing meaningless tripe at me, rather than actually responding to what I actually say because at some point you figure I'll go away and let you have the last word.

    Well, that makes a lot more sense.
