The dems were SCARED TO PASS certain bills for fear of voter retribution, Dont' claim the GOP could stop them, if they could have they WOULD HAVE NOW AS WELL.

The Dem's forced through bills AFTER the election when it didn't matter in terms of reelection.


Period, looking at it any other way is folly.
I countered your points, I included some sources. And you claim I am the one who "who refuses to look at reality objectively"?

Come down (or is it up) to West Virginia and we can discuss this over beer on a freezing cold front porch....I don't think I'm the one who's objective here

I think this has been the most destructive Congress ever by passing a healthcare bill that the majority of Americans did not want.

Absolutely, unless you like watching citizens die needlessly in commercial airlines, I guess that seems sporting to a liberal.

Did the war stop that, or did increased security? I think you know the answer. And what did Iraq have to do with any of our airline security issues in the first place?

So Pres. Obama was elected to save the country from the Democats in Congress?? It was when the Dems. took Congress that things went intot eh crapper, not when Pres. Bush and the Reps were in control. They do things that put us into a position to fall, but it wasn't until the Dems. started taking over that things actually fell. I know that these facts make you uncomfortable, but you still need to face them and accept that it was the response to possiblility of the Dems. being in charge that drove free enterprise to pull back.

I consider job creation that costs $400,000/job failing, but it's not so much Pres. Obama failure, as much as it was Congress' failure.

How many planes with passengers have targeted civilian and government targets since? I think you know the answer.

Iraq supports terrorism and mass murder of whole families, is one to assume you do as well?

They're working that cap-tax and other things in through regulation. Constitutional powers and their limits mean nothing to Progressives. They don't like the Constitution and will NOT obey it.
It's Marx they look to.

Think I'm kidding? NOT
Think I'm wrong? Definitely NOT.

I would include a funny mustache wearing guy from distant history who was also very productive until it caught up with him.
