It seems Obama is stunned to discover he isn't a dictator. I wish that someone on the R side had the stones to say "Barry, elections have consequences ... your side lost."

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WASHINGTON (AP) - Amid new warnings and fresh signs of strain, President Barack Obama and congressional leaders are entering a perilous debt-limit endgame. The president, declaring "enough is enough," is demanding that budget negotiators find common ground by week's end even as the Senate's top Republican gained followers for his own last-ditch scheme to avoid a government default. </div></div>

Hey. He's going to take it to the American people.

I think he meant to say, "I'm going to give it to the American people".

According to the latest Quinnipiac poll, Americans trust The Moron in the While House more the Republicans by a large margin of 45 to 38 so its time for the Stupid Party to fold its tent, put its tail between it legs and cower under the porch and pray that communism is better than its reputation and that our Master will forgive us for being so rebellious.

Perhaps they may understand civics a bit better than you, and understand that they won the majority in the House, but that the Senate, the other half of the legislative branch of government, and the executive branch, co-equal to the ENTIRE Congress, remain in Democratic hands.

The Democrats' having 'lost' half of one branch, while still controlling the other half of the legislative branch, AND in full control of the executive branch with a very strong veto power, does not put the GOP in charge of the government. Or, as polls show, on the side of popular sentiment.

Nice spin ... but, again, wrong.

The democrooks lost, handily, the senate races. They maintained control by default because they weren't all up for election at the same time.

They were in the minority. So the Dems could pass any legislation they wanted? Really????????????

Name one single vote that they - the GOP - didn't filibuster, ie, requiring 60 votes to pass anything.

They had 60 votes in the Senate, if you want to call Lieberman a reliable Democratic vote, for less than 2 months of the first two years. From about a week into July, when Franken was finally allowed to be seated, until the last part of August, when Kennedy died.

That's the sum total of the time they had 60 votes (except even then, Lieberman single-handedly quashed parts of the health care proposal that had great support in the caucus, including allowing older Americans the right to buy into Medicare earlier than age eligibility would allow).
