How can you f up nothing

They don’t do anything but reactionary policies against progress

They don’t believe that the environment is in danger

They think the country is free of racism, poverty, and disease

They ONLY do things to help and aid the rich to maintain their advantages…that’s ALL they do

That's what they were elected for

Yikes. All you did was repeat what you heard on MSNBC. I want to launch a kickstarter campaign for you and those like you, to teach you how to reason and think for yourselves, and to use logic. God knows the public schools aren't doing it.

Only if Republicans can backseat or drop altogether their 'social' agenda and focus solely on conservative economic and governance issues.

Doubtful.

The loons heavily populate both parties.

I tend to agree with you. The last rousting the GOP experienced put them into some kind of reckless stupor to try to win back minority and women voters. They don't realize that all they have to do is do right by everyone, and the rewards will come. Shrink government, stop worrying about gay marriage and all that garbage - those are state issues anyway.

They have the Senate for two years under the end of Obama's lame duck reign. IMO the only "plan" is the one that has been in place for the past six years - be the party of "No".

This is all just a step towards securing the White House in 2016. To that end the partisanship will get turned up a notch and the rhetoric will increase in volume. Worse, I think that the opposition is so disenfranchised by Obama at this point that the fight has been taken out of most of them.

At this point neither party has a valid platform - other than going after the other party and nitpicking at the same old issues that have haunted us for the past fifty years ( abortion, gay marriage, etc ).

Having said that, if the Republicans will STOP signing contracts with Grover Norquist and actually try to fix the economy ( which will mean addressing the failure of supply side economics ) I might well end up posting threads praising the progress. While I deeply hope this is the case, my mind and heart both doubt it will occur.

All politicians do this on a daily basis--they try to fix things that aren't broken.



They don’t do anything but reactionary policies against progress


You and I have different definitions of progress, so your statement is subjective at best. Of course, if you looked at the stack of not-voted-on bills on Harry Reid's desk, you might sing a different tune. They do things, just not things that you agree with (and, often enough, me).



They don’t believe that the environment is in danger


Not true. Most just don't buy into the farce that is the fabricated AGW alarmism. You obviously disagree, and that's okay, but don't paint with such a large, ignorant brush, because there's a difference between caring for the environment and giving billions of dollars to a federal beaurocracy that doesn't do anything in a timely manner. Just because a party is (generally) against unproven hypotheticals (AGW) and the power of the EPA doesn't mean what you claim.



They think the country is free of racism, poverty, and disease


Wrong again. I'm seeing a pattern.



They ONLY do things to help and aid the rich to maintain their advantages…that’s ALL they do

That's what they were elected for


Again, you're suffering from broad-brush disease. The two main parties differ on their approach on how to help the economy along. The Dem's approach has done nothing of substance except keep the poor man down, both in economic status and in motivation to better their lives. They keep way too many relying on gov't assistance, which inhibits the betterment of one's self and makes it hard to break out of 'the system.' Just because Repubs have a different approach doesn't mean that they only focus on the rich. Of course, getting rid of tax subsidies and loopholes is a big hope of mine, but so far neither party (that includes Dems) seems to desire such an approach beyond lip service.

If all they do the next two years is say 'no' to Obama and stop his policies then I will consider that a success. In fact, I would venture many of the people who elected the Republicans elected them for just this reason.

I am thinking that Obama will become 'President No'. Can't you see a veto pen poised already?

Anyway....
The Republicans were not the party of 'No' for the first two years of Obama's presidency.... he had a Democratic Congress. A free reign for two whole years.... we got Obamacare. The Republicans didn't block that, did they?

To effectively stand against something, one must actively be standing for something else. Just opposing to oppose? Well that's what three year olds do. In this case we're dealing with three year olds with enough power to destroy or rescue our Nation.

The misinformation involved in American politics is mind numbing. The POTUS is only one link in a chain of four levels of power. The Senate, The House, The Executive, and the SCOTUS. People are so fixated upon this one link that they are losing sight of the fact that the other three chains are failing equally.

Not to mention "Executive Order Man".

If people thought Washington was a mess before, I fear we've seen nothing yet.

Could be a very stressful two years.

I have said this elsewhere. We are headed towards a constitutional crisis.

Perhaps that is for the best. The electorate needs a wake-up call.

No… they didn't. The billionaire oligarch feudal lords have battled it out, and a few new faces are heading to the jousting tournament in Washington.

These people didn't "win." Their Lords emerged victorious in last night's game of thrones.

The Obama abuse of EO's is a myth. At his current rate he'll wind up somewhere around the same number as Grover Cleveland.

While I agree that not only are all three failing equally, and in fact think it goes much farther, include state governors and government, I was a bit taken aback this morning, when the news stated that Obama was already poised to act on illegal immigration, and one other issue, with his power of EO.
So, he isn't even going to give the house or senate a chance?

You've missed the point. It's not about what he has done, but what he is likely to do moving forward.
