Policy wise, Obama talks a lot about a "new direction", yet Obama has voted with Pelosi and Reid more than 90% of the time. Is that the new
direction, going with Democrat dinosaurs that brought the congress to single digit approval ratings? Is that change? Is that getting away from old
Washington politics that he so "skillfully" blasted Hillary with?
Republican president 20 out of last 28 years.
Republican controlled Congress 1992 -2006.
Yes I would say that voting with Pelosi and Reid is a new direction. The current state of affairs in this country is tied almost directly to the
Repulican agenda over the last 30 years. Good or bad, where we are at today is thanks most in part to the Republican party. Why dont you check and
see who has moved through the most legislation over the last 30 years. Also, how is a Democratic congress that has only had a slight advantage for
less than 2 years supposed to get any of their legislation through when the President can veto any thing that doesnt tow the Repulican line and there
is not enough of a majority to get 2/3 to override a veto?
YES, blame the Democrats, they have not had the majority in this country over the last 30 years. How can you possibly say that they are the ones who
have been making all the decisions. Please explain to me how that happens. And by all accounts, things are not going well in the country right now;
dollar dropping value, stock market stagnant, mortgage crisis, unemployment up(based on real numbers), consumer spending down, huge govt deficit, war
in multiple middle eastern countries, over strained military, corporate bailouts happening at an alarming rate(not to mention that they are bailouts
of BANKS, which is a bad, bad sign).
I repeat, the current state of affairs in this country is the direct result of the Republicans. Please show me how this is wrong.
