Well I strongly feel that we need to create a RINO party because a lot of folks are moderates that are forced to vote based on wedge issues rather than have actual representation. Let the tea baggers, bible pounders, birthers, and Ayn Rand worshipers keep the GOP.

kingoomieiii: Are you farking kidding me.


To be fair, he probably had to tack that nonsense on to get the rest of his party to take their fingers out of their ears, if only for a few minutes. They aren't exactly good listeners when the message isn't "PRAISE BE TO REPUBLICAN JESUS! Tax cuts for everyone!"

Ambivalence: kingoomieiii: Uh, no, they had 59 as of Ted Kennedy's death in August 2009. And before that, they didn't have 60 until Al Franken was sworn in JULY 2009. So, a whole month of a filibuster-proof senate.

Which just made assholes like Joe Lieberman and a couple others realize they had ALL the power to extort the democratic caucus for consessions for THEIR states or THEIR agendas so yah, that 60 votes wasn't worth shiat.


In strictest terms, the Democrats did indeed have a 60 seat majority for about 3 and a half months between Obama's inauguration and Brown's election. But you're right that Lieberman, Nelson, and others used their Blue Dog position to dilute as much of the agenda as possible, while Obama held out false hope that Republican moderates like Collins and Snowe would play ball with him on at least some votes.

I Said: kingoomieiii: And Bush also blamed President Obama for much of the conflict.

"His first year could have been a year of enormous accomplishment had he focused on things where there was more common ground," he said, arguing that Obama had made a "purely political calculation" to run a sharply partisan administration.

Are you farking kidding me.

Every time a republican opens up about their nuthouse base, they mitigate it with "And Obama's a real jerk, too"


Right? It's like they're trying to appeal to the people costing them the election...

He was so partisan he continued fighting the War on Terror in the exact same manner as Bush, extended the Bush tax cuts, and enact the republican's health care reform plan from the 90's.

Oh fark you, Jeb. It's not Obama's fault your party went full Teabag. The morons on your side were blaming him for everything from the recession to the missing car keys before he even took office.

clip - Lott was among those who urged Reagan to deliver his first major campaign speech in Philadelphia, Mississippi, where three civil rights workers were murdered in one of the 1960s' ugliest cases of racist violence. It was a ringing declaration of his support for "states' rights" - a code word for resistance to black advances clearly understood by white Southern voters.

Didn't the Democrats have 60 seats in the US Senate from January 2009 until Scott Brown's election in 2010? How do you filibuster with 40 seats? You need have your facts straight before you start calling people liars.

Uh, no, they had 59 as of Ted Kennedy's death in August 2009. And before that, they didn't have 60 until Al Franken was sworn in JULY 2009. So, a whole month of a filibuster-proof senate.


they didn't even have that because Kennedy was too ill to vote.

Marcus Aurelius: Nixon would be considered a communist.


Hell, Nixon did things (wage and price controls) which most liberals (including myself) would consider to be inappropiate uses of government power.

Well, and the whole "illegally spying on his opponents and then trying to cover it up" thing.

How so? If Franken wasn't seated until July of 2009 and Kennedy died in August of 2009, when was this 3.5 months of a 60-seat majority?

Obama was such a dick for putting forward an incredibly conservative healthcare reform plan, i know. How silly to focus on a problem that was already catastrophic in the 90's.
