Grand_Moff_Joseph: one last time.
Weaver95: do these guys understand that they LOST the election? and not by a tiny margin either - they got a major blow out on almost all fronts. people who lose that badly shouldn't be acting as if they're running the show.
PreMortem: Functioning alcoholic. Only explanation.
FlashHarry: the republicans kept the house purely thanks to gerrymandering. they actually got fewer votes than the dems. but they've mistaken this "victory" (and completely ignored their drubbing in the presidential and senatorial elections) as a mandate for more derpbaggery. they are sorely misinformed.
mrshowrules: They've lost 5 times on it already. What is their goal?
ManateeGag: mrshowrules: They've lost 5 times on it already. What is their goal?didn't they also lose like 33 separate votes to over turn it?
hubiestubert: Hey, if you know you're going down, at least you can go swinging...
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Obama is using his reelection to say that people want Obamacare. Boehner is just using the fact that Republicans kept the House as proof that they dont.
sammyk: Really? I thought it was just more of the same obstructionism.
God Is My Co-Pirate: The thing is, healthcare is popular. Very popular. Once people get it, they won't ever give it up. Universal healthcare up here in Canada is politically untouchable for that reason.The GOP is trying to kill the AMA before it's fully implemented, before people realize what they'd lose if it's repealed. They don't want Obama getting the credit for a policy which will be staying around for a long time.
Somacandra: Clinton did

Dusk-You-n-Me: at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our country's entire economy. We can't afford it,I don't believe the guy who voted in favor of two tax cuts, two wars, and medicare part D has any credibility when it comes to concern over the debt.
Sybarite: hubiestubert: Hey, if you know you're going down, at least you can go swinging...I think Boehner may actually have a loaded God complex.
kronicfeld: The Stealth Hippopotamus: Clinton needed a strong third party to get into office.Add 100% of Perot's popular vote to Dole's and Clinton still carried the popular vote. And it wouldn't have been 100% if Perot wasn't around.
tallguywithglasseson: He didn't beat Dole to get into office
kronicfeld: I assumed the reference was to the 2nd term re-election so that was what I looked at.
