Boehner: What have I to fear?
Obama: The Democrats. It's what we call ourselves, sort of like a party. "America's Re-elected Executive" type thing.
Boehner: Yes, I've met them.
Obama: Yeah. Takes us a while to get any traction, I'll give you that one but, let's do a head count here: 332 electoral college votes in 27 states, a candidate who couldn't get elected with four BILLION dollars worth of SuperPAC money on his side, the loss of eight seats in the House of Representatives, a Senate that was yours to lose until your nominees decided to turn women into brood-mares for the State, 64 MILLION people of a 61% turnout voting for the Democrat, and you, big fella, you've managed to piss off every single one of them.
Boehner: That was the plan.
Obama: Not a great plan. When the voters blame, and they will, they'll blame Republicans.
Boehner: I have a filibuster.
Obama: We have a Biden.
Boehner: I thought the beast had wandered off.
Obama: You're missing the point. There's no throne. There is no version of this where you come out on top. Maybe the fiscal cliff comes, and maybe it's too much for us, but it's all on you. Because if we can't protect the country, you can be damned well sure we'll avenge it.

serpent_sky: Do they not understand that people, in general, want health care reform? And don't want to use visits to the emergency room (thanks, Mitt Romney) as their primary form of health care? I guess not.

They're absolutely determined to sink this country. It's ironic, considering all of their doom and gloom regarding the President's "agenda" to do that. Not that they could possibly be projecting anything....

But I really don't understand their plan. Piss off the entire country, when the blame obviously and openly falls on their own shoulders? How do they see that working out for them?


Because the only "news" of this their base will get is how the evil dems destroyed the economy. If only the heroic republicans could have cut taxes on the job creators...

Did the Democrats win back Congress? No, only eight seats. This is clearly a mandate for the people to support the Republicans and end once and for all the tyranny of Obama!

Or so the reasoning goes. Pretty twisted farked up reasoning, but reasoning nonetheless.

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.


I think they want to see how many times they can lose on Obamacare.

They lost when Obama won after campaigning for it.

They lost when it was passed.

They lost in 2010 when they couldn't get a majority to overturn it.

They lost earlier this year when it was deemed Constitutational

and the lost again when Obama was reelected on keeping it.

They've lost 5 times on it already. What is their goal?
