Want to take odds what course the Dems take next time the pendulum swings and they are the minority?  (hint:  last time they obstructed too).  It's the game.  Both sides do it when they are in the minority.  Give up the holier than thou attitude.

Actually it ratchets up a level with each successive passing of the White House to the other party.  However, with Obama being the half breed socialist Muslim usurper that he is, the GOP has pushed a little harder than usual this time around.

I still believe that the Democrats to some degree have an interest in governing.  The GOP, on the other hand, farks everything up on purpose and then says "See? government doesn't work!".  That's the fundamental difference.

As soon as the Feds bust down the doors of Congress and Arrest every single on of them GOP Rats that have publicly and basically said they are being terrorists by obstructing America and its economy and its peoples health,, then we will see the republicans start working for the people.

That also includes any politician who has plead allegiance to Americas number one enemy, Israel, as well.

/The feds can also pay a visit to all those red states that have ignored that abortion is legal, in order for the politicians who have practically banned abortion in those states to be also arrested.
//Maybe Rick Perry can be busted for his murder of 15 people in the fertilizer plant explosion due to his 'no regulations' pledges.

Work with the majority party to craft legislation that benefits the country, instead of throwing a temper tantrum?

Seriously, 37 (and counting) attempts to repeal Obamacare, numerous anti-abortion bills with no chance in Hell of passing, multiple partisan witch hunts, getting America's credit downgraded by refusing to raise the debt ceiling (to pay for spending THEY ALREADY AUTHORIZED) until the last minute...Does that sound like sane government to you?

Also, the only "Republican" in the last century who actually practiced fiscal responsibility was Eisenhower. All claims that Republicans are "fiscally responsible" are false.

cameroncrazy1984: Well he didn't say they were "good" ideas.


of course you're not going to think it's a good idea. If you thought they were good ideas you'd be a Republican. Just like if I thought Democrats had good ideas I'd be a Democrat! It's just simple logic! No one get's it wrong on purpose.

And yes Democrats are obstructionists when they are out of power. And yes Republics are more so when they are out of power. But that makes sense! If you think the government has the answer then you feel the need to keep it up and running if you think that government is the problem then you have no problem grinding it to a halt.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Well what else is the minority part suppose to do?!


It sounds like you sincerely believe that the only legitimate role for a minority party is to prevent the majority from accomplishing anything. How, then, is the government supposed to govern, as there is always a minority? Since you seem so dead-set against democracy and republicanism, what is your preferred form of government?
