Alright....I'm game.  At least you're not talking about rape or immigrants or Beghazi or the deficit.  It's a good change, something plausible....we can work with this!

Ladies and Gentlemen, this may very well be the turning point for the GOP.

/seems unlikely though

Yes because once people realize they cannot be dropped due to preexisting conditions and can find catastrophic coverage despite that and not fall into abject bankruptcy well that just means they'll be done right outraged.

...keep farking that chicken GOP, the only reason you haven't been demoted to regional party yet is because you gerrymandered your way into the house.

By 2080, the Republicans will be celebrating their 1000th attempt to repeal Obamacare.

I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, which is why I seldom use the ignore list, but this guy is just a waste of oxygen. For years now I've waited for him to say something sensible but eventually you have to give up.

BTW, it's not that I'm being ultra-partisan. It's that he's actually retarded. Scratch that - retarded people tend to be sweet, decent folks. McConnell is just an asshole.

/dnrtfa because I'm sick and tired of reading this man's quotes. He could cure cancer tomorrow and I might not read that article, either.

He's not retarded.  He's just a farking asshole.

A retarded person doesn't know when they're being a douche bag.  Mitch KNOWS what a sack of shiat he is.

If people wanted ObamaCare repealed, they should have voted for Romney.  He didn't win, so I can't see where this is supposed to be headed.

I predict that the GOP will regret naming the largest healthcare legislation in U.S. history "Obamacare".

I don't believe the presidential election was solely decided on a single issue, but maybe I'm giving the American people too much credit.

2012 will go down historically as the year the GOP did almost everything wrong.  They even worked extra hard and managed to screw up entirely new things in order to have more working against them.  It was the year that if they had ever had a latent desire to run a Klansman and the cadaver of HItler, that would have been the the year to do it.

It wasn't a single issue year.  It was, largely, a year where every single issue the GOP managed to screw up.

They doubled down on the win in 2010 thinking they still had that white base when the reality is the Dems just fell asleep at the wheel for 2010.

Don't expect a repeat

What other issue has the GOP been talking about for the last 4 years for voters to consider?  I can't think of any.

I am 100% in agreement. 4 years and THAT was the product you put forward? Shows you what shambles the GOP is in when that election was basically gift-wrapped for them and they still lose big. Democrats can score it was a win but I've seen the last 4 elections basically be less of a 'this guy's our guy and the best choice' and more of 'lesser of two evils / this guy will probably suck at the job less'.

It's because they bought into their own hype. They completely ignored objective reality in favor of their own narrative and then were surprised by the results.

It was like when RAND PAUL went to that historically black college, and was surprised that the students there were knowledgeable about the history of the NAACP and the founders of it being Republicans. He honestly thought he'd get the same reaction from them as he does with his tea party base.

The republicans are doing everything they can to hinder the implementation of Obamacare. In congress, they're trying to limit the funds used to help people enroll in the exchanges. In the states, some governors are blocking the medicaid expansion.

A lot of people and hospitals are going to be hurt by these actions. I don't understand why they think this is going to be winning issue for them.

Eh?  Are you a conservative?  Obama is not the worst president since Carter x1000.  Given the circumstances, he's done a pretty good job and people put him back in office for it.  I don't think the GOP ever had a shot, as they weren't offering anything.

You're right. I uses to fall on the right of center side of the fence, but I've just seen them be so gd retarded that I'm choosing basically who I think will suck less at the job and that's not the way I want us to continue.

Yeah yeah, 'change the process yourself man if you don't like it.'

I don't think that's why he went.  I think he was appealing to his Tea Party base -- these people get off on confrontation.  It was just another "in your face" move to appeal to assholes.

I don't think it was why he went, just how it ended up. He seemed honestly confused that he wasn't getting the expected reaction.

Romney ran probably the worst campaign I've ever seen and was horribly outmatched in nearly every facet by Obama and squeaked out a win 51-47. Bush in 2000 would have most likely been able to beat him, not saying that's better, I'm just saying the republicans stepped in it so deep with their ticket/campaign that they gave themselves no chance even when they should have carried the election by 5+% (yes, I know electoral college and all).

Yea, you must be a conservative.  Your narrative is all off.  First you call the election "gift wrapped."  It wasn't.  If anything, thinking it was "gift wrapped" was one of the GOP's major problems.  They're out of touch.  Their perception of Obama and how other Americans view Obama is not objective.  Secondly, you call the election a "squeaker."  It wasn't a landslide like 2008, but he beat Romney handily by modern standards.  Citing Bush 2000 really drives the point home, as Bush won the election with a *negative* margin; that's a squeaker, and even on a bad day Obama is better candidate than either Gore or Kerry -- both of whom gave Bush the election with their own incompetence.

Don't expect a repeat of the GOP doubling down, or of the Dems dropping the ball in the next midterm?  Because, knowing how the two parties operate, both of those things seem kind of inevitable.

i have just a notion that the democrats dont have any new faces themselves

Indeed.

Also, World War 3 is in there somewhere in the 2050s. And by 2079, the Republicans will have already taken over, as evidenced by the look of the court's jury and the drugged guards who shoot people for no good reason.

I believe a more accurate word would be HOPES. He HOPES that Obamacare will dominate so that people forget about all those Right-Wing senators voting against the wildly popular universal background checks, their continuing atrocious stance on basic human rights, and their constant wasting of time so that the freshman senators could waggle THEIR dicks too.

I came to that conclusion a while ago, it's been a long time since I cared what that waste of space says.

The fact that he keeps getting elected is evidence that America isn't exceptional at all.

I wish life had an ignore feature, that would be awesome.
