Entrenched - Republicans make gains in the house...

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...105928920.html


When all the celebrating is done, America will wake up to the fact that Obama is facing the lamest duck presidency in the history of politics. The House is deeper entrenched, and the Republicans made gains in the Senate, though didn't flip it.

America got caught like a deer in the headlights, and voted for four more years of gridlock.

Scott Brown was not bi-partisan until Warren called him out on voting with his party more than 90% of the time despite his claim of being an independent. He was as bi-partisan as Mitt Romney who vetoed over 800 bills in Massachusetts and had over 700 overturned, many of those unanimously.

How bi-partisan are you really when you co author the Veterans Jobs bill and vote to block it after Obama came out in support of it?

Don't blame me for being ahead of the political curve. Calling Obama a lame duck is like saying the sun is going to rise tomorrow. I'm not sure what you think he is going to accomplish that he wasn't able to accomplish when the deck was more stacked in his favor.

Now if the rest of the Republicans can come around to this way of thinking, they may have a chance to run things again sometime this century.

She's far more partisan. The Rs are not that far right currently, despite how the socialist left paints them.

As to the left overriding a moderate R's vetoes in Mass. So healthcare costs rose I think around 27%, it runs red ink and requires federal Medicaid funds to bail it out. So much for Romney saying it was a state program only. Plus, I recently read he was going to still usher other states to go this route, even if he repealed Obamacare by EO ( which is the same thing the R accuses Obama of using to by pass congress.)

The good news is there is another challenge to Obamacare going to the courts because the SC failed to address a main point in the original case. Robert's claim of it being a tax also doesn't hold since it did not originate in the House, but the Senate. It also lacks a funding mechanism. Then there are about ten states refusing to set up healthcare exchanges. Mine is one of them.
Lots of R governors won too. You have NO mandate.
