Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

freem..No one needs any make believe racist card. When 90% of the blacks vote against republicans they have a good reason. Minimum wage won, marijuana won and abortion lost. If the era of big government is over then you are for assisted suicide and are pro choice. Hogwash. You are for Big Government when it helps you take freedom from others.

It ain't Obama's inaction here at home we have problems with, precious.

It's his action.

How about just one atom of truth? Start with that. It's elemental.

Were they voting in "lockstep" when they (McConnell and company) voted with Harry Reid for cloture against Ted Cruz' filibuster, joined by Mike Lee and a few non-RINO others against Obooboocare?

No, that is the opposite of lockstep.

Again, try at least some truth for a change.

Your continuous lies have cobwebs on their cobweb's cobwebs.

And as for obstruction, that was the stated strategy by the republican leadership - vote in lockstep, give the president NOTHING, then blame him for inaction. This has been reported over and over - witness the famous Caucus Room restaurant meeting of the pubbie leadership on the night of Obama's first inauguration...Boener, Ryan, McConnell, Gingrich, Luntz, et al...they made no bones about it - their goal was to obstruct, then blame the other side. That's not my opinion, it is a widely reported fact.

Freeman - The senate will need 60 votes to put a bill on the presidents desk, a point made quite clear by the pubbie's recent record use of the filibuster. And, as I've pointed out before, most -not all, but most - of the bills Harry didn't bring to a vote were "poison pill' bills the house repubs knew wouldn't pass, but they had their intended effect - blame Reid.

Then there's the infamous "racist" card. Nice work amos57usa. Did you watch the elections?

Did you pay attention to who was elected?

You guys have to stop this crap, I mean come on, really?

I can't wait to get immigration reform because you know what?? Latinos are social and economic conservatives. There are already have young Latino leaders moving up the ranks in the conservative movement. Young African Americans, young women of all ethnic backgrounds. They are going to make a difference. To quote Bill Clinton on the eve of signing the republican welfare reform bill, " the era of big government is over"....

hville, even the democratic senators are miffed at Harry Reid for not bringing ANYTHING but appointments up for a vote.

What did they pass? Immigration Reform bill that had only token border security legislation.

Come on, start looking at the facts. The democratic leadership blocked everything so they would not have to defend their votes.

Gridlock?? At least the Congress will put bills on the President's desk and he'll have to defend his passage or veto. That's regular order.

The party with the racist is the GOP of course that's why minorities vote against them. The republican voter suppression (treason) sure isn't done to stop republicans from voting and freeman is back to tell us water isn't wet again.

A few seats turned red as usual but abortion laws lost while minimum wage and marijuana laws won. So who won the election. If wolves eat your sheep you buy a license to shoot one. This is a government program that right wingers don't want? More dry water.

If a 90 year old man is creating a disturbance and hurting your business you call the cops when he won't stop.

Nobo..It's not your death that concerns me. The question is do I decide like in Oregon or do the christians get to decide for me like in Michigan. This is one of the many reasons I have had to vote against the GOP.

No they don't. It's a lame duck session.

The next few months are critical to congress. The republicans have the ball. Lets just see how they play it.

Seriously, why are you lefties so stupid?

The "gridlock" was 380 bills still in Harry Reid's pocket. Not read, heard, considered, or voted on.

And why do you so seldom say anything consisting of any truth?

Posted 141 days ago.

So the Repubs have the Senate. Look for more of the same gridlock - after their record-setting use of the filibuster since Obama came in, they can expect plenty of the same from the Dems, and even if they manage 60 votes on something the President doesn't like, he'll veto the bill anyway. Same music, different band...

Jaxspp just looks for the silver lining I'd guess. It's an admirable trait.

Jaxsap isn't nearly articulate enough to tell us how he got to be so stupid or why he's a Democrat.

He's most adept at showing and demonstrating that stupidity...which coincidentally and simultaneously, explains why he's a Democrat.

The reasons for the Republican gains are not voter ID laws, racism or any other half baked ideas the left comes up with.

Simply put, the democratic base was not motivated to turn out because they don't feel the need to perpetuate the lack of action taken by their party. Harry Reid has obstructed congressional action for years. Members of his own caucus have complained that they can't defend their votes because they've not taken any. So they have to go home and defend doing nothing. You can't pin that on the Republicans.
