Their notion that you can sabotage and defame a sitting, popular president by trying to pin a deep recession to him, lying, and obstructing has FAILED. It was a cynical and shamefully uncivil strategy. To my conservative colleagues, I say, try to be real colleagues, and we can get some things done for the country we share. If you try this crap again, you will get spanked.

Join us, and let's make the country better.

too bad the voters gave back the house to the republitards. How do they expect the country to change when they keep splitting the government.

Personally anyone who voted republican should be tried for treason. They're an enemy of the state.

This election has taught me to think that the Democratic Presidential candidate in 2016 will win.

Also that in 2014 the House will become a Democratic majority while the Senate expands their Democratic majority.

Obstruction and then lying that the President does not try to work along party lines has been exposed.

No. I see this as a clear signal that the people want a division of power, just as the Constitution intended. They want the sitting Congress to get off it's lazy ass and on it's feet, working at the job they were hired to do.
Woe be unto the House of Representatives if they continue to ignore the speed we are approaching the fiscal cliff. They had better get off the gas pedal and start hitting the brakes during the lame duck session, or there will be hell to pay in 2 years.

Who cares what the Constitution intended?! The Constitution can't intend anything anyway...

Voters need to turn two parties into one party.

Take a closer look. The banksters have already done that.

The problem is gerrymandering districts.
