More than a "shellacking" this time. This was a total repudiation of his policies, illegals acts with his magic pen and all the lies he has told.

So what. If republicans can cross party lines and get things done then that is what this country needs. But I doubt they can do that. No one in any party seems to want to compromise.

The House passed over 300+ bills that are sitting on Reid's desk. The obstructionist was Reid/dems in the Senate, in order to shield obama from bills he would have to veto and dem senators taking hard votes, like Keystone, which would have PASSED with bipartisan support

The days of big government will be over before you know it.

The landscape is improving. It's time for us to initiate even more change.
Aha! An anarchist posting! End big government, anarchy!

Anti-union, anti-philanthropy, pro-Republican Thomas Mellon and his billionaire sons, who virtually controlled the elections in Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh for decades, can you hear their cries from their graves?

One of the most interesting things I saw tonight was watching the media's reaction. The number of journalists who in the past nearly did somersaults in their effort to praise Obama were making fun of him, calling him a drag, and any number of things. Of how the tide has changed. My goodness.
