Now that things have started to turn good for President Obama...like the economy, the huge success of the C.A.R.S. program...even most of the Reps in the House voted to expand it. Looks like he will get health care done, something that this country has been trying for the last 50 years and he will get it done...the hate from the right will just became stronger...those dbags rather see this country fail than succeed the Obama way, i say F them. We had to put up with their way of doing things for the past 8 year and where did that get us? the worst economic meltdown in a long time...now all the sudden they want us to believe they have all the answers..that they too have a health care reform..well where the f was that health care reform from 2000 to 2006 when they had total control...why are they now bitching about spending when the last 3 Republican presidents are pretty much responsible for most of our debt..so all the sudden they got the answers for that too... Bush cut taxes for the rich, it was all great...Obama cuts taxes for 95% of Americans..its a wasteful spending..

I agree. They would rather tear everything down than to acknowledge that anything positive is happening right now. I think they're still in denial or still in shock that they've lost control of not just the White House, but both houses of Congress.

I'm hardly a right winger (albeit I am consistently fiscally conservative) but Obama needs to slow his roll. Better to pass good legislation then **** poor half assed bills that will clog up the courts and ultimately fail in the court of public opinion.

Enjoy your perceived success while you can, see Jimmy Carter for reference.

The implosion of the Republican party this past election was just the opening act.

That was a fantastic opening act!

They cant think of anything else, certainly not of us. Certainly not of new ideas for moving this country forward. Look at Jim deMint: "If we’re able to stop Obama on this it will be his Waterloo. It will break him". Right, that's the goal -- who cares about making health care affordable?

Republicans were talking about a "permanent Republican majority" as recently as 2005. It didn't turn out so well.

In fact, the political action committee with that very name (Americans for a Republican Majority) was forced to shut down in 2007 after it were fined by the Federal Elections Commission for various violations under the leadership of Tom DeLay.

Americans for a Republican Majority - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Our country.

That sentence alone nowadays seems one sided. The Republican party is a Sham. They are obstructionist. They do not want Obama to suceed.

It really makes me sick to the stomach to see your fellow American bent out to see you fail.

If they do not agree with the plan, devise a better solution. Instead they are critiquing his plan. Dissecting anything they disagree with.

No Ideas, No solutions, Same party!
