They won't be spectators. They will be forced to be spectacles in front of the TV cameras. They will have to talk out of their rears publicly for as long as they want. Americans will see who they really are and who they really support. That's what our founding fathers wanted with the filibuster.

Based on Obama and Geitner's proposals on the budget and debt crisis, it appears that Obama learned something after all with all those appearences on Letterman. How to be a weak comic.

The GOP playing nice? Would they even know what that is?

They don't know how to negotiate, nor do they know how to be nice to anyone ever.

Why doesn't Obama make the Proposal. Can't your boy put together a plan. He sure didn't his first term, when his whole plan was to diss Romney with lies, and promise candy to losers. Tell your boy to man up and lead.

The GOP TEA Party RINOS spent their two years in power dedicated to making President Obama a one-term President all at the expense of the working middle class and to the benefit of the 1%. We Americans do not forget so easily.

==========

We are fully aware that the GOPTEA RINOs and the 1% are doing all they can to tank the economy just to win an election.

By November here is what the American people will remember after the G-roup O-f P-olitical T-erroristic E-uropean A-merican birthers took over the house.

1) They shifted focus from jobs and the economy to defending DOMA, looking for birth certificates, and whining about teleprompters.

2) They almost pushed us into a government shutdown.

3) They pushed us into a credit downgrade.

4) They fought to kill medicare and medicaid.

5) They held our payroll tax cuts hostage for a pipeline.

6) The Republican Death Panel are fighting hard to take away healthcare for the working middle class.

8) They believe the unemployed feel like they're victims who want to depend on government.

7) But they sure fought vehemently for those top 1% wealthy people.

All at the expense of the economy and the middle and working class. The people who will be most hurt by GOPTEA obstructionism are the working middle class. The rich 1% would hardly notice a dent. Which is why Rich Money and Boehnor could care less.

The American people are wising up to the Republican RINOs/TEA Party. This group will intentionally sabotage things if things don't go their way....at the expense of the working middle class.

Two years was enough and come November the American people are ready to fire Speaker Boehnor, Cantor, and Grover Norquist.!

==========

We haven't fired Boehnor and Cantor yet b/c of the gerrymandering...but we got very close.

Oh wow, really he won. If he won, tell him to lead. It goes with the territory you know. He can't be a world leader, if he can't lead at home. Give Obama a call and spain it to him.

lol! I think we should all sit back and watch the GOP squirm as it gets closer to 2013.

Obama doesn't need to do much at this point since the GOP wants to play hard ball... the people will create the discomfort for the House!

LOL No, he posted for his basement housing at his parents and collected money for Karl Rove, then got fired ANYWAY. So sad, Karl is laughing (at Laughing Liberal) all the way to the bank. Poor Laughing Liberal is now homeless. Worst of all, in his mind, he has no internet connection. His parents are trying desperately to get him into a 12-step program for posting addiction. He never knew his son who is now an adult. Guess the last part is a BLESSING, for the SON.
