Freaky Stuff.

I remember when Democrats would have fought for the Minority to have a voice in the Senate.
But, I remember when Democrats had Principles and weren't just a bunch of POWER crazed Orwellian gangsters.

Obama has gone Nuclear to end the Era of Principles, Values, and Standards for the American Democratic Party.

This is a two part fantasy brought on by Obama's favorability rating caused by the rollout of the website. Citizen can not be to upset when they take time to review the performance of their market accounts lately.

1. The Republicans have the chance of a snow ball in hell of regaining the majority in the Senate.

A.Despite the technical difficulties of the website the Republicans have no ideas that typical American wish to fellow after witnessing the destruction of America at the hands of Republican policies under George Bush. The favorability rating for Republicans is still at historic lows and right now Obama's rating is more than double the Republicans.

2. Republican continued obstruction in helping to restore the American economy has hit an ice berg in America.

A. There had not been one republican proposal seen as an alternative to repealing ACA.

B. No policies offered to assist working class americans to navigate the web of confusion and financial difficulties most suffer.

C. The Republicans are against equal rights for all citizens and oppose something as basic as an increase in minimum wage.

3. The Republicans have more than shown on several issues they are locked in step with large corporations over typical consumers and the protections of those consumers in the market place.

Those idiots in the Democrat party don't even realize they just killed Obama's entire presidency and will cause it to go down in history as nothing more than a waste of 8 years and a mistake to learn from. You better start praying hard something turns around because if not, R's will run the Senate come the mid-term elections...and then what will it take to undo Obamacare and leave it to history as nothing more than a short bad dream.....ONE VOTE!!!! What bafoons! Live it up Dems....you got a year and no matter what you do it can easily thanks to you be wiped away with nothing more than ONE vote more!!!

yea, right...... name one high crime, or misdemeanor. You people are so full of nonsense......

This is the same boot jack measure the Republicans tried to pull with Bill Clinton...... Ever since Nixon was disgraced and force from office the Republicans have had a hardon to impeach a democrat.

This is more trying to even the score. The last president who violated the Constitution blatantly, and committed a serious High Crime worth impeachment was Ronald Reagan for violating the Boland Amendment in funding weapons for the over throw of a democratically elected government in Nicaragua. Reagan fell on the sword to save members in his administration and some still were convicted and sent to prison for managing that criminal cartel under Reagan.

Name on Obama Crime something juicy worth the talk of impeachment...... there's been a witch hunt in congress since he was initially sworn into office and still there is nothing but naked speculation of wrong doings...... Stop wasting time with that nonsense...

Oh they have plenty of grounds for impeachment, but the Senate controls the impeachment process. As long as it is controlled by Leftists, President Pants of Fire will remain in office.
2010 will look like the good old days aafter the 2014 mid-terms. 16 Democrats up for re-election. Sucks to be them.
Do you serioulsly think any of these Leftist, Obama loving, morons stand a chance after all the lies that have been shoved down We the People's throats.
This is the beginning of the end of the Progressive Movement in this Republic.

I know you’re on a bit of a roll here, but you offer such a fertile field, as it were, begging responses.

Are you saying that you believe President Obama would seek, or even agree to, a third term as
President?

I’m also curious about your allusion to “President Pants of Fire.” It’s a disturbing image, but what you you mean?

You are confusing the "Law" with the technical difficulties of the "Website"....... The law in the quarters it is working is doing well, it's the website that host the troubles, but the phone and faxing in applications are working just fine.....

I would caution against celebrating the demise of ACA because of a faulty website, at last check the website is working just fine and the enrollment is picking up steam around the country.

The Republicans did everything they could to fund the government.
President Stompy Feet threatened to veto everything unless he got his disasterous Obamacare funding. How'd that turn out? Funding for a program that he knew wasn't ready.
A program that still is not completely built. Obama is and was a serial LIAR
The Tea Party didn't down anything.
The Lying President Stompy Feet did.

It is what many people knew for many years. But now it is out in the open. They know the jig is up. They can make as many changes to everything including the Obamacare to keep from imploding. Some progressive on here bring Bush up a lot. Bush was quoted about being a dictator would make things easier for him according to some here. Well the current president is that much closer to it. When the Repubs return to power and the tough decisions have to be made, they will do what we see now as the last five years has seen us move even further to the constitution is nothing but toilet paper. More then that, the mechanisms of being forced to do things by the threat of uniforms already in place will subdue any violent uprisings. The only hope is any freedom loving tea party people elected and/or others who remember sanity. Elitist Repubs and elitist Dems are not going to bring back freedoms. Especially with these fools tightening the grip of absolute power as they glow in the flames of agendas that moves our nation to tyranny.

Now we know why all those Government agencies have been hoarding ammunition. It is in case we decide to fight back. We don't have to do a thing. While we observe the ruination of the Administration of the first tribal President we can just wait, watch, and pick up the pieces in January 2015. Thank you Senator Reid. You underestimated the power of 2/3 of the American people who will meet you at the polls next November. In the meantime Democrats better do al their dirtiness in the next year, because they are gone in 13 months. You have just triggered a silent revolution, only we will do it at the polls.
No doubt your fellow racists will agree with you, but the real question is will the majority of real Americans?

Unlikely.
