After 6 years of Obstruction and Stonewalling, the GOP has hit the proverbial Stone Wall. 6 years of planning!...all for "where do we go from here"? Good job!!
How a group of clowns who haven't accomplished jack shit since January, 2009... continue their losing ways...as they transition themselves from Minority losers to Majority losers. They'll continue to gerrymander for their majority seats...but will never win a national election and will never be on the north end of Public Opinion. Not, until Republican moderates come out of those toilet stalls they've been hiding in, return from exile, take the taste of Tea out of their mouths...boot all these batshit crazy Right Wing extremists, out of the Republican Party!...and make up some viable policies, that the general public would willing to join you in! Let the Teas charter their own Political Party or join the Libertarian Party...make 'their' lives miserable for a while!
If these crybabies can't win, no one can play with them after school!! Now the GOP House...with of the pressure of their lunatic fringe...is pressuring the GOP Senate into committing Political Hara-Kiri. Changing rules to fit their needs...assuming it well help them? Assumption is the mother of all fuck-ups, remember? What are they willing to lose, just to make Obama miserable?...without taking into account, the rest of the country!
Immigration and Executive Amnesty, anyone?

Do Republicans want to scare Obama with impeachment if he tries to carry the Immigration issue into Executive Orders? Why don't we ceremoniously impeach Ike, Jerry, Ronnie, George, and Junior? Kind of hypocritical...when Republican Presidents issue those Executive Orders, it's OK!...but if Obama does it...fuck you??
As the GOP tries to find themselves...governing by demands and hostage taking, as PoliticusUSA's Jason Easley puts it so well...it's not going to work! Obama has put Congress on notice, that he plans to run through them the last 2 years. Being a lame duck president 'does' have its advantages!
Now that Big Dumbo has taken majority, they have to prove they can legislate and govern...while facing a hostile opposition. Payback, is a bitch!!
