the Repuke majority in the House is essentially a tea party caucus

And I don't think Boehner will find it easy to round them up. They're going to obstruct and obstruct and obstruct some more. Yeah? They'll be voted out, you say? Probably not. Take a look at redistricting maps in state after state- like PA, for instance. I don't now how we deal with these fucks.

1. They will be voted out. I'm convinced.

The Tea Party has already overstayed its welcome. They'll be gone soon enough. Meanwhile, two words -
executive order.

3. alas, you are almost certainly wrong.

redistricting. read some articles about what republicans in statehouses across the country have done. there have been some excellent pieces on this in the last few weeks.

And executive orders only go so far.

2. We can't continue to cave in to their economic blackmail.

Obama needs to learn how to just tell them no.

5. I agree with you in principle. But, I can't see how legislation will pass if they

continue to stonewall.

7. Remember, Republicans shut the government down and Clinton stood his ground.

The public saw it for what it was, economic blackmail. They appropriately turned against Republicans, why eventually relented because they couldn't take the heat.

Read the Paul Krugman article I linked upthread.

4. Gerrymandering can only go so far.

 

The rising consciousness of The People WILL vote them out, no matter how hard republickcons try to redistrict that reality.

6. The republican idea for Obama

reaching across the aisle and compromising, is to go 100% their way or fuck you.

8. That's just what GWB said after the 2004 election.

He invited members of Congress to work with him, just as long as everything went his way.
