1. Boner needs to realize that the VAST majority of voters REJECTED his party's policies.

Should we have the results of the election framed & hung on the house floor?

3. Really? With the "liberally-biased media" constantly going to him for quotes damn near

every day for the past 2 years (or 4), you'd think HE was the President, not Obama ...

36. Vast majority?

If it was 60% of the popular vote (enough for a filibuster), I'd say reasonable majority. But it wasn't 60%. If it was 75% I'd give you VAST majority.

I can give you SIMPLE majority, but that's about it. Obama did not win the popular vote by a landslide.

39. Dubya calls a 3.5 margin (Obama got slightly more) a *mandate*.

Bush staked his claim to a broad mandate and announced his top priorities at a post-election news conference, saying his 3.5 million vote victory had won him political capital that he would spend enacting his conservative agenda.

"I earned capital in this campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it," Bush told reporters. "It is my style."

2. The Oranged-Skinned Boner

 

Is a lot of things, but "flabbergasted" has to be the least offensive term that could be possibly hung around his neck.

that the Republicans didn't sweep November's elections. The human Cheeto is still in denial.

27. Actually the reporting indicates

that the savings come from allowing medicare to negotiate drug prices (like Canada). It is not actually a cut in benefits in that the people get the same meds, we just pay less for them. It is just like the savings that come from removing 716 billion of excess insurance company profits from the system. The benefits are the same, just insurance companies make less money providing them.

20. Lets make it simple

Since the Republican want to cut Medicare/Medicaid I think we should cut both but cut them just for the people who voted Republican after all if the Republican want it cut so bad then they should be the ones who get cut. Lets see how that fly with the GOP voters. LOL

37. Wouldn't it be okay

to cut medicare and medicaid if we had collective bargaining on prescription drugs?

I think that's a fair trade.

13. President Obama is not playing by the rules:

When Republicans win an election, Democrats must completely capitulate because "elections have consequences"

however when Democrats win it is the Democrats who must compromise in the "spirit of bipartisanship"

23. I agree!

GOP = party of hypocrisy, party of obstructionism, and errand boys for the ultra-rich . . .

Their time of any relevance is quickly disappearing.
