ODS.. "President Obama is glad the republicon's won..it's what he wanted all along".. Ah NO..

That's just egregiously stupid.. and to quote geek tragedy here because he says it so well..

"Idiotic ODS drivel. No, Obama did not want those whose only goal is to derail his presidency

to control both houses of Congress.

He did not want Mitch McConnell having absolute power over each and every appointment of federal judges.

He does not want more votes on repealing the ACA.

He does not want Senate hearings on Benghazi."

And, Yay.. we don't have to deal with that in the BOG!

geek http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=5780337

Yeah, Obama isn't perfect by a long shot but I'm glad he's the President and I have his back.. especially from all the bullshite flyin' around here.

There's certainly has been a strong stench

of bullshite wafting around.

Those "young" people who didn't vote are too self centered to realize there's a Global Climate Change Crisis hovering over our Planet..

Congratulations, Voters(and NON voters). You Just Made This Climate Denier the Most Powerful Senator on the Environment. http://www.newrepublic.com/article/120134/climate-change-denier-james-inhofe-lead-environment-committee

And, they're proud of their ignorance.. writing letters to whine about there being no reason to vote

I actually know of a lot of younger peeps here on Kauai who voted on Tuesday.. Our Island was the highest turnout in the state! Proud of my Island.. They are concerned about our Environment on the Island and the whole beautiful Planet.

"LIHUE — After tallying the highest voter turnout in a primary election in 12 years back in August, Kauai led the state in Tuesday’s general election with the highest percentage of registered voters making their way to the polls.

Out of 41,869 registered voters, 57.4 percent (or 24,043) cast their vote, down from 62.9 percent in the 2012 presidential election.

“Of course, we always would like to have that number be much higher,” said County Elections Administrator Lyndon Yoshioka."

Christian Domingues, an avid voter, said professional surfer and mayoral hopeful Dustin Barca was an intriguing draw in his unsuccessful bid for office.

snip//

"Aria Juliet Castillo, communications director of Kauai Young Democrats, said she thinks this past year has proven Kauai is very engaged, “since we had the highest increase in voter registration and highest voter turnout on both elections this year.”

It's the Environment, Stupid.

President Obama.. "Please Proceed, Sen McConnell"



"If you didn't get to watch President Obama's press conference this afternoon, I encourage you to do so" (See here.. freshwest http://www.democraticunderground.com/110226440 )

"He made a point of saying that he looks forward to hearing from McConnell and Boehner on what their agenda for Congress will be. And that he's willing to work on those areas where they can agree.

While some will undoubtably view this as pre-capitulation, its actually an amazing power play as well as a reprisal of conciliatory rhetoric as a ruthless strategy.

One way to deal with that kind of bad-faith opposition is to draw the person in, treat them as if they were operating in good faith, and draw them into a conversation about how they actually would solve the problem. If they have nothing, it shows. And that's not a tactic of bipartisan Washington idealists -- it's a hard-nosed tactic of community organizers, who are acutely aware of power and conflict.
Over the last 6 years, Minority Leader McConnell has been able to embrace a "post-policy" approach focused on total obstruction. Now that Republicans control both chambers of Congress, President Obama is basically saying "puts your cards on the table and let's see what you've got."

After last night's election results, both National Review Online and Rush Limbaugh are counseling McConnell to keep up the obstruction. Jonathan Chait pretty much nailed what McConnell will see as his most effective strategy going forward:

McConnell’s next play is perfectly clear. His interest lies in creating two more years of ugliness and gridlock. He does not want spectacular, high-profile failures that command public attention — no shutdowns, no impeachment. Instead, he wants tedious, enervating stalemate. McConnell needs to drain away any possibility of hope and excitement from government, so that the disengaged Democratic voters remain disengaged in 2016.

snip//

Today the President simply called on McConnell to "put up or shut up." That's his best way of undermining McConnell when/if the gridlock continues. In other words, its the best power play he has now - given what the midterm electorate did yesterday.

The rest of herstory.. Nancy Letourneau's/AKA smartypants http://immasmartypants.blogspot.com/2014/11/president-obama-please-proceed-senator.html?spref=tw

This is from Novemeber 5th and kinda got buried with all the other news coming out.. but, well worth taking a look at Now!

Well, he heard from them today..

Consensus from witnesses along West Executive Drive is that Sen. Mitch McConnell was first congressional leader out the door after lunch.

Yeah, the Environment in Crisis with Global Climate Chance isn't enough to get these whiners out of

bed.

That burden is for the rest of us to carry who aren't whining because we do know what's at stake.

Rofl, she

This is Classic.. Mahalo, she!



Well Done, geek! "told him to stay away.." except in PA, Connecticut, Rhode Island,

Michigan(Gary Peters).. and the two campaigns that lost(Maryland & Florida).. maybe there's more I can't think of them right now, if there are.

"Idiotic ODS drivel. No, Obama did not want those whose only goal is to derail his presidency to control both houses of Congress.

He did not want Mitch McConnell having absolute power over each and every appointment of federal judges.

He does not want more votes on repealing the ACA.

Thanks for laying all that out... it highlights the gibberish & poppycock of the OP exponentially.

"Obama didn't cure cancer fast enough! I'm voting for cancer!" Chris Rock.. ROCKS.. cutting off

their little noses to spite their collective face.

Listening to all kinds of shite except what's really real.. like the Global Climate Change and the Supreme Court... They want Elizabeth Warren for Prez? Well with Mitch heading the Senate.. she's not going to get all the exposure with her ideas that she would have with a Dem Majority leader.. but, yeah lets go all Ralph Fucking Nader on their ass.

Yeah, these republicons love our little whiners who stayed home and don't care about Global Climate Change which is True and Immediate.. don't Care about the possibility of getting even more Fascists on the Supreme Court.. Don't care about the possibility of getting Elizabeth for Prez.. which would have a much better chance with a Democratic Majority in the Senate.



Mahalo Yo Mama!
