If you think it's ugly now, wait until we drag the Republicans through their tax-cut cesspool all summer long, and they have to repeatedly block an extension for the middle class to try to pay off their rich benefactors.
When voters figure out they'll have to pay out of their own pocket to elect one of these Republican doofuses, it's over.
Well over a year ago ago I called President Obama in a landslide, and my guess has only been reinforced since then.
How did I do it? What amazing magic did I use to foresee what the Republicans can only see now?
I read the fucking legislation the Republicans had signed.
Which, apparently, not one of the forty million active Republicans in the country did. I suspect it is because they assumed that any agreement they made could be subsequently broken.
But it can't, because Reid, Pelosi, and Obama correctly anticipated that breaking prior agreements would be the Republicans' first priority in the 112th Congress, and crafted the legislation so that it could not be pried apart.
This is the most important lesson President Obama has taught us. They can have all the money. They can buy the media and attempt to control the debate. But Republicans cannot fight Democrats legislatively, because the only thing they know about legislation is how to manipulate it for profit.
They are too criminally incompetent to foresee the complications their own greed creates--and too greedy to notice how criminally incompetent they are. President Obama has turned the base nature of the GOP against itself, and now they not only teeter on the brink of defeat, but I am beginning to wonder whether or not they face the prospect of fractionation and perhaps even the breakdown of our two-party system.
(Senator) Obama's really got his shit together, and very well may be a two-term President....
I think there is a chance that Obama can win some of those authoritarians, by forcing them to redefine the majority of which they are a part to include a bad motherfucker like Obama and themselves. It won't make them responsible voters, but it might make them happier, less fearful, and less hateful.
