8. The Rethugs were very very smart during Redistricting
They did not do what has been done time and time again. The Rethugs did not dilute their own districts in an effort to give themselves an overwhelming majority. Instead, they redrew the district lines to give a slight majority of house seats a safe Rethug district. This is why the Rethug majority was re-elected in what was otherwise a landslide for Democrats. So while we were able to chase a couple Rethugs out of office, we were unable to take back the House.
This comes as close as possible to creating a bullet proof Rethug majority in the House. Now of course, it is an obvious part of their plan. It means that the Rethugs can obstruct from now to 2020, when the next Census is taken, and the district lines are up to be adjusted again. To change that we have to win State House elections. But in the meantime, we are stuck with Governing in a gridlocked environment. Do we really think we will manage to vote the bastards out in two years? Do we really think that the Rethugs will blink now that we are approaching the Fiscal Cliff, with hundreds of thousands of jobs tied to the Sequestration that kicks in at the same time? Add to the pending unemployment jump from sequestration, the Companies that are already laying of tens of thousands and blaming it on the ACA, and you have the Rethugs able to sabotage not only President Obama's second term, but the economy as a whole.
Hitler was quoted as saying that he would see the world burn before he gave it up. The Rethugs are just as evil, determined to see the nation burn before they surrender control. They don't have to answer to us, or the nation as a whole. Just their own gerrymandered districts that are majority Rethug filled with mouth breathing morons and racists.
Now the plan is obvious, and now we are faced with two, or more probably four more years of Rethug obstruction.
