    " Republicans made a decision to oppose everything, absolutely everything that Obama proposed. " according to crabtownboy.

    Can anyone list anything of significance that the Republicans were able to prevent Obama from getting that he proposed?

    Now don't include anything on your list that the Democrats actually prevented Obama from getting - like his budgets. :laugh:

    They oppose what Obama does because everything he wants to do is always fundamentally wrong. If the Republicans agreed with him they would not oppose it. and Obama opposes everything the Republicans do.

    I am sorry, Crabby, but I am not doing your reading assignments this summer. :laugh:

    I am looking for more than just a cut and paste google search.

    Besides it looks like more than half of your list are just the "student loan interest" thing.

    Duplication to pad your post doesn't count.

    The balance on your list appear to be the same generalized complaint about Republicans blocking Obama.

    I think that Obama got his student loan consolidation plan in the end.

    What significant thing did the Republicans block?

    Not oppose - but actually block.

    That is not the case. On a number of occasions they have opposed ideas they put forth before Obama was elected. It is simply an irrational decision to oppose everything regardless of how much it may end up hurting the American people.

    Read the article: http://farangbaa.com/republicans-opp...-supports-them

    Yes it is. And your link goes nowhere. Show me a direct quote from a Republican leader who said they are doing this. And Obama and Reid has opposed everything the Republicans do.

    Yeah, I checked the link and it would not work. So I did my search again on the words "Republicans oppose their own ideas"

    Here is that article:

    I have to leave for several hours. I will post more on this later.

    Crabby, get back on topic.

    What significant proposal of Obama's was blocked by Republicans?

    Obama got his individual mandate.

    What was BLOCKED by Republicans?

    Not opposed - but BLOCKED !

    Crabby you do not get it. First accusing all Republicans of having created the mandate is just dishonest. Second doing that on the state level and on the Fed level are two different things. There is no comparison to be made there. You need to do more than articles like this do and actually pay attention to the details. The left, like your self, is taking things with loose association and trying to turn them into what they are not hoping the American people will not pay attention to the details so their false claims will appear believable. I honestly believe you are smarter than that though there is no evidence of it from your posts.

    As they should.

    Obamaconsumed by getting a tax increase.

    Also I'd like to point out that democrats had the same strategy for Bush, even without a re-election bid coming. Based purely on hate.

    Actually, it means, literally, "Caucasian alien", with the "baa" sound at the end a suffix meaning "crazy".
