    Salty, I think it is same-old, same-old. He would have said this even if the GOP had lost seats. Now he can make life more miserable for Obama and he may. That is a dangerous strategy as it might backfire if people see him and the GOP as simply continuing a line of obstructionist. I do not think he has to continue that line.

    For me this is a wait and see time; too early to make any positive or negative judgments. It is going to be an interesting two years. My hope and prayer is that everyone will work together for the good of the country and not just politics. Ok, ok I realize I am simply a romantic.

    Oh well, think I'll have another cup of coffee. :saint:

    We all agree with that - however the situation is agreeing what is best. Obama thinks Obamacare is the best for medical. Republicans want to be strict with illegal immigrants.

    Its all a matter of interpretation.

    Have it without me - I off caffeine for the next week.

    OH and by the way the old "The GOP are obstructionists" narrative did not work either.

    I think that I have been on this board on and off for over a decade and I do think that English poet John Keats is a romantic but never have I considered you as a romantic but more of a neo-orthodox (very unromantic) and a liberal (very unromantic).
