    This fighting Obama and his attempts to help the economy hasn't seemed to work for anyone, Republicans, Democrats or country. How's this for a new Republican tack? Instead of trying to make Obama fail, with the usual Republican no, no, no's, the Republicans instead turn over much of the recovery to Obama. Make the recovery Obama's responsibility. If Obama has some sort of success it was because of Republican aid, help and guidance. If Obama fails then the "I told you so's," can start. In any case that tack might help all, Republicans, Democrats and most importantly the nation.

    Oh, fuck no. Every ounce of the coming disaster is getting the Democrat label slapped right on it for everybody to see. I expect Republicans will stop the worst of Obama's lunacy, shit that can't be walked back. But in terms of giving him cover for his ridiculous policies?... wish in one hand and spit in the other.

    So far it seems Republicans are determined Obama fail no matter what the cost to the nation? I wonder if these responses are typical of most Republicans?

    That ship has SAILED already. You're trying to put the toothpaste back in the tube. You had a chance for a candidate who would have put bipartisanship and practicality ahead of ideology, one with the perfect skill set and temperament for leading us out of this mess. But.. America in it's infinite ignorance rejected that path and chose more of the same. So, put your boo-boo lip away and lay in the bed you made. It's done.

    If R's helped and there was success Obama would never give them credit, he is a taker not a giver.

    If R's helped and there was failure Obama would never take the credit for that, he is a blamer who wears the teflon suit of the media.

    It doesn't really matter one way or the other. Like I said, the toothpaste is out of the tube. Obamacare can't be called back. Nothing we can do on that score. Democrats are unlikely to get serious about fixing broken entitlements, nothing we can do there. The debt bomb is still ticking; Dems are still spending. And the best plan Obozo can come up with is still his ridiculous "tax the rich" scheme, which won't put more than a drop in the bucket.

    We've got the House. We can stop him from doing any stupid crap in addition to what he's already done... but we can't fix the past. The best we can do is to make sure they wear their mistakes like an albatross around their necks.
