    The results of Democratic control of Congress, both House and Senate, just may be coming to an end..There control over the past near 4 YEARS represents a constant slide to oblivion. With some luck.. they will pay the price for their lack of leadership, oversight and lack of respect for the greater percent of the American peoples wishes..(join me)...:eusa_pray:

    -------------------------------------:eusa_boohoo:

    WASHINGTON—Democrats for the first time are acknowledging that Republicans could retake the Senate this November if everything falls into place for the GOP, less than two years after Democrats held a daunting 60-seat majority.

    Leaders of both parties have believed for months that Republicans could win the House, where every lawmaker faces re-election. But a change of party control in the Senate, where only a third of the members are running and Republicans must capture 10 seats, seemed out of the question.
    Battle for the Senate

    That's no longer the case. The emergence of competitive Republican candidates in Wisconsin, Washington and California—Democratic-leaning states where polls now show tight races—bring the number of seats that Republicans could seize from the Democrats to 11.

    Nope, BUT you guys sure blame Obama for EVERYTHING since he has been in office, why shouldn't our commander and chief in the last administration get the blame?

    Equal opportunity bashing, seems only fair.....? ;)

    also, I thought the republicans in congress were PROUD of all of their filibusters and Motions to Recommit that have kept the democrats from passing over 80% of their legislation proposed.....? Have the republicans stalled the Democrats will, or not?

    Hate to break it to you but if the Democrats were interested in bipartisan support they would not get filibustered. And in the House the republicans can do nothing since there are only around 180 of them and it takes 218 votes to pass something.

    Also have you been asleep? Most of the GARBAGE the democrats have proposed is Unconstitutional, illegal or down right wrong for this Country. Remember that Gem, "just vote for it unread, it will be fine, we need it now!" And then after rushing them to vote the President took a vacation and did not sign it for at least 5 days.

    Are you going to claim the Republicans are the ones that passed a budget that 50 cents of every dollar spent is borrowed? Proposed a similar one next year as well?

    The Democrats did pass a stimulus bill, of course since no one read it, the Republicans did not realize that the bulk of the money was going to pay off Democratic supporters of the President.

    Changing horses makes little difference if the riders continue on the same path.

    I suppose if you would like to give and allow victim status to Obama/Democrats that would be your prerogative. It simply doesn't seem like displaying leadership to me.

    Obama and Democrats seem to want it both ways. Blame Bush, play victim one day then turn around the next day and take full responsibility. I'm guessing you missed that.

    As we both know Democrats along with Obama have passed some rather devastating legislation that the American people, by majority, didn't like. I would say Republicans have obstructed (delivered us from ruin) to the best of their ability but Democrats haven't negotiated in good faith. Not even enough to get the few votes necessary to pass their legislation. So .. there we go again .. the natural and often used, Democratic victim card..

    The more sincere question would be.. what have the Democrats allowed Republicans to accomplish?

    The Democrats hold all the cards but they act like they don't...yup, I know what your thinking, the poor little... crybabies...:(
