    Ok, we grade the president. What about the opposition?

    Let's grade how much the Republican Party has helped this country for the last year and what their leadership has done to help all Americans.

    F. It's not hard to succeed when your opposition is incompetent, yet the GOP fails.

    In the interest of liberal progressive grading systems, I think they should at least be given one of those "certificates of participation" Kinda like a high school diploma is today. We're all winners!

    I think the GOP is very much akin to the Democrat Party Lite.

    And it's easy to dump on them for it.

    On the other hand, considering that they ARE VERY VERY MUCH the "minority" Party, I'm not clear on what more they could have done.

    I WANTED them to fucking stop COLD the health care fiasco, for example. But guess what? They couldn't once the fucking skeevy Democratics BOUGHT-OFF their own internal dissenters with outright bribes. Why? Because with 60 bought and paid for Senate votes, the fucking skeevy Democratics cannot be "stopped" in the Senate. And without the mechanism of a filibuster even available in the House, the Democrat Parody majority is solid enough to overcome even the occasional stalwart opposition!

    No.

    The GOP finally showed some very needed Party discipline and they deserve a little pat on the back -- albeit it has come too damn late.

    WE, the PEOPLE, gave them the shitty numbers to work with! It's not like they WANTED to be a powerless minority. Thus, we, the people, are about as much to blame as the Party politicians we left in that unenviable position.

    All things considered, they weren't too terrible this past year.

    I'd give them a Gentleman's "C" all things considered. I give the electorate an outright "F.
