    I have been a member of this board for less then a day and I have read a few misinformed replies about blaming the republicans for all that is wrong with this country. I am here to set the record straight.


    Since 1945 the democrats have controlled the house all but 7 times

    From 1949 to 1993 the Democrats have controlled the house.
    = 44years

    2006 until the present the Democrats have controlled the house.
    =4 years

    Democrats controlled the senate
    1945,
    1949,
    1951
    1955
    1957
    1959
    1961
    1963
    1965
    1967
    1969
    1971
    1973
    1975
    1977
    1979
    =32years

    Also I will add that the democrats control both house and senate from
    1955-1979
    = 24 years

    and from1987-1993
    = 6 years
    And in 2001 the democrats controlled the senate
    = 2years


    Years Democrats controlled White House and Congress[/B]
    1945
    1949

    1977
    1979
    1993
    1995
    1997
    1999
    2009
    = 28 years

    It is amazing how much havoc the republicans were able to wreck in the short time they had control, eh?

    You're under the mistaken impression that facts are of any consequence to the committed Fabian/progressive authoritarian statist....That and the equally fallacious notion that there's a dime's worth of difference between remocrats and depublicans in the first place.

    Keep playing...Those illusions will eventually wear off.

    Agreed but it does seem that the democrats have had more time to screw things up then the Republicans have. Don't get me wrong the Republicans aren't prefect but lets not fool ourself the democrats have controlled the government more then the republicans have.

    According to this information, Republicans must have super-powers to do what they've done :D
