    Saw this speech by Pelosi from when the Democrats won Congress in '06. Listen and see what promises she's made and then tick off how well they have kept those promises.
    She is wrong on every single issue. This speech should be played by the GOP every day until Election Day.

    It is something Dems don't like to talk about. 5 years of Democrat power, how are things? Now I'm not saying Republicans are any better, Dems and Reps are about equal.

    Republicans shoved a health care bill down people's throats using questionable tactics and a 2kpage bill? Republicans blocked Obama judicial nominees?
    I could go on and on here. Yes, the GOP is not perfect. Welcome to politics. But they are nowhere near is conniving and nasty as the Dums.

    Considering the 111th Congress was one of the most productive in history, I'd say pretty well. Contrast that to the 112th Congress: Boehner and company are fast becoming the least productive congress in history.

    And Dems did all that in a five month filibusterproof period. Pubs are shameless in lockstep obstruction, then saying Obama has no leadership.They will now pay...
