    If the Dems lose Congress, and become obstructionists just like the Regressives have been, will the Rightwingers on this forum bitch about it?

    Do you mean, if they propose and pass legislation that is vetoed by the President? Surely...why wouldn't they?

    Sure! I plan on it.

    Doesn't change the fact that Madison and the boys wrote the rules that way.

    And I do think that the remaining democrats will sit and think "Geez, we really pissed off the voters didn't we? Maybe we should do something different?

    An epic quagmire is just what is needed for the next 10 years. Maybe then, we the citizens can put the country back together.

    Sure, problems usually just go away if you ignore them.

    If they use the same back room deals, payoffs for votes, total disrespect for what the American people want, if they have no transparency, if they make a habit of lying to the American public about legislation like the Democrats have, sure I'll bitch about it...

    That isn't even close to the OP, but thanks for the deflection.

    The answer to your question is... Yes

    What do you mean by Regressives?... Are you trying to be funny?

    Uh...no. Democrats didn't filibuster every single item of business.

    So, even though the Regressives have been obstructionists, and you have been cheering that on (presumably), if Minority Democrats become the Party of No, you would whine about it?

    Progressives go forward. Regressives go backward.

    The Democrats will not vote as a block, to stop all Republican legislation. at least not in the way Republican do. Unlike Republicans, Democrats do not all share the same philosophy. This is their weakness and their strength.
