    That is, if America improves and prospers under Obama's Administration...is that a good thing for Republicans, whether they have little or all the control in Congress/Senate or not.

    What happens to the Republicans if Obama really brings this country out of the crapper that Bush led it to?

    It doesn't matter what Obama does. Haven't you read the right wing posts on this MB? He is stupid. He is responsible for all the bad things that have ever happened to our country. He has failed at everything. There is no chance he could do anything good or worthwhile...even by accident.

    Yep, you're right...

    But let's suppose....just for fun.

    What if Obama brings the country out of the quagmire that Bush 'n' Co. left it in?

    Would that be good for the Republicans?

    I'd be tickled pink, and would give the man the credit.

    But you need to realize that we'll have to see actual results, not just Obamabots claiming The One saved us.

    He has to end these illegal wars.

    The wars were a big issue when Bush was in office but since Obama has been president the anti-war movement seems quiet.

    Ending the wars and cutting defense spending, for starters, will help get the economy back on track without cutting people off who are dependent on government social programs

    They aren't silent, they are more calmed and quiet, they do, however, still protest.

    You see, they realize that it wasn't Obama that started these wars.

    They also realize that Obama is working on and intending to bring them down.

    RepubliCON$ want to have it both ways, as usual. They want to stop him from pulling out, then bash him for not.

    It's the RW way. Once Obama wins that 2nd term, we'll see some real action.

    President Obama is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, he can end the wars right now if he so choose.

    Bush was absolutely wrong for starting these wars but Obama becomes complicit the longer he is in office and they continue on. Especially as things getting hotter with Pakistan, the Libyan strikes.

    He still has time but I just don't see him doing it.

    We will be told its our responsibility to stay, to finish the job, etc. etc. But really we should just come home.
