    I heard this quote on the radio yesterday, but this is the first I have finally seen it in print:


    Krauthammer: 'Obama Agenda is Dead,' 'He Tried a 2-Year Experiment in Hyper-Liberalism and the Country Has said No' | NewsBusters.org

    Now, I don't know if I entirely agree with this summation. I think Obama isn't going to give up that easy. I think he is going to try every trick in book to get around Congress and force his agenda on the country.

    If he means that Obama's hopey changey myth with the country is dead, I totally agree. Only the completely delusional still believe in Obama's myth. Everyone else knows Obama is a fraud.

    But does it mean Obama's efforts to force his agenda is dead? Not by long shot. He's going to try every devious shenanigan he can try.

    It all depends on how willing the Republicans are to stand up to Obama. Whether they will hold firm against Obama's agenda, or go all wobbly, as the Republican party is wont to do.

    This is where WE come in. The election is not the end of our effort. We have to hold the Republican's freaking feet to the fire.

    It's going to be a struggle day by day to let the GOP majority know they BETTER get their act together and stop Obama every way they can OR THEY ARE JUST AS GONE IN TWO YEARS AS THE DEMOCRATS.

    It will be time for a new party and to watch the Republican party go the way of the do do.

    ;)

    Yep.

    With Obama in office, and Dem's still holding the Senate, this will happen:

    - If things stay bad or worse, Dems and Obama will take all the blame since they have the most power.

    - But, if things get better, the right taking the House will be painted as the turning point, where we forced Obama to get to the middle.

    Either way, Dems in the Senate who are worried about 2012 will find it in their best interest to associate more with the right. They'll either do it to flee a failing Democratic Party, or to become closer associated with what is percieved as a renewed and vibrant middle/right, in order to save their jobs in 2012.

    So, in fact, the right wing may have control of the Senate through that unofficially.

    It's a great time to not be a leftist!!!

    Difficult to say how the American voters will credit failure or success of the economy two years from now.

    Oh, we can probably predict what narratives the Ds or Rs will invent to explain either outcome, but what the American people will make of it is anybody's guess.

    I suspect that the political cloaks that each party like to assume for themselves (that the Ds are working for the working mann and the Rs are fiscally conservative) has worn very thin for both of them over the last 20 years or so.

    I just don't think the American voters are as dumb as the RNC and DNC hope.

    I think more Americans understand that both parties are largely full of beans.

    And I also suspect if we had more than two viable parties to choose from, the Rs and Ds would both be out of power,

    Now you are sounding like myself, I just see a third party arising if the new Congress mirrors the last few.

    Its very simple..........the unemplyment rate comes down to 7% or less or Obama's a one term president. Its that simple.........particularly since right now, the ENTIRE rust belt is now red.

    I think you're probably right about that.

    Overanalysis for the gay...................

    Most people who vote in the general election place the blame sqarely on the shoulders of the presdident as he is seen as the person who sets the agenda. Not the congress. Nobody cared about the fact that Dems controlled the budget reigns from 2006 and when 2008 rolled around, the GOP got whacked.

    The GOP now controls 1/2 of one house...........almost insignificant come 2012.

    Its just fact that right now, liberal ideology as it relates to public policy has been given the heave-ho......its not even debatable. Remember......this is a "Politics" forum, not one to discuss ideology, thus, it is what it is. Conservatives took a kick to the balls two years ago and it stung. Now its the time for liberals to be miserable.

    I believe to a great degree that Krauthammer is correct. He's a pretty smart guy. If the Republicans get some useful stuff accomplished, like getting people back to work, control over the runaway government spending, repeal part or all of the ObamaCare mess, then they too will do well in 2012. However, if they do not, they will also get fired in the next elections just like the Democrats got fired in this election. It is not that the general public is in love with the Republicans. They are on "probation" with the voters. They too can be fired just like the Democrats if they do not provide some results that are acceptable to the people who elected them.

    nope........you're listening to too much spin from the pundits.

    My post just up the line here sums up the reality, though some might not like it.
