    Rhetoric aside if congress stays about the same or the gop gets more seats in the upcoming election Obama is dead in the water. Nothing of significance will get done by either side unless the gop has a super majority so why bother voting him in again? He has accomplished all he can but now that the democrats have lost power what could you possibly expect him to do in the future?

    If the gop gets enough seats they could over ride his veto so I just don't see the upside for the democrats in voting for him. I've often wondered why you guys don't switch parties and vote for Romney or Huntsman thus lessening the damage that may be done if Obama loses.

    At the very least even with an Obama win the gop will hold enough power to block him so where is the upside for America?

    Or dump his ass and demand a different option. You got no future with him. Other than maybe an impotent leader.

    Statistically you're probably getting the Senate. House is up for grabs as always.

    I think what you're missing is how radical the current crop of GOPers is. Even if you wind up with both chambers we'll need a (D) in the White House to stop the radical agenda.

    In an effort to continue with the devils advocate ill bite.

    Santorum, Bachmann and Paul could be perceived that way but I see nothing radical about the others.

    So, no democrat can see this coming if he wins? Or you guys simply don't care as long as you get to sling arrows at the opposition?

    Yea, it's just impossible to pass bipartisan legislation. It has never happened in all of American history. The only time any constructive work gets done is if one party controls all branches of gov't.

    Sound logic.
