    After Obama was elected, that was the stated strategy of the GOP. Basically, do everything you could to prevent Obama from acquiring a resume that would lead to his reelection. This included smear campaigns, delays, filibusters and whatever Fox News could spit out.

    How has it worked? Well, in the first two years, the Democrats controlled Congress. they were able to pass:

    Obamacare
    Repeal DADT
    Reduce nuclear weapons by one third
    Economic Stimulus
    Financial Reform
    Credit card reform

    In addition, Obama did as he promised and redirected the war on terror from Iraq to Afghanistan and Pakistan. Drone attacks are up and the number of terrorist targets eliminated are up substantially

    In 2010, the Republicans took control of the House and gloated that they would now be able to block Obama from accomplishing anything in his last two years. How did it work out?

    Obama hit a home run in killing Bin laden and now has captured intelligence to mop up Al Qaida operatives. He also begins withdrawals from Afghanistan and Iraq. He correctly positioned the US in a backup role in Libya and has allowed NATO forces to bear the load.

    Now the GOP is stuck with no viable candidates for President and must show the voters what the GOP has accomplished in the last four years

    And look where we are: Inflation, high unemployment, high gas prices, massive debt.

    I can't imagine why anyone would have wanted Obama to fail [/sarcasm]

    Obama Deficits> Entire Reagan Budgets

    Gas $4

    Unemployment 9%

    USA AAA Credit rating sails off into the sunset

    and potential Republican 2012 lineup looks like the 1927 Yankees

    Republicans are going to have to convince America that they are miserable. Both Reagan and Bush proved that Americans don't care about deficits. They also proved that the way to get out of an economic crisis is deficit spending

    Gas has spiked due to the middle east revolutions. The price of a barrel of oil dropped 15% last week and is back under $100.

    Unemployment is trending downward and we are adding 200,000 plus jobs a month. Once again, it comes down to misery. A 7 percent or 8 percent unemployment rate does not matter to people if they, themselves have a job

    Thanks Robert

    I forgot the other key Republican strategy. Take whatever Obama has accomplished and scream FAIL before it has even taken effect. It works with Fox News viewers, but real voters look at it and say....are you fucking kidding me?

    When are the Republicans going to list their accomplishments over the last four years? How about the last ten years?

    Your welcome I thought it was completely appropriate to point out the simple fact. I suppose its a bit redundant I mean after all by your logic he would either be setup to fail or he would fail which he did either way as history will accord he failed
