    Let's see, using the primary democrat excuse when they were in power, obviously the democrats are obstructing everything.

    That isn't what is referenced in the screed. It states restoring funding due to budget cuts. Most of those are happening in cities with more infrastructure and teachers than needed for the dwindling student populations.

    Maybe we should have a "Smokie :smoke: Watch" (Boehner (R) thread to see how long his Speakership & his tparty hostage-held :argue: Congress fairs?

    In my entire life, I never heard of anyone refer to a gray haired man over 50 as "boy", unless it was a Republican or right winger talking about a black man.

    That's not what Mitt Romney believes. Scott Walker compares them and nurses to Isis

    Couldn't do? They had no desire to pass Keystone.

    Did Republicans think they wouldn't, after 6 years of Republican obstruction?

    Of course they knew Democrats would obstruct. So why lie to the voters and say that Republican control of Congress was the cure to gridlock?

    Because with big enough majorities, it was the cure to gridlock. Of course, there are enough children left around to gum up the works, but they'll just have to be marginalized.
