    The Dems hit the ground running in 2009 and immediately began to pass legislation

    In spite of having two months to prepare, the failed Republican Congress has yet to accomplish anything and has spent their first three weeks slapping eachother on the backs

    They've been worthless for years now and there's no reason to believe they will suddenly start doing their job.

    I'm sure we'll see a lot more of that.

    Photo ops = legislation.

    We know what Republicans could do. We saw it under Bush when they controlled both houses and the presidency and the Supreme Court. If you can name anything positive, let us know. They even let Bin Laden go and stopped looking for him.

    I started a thread about this very same thing. Directly from Republican Charlie Dent. So the Democrats aren't the only ones who have noticed the looming disasters:

    Best quote of the week goes to Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.), quoted in National Journal as saying: "Week one, we had a peaker election that did not go as well as a lot of us would have liked. Week two, we got into a big fight over deporting children, something that a lot of us didn't want to have a discussion about. Week three, we are now talking about rape and incest and reportable rapes and incest for minors. ... I just can't wait for week four."
