    Can someone help me out here?

    Republicans controlled both houses and the Presidency for six straight years. Even during the last two years of the Bush administration, the Senate was 49 to 49 with two independents.

    First, what did Republicans accomplish during that time? With all that power and control?

    Second, what is it they expect to accomplish now by controlling the house? Will it be to continue on the same course or will there be something different?

    Republicans blew it that's why they were voted out. But then the democrats blew it even worse so now republicans have been giving another chance.

    And I have no doubt they will blow it again because neither party has the guts to cut spending.

    We'll see. The Republicans are on probation after all and they know it.

    They passed Ted Kennedy's NCLB bill.

    They stole and passed Medicare D.

    They passed massively bloated transportation and ag spending bills.

    They passed extension after extension after extension of unemployment handouts.

    They created an entirely new cabinet-level bureaucracy --Department of Fatherland Security-- and did a hostile takeover of airport "security".

    If a president and congress controlled by goobers with a (D) by their names had accrued such a list of "accomplishments", knuckle dragging mouth breathers like you would be proclaiming those years as a great success.

    Being good at hiding cost (by putting the 2 wars on an "Emergency Supplemental Budget") and "real" unemployment (lots of upper middle class losing their jobs and NOT going on unemployment DOES NOT mean they were employed) does not count as success.

    Unless you're a crook.
