According to the devoted followers of the Bush/Cheney administration and the GOP Congressmen, the entire disaster of the last eight years belongs to the Democrats. The Republican faithful blame every mistake and misstep on the Democrats who controlled Congress for the last two of those years. To believe these deluded people one must accept that the simple majority held by the Democrats since 2007 had the necessary votes to start the useless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that began four years earlier. That same slim majority had the muscle to gut the EPA and weakened environmental rules long before 2007. Those magical Democrats somehow passed retroactive laws that handcuffed agencies like the SEC with deregulation thus allowing the bankers and Wall Streeters to run amok for eight years, six of those years while the Republicans had a substantial Congressional majority. These clever liberal legislators used their political voo doo to trick Dubya into signing all of these harmful policies into law, leaving him unaware of the disaster a few years in the future. Yes, if the Democrats can continue that magic, a turn around will be no problem, we all know the Republicans can only stand by powerless and watch as the Democrats use their legerdemain to take the country to the very edge and then bring it back at will. Why anyone votes for the ineffective GOP is anybody's guess, try as they might they never do anything, this is by their own admission, it is the Democrats that set policy at all times.
