    I was wondering where the GOP campaign slogan to subvert the country came from.
    The war on drug employees the slogan, "Just say no" but that is not the same.
    Then it hit me, "NO!" is taken from a young child's vocabulary when the child is unable to offer any insight and simply wants attention and does not know nor care about the consequences.

    I keep asking this. How can the Republicans effect ANY bill? There are 265 Democrats in the House, it only takes 218 to pass a bill, there are 59 Democrats in the senate with an additional 2 independents that vote Democratic, it only takes 51 votes to pass a bill in the senate. Perhaps YOU can explain it to me? No one else has.

    How amusing, the DNC adopted the GoP solgan of a few years ago.

    Yet another example of what I have said and will keep saying, they are the same, both in it for themselves at our expense.

    Watch the add from a few years ago, notice how all they say is 'no'

    Shutup, troll

    The reality is that the only way the Dems have effectively total control of Congress. The Republicans are a non-entity at this point.

    Exactly JB, which is why its halrious watching teh Dems give marching orders to blame protests on 'FOX news' and the GoP, which is powerless to stop anything.

    The dems need only pass what they like, why isn't it happening?

    Because DEMS oppose this, but the bag of tricks doesn't include attacking one's own side, so we are back to the tried and true 'blame the other guy' routine.

    Perceptive observation

    Politics is the art of getting ignorant people to think your simple solutons will solve their complex problems.

    Now the Dems used to be the masters of this technique...like back int eh 50s and 60s

    But now, especially since Rovian techniques were put into place, the Republicans are the masters of this sham technique for gtting elected.

    Neither of these parties is worth the dynamite to blow them up, in my opinion.

    That pretty much sums it up. The Republicans had the power and blew it. Now the marxist liberal wackos are running the country. Of course, they don't have to say "no" on anything since they have clear majorities. It would, however, be nice if they would actually read the bills they propose.
