    They had control of everything for about what 6 years there during the Bush admin.
    And what did they accomplish?
    2 wars,
    nearly doubled debt,
    $4 gas
    And a Recession

    Why should anyone believe the promises they are still making that they made before the 2000 election?
    What a waste of an opportunity to change things to suit them.

    How long since the last time they had controlled congress and the presidency?

    Unfortunately, the hapless Republican elite are following the same false premises of the Statists that have controlled the government since Roosevelt.
    Insanity, same things over and over, different results, and all that.
    Heaven forbid they try something like having faith in liberty and fundamental principles.

    Oh, wait, that's extremist and radical,isn't it?

    No need to live in the past when Obama and the dems have done all of what you just described x 2.

    Stop sniveling.

    Their grip on the heartland (and political funding) remains the same non the less - little has changed for the better among the Red States of America.

    The Republicans have had control of Congress and the Presidency just two times in American history.

    Once before the GREAT DEPRESSION and again before the CURRENT RECESSION.

    15 trillion in debt and deficit spending as far as the eye can see. No budget in 3 years and all bills pilling up in the senate waste basket.

    Your so called saviors are digging us deeper in the hole that their predecessors.

    Without the super committee, the spending cuts start automatically in January of 2013.

    When the Bush tax cuts expire in December of 2012, Obama won't allow them to be renewed.

    Spending cuts + a return to the old tax rates = deficit reduction.

    Congress has been taken out of the equation. No treasonous Tea Party/Republicans to mess things up.

    Another brilliant move by Obama.

    The messiah will be gone in 2013 as a result of all his so called brilliant moves.
