    Go on the offensive. They have a mandate.

    Repubicans not only should extend the bush tax cuts, they should legislate across the board tax cuts.

    Let His Excellency veto them. Let the government be shut down, and programs be paid on a case by case emergency basis.

    Republicans need to fight fight fight.

    Obama has a distinct unamerican direction of socialism. It is not compatible with american principles.

    Hate to tell you....The GOP is still in the minority with the Dems controlling the Senate and the White House.

    How about a nice dose of GRIDLOCK?

    Thats what the GOP does best

    Gridlock hurts the pubs not the dems with the public. The election will force BHO more to the center, and if Boehner is at all cognizant of the American public, he will be a bit more accommodating. Woulda shoulda coulda, not agonna happen, though.

    They don't have a mandate.

    What the American people voted for was for the Republicans to take away the mandate that Obama thought he had.

    The American people want GRIDLOCK.

    This election was about the American people telling Obama that ideological liberalism like cap and trade and universal health care is not what we voted for in 2008.

    We voted for jobs and for washington clean up it's act. Obama went the other way, and in the words of Palin the republicans are going to have to reign him back in.

    Gridlock is good, but we can do better than that. The House can make Reid and Obama look awfully bad over the next 2 years. They just need to be disciplined and they need to aggressively promote their legislation. It is a time of gridlock, but we can win a lot of PR wars by forcing our issues to the forefront. It is all about 2012 now......

    It's foolish to assume the Republicans have a mandate. Americans are upset because economic recovery has been slow and the GOP benefited from that. To chalk it up to anything else seems presumptuous.

    The House needs to focus on Austerity Measures. The more spending cuts the House can throw at Obama, the more Obama must veto, the farther Obama falls in the polls.

    If Obama (shockingly) submits to the Austerity Measures...our economy might actually recover.

    Girdlock is good? For who?

    Also, it seems unlikely to me that Reid will stay on as majority leader in the Senate. He's a wounded warrior.

    The Bush tax cuts will not be allowed to expire...

    The Dems are in a precarious position. They control 2/3 of the federal government, so anything going forward like raising taxes, etc. will fall squarely on them. If they allow taxes to be increased, they, including Obama, will take the hit. They know it. It is painfully obvious that the American public isn't pleased with where they have been taking us.

    Up until yesterday, they had deluded themselves into thinking they could basically do whatever.

    The president will permit the tax cuts to be extended: for how long, who knows?

    The sticking point is when Eric Cantor says we need to cut, he won't say what needs to be cut. The GOP has to be very, very careful here. Attack on social security, medicare, medicaid, etc., will go no where and scare folks the GOP wants to vote for it.
