Do you know who was Speaker of the House under Calvin Coolidge? Herbert Hoover? FDR?
Keep that thought in mind.
CBS Political Director John Dickerson suggested that Barack Obama ought to destroy the GOP
The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.
Obamas only remaining option is to pulverize. Whether he succeeds in passing legislation or not, given his ambitions, his goal should be to delegitimize his opponents. Through a series of clarifying fights over controversial issues, he can force Republicans to either side with their coalition's most extreme elements or cause a rift in the party that will leave it, at least temporarily, in disarray.
Anyone with half a brain knows that Obama means little to none of what he says, but never mind that for a moment. The advice to Obama is to "pulverize" them and Obama has consistently demonized the GOP. With that in mind, it's time for payback.
Also remember that all politics is local.
Mort Zuckerman asserts that we are in a an Obama depression:
The reality is, we are experiencing a modern-day Depression. It is harder to find work than it has been in any previous economic recovery period. Typically, it takes 25 months to close the employment gap from the employment peak near the start of a downturn. But this time around, five years after employment peaked in January 2008, non-farm employment is still roughly 4 million below where it started. Never before has the job level not been at a record high during the fourth year into a business cycle.
In fact, 4.5 million fewer Americans are working today than when the recession started, and fewer are working today than in the year 2000, despite the fact that our population has grown by 31 million and our labor force by 11.4 million. Though the White House forecast four years ago that, with its stimulus policies, the jobless rate would be down to 5.2 percent by now, the real unemployment rate is 14.4 percent.
The Pew Research Center reports that for the first time in the post-World War II era, middle-class families finished the decade significantly poorer in terms of household net worthwhich is down almost 40 percent since 2007and with lower incomes than a decade earlier. This has hit the middle class harder than any other group. According to Pew, one third of Americans now identify themselves as lower class or lower middle class, a deterioration since 2008 when one quarter identified themselves that way.
We are in a depression. The Obama depression.
Barack Obama has a huge ego. Gigantic.
The issue here is not going be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln just in terms of what weve gotten done in modern history.
But it IS a list of accomplishments he is after. He pushed through a stimulus, a health care abomination and wants to push through amnesty and suffocate us with "climate change" legislation without any of them needing to be successful. The economy should be Job One, but it still sucks and shows no inclination to improve.

As far as I am concerned Obama already has his legacy.
The worst President in the History of the United States.
The biggest liar ever to hit the White House.
The biggest debts ever.
Soon thanks to N.Korea, Iran, and Pakistan and Obama, we may be talking about a nuclear hit on our country
Tokyo is doing a good job all be hisself.
Ask Michele Bachmann About CBS News Political Director John Dickerson
January 22, 2013
There was a great uproar over John Dickersons column advising Barack Obama to go for the throat and declare war on Republicans, but it wasnt as if there were no prior evidence of Dickersons biases. Remember the November 2011 debate in Spartanburg, S.C.?
In an e-mail exchange, a network staffer informed CBS political analyst John Dickerson that Bachmann was interested in appearing on Dickersons post-debate webcast. The staffer CCed the message to Bachmanns communications director Alice Stewart and when Dickerson answered, he evidently clicked reply to all without realizing that what he wrote would go directly to the Republican aide. Dickerson wrote:Okay lets keep it loose though since shes not going to get many questions and shes nearly off the charts in the hopes that we can get someone else.
I still put Hussein 3rd among worst Presidents after 1.) FDR, and 2.) LBJ.
But, Hussein's not done yet, so we'll see.
We are in a depression.
However the Baraqqis skillfully used fake borrowed money to pay off enough folks with entitlements to gain reelection.
At some point, this strategy is gonna blow up.
I dearly hope it happens in the next 48 months.
The GOP is in no shape to destroy anything but itself.
Bunch of RINOs.
Odumbo desired legacy - the last US President before America collapsed into a separate areas that were taken over by other countries.
Canada takes the Midwest, Germany takes the East Coast States, Mid Atlantic States, Pennsylvania and Ohio, Cuba takes Florida, Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas, Mexico takes Louisana, Mississippi, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, China takes Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Nevada and Russia takes Alaska.
What do you expect from a loser or a failure at everything he does destroy the uSA
nothing to lose. There is no downside to getting rid of Obama now. Charge him with every single action he has taken. Hold hearings on everything, Hold up all appointments. Pass nothing. USA is going down with Zero in charge. That is his desire. Take a shot at salvation and go after him. If it doesn’t work, nothing has been lost. He has already taken all the money. Does anyone think he has the gold stored for Germany and others. Not a chance.
Buchanan still holds his place as #1 worst President in history.
Russia has lingering claims on Washington, Oregon and Northern California down to San Fran Bay ~
That would require that SOME OF THE PUBBIES possess actual, functioning TESTICLES!!!
The evidence is that THEY DO NOT!!
hee hee hee
You can forget Mexico taking Texas, ever. Try Texas takes Mexico, kills all the druggies, frees the citizens and aligns with the sane 2/3 of the states in the U.S. toward a prosperous free future. Let the leftist scum die of starvation and freezing temperatures.
GOP = Gutless Old Party
No spine in the GOP
“GOP = Gutless Old Party”
Friends of David Plouffe are we ?????
That wouldn't have happened either and Dick Cheney would never have become VP.
That's how bad Buchanan was ~
House speaker during “Silent Cal’s” term. FDR(D)governor of New York involved in NY politics. Hoobert Hever (R) is a guess but was closely associated with the Wilson administration after WWI and also came from an academic background.
