Ubanga was re-elected primarily by the Democrat party's "free shit armies" of moochers. They added just enough votes from the ignorant chattering class to put their African communist over the top. And now the skinny little p.o.s. can't even fill up a few inauguration parties. "Extremely popular"? Who gave you the ganja tonight?
Anyway, the rats got their incumbent re-elected, but the Republicans WON RE-ELECTION to control the House! Plus, the Republicans OVERWHELMINGLY control state legislatures and governorships. The Republicans seem to forget all of that.
Nobody likes a bully, and that's exactly what Ubama has been since November - - a bully. A "my-way-or-the-highway" BULLY. That there is not one Republican leader willing to step up and slap down that scumbag Ubanga just drives me nuts. (Again - - if only there was a Republican leader with balls. Alas, there obviously is not. Can you spare some of that ganja?)
By the way, whatever happened to that guy who ran against Ubama? "Mittens", I believe he was called? Whew... Talk about dropping off the face of the earth.
They lost the WH and the Senate again because those are state by state contests not controlled by a party or state governments.
The House is different because those are won by districts created by governors and with Republicans taking many of the state houses they were designed so that the GOP will keep a thin Majority in the House regardless of national politics and how they go.
Obama wins these fights simply because he picks his battles such that they have public support and as I point out regularly he crafts his talking points based on polls.
The GOP??? They appear clueless and have no idea what's going on.
Before the election many (Rush) assured us that O was toast and R would win in a landslide.
After the election that flipped 180 degrees but not the advice, ‘we can't win so lets go for broke’. The GOP on the tax extension was the worst example of going for suicide.
Look at 2009 and 2010, it was temporally flipped against Dems so even the most liberal NE RINOs voted against O’s bills. If voters were supporting the GOP on these fights then Dems would be caving again as then.
Dems have that right now, at least with these budget fights, so Rs just play these games and deteriorate. Do they even want to win ? To make O back down? I have my doubts now? Maybe they just love whining about the MSM and moochers and how its hopeless.
