Great speech. Unfortunately, the teabaggers will do anything they can to prevent OUR President from accomplishing anything. Just like they did for the last 4 years.

I hate to say this, but I am starting to slip back into The Survivalist mode.

Boehner and Cantor will not negotiate. They are owned first by the 1%ers and then by the religious right.

Nothing good is coming from this. Let us hope 2014 doesn't sees these assholes still in positions of power.

re: #1 The Survilist

We just had an election, and the solution to our problems is "we'd better kick ass during the next mid-term election too"? F*** that. I say we use the threat of being trounced in the mid-terms to break the party-of-no's resolve. Romney's staggering defeat burst a huge bubble. We just need keep the pressure up about how republicans keep blocking and filibustering everything that doesn't go 100% their way. We have to publicly hammer them for their obstructionism like never before.

And most of all, get this s*** on youtube. The 1%ers wanted SuperPACs. I say we make 'em choke on SuperPAC funded negative ads. Poetic f***ing justice.

...what? No really, what? You'd rather just sit and wait two more years, crossing your fingers? I don't.

re: #2 EiMitch

Sadly, the GOP used the 2010 midterms to gerrymander their districts to protect their turf, and they did hold onto to House. Now the GOP has to cough up a budget that Obama will sign. The onus is on them, otherwise sequestration hits and makes the upcoming recession even worse. Obama doesn't have to run again, so its all on the GOP members in the house to either get sane and tell Norquist to take a hike or continue their fealty to Norquist and tank the country.

Norquist is on record for wanting to shrink government and drown it in a bathtub. Seems the GOP is willing to assist him in his endeavour.

re: #3 Cap'n Magic

Um, wasn't that my point? That the onus is on the GOP congressmen, therefore we should pressure them like never before?

Gerrymandering, shmerrymandering. They can lose the house in 2014 if we make their obstructionism the #1 topic in political discourse and keep it there. Add to that their cutting of social welfare benefits while refusing to increase taxes on mega-corporations which ship jobs overseas, and you've got the perfect hard, sticky mud to sling at them.

The GOP swears fealty to that out-of-touch ideologue Norquist because he holds their campaign purse-strings. But republican senator Lisa Murkowski proved resisting Norquist is not impossible in Alaska. Alaska! Sarah Palin's f***ing turf. Force those congressmen to choose between Norquist and being electable, and they'll drop him and his "pledge" like an obnoxious first-date.
