  •  To quote the GOP: "Elections have consequences" (5+ / 0-)

    Even when they lose. Throw in the fact that the GOP has gotten their butts kicked in 3 of the last 4 elections, and it's pretty clear that this nation is moving away from them in significant numbers. The 2014 campaign should start right now: "End divided government".

      The American public is convinced that divided government is a good thing, despite much evidence to the contrary.

        The Republican / Tea Party intransigence we've seen since the 2010 "seduction of America" election has absolutely NO counterpart in american History.

        On Rachel's show tonight, we saw the numbers of bills passed for every congress since Truman's "do-nothing" congress.

        The most recent congress has passed fewer than 200 bills... the WORST record in America's recent history.

        For a better America, vote the GOP out of office whenever and wherever possible and as soon (and as often) as possible!
