How many of them were teachers or civil servants caught up in the GOP's cuts on public employees?

Of the 600K+ government jobs shed since June 2009 I bet you a good % where woman.

Quit lying. The so-called super-majority in the Senate lasted six months.

Without that super majority, the GOP still had filibuster power over almost any legislation coming to a vote.

The summer of 2012 is about to be remembered as the time of rending of discounted or knock-off clothes, wailing at the 401K and the gnashing of veneered teeth ...

This summer's wealth destruction could be off the charts.

The Super majority also only existed if the democrats had Joe Liberman and Arlene Specter on board along with the rest of the coalition.

I miss W says:
seajaw says: Reagan and O'Neill collaborated. Clinton and Gingrich collaborated (sort of).

ImW: Utter nonsense, Clinton vetoed the Republican's budgets four times and the result was a government shutdown.

Let's not forget how Clinton went nut's with the 97 tax cuts.

I miss W...to democrats, "collaborating" always means Republicans caving in and Democrats getting their agenda.

seajaw, I'll try this again:

Don't forget how "bi-Parisian" he was when he said right from the beginning.

" I won"

You were lying about the two-year window.

The GOP minority had the filibuster threat for all but six months.

Which was several months after the Inaugural night dinner in which a group of GOP heavyweights met with the goal of blocking everything Obama tried to do.

"WASHINGTON -- As President Barack Obama was celebrating his inauguration at various balls, top Republican lawmakers and strategists were conjuring up ways to submarine his presidency at a private dinner in Washington.

The event -- which provides a telling revelation for how quickly the post-election climate soured -- serves as the prologue of Robert Draper's much-discussed and heavily-reported new book, "Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives."

According to Draper, the guest list that night (which was just over 15 people in total) included Republican Reps. Eric Cantor (Va.), Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), Paul Ryan (Wis.), Pete Sessions (Texas), Jeb Hensarling (Texas), Pete Hoekstra (Mich.) and Dan Lungren (Calif.), along with Republican Sens. Jim DeMint (S.C.), Jon Kyl (Ariz.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), John Ensign (Nev.) and Bob Corker (Tenn.). The non-lawmakers present included Newt Gingrich, several years removed from his presidential campaign, and Frank Luntz, the long-time Republican wordsmith."

"I won" might actually be considered a response to that. The GOP -- had the positions been reversed -- would have claimed the same mandate.

seajaw, nice diversionary tactic:

Can you tell me what parts of the Obama agenda did not get passed in those first two years?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 1, 2012 12:40:51 PM PDT
Ze'ev says:
Yeah after he told them " I won" the GOP knew that Obama lied about bring in a new DC--duh!

Libertarian - "So you are pro-Obama with that part of the recovery. 600K+ Government jobs LOST since June 2009. "

Strange world where government getting smaller is a good thing, and it's Obama's fault that it's happening.

I am unable to access a specific list of what actually got blocked.

Yeah, when you find everything that got blocked by Republicans, let us know please!

"Really I guess that memory of yours has forgotten that Obama failed to act on his own deficit commissions recommendations which would have basically closed all the tax loop holes."

You might want to remember that all Republicans that signed the Norquist pledge have pledged not only not to raise taxes, but not to close any loopholes.

"Republican candidates declining to sign generally indicate that they nevertheless oppose tax hikes. But some are chaffing against the constraint on eliminating tax loopholes, believing those restrictions limit Republicans' ability to negotiate seriously with Democrats on a deal to tackle the nation's mounting debt.

"In Pennsylvania, Republican state Rep. Scott Perry said he was disappointed to see his party's presidential candidates -- all but one of whom signed the pledge -- uniformly indicate in a debate last year they would reject a deficit reduction deal that paired $1 in revenue increases for every $10 in spending cuts."

abc says:
"Pure talking points except when Obama had his super majority he failed to include the GOP into any meetings whether it was the stimulus or Obama care."

This is a lie. He had extensive meetings with the GOP, particularily on health care in which he incorperated a number of their suggestions, including the invidual mandate without a public option.

Yeah, Obama sucks. I can't see how Romney's going to be much better to be honest. We have dark days ahead in this country of ours.

That's not an answer. What part of his campaign agenda was blocked by Republicans in those first two years. The stimulus? Nope. Health Care? Nope.
