If Romney Wins and the GOP takes the Senate with big numbers...


...and holds the House and they don't get serious shite done in the first two years, then they will deserve to get their asses broomed out like the Dems did in 2010.

But Obama says you can just blame it on the guy before you.

They did a good job for the 6 years they held it between 2000-2006, huh? Man, if Obama had prepped for the first debate this election would be over already.

Agreed. You can see that by the way he's spent the past week talking more about Big Bird and Elmo than his economic plan.

I agree, if the Repubs get full control and don't get shite accomplished, like Obama and the Dems didn't, I would support sweeping them all out of office. Though I wouldn't want to replace them with the current Dem crop either. If only we had more viable options.

I won't defend them...

H/E, if my premise comes true, you will have a much more fiscally conservative President this go around, plus a lot more "Tea Partiers" in the Congress to look at spending.

Do I expect perfection? NO. But they by God better take some substantive steps to get things going in the right direction.

If that happens they better be prepared to tackle everything from taxes to entitlements! Which I hope they do, but from my experience it is much easier for the party NOT in control to complain than it's for the majority party to govern.

I do as well.

As for the rest of your quote, that has been the norm, but I am hopeful that there would be some backbone to do something more than just tread water.

quote:

What the United States needed then (and needs now) was to stimulate investment, not consumption.
By 2003, Mr. Bush grasped this lesson. In that year, he cut the dividend and capital gains rates to 15 percent each, and the economy responded. In two years, stocks rose 20 percent. In three years, $15 trillion of new wealth was created. The U.S. economy added 8 million new jobs from mid-2003 to early 2007, and the median household increased its wealth by $20,000 in real terms.
But the real jolt for tax-cutting opponents was that the 03 Bush tax cuts also generated a massive increase in federal tax receipts. From 2004 to 2007, federal tax revenues increased by $785 billion, the largest four-year increase in American history. According to the Treasury Department, individual and corporate income tax receipts were up 40 percent in the three years following the Bush tax cuts. And (bonus) the rich paid an even higher percentage of the total tax burden than they had at any time in at least the previous 40 years.

Actually they did. Unemployment rates went down steadily that entire period. Go to bureau of labor statistics and look it up.

I'm not gonna give Mitt a preemptive pass should he get elected, but if the D's maintain the senate and subsequently block every attempt to repeal obamacare I can't really fault him for it.

What should mitt do if every obamacare repeal bill that gets to the senate if voted down on a straight party line?

ETA: Speaking in terms of his 1st two years...
