Man, if Obama had prepped for the first debate this election would be over already.


What was he gonna say?

"Since I took over as president the economy is booming. Unemployment is under 3%. Let me repeat that, 3%. Everybody's working. I cut the national debt in half. Half!! The price of gas is $2.00 a gallon. The housing market couldn't be better. Obamacare has been wonderful for the healthcare system in America. Reelect me America and we'll keep on prospering!!!"

Dude had 4 years to "prep" for this debate with inside information, yet some guy who isn't even holding a political office at the moment trumps him? I wish someone would explain to me why they keep with their support of President Obama.

I drove past Solyndra outside of San Jose, CA in August and all I could do was look and stare at the shell of a company with so much wasted.

Seriously. There really isn't anything positive that he can say about his 1st term. All he could do was attack MR's plans and he couldn't even competently do that.

I think all politicians should get bumped after so long.

The main thing Romney is going to have to do is to get our economy growing again.

Getting rid of the cancer in the WH is the first step. This has to be one of the most imcompetent, corrupt administrations in the history of our country. Add to the fact that they have been extremely hostile to the business sector.

Next is repealing o'trauma care and implementing sensible health-care reforms.

So yes, if Romney does win the GOP takes the Senate and House, the micro-scope will be on them bigtime, no doubt.

You think the left is kooky and notorious now, wait till you see a Romney administration with a GOP controlled Senate and House.

I know this thread is premised on controlling both houses, but what should Mitt's plan of action be if D's retain the senate?

If D's retain the senate, and every attempt to repeal obamacare is blocked on a party line vote (or even worse, tabled by the D Senate leader)?

Dems complain about republican "obstructionists" in the house. What will mitt do if D's in the senate block all attempts?

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.


Agree and really all they have to do is not constrain the economy with bull shite the way Obama and the Dems have:

1. Be diligent is protecting our interests but NO unnecessary wars.
2. Stop dividing our nation. No stupid talk about reparations and redistribution of wealth.
3. Repeal Obamacare and get something passed that is actually done with transparency. I don't want to have to pass some crap to see what's in it.
4. Simplify the damn tax code. Everyone should have a stake in the economy no matter how small it might be.
5. Give tax breaks to businesses who invest with jobs in our economy.
6. Get rid of any regulations that aren't necessary.
7. Reduce the corporate tax rate to encourage corporate investment in the U.S.
8. Encourage production of energy sources here at home with prudent safety and environmental measures. Encourage research on alternative sources of energy but no fricking crony capitalism.

Romney has said that he would issue waivers left and right if that is the case.
Remember, we are going to need only 51 votes in the US Senate to overturn it(reconcilitation).
It is highly probable that the GOP win the Senate with a a 3-4 seat margin

The House has vowed to defund it at every turn.

The main thing is getting rid of obama.

This is my biggest fear if R's gain complete control.

I believe Mitt's plan could work out great, but if we are to launch into another war, all the benefits from mitt's economic plan (with regards to debt and deficit reduction) will be annihilated.

I think if this happens, it will do irreparable long term damage to the GOP. I think that will be the only way Romney can get his tax and economic plans passed, which I think will lead to a "European" style debt crisis in 4-5 years and instead of moderate tax increases, massive tax increase and a large nail in the coffin for a portion of the GOP.

Will these waivers cover the federal tax increases though? Honest question.
