    2 YEARS of complete Democrat control of the US Government and what did we get?
    An unconstitutional grab bag of a law that Always defied fiscal gravity and was Never gonna provide the services advertised.
    If all that 2009-11 time and effort had been spent promoting the private sector and allowing the business community the confidence to invest knowing DC had their back (instead of a knife in their back)…our unemployment rate might have been at 5% instead of 15% (the real number)

      Mr. Hopey, which two years are you pretending our government was in complete control of the Democratic Party?

      • LastBestHope

        fixed…for you old pal

        Now tell US, what ever happen to Hope And Change? Your hero’s 2008 campaign mantra is now the butt of endless jokes. Does that make you sad?

        You can admit being embarrased by Obama…we’ll understand

        • realitybasedbob

          I’m sorry, Mr. Hopey, but did you answer my question about which years you claim the Democratic Party completely controlled our government?

          • LastBestHope

            It’s in my post bob. Now you didn’t answer my ??….it’s ok if you don’t wanna discuss it. We’ll understand.

          • realitybasedbob

            Mr. Hopey, do you understand what complete control means?

            If you think your answer is yes, please tell us how many Senators the Democratic Party had during those years as well as how many House members, please be sure to include Democratic Party Appointed Supreme Court Justices were serving during those years, as they too are part of our government.

            For bonus points, please tell us how many votes it takes to have a veto proof House of Representatives Senate.

          • Proof

             Did you think that Obama would veto anything passed by a majority of Democrats in the House and Senate in the first two years of his  administration? On what basis? Show your work.

          • realitybasedbob

            Here ya go poof.
            Is this what you’re looking for?

            December 30, 2009: Vetoed H.J.Res. 64, Making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2010, and for other purposes. Override attempt failed in House.[32]

            October 7, 2010: Vetoed H.R. 3808, the Interstate Recognition of Notarizations Act of 2010. Override attempt in the House failed.[33]

            Would you like to help Mr. Hopey out and tell him what constitutes a super majority?

            Why is it that I am the only one providing actual facts on this blog?

          • Proof

             Sorry, Nutterbob! I didn’t recall the Bamster vetoing anything in the last three and a half years. But then, I haven’t had my lips pressed against his butt like you have either. Now give us another irrelevant comment and pat yourself on the back

          • realitybasedbob

            It must be fun for nutters like you to move goal posts, thinking you’re clever.

            Did you think that Obama would veto anything passed by a majority of
            Democrats in the House and Senate in the first two years of his 

            I didn’t recall the Bamster vetoing anything in the last three and a half years.

            Nutters, they crack me up!

          • Proof

             So, in what passes for your mind, holding Obama accountable for not keeping the majority of his campaign promises or actually doing anything to improve the country (for anyone other than his union buddies and campaign contributors), while his party had a majority in both the House and Senate is “moving the goalposts”?

            There are no “goal posts” in golf, Nutterbob, which is the only thing the Bamboozler-in-Chief seems able to cope with. 100 rounds and counting!

            And because you seem to be math impaired, the fact that I did not and frankly do not recall a veto from the Bamster in the past three and a half years, that includes the first two years of his presidency when his party held the majority in both houses. You see, because three and a half is greater than two. No wonder you had trouble figuring out when the 19th century ended, Nutterbob!

            See if a six year old somewhere can help you with your math? (And maybe tutor you on headline writing as well?)

          • realitybasedbob

            Thank you for confirming your faulty memory, poof.

          • Proof

            I admitted my faulty memory (or perhaps lack of interest in the Bamster). Thanks for confirming your pre-elementary school math skills, Nutterbob.

          • realitybasedbob

            Thank you for re-confirming your faulty memory, poof. 

          • realitybasedbob

            poof, did you forget that the easiest way to  debunk a nutter’s claim is to look it up?

            Poor poof, nut much upstairs, but what’s left sure can make him look dumb.

          • Proof

             I had forgotten Obama’s lack of leadership skills.He could not lead or inspire members of his own party, such as Harry Reid, to pass a budget in the Senate in the last three years,either.

            Now go cut and paste something Nutterbob and put a nonsensical, convoluted headline on it… like you always do.

    The Democratic Supermajority: What Does It Mean?
    Apr 28 2009, Apr 28 2009,  

    “Assuming Al Franken is seated in the U.S. Senate, the Democratic Party will now have what it coveted and failed to attain in the 2008 election: a 60-seat supermajority in the upper chamber, and the ability to pass legislation without a single Republican vote, unfettered by filibusters and free to put its consensus directly on President Obama’s desk.”

    And what did we get? ObamaCare. The worst piece of law never read before it was jammed thru Congress. Let’s see if Pelosi takes another LOL walk after the SCOTUS strikes down all that wasted time and money….that could have been spent on getting Americans back to work,

    • realitybasedbob

      Again, Mr. Hopey, ya gotta give us all the facts and not just regurgitate what you’ve heard on right wing hate radio.

      What this shows is is that there were only two time periods during the 111th Congress when the Democrats had a 60 seat majority:

      From July 7. 2009 (when Al Franken was officially seated as the Senator from Minnesota after the last of Norm Coleman’s challenges came to an end) to August 25, 2009 (when Ted Kennedy died, although Kennedy’s illness had kept him from voting for several weeks before that date at least); and

      From September 25, 2009 (when Paul Kirk was appointed to replace Kennedy) to February 4, 2010 (when Scott Brown took office after defeating Martha Coakley);

      For one day in September 2009, Republicans lacked 40 votes due to the resignation of Mel Martinez, who was replaced the next day by George LeMieux

      So, to the extent there was a filibuster proof majority in the Senate it lasted during two brief periods which lasted for a total of just over five months when counted altogether (and Congress was in its traditional summer recess for most of the July-August 2009 time frame).

      It’s important to keep this fact in mind when discussing what could have happened in the 111th Congress, I think, and it’s probably something I haven’t kept in mind myself in the past.

      Even the author of the linked article has come to an incorrect conclusion.
      The Democratic Party had 58 seats.
