The American People Have Spoken......But We Didn't Hear them
The past election was going to be a referendum against the Left, the "socialists," the "moochers," the "un-American Kenyan communist fascist illegal ruler-in-chief' and his "rabid followers"...... anybody who could see through the extreme Right's Tea Party incarnation and who dared to get the truth out  against it. The result was in the bag...the Koch Brothers and Karl Rove guaranteed it. didn't quite happen that way. Not everyone was totally was one hundred per cent in the Obama camp, but deep down inside they felt that something wasn't quite kosher in GOP land.

That is....except in the Republican political world. Hence we have a repeat of:

"Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday he has no regrets about saying the GOP’s top priority over the next two years will be to make Barack Obama a one-term president, calling Democratic attacks over the line “laughable.”........ They almost have nothing to say to the American people.”

Also, quoting Trent Lott Senate Minority Leader in 2007: “The strategy of being obstructionist can work or fail… So far it’s working for us.”

They are still trying to act as if nothing has changed:
Republicans "know they have the debt ceiling" as leverage, Corker continued. "Hopefully, we'll do the same thing we did last time. And that is if the president wants to raise the debt limit..... (we cut)......hopefully this time, it is mostly oriented towards entitlement and with no process."

What is totally incomprehensible is everything they are NOW against, they were perfectly happy with decades ago.

We won, thank you. The people won. They lost, electorally and popularly. But we know what it's all really about.

It's all about control...or keeping "what's theirs."

Well now..there's been a slight change of tone this afternoon:
"... Mr. Corker is part of a group of Republicans who say that the party ultimately will have to yield to the Obama demand of higher tax rates for top earners, potentially back to the levels that prevailed under President Bill Clinton.That group of Republicans, he said on Fox, was beginning to realize “that we don’t have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end” – but that a tax-rate concession could be converted, jiu-jitsu style, into a tactical advantage."
