Captain, the bottom line is this: Obama and the Democrats are implementing their agenda; there is not a thing Republicans can do about it. If the agenda succeeds, we come out of the recession next year. If it fails, we get 25% unemployment, 20% inflation and Republicans come back to power.
Most of the reasonable people are hoping that Obama succeeds. Diehard Republicans (like Limbaugh and others) are hoping that Obama fails and USA ends up with 25% unemployment and 20% inflation.
the Democrats have unwittingly sown the seeds of the demise of their party (kinda like the Cdn Liberals - agreed?)
OK, so are you predicting that in four years the Democratic Party will be dead? OK, I will hold you to it, I will copy this post and store it on my hard disk (as I have copied Yukon Jack’s, post, confidently predicting that Republicans will gain control of Senate and House in 2010 and will win the presidency in 2012, I am going to hold him to it), and dig it up in four years, when presumably Democratic Party will be dead, Republican Party will be the only party remaining and USA will have a one party rule perpetually (oh, the happy days!).
So, you think Liberal party is dead, do you? Do you also think that the Messiah will now rule in perpetuity? You are evidently confusing Canada with Alberta. Paradise (in the form of perpetual conservative, far right, religious right rule) appeared in Alberta a long time ago. Unfortunately for you (and fortunately for rest of Canada), Hell will appear on earth soon enough in the form of Liberal rule.
Anyway, Liberals governed for 13 years; let us see low long your Messiah rules.
