Back to study hall, kid.
ooh nice zinger, kid.
the Tea Party were able to get a huge turnout in a midterm election. The opposition almost always have this advantage.
Obamacare is supported by a huge majority of the country when broken into individual parts, the only reason for its opposition is right wing hysteria about death panels and nonsense like that. Much like you see with desperate Fox news trying anything they can to drum up Libya Libya Libya 24 hours a day by cherry picking pieces of information and painting an absurd picture that's obviously silly.
Of course none of this has to do with your original assertion that Obama had a meaningful majority for 2 years when he had to bypass the filibuster to get through a single thing and then didn't have that ability outside of the first 6 months.
lol at the dopes in this forum trying to cling to anything they can no matter how obviously at odds with the facts or silly it is.
"Obamacare gonna cost 100 trillion dollarzzzz zomg"
"Jay z and Jamie Foxx!!!"
"the world hates us!" - this one i especially like from probable Bush supporters, Obama crushing Romney in favorability polls in every single country on earth except Pakistan.
"herp derp his middle name is Hussein!"
"he hasn't managed to create magic on the economy after the worst recession in 70 years!"
"he won't respond to and validate the right wing scandal factory when it comes to Libya libya Libya!"
It's like dealing with a bunch of children.
