This is going to be a very short and simple post because I’m getting tired of seeing Democrat political hacks in this administration blaming “obstructionist” Republicans from preventing Obama from getting his agenda items passed.  I am no way a Republican supporter – I am not a registered Republican.  However, I think the record needs to be set straight.  We’ll let the facts speak for themselves:

Number of Total Senators = 100

Number of Democrat Senators = 58

Number of Republican Senators= 40

Number of Independent Senators = 2 (Both caucus with Democrats).

Number of votes needed to pass ANY legislation = 51

Can someone please tell me how the Republicans are obstructing anything?  Even with Scott Brown coming in – that will give the Republicans 41 votes and the Democrats 57 (not including the Independents).  The Republicans could not mount any kind of defense of any freakin bill.  So – how exactly is it that the Republicans are blocking passage of any bills in the Senate?

Total Number of Representatives in The House – 435

Total Number of Democrat Representatives = 256

Total Number of Republican Representatives – 178

Total Number of Independent Representatives = 0

There is currently 1 vacant seat.

Number of votes needed to pass ANY Legislation (51%) = 222

Again – even in the House – they have 34 more people than is required to pass legislation.  Again, the Republicans don’t have enough to mount a defense against any bill.

Between the House and The Senate – They are both controlled by a large enough majority that any bill written could be passed without a single Republican vote.  The Republicans can essentially stay at home for all of 2010 and twiddle their thumbs.  They had no power in 2009 – the have no power in 2010.  All Scott Brown will do now is enable the Republicans to mount a filibuster.  That just means that Harry Reid can no longer shut down debate whenever he feels like it.  You need 60 votes to shut down debate.  Filibusters eventually end – and – in the end – the Democrats will still have enough votes on their own without Republicans to pass whatever the hell they want.

Before you moonbats on the left start declaring Republicans as “The Party of No” and “obstructionists” I suggest you look to the Democratic party itself.  The only one’s obstructing Obama’s agenda are Democrats.  The reason they keep looking to the Republicans and blaming them is because the Democrats don’t want to be the only one’s caught holding the bag when this house of cards coming falling down.  They want to be able to point at the Republicans and say “They voted for it too!”  The Democrats own every piece of legislation passed in this country since 2007.  They and they alone are responsible for the total destruction of this economy because of their policies.  They and they alone have the majority vote without Republicans.

You see – we’re awake now – and – we know who is to blame.  Sure, Republicans are scumbags too – that’s why they are no longer in power – but – now we see who the BIGGEST scumbags are – progressive democrats that hate this country and the individual liberty and freedom it affords us.  Democrats and Obama own this mess.  Stop blaming Bush and the Republicans – they haven’t been able to mount any kind of defense in the last 4 years.

  • BoBo:
    That about sums it up my friend. They controlled the purse strings from 2006 on. I went nuts over the Bush spending and now I find myself going nuclear over Obama’s. Hack’s is almost too kind for these idiots! Hell, Obama’s a lawyer and he’s basically given grounds for mistrial in the KSM 9/11 case. He actually went on NBC and stated the man was guilty and will be executed. This is the man chosen to lead America? His judgement is severely lacking and never has one been so out of touch with the American people along with the rest of his minions in Congress. No one buys the blame game anymore. TEA PARTY EXPRESS HERE WE COME!!
