Was electing Obama worth getting a GOP Congress?

By electing Barack Obama in 2008, we almost assured ourselves that we would be electing a Republican Congress in 2010 and likely for the next decade.  His incompetence and inability to get anything done is fueling the biggest Republican landslide we have ever seen.  My question is, was it all worth it?

http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/

Democrats appear to have traded control of Congress for the next decade for a quick pyrrhic victory at the Presidential level that will likely have disastrous consequences for Democrats over the next decade and likely longer.  Democrats never get anything done.  They want things like universal healthcare and cap and trade that are not and will never be possible in this country.  Democratic Congresses are best at keeping Republican Presidents in check.  There is a reason why Democrats have not passed any significant legislation since 1965.  

Republicans knew exactly what they were doing in 2008.  They allowed the economy and markets to fall apart and do nothing about it to trap Obama into a win and then lay all the blame for the wreck on him and Democrats and they knew the American people were stupid enough to fall for it.  They knew Obama would be too incompetent to get much of anything done and they cheered his victory.  Now are laughing their way all the way to control of Congress in 2010.  

We messed up big.

Re: He is making us lose it? Isn't he!! Oh man...

All we have to do is convince the congressional republican caucus that passing single payer health care and then resigning their seats will ensure a GOP permanent majority.

You offer no solutions

just batshit crazy paranoid worrying and impending doom. You offer no solution. Instead you right a ridiculous diary lamenting the fact that a Democratic President was elected, that we "sacrificed" Congress to elect a Democratic President and we should've just elected a Republican president so we can keep Congress, and what? have a better chance to win the Presidency in 2012 that we can't win cause otherwise we lose Congress.

You're either a troll or a sick person. I think troll since you found yourself reborn as TedNewman or BobsTegas or whatever your calling yourself now on the other sites...but sometimes you were serious as UpstateDem, so I don't know anymore.

You are not helpful, and you are not telling us anything we don't already know, so do us a favor and take your chicken little shitshow somewhere else.

Re: You offer no solutions

Well I am certainly not all of those people you list.  I think we should simply cede the Presidency to Republicans until the country shifts more leftward and until then, use Congress to stop Republicans from moving us too far to the right.

Go back to Dkos, Upstate Dem. I think you've been around too many REpublcians and read too much press hyberpole about the next election.

Re: Was electing Obama worth getting a GOP Congres

Of all the piss poor diaries you have written, either under this screen name or another, this one surely takes the prize as the stupidest.

I am going to paraphrase a quote by Mark Twain you should take to heart.

It's sometimes better to be thought a fool than to put fingers to keyboard and remove all doubt.

This is it?

A week or so since your last turd, and this is all you could come up with?

There is hardly anythings worse then really lame, but BORING and really lame has to be it.

Hell, at least in the primary war days we had Teh Engels, and NancyK, Caro....even the trolls here are a joke now.

Re: This is it?

I am sure that next week's turd will involve a 'prediction' that Democrats will lose the governorships of New Jersey and Virginia in November, and that it's Obama's fault and Democrats would have been much better off had we elected John McCain in November (forgetting of course that over the past 44 years or so, in neither state has the party holding the White House has won either governorship the year after its election).

I blame the Beatles

There is a reason why Democrats have not passed any significant legislation since 1965.

Clearly that coincides with the release of Rubber Soul, IMHO the True Beatles Masterpiece, and album that changed forever Rock Music.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubber_Soul

Since Rubber Soul's release end of 1965, it's basically been all downhill.

Re: I blame the Beatles

You're right about that.  Rubber Soul I mean.  Sick of hearing about Sargent Pepper, a few good songs aside "Good Morning", et. al.

Was fiscal restraint worth the earth's destruction

NASA's budget has been cut, and it is inevitable that the earth will be destroyed by an asteroid.  Was a momentary pyrrhic victory worth the end of all life on earth?  WAS IT KENT?!

Re: No, the GOP Wanted to Win the Election

The GOP didn't want the financial meltdown and wanted to win the 2008 presidential election. They had a goal of replacing Justice Stevens on the Supreme Court with a radical right winger.

Not only did the GOP want to overturn Roe v. Wade, but they want to make all social programs and all rules and regulations enacted by state and federal governments since 1850 held unconstitutional using the Commerce Clause and/or Takings Clause of the Fifth Amemdment of the US Constitution.

The GOP was so close of realizing their dreams of making America into a Theocratic Libertarian Authoritarian Society. No, the GOP wanted to win the 2008 election. What they didn't count on was that their economic theories they religiously believe in our wrong.

Just a small argument with your thesis

I think

Theocratic Libertarian Authoritarian Society.

Is really

Theocratic Corporate Authoritarian Society.

While the T-baggers may be running around hand and hand with the Paulites, the actual meat and muscle in the Republican party is NOT libertarian.

They may be willing to be fellow travelers and use the Paulites as foot soldiers, but they are not compatable in a lot of viewpoints.

Dick Cheney is hardly a libertarian.

The Republican party DOESN'T want to dismantle the Fed, or stop using the US military as an arm of corporate hegemony.

The second bible of the Republican party IS NOT the Fountainhead, but the Wall Street Journal.

Our Senate Democrats are the real problem

Despite Obama bending over backwards to appease the middle, you got a few Blue Dogs with disproportionate respect for their views despite their terrible track record in being right on issues in the last decade. Obama's job gets tougher when he has to deal with these morons in the senate who are more concerned with getting Lievberman a chairmanship(oh, whatever happened to that promise, Bayh, that getting Lieberman would make our Presidet's agenda much easier to vote on?).

People whio have been right on the issues, such as Feingold, Wes Clark, Dean have not been given much importance by the party. Obama is partly to blame for the people he surrounds himself with. But whenever he has tried to do a good thing, he gets resistance from his own party.

Our Senate Democrats didnt even have an alternative to present Obama when he was going about his bank welfare bailout.

They were floating around an alternative

but it was a hell of a lot worse.

Senate Democrats have always been issues to Democratic Presidents...since Truman.

Re: Was electing Obama worth getting a GOP Con

I blame myself, really.  If I had listened to Kent's warnings earlier, I could have helped the Democratic party by voting for McCain/Palin instead of being a tool of the GOP and voting for Obama/Biden.

I messed up big.  Sorry everyone.  :(

Re: Was electing Obama worth getting a GOP Con

Words are cheap.  Sorry, but I'm too busy trying to pull the knife you stuck in my back by voting for Obama/Biden to care.
