    community which has essentially bought into the argument that Obama is anti-business to wake up and realize that these GOPers are crazy and will take down the entire economy in order to gain power.   Business does better when Democrats are in office.  Instead of complaining about regulations, why not work with Dems to achieve a fair and reasonable system that works for everyone.  It's what used to happen in the 50's, 60's and 70's and a bit in the 90's.

      Though you might not have liked the direction and policies of the Reagan administration, Tip O'Neill was one hell of a politician -- one who did not see eye to eye with Reagan -- and the two of them managed to get some things done in a way that simply doesn't happen any more.
