    Why aren't you running for office somewhere?

    I've read your posts for years now, and I think you have what what the nation and The People need in a duly elected representative to the US Congress.

    Also, are you any relation to Craig Pridemore, a politician from SW Washington State? I like Craig, and hope he wins his race for State Auditor, he's smart and progressive.

    that being said...

    A great diary on a serious issue.

    Then again, the Republicans ONLY goal, per Sen Mitch McConnell himself the week the President was inaugurated in 2009, was to "deny President Obama a second term".

    If he gets himself re-elected.... what the hell will they do? Continue to Obstruct everything? Then the US Electorate will have had 8 years of watching them act like a pack of rabid-four-year-olds chanting "I'm taking my ball and going home" day after week after year.

    Which will make 2016 a cakewalk for whomever the Democrats run, because who will vote for the rotten, little 4 year old who's been causing trouble for eight long years?

    Really, it's the first time I've thought about post-November 6, 2016 in a political sense.

    What the fuck is the GOP gameplan for a 2nd Obama term as US President?

    Has anyone read anything about this period of time and GOP plans re: US Senate and US House and obstructionism?
