    I think we all suspected they would double down on the obstruction and craziness, despite any hope of the GOP coming to its senses.

    The president and the rest of the Democrats need to hammer the GOP over this and call them out in front of the American people whenever they pull the "we can't hurt job creators by raising their taxes by 4%!!!" bullshit.

    You could kind of hear a sense of anxiety in their rhetoric today. Even Rush admitted the GOP's problem on his show this afternoon by saying, "We are outnumbered."

    It's time we all act like the ants in "A Bug's Life". Realize our strength in numbers and our conviction, then harness that strength to, politically, beat the Republican Party into submission and drag them kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

    We need to start pulling a Karl Rove on their asses. Turn their defense of "job creators" into a liability for them. Blame them for low wages, income inequality and dilapidated infrastructure. We need to start pointing fucking fingers at these people.

    They are going to bluff hard for the next four years. We need to call every single one of them. If we do, they will fold like a napkin every time.
