    So Obama is do to nothing as far as the House of Representatives is concerned.. No more government: no more spending on green tech stimulus, (the Script says clearly there is no global warming and that we are here to plunder the earth). No more spending on education (the Script says clearly not everyone is to know and nothing about lack of skilled workforce for new future tech industry/machinery (green, lean & clean & small). No more taxes (the Script and the Constitution say..oh hell). There is no deficit problem. No infrastructure problem (the land of the ingenius Internet and web creators is now nr. 27 in broad band speed and number of household connections). Is GOP going to shut down America by blocking executive powers of federal government (fundses reaching their destiny and such), as they have done before? I would not be surprised, for they believe Americans are unique and magic people who will reinvent economy and prosperity without any government (FDR was a bloody commie too), simply by being true 'Americans' (and not Muslim-socialists America-haters), just like that. In case someone is counting on Reagonomics revisited, that's where the bubble began that exploded about 2,5 years ago. GOP are dinosaurs in a backstage fight who will end up left behind, desillusioned. The world changes America, and is catching up. Once you were the pragmatic people hell bent on bold, yet workable and effective solutions. After winning the cold war you have become ideologists as frozen in ideological mantra's and Pavlov's as the Soviets were, but the other way around. There is still hope, a different Obama, a second term, all breaks removed, FDR revisited!
