They'll be sorry if they do. People have had it with the obstruction.

They will simply say they are protecting the American people from the socialist Kenyan agenda. It is their patriotic duty to stop the duly elected President you see.

I hope they change the rules in the Senate to keep them from being able to endlessly filibuster. (I'm assuming we keep the Senate majority.)

<..> * If Romney wins the presidency, don’t expect Senate Democrats to cooperate with him, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) said Friday. ”Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his ‘severely conservative’ agenda is laughable. In fact, Mitt Romney’s Tea Party agenda has already been rejected in the Senate,” Reid said.

Just so the wingers don't get any funny ideas!!!

If either - Romney or Obama - wins, I expect that you will see gridlock.
I see no reason to think otherwise.

One change that will help is to eliminate political re apportionment; to make many more seats competitive.

To your point Ohio has Issue 2 on the ballot Tuesday which would take create a non-partisan board to do redistricting. I believe it also includes a mandate that all new districts be drawn to keep communities intact as far as possible to eliminate these ridiculous districts we have today.

I think there is another path to reduce the gridlock however. Harry Reid can force through changes to the filibuster rules to make it harder or impossible for the minority to completely kill bills and appointments. There are several ideas on the table from 2011 that should be acted on in 2013. The Republicans have shown they cannot be trusted to live up to their word so changing the filibuster is a necessity to get things done in the next 4 years.

AZ supposedly has an independent board (as voted on by AZ residents) to redistrict but that didn't stop ol' Gov Bony Finger from trying to fire the board's leader so she could get what she wanted most, a plan that was very friendly to only the Republicans. The BS and temper tantrums never, ever, ever stop from that party.

There's nothing more reassuring then realizing the world is crazier than you are.
