The country needs bold differences not blurred lines.

We do not have a parliment so multi party Gov can't work here. We also don't have a Politburo, but Obama is trying to make Congress a Politburo in practice. Congress is doing its job by standing against Obama's wishes. He is not an elected monarch. Its job is to be a check against the Pres. Its job is not to further Obama's agenda.
If Cruz wants to become the opposition leader then he needs to fly right and be more careful. Like Byron says, the left can get away with this crap because they will not be held to account by the corrupt media. The same is not true of a republican. They have little margin for error. Its a double standard but the reality of the situation. Look what happened to Palin. I don't know who will emerge? Mike Lee? Marco Rubio? Rand Paul? (Ron Paul is part of the problem facing conservatives)The dems have a similar problem. Hillary is a has been and she's responsible for Bengahzi. I also have doubts that America is ready for a women. Especially one so incompetent.They have nobody to follow Obama either.

What is really interesting are some demographic breakdowns I saw on the last election. Independants overwhelmingly voted for Romney-not Obama. Young voters also did not turn out for Obama like in 08 with many switching to Romney. What was the difference in the vote totals then? It was large numbers of conservatives sitting out the election.
Factor in some urban districts with 140% voter turn out, voting 98% for Obama, in key swing states such as Va, Pa, and Ohio and there you go.
