With President Barack Obama in office the Democrats control the White House.
They enjoy a significant majority in the House.
And in the Senate they are oh so close to that fillibuster-proof majority.
When it comes to national political power, the Republicans currently have nothing. But with support for the Democratic-owned bloated "stimulus" plan slipping and the economic impact of said plan being seriously questioned, the GOP may want to adopt the words of a natural-born world-shaker:
"Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand."
