Dems did NOT have 2 years! It took almost 8 months for Al Franken to be recognized as winner in Minnesota. Two months later Ted Kennedy passed away, then Massachusetts elected Scott Brown. Besides, the Republicans filibustered everything put forth, and it takes a SUPERmajority by current Senate rules to break a filibuster. Based on his flip-flops and etch-a-sketch moments, Romney will throw the country under the train so he can ride first class!
