Republicans right now have the best of both worlds, they are still getting everything they want, still maintaining their lifestyle, and have a democrat in the white house to blame for everything that is wrong because nothing is changing. Plus their party is being labeled and perceived as the party of the stupid so most don't believe they have the brains to be behind anything. Still getting what they want, but perceived as not having the power or the brains to be the reason they still have it or why nothing has changed. You can't ask for anything better than that. Believe me, they can do the math.
