    There is a simple solution we can do even before the next election: start treating each filibuster as an obstruction in itself and make the Republicans pay a price for it.

    Obama has to start demanding straight up or down votes, and remind the GOP that they were flinging that accusation at Democrats after a handful of filibusters over extremists that Bush had nominated to the Federal bench.

    Also, we need to debunk the lie that the media is liberally biased. With all the obstructions the GOP has put down, you have to wonder how any member of the media could still be afraid of being branded as liberally biased for telling the truth.

    The furor over Friday's [10.5] job report revealed a political movement that is rooting for American failure, so obsessed with taking down Obama that good news drives its members into a blind rage. -Paul Krugman
