    I mean, it's not like a simple majority vote could remove these Republicans' strangle hold on procedural motions that cause common sense legislation to die a very embarrassing death... oh wait.

    Sure, sure. The POTUS has very little impact on legislation in the grand scheme of things.  And the diarist is correct in his assertion that President Obama is not much to blame here.

    The blame should be split between aggressively stupid conservatives and the callow, feckless, mind-numbingly-incompetent-verging-on-complicity Democratic establishment in Congress.

      •  Like getting Reid as Majority Leader in 2006? (0+ / 0-)

        I'm so tired of these purveyors of Sternly Worded Letters.

        At least the Republicans are honest in their opposition to progressive legislation. Harry Reid and too many "Democrats" in the Senate would have you believe they support anything that the party base does.  The sad thing is how many of the party base still buy into his bullshit.
