    I was saying a lot of this four years ago when the first thing pundits wanted to talk about was how into the wilderness the Republicans were after the spanking they got it '06 and '08. What could they possibly do to get back power?  It worried me from the get go that the media felt it their duty to help them figure it out and were all too happy to give tons of airtime to the tea party.  

    What also bothered me was the attitude of many that after griping for  eight years that we didn't want a bully in the white House and the need to appreciate separation of powers, suddenly some were really pissed that our guy wasn't a bully. A whole lot of "He could just sign an executive order to do (fill in the blank)."

    It baffles the mind that the behavior of the Republicans is not news all the time, every day! But alas, as a typical example of "reporting" there has been a headline on Huff Po all day that the Republicans are blaming flight delays on Obama. Seriously! Why does every ridiculous bat-shit crazy thing they say have to be reported?! The headline should be, "Republicans Falsely Blame Obama for Flight Delays." And I would hate to see the number of articles that would come up if I googled "Democrats blame Obama for..."

    I don't mean to be a bitch, but...
