    From day 1 the GOP in congress made it clear that they would block anything this President wanted. They even went so far as to say that out loud.

    When the President has played hard ball the media has jumped all over him while giving air time to the GOP congress critters as the cry their tears of regret because of that mean, angry black man.

    There has never been an opposition party that is as willing as this one to outright destroy the country to stop their opponent. Blaming the President for this is very MoDoish.

    Most of the people taking a hard line against us are firmly convinced that they are the last defenders of civilization... The last stronghold of mother, God, home and apple pie and they're full of shit! David Crosby, Journey Thru the Past.

      if destroying Barack is what they wanted.

      THAT wasn't an actual issue.

      The voters, we can assume wanted REPRESENTATION, they wanted a Senator or representative who would stand up for their interests.

      Instead, they choose to 'destroy Obama' and block CFPA, and water down environmental law, and allow banks to regulate their own settlements over foreclosures, and negotiate tax laws in favor of the uber wealthy, etc.

      Who REPRESENTS the voters?  No one, it seems.

      2014, they ought to be called on this, for all the issues where they failed to meet the public's trust.
