It's almost like they're purposely blocking every bill Obama throws at them until they water it down so much that it doesn't improve anything at all. The American people then see it as Obama's failure, which it kind of is since he and the Democrats suck at compromising.
The shit hits the fan and the POTUS naturally gets the blame for it, and then the GOP is back in power in 2012.
Call me an idiot or a big bad socialist Nazi sympathizer
but that's just what I've noticed... I'm sure this Congress isn't the first to do shit like this either.
Im not fan of Congress and Obama is anything but bipartisan. Bipartisanship and compromise are over rated anyway (worthless half measures). Give Obama credit he won in '08 with large majorities in Congress and got almost everything he wanted with little to no compromise (input from Republicans). In the immortal words of Rev. Wright "The chickens are coming home to roost" in 2012 and it will be another wave election against the Democrats and some RINO Republicans who will be voted out in big numbers again. Republican will win the WH, Retain the House easily and pick up 7 or 8 Senate seats regaining control. You will then hear how important it is to compromise (Code word for Republican bending over and grabbing the ankles giving the Dem minority what it wants)
Sure lets compromise and do it my way
