It does seem that committed representatives, when in opposition to this administration, are routinely and automatically deemed "obstructionist" or worse. No credit given for a principled (albeit forceful) approach to opposing legislation that runs counter to the wishes of their constituency. Perhaps that auto-damnation is a big part of the reason for the extinction of compromise as a way forward. To many, this administration is every bit as intractable as the opposition. Stopping the realization of this administration's agenda is no less legitimate than support for furthering the same ideas.
