    If the Obama administration knew Republicans were going to stonewall them from the start, why didn't they adopt a more partisan, confrontational tone?
    Shit, the Dems did nothing except ask "Please sir, may I have another?" every time the GOP stymied their agenda.  

    Frankly, this episode reflects worse on the spineless Senate Dems who rolled over instead of fighting, than it does on the Senate GOPers, who fought for power and won.

      if this is true, and the administration knew the republicans were going to obstruct them at every turn, then why did they place bipartisanship at the top of their agenda for ~3 years?

      Unbelievable.
