    Any major action has to come through the House of Representatives where they still have a majority.  If the Republicans vote in block as they have, everything stops dead.  The bully pulpit still goes through the right wing media and will get distorted and cherry picked.  The vast majority of House members truly don't care if they lose their house seats in 2014 because their benefactors are most likely guaranteeing them financial bliss for their stonewalling.  

    Stating reality is not conceding anything.  Reality may not be what you want or expect.
