  •  not pointless (0+ / 0-)

    their strategy of extraordinary obstruction and sabotage was very effective in hurting the country and the D party.

    it also hurt their own party a lot, but i think they were politically correct that it was strategically better to hurt obama than to try to rebuild the R party's image, b/c a 2 party system always gives the opposition good chances.

    •  Maybe 'nihilistic' would be a better term (1+ / 0-)

      Either way, Republicans have fought hard to allow nothing useful be done in Congress for 4 years.

      What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.
