  •  It isn't. This has never happened before (13+ / 0-)

    in American history. Never before has one party blocked everything the majority party tried to do.

    Actually Obama and Reid have managed to break through that 60 votes--by (shudder) compromising with one or two Rs--amazingly often, which is why Obama now has a record of accomplishment that rivals LBJ's.

    But nothing much is likely to happen for the next two years because the Republicans will control the House. They want to stop Obama by stopping the whole government, and they can do it.

    You wanted Malcolm X but got Jackie Robinson instead. But without Jackie, you'll never get Malcolm.--Commenter on Balloon Juice
