The one sided nature of how you see things is part of the problem, not the solution.
In your world, anything beyond 100% submission to your side is obstruction. Yet when your own side does everything you lament here (and they do), you seem to fail totally to see it.
Team-based Politics does not help an electorate who sees both sides as cuplable and both sides as self-interested and both sides as inefficient, ineffective and corrupt when in power as they are. And they see a Federal Leviathan that rolls on, spending up a storm, no matter who is in charge.[/QUOTE]
I'm looking for compromise, Warfish. Not "100%" submission. Give me something that the GOP compromised on in the past 4 years with the President Obama?
The payroll tax cut/unemployment benefit extensions? Anything else?
Two years in, 13 of 108 executive appointments confirmed, during a serious recession and debt crises. The last three Presidents all had over 77% of their appointments confirmed by that same time.
