And it still doesn't fly. Republicans over the last four years have been far and away the most contentious and obstructive group of politicians in modern American history -- if not in all of American history. It is plain to see when you look at the record-shattering number of filibusters they've lodged. This is a group that has repeatedly voted against measures that they themselves introduced and/or supported for no other reason than that President Obama approved of them. This is a group that, for the first time in our history, took the country to the brink of default, resulting in our first ever credit downgrade. This is the party whose Senate leader said, at the height of the debt ceiling crisis, that his number one priority was what? To improve the economy? To create jobs? To reduce spending even? No. His number one priority was to beat Obama in 2012.
You would have to be insanely partisan not to see this.
