Quoth Harry
1) No budget passed by Senate in 3 years
2) Scuttled any Congressional action on the Fiscal
Cliff, In advance.
Now there’s a real Dem bipartisan for you.

The Repubs have been way too bipartisan for years and thus have become the tax collectors for the welfars state.

The Dems of the 1900’s and the Dems in Repub clothing like TR have created this Government by and for Fantasy that will collapse. Like children blaming parents for letting them make mistakes.

Articles like this are telegraphed from some delusional dreamland.

And when Democrats talk about ‘getting things done’ these days, they always mean doing what they want. Clinton was able to ‘get things done’ with Republicans because he couldn’t get a deal from within his own party, so he had to give Republicans a bone. Bush was able to ‘get things done’ because the Blue Dogs had constituents who were far more conservative than coastal/college town leftists. In both cases, the deals that got done simply reflected the electorate – there’s that messy democracy thing.

He’s pathological, he does it every time.
