Obstructionism

OBSTRUCTIONISM….Without getting into the question of whether this particular video is effective or not, I think Democrats are smart to expend some effort highlighting Republican obstructionism in the 110th Congress. It’s an easy charge to make stick, since it’s plainly true, and it has two equally important targets: the press and the public. The press, for its part, needs to get over its “both sides are equally at fault” schtick, and the public, for its part, needs to know why nothing seems to be getting done in Congress. Right now, all they see are headlines telling them that “Congress Fails to Act” on this, that, and the other. They need to know exactly who’s responsible for that.
