Some of my liberal friends are whining about how the evil Republicans blocked a bunch of legislation, and how they are therefore useless and need to go. Specifically because the Tea Party elected them to do stuff.
They did: they elected them to block legislation (and overturn it wherever possible).
The problem with criticizing the GOP for being the party of No is that more than half the nation has been saying “No” as loudly as they can. If you want me to fire someone because he’s actually doing what I hired him to do, you are stupid. Quod Erat Demonstrandum.
So much for that rhetoric.
