One of the most frustrating things about the current mess in Washington is watching the beating the Obama administration has taken. Congress has effectively imploded—which makes it virtually impossible for the Obama administration to get anything done. Because I think Obama has thus far done an excellent job in a tough situation—this is tough to watch.
I realized a few days ago that it’s not just Obama suffering from the catastrophe in Congress. It’s the entire country. This cartoon is pretty much spot on.
Blaming the one guy in the room who’s willing to compromise for the damaging political rigidity around him is simply unfair, if you ask us.
