    Obama ?would object? to annihilation of Republican Party | The Ticket - Yahoo! News

    Face it. The GOP is so badly splintered that it may never recover for many years. At this point there is no current GOP politician that the entire party could ever rally behind for POTUS.

    The two party system is not what the founders envisioned as completely functional. The shortcomings of a two party system lead to complete dysfunction....as we see now.

    Of course he objects, with no GOP he "and the democrat party" have noone to blame for their failures.

    It was designed to be dysfunctional, it's called checks and balances.

    Dictatorship was not meant to be easy, nor is the reduction of liberties.

    Our government was designed to be "dysfunctional" when there was a lack of consensus. This worked fairly well for the first 200 years, but the New Democratic Party has figured a way around it: Pass bills which illegally impose increased future expenditures, and then pass "continuing resolutions" instead of Constitutionally mandated budgets in order to stifle debate. Do you think this perversion can last forever?

    Of course not. Dysfunctional within the context of govt passing burdensome laws against its citizens, not responsible and unaccountable.
