Because never before has one party not only controlled the entire government, but also controls the Media, and the minds of most Americans who do not have the time to do more than watch the nightly news, and absorb what ever the Obama press tells them to think. At least when Bush was in control, and the Republicans had their super thin majority in congress, we had a press that was openly opposed to the Republicans and worked to show their misdeeds to us all. Hell they even made some up. Now we have a press that is doing what it can to provide cover for the President and Congress. Now we have a press that is in bed with the Government. Yay.
