    I fully agree this is the worst congress ever. Poor leadership with more and more ridiculous political games. Then there is the Tea Party wierdo influence.

    Its really not anyones fault except the people who were bought and paid for that got elected into congress. The system is broke. Hell, the COUNTRY is broke. Why? Congress members have to pay back favors.

    Ornstein is plugging a book. Even the most partisan political observer would not label a congress in 7 months but Ornstein was working on a deadline. Obviously his words were written before the 112 congress forced the administration to face cutbacks in spending. For that reason alone the 112 should be viewed as the congress that saved the Country from socialism.

    I think Congress showed its best this time. Yeah, it was a bit of a battle, but that's just how Democratic Republic politics works out: everybody gets what nobody wants.

    Even so, it's better than being lorded over by a harsh dictatorial King who taxes but doesn't pay any attention at all to subjects living in a foreign country.
