WHen the Democrats were choosing to elect either Hillary or Obamma as thier leader, I told poeple that while it is a groundbreaking first if either one became president, that there would be opposition of all kinds .. especially to Obamma because he is black. This on top of the usuall opposition by one party against another. I predicted it would be VERY HARD for Obamma to get anything of real substance done because of the behind the scenes undermining that would go on.<quoted text>
Bless you Tony for being an excellent fact checker!!!!! I have stated repeatedly I am no fan Obama (I live in Illinois where he was a senator and voted for him then) but it is clearly the Republicans who flat out stated they would not work with him one iota. They ostracized Republicans who compromised with the Dems. They said they would make him a one term President ...... they failed.
It's the Republicans who refuse to do their job and have screwed the citizenry. Votes on the debt and taxes keep coming up and they refuse to work with the President.
As for Benghazi, it was the Republicans who cut spending for security at the embassy and shot down Hillary Clinton's request for funding.
Who cares why it happened or whether Obama initially said it was a protest? It happened and in spite of Administration requests to increase security, Republicans said no ---- Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan included ----- and then the Republicans have the gall to blame the Administration for the security failure .

As to their stonewalling as you described above .. I think the constitution should have laws that force opposing parties to make a vote because otherwise vital actions that need immediate attentoin could be blocked and it could adversely affect the entire country.
