Response to Proud Liberal Dem (Reply #3)

10. I noticed that's how it is

with a lot of people on our side. Some supposed progressives seem to think the President is a king who can just do whatever, and they totally forget about Congress. Last time I checked, we do have a checks-and-balances system in this country. Like you said, they're too busy going after the wrong people. It isn't Obama's fault or the fault of Democrats, moderates, Blue Dogs, etc.; it's the GOP. The Congress Republicans are the reason why we can't get anything done or any sensible legislation passed. They've done nothing but block things like jobs bills, gun laws, and the public option while attempting a bunch of futile votes to repeal Obamacare that are a waste of both taxpayer dollars and time.
