3. it's smart politics

Obama was set up like the new Reagan/FDR hybrid, tasked to save the country from the brink of disaster and usher in a new era of progressive change.

The GOP wasn't going to let that happen. They weren't just going to let a new president come in and actually fix a mess their party had made and become a legend.

They had one card in their hand and they played it over and over - obstruct, obstruct, obstruct.

It was really their only choice, politically, or else the party would have totally become irrelevant as it wilted under the achievements Obama would have had.
