Why the G.O.P. is Resisting Obama

The Moderate Voice discusses the impasse between President Obama's initiatives and the stubborn Republican resistance:
At yesterday’s meeting, the President’s patience worn thin, and he accused Boehner of just wanting to kill all his initiatives, setting off what was reportedly a “testy exchange.”

In effect, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner have chosen not to practice traditional politics but act like a government-in-exile, retreating to the sidelines and sniping until they can return to power.
Smitty, et al., seeks to moderate The Moderate Voice, and ultimately finds the moderation.

But there is more moderation to be found in The Village Voice post. The use of the phrase 'retreating to the sidelines and sniping' is an accurate depiction. It is shown well by the following video where Purple People Eater, Jim Marshall demonstrates the Obama agenda:

Mr. President we will not assist you while you are running the wrong way.
