It's a shame, regardless of party affiliation (if any), that ANY political "party" or viewpoint is painted by the others (and more often than not, validated by the MEDIA) as "Obstructionist" or "Obstructionism"...

As you point out, our Founding Fathers INTENDED for our political system to work in this way. Republicans hold the majority in the House because the voters intended it to be that way- not because of a "coin-flip" where they're just supposed to say "OK, Mr. President, whatever you want""...

When we have the national media picking and choosing, which news they want us to know about, and it's presented as an editorial- and not as fact, we have a VERY BIG problem...and it seems to be getting "progressively" worse.

But I know I'm largely preaching to the choir, here.
