…that root being Republicans strength and democratic fear.
Because republicans didn’t take the advice of the “no labels” crowd and fought for what they believed in and won a huge election this November past.
Additionally Democrats knowing their agenda was unpopular were afraid to try to pass parts of it before the election fearing that the results would be even worse than they were.
Add to that the fact that democrats KNEW that they had only the lame duck session to try to get their stuff passed and needed some republican help forced compromises.
None of this is possible without the tea party and the work of the American People.
Will president Obama work with republicans next year? We will see.
