The time of no-governing is over.
I guess your time of "no-governing" doesn't apply to a President who has been in office for the last four years, and produced a budget that even his own party laughed at?
When you say "obstructionism," do you even know what you are talking about? Do you understand how Sen Reid is running the Senate, and why Republicans have been using filibusters?
If you flat out REFUSE to work with the opposing party on amendments, what do you think they should do? Just tell their constituents not to worry about "checks and balances" because they have a clear conscience? Roll over and be a good dog for the democratic party? They will use the only tool left to them, and more power to them as far as I'm concerned. Even more laughable; the very rules that both parties have agreed to are now about to be changed by Sen Reid so he can ignore those who disagree with him. I can't wait for the job when I can make up my own rules as I go!
I cringe to think the end result of one party in complete control of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Presidency. I sleep easier knowing that certain individuals will be forced to "negotiate" rather than force-feed their agenda down the throats of America. That is unless the President decides to circumvent Congress altogether (again) and issue another litany of Executive Orders or appoint Federal Agencies outside the purview of Congress.
