Meanwhile, back on planet Earth
Congressional Democrats have gotten some actual things done. I'm often puzzled by the criticism that Democrats have failed to get immigration reform, health care reform, and a plethora of other things through the Senate and signed into law. The Republicans are blocking them at every step, and Bush has threatened more vetoes in the past seven months than he has in the past six years. This is somehow the Democrat's fault? Oftentimes, I hear this criticism from the same people who pine for bipartisan consensus, as if that in and of itself were a worthy goal.
