I just have this one simple question (although I realize is it not a simple question).
People (on the left and the right) are saying that Obama should have been able to find a way to work with Congress in spite of their VOWED DETERMINATION to block him at every turn. First, the Republicans in Congress were committed to making sure he was a one-term president, and when that didn’t work, they promised to block everything he proposed. Which they did. He still got a remarkable amount of his agenda done.
But after last night’s speech, people are saying “he should have found a way to work with them.” I’d like to know what way. Not a rhetorical question. Was there something he should have done, some strategy he should have followed?
