The obstructionism the GOP has engaged in for the better part of 7 years can't be attributed to a simple difference of opinion. In fact, we know that making sure America failed under President Obama was part of a larger strategy that was decided on the night of President Obama's first inauguration.
This is troubling because hoping and working to insure that an American president fails, one would think, is both un-American and a slap in the face to democracy.
Of course, there's also the racial element. But most of you already get that.
And, yes, all of this is driving the GOP's decision to stonewall President Obama's nominee to replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court.
