Once again we see the Republicans attacking the Congress for argreeing with the Republicans. Weird.
As usual, reality is at play here. The Republicans can block anything with either a filibuster in the Senate or by a veto from the White House, something the public is well aware of, so why waste time on unwinnable fights. Better yet to give them more rope to hang themselves with.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
