Today's GOP is an embarrassment. Once a proud political party, it is now a splintered organization that developed and nurtured the Tea Party, a minority group of rabid anti-government zealots, and is now controlled by them. This party knowingly decided to oppose and obstruct the Obama administration at every turn regardless of the damage.
This party has nurtured political vitriol and passively accepted all sorts of hateful discourse under the guise of political discourse. They have been willing to bankrupt this country to stop its citizens from having access to affordable health care. They have no interest in governing responsibly and they couldn't care less that hundreds of thousands of public servants have been out of work.
Frankly I'm sick of the "false equivalency" meme that blames both sides. The deadlock has been solely the result of orchestrated GOP strategic planning.
