It's got nothing to do with Obama and everything to do with Washington DC in the last 15 years. Increasingly the parties wont' work with each other. The Republican moderate doesn't really exist anymore in Congress. The Tea Party, NRA and Grover Norquist and the religious right have squeezed them all out. Work with the Democrats and we'll toss you out on your ass is the message.
I'm afraid we'll never see a remotely functional Washignton DC ever again. Now it's "no loaf is better than half a loaf".
