I've said before I think the GOP prefers being the minority party. It's always easier.

Obstruction is their forte

Pfft. Both parties do that when in the minority.

No, it isn't. You are either being deliberately provocative, or blind.

One example:

The Dems refused, delayed and obstructed hearings on numerous federal judges during George W. Bush's term, then cried foul when the GOP returned the favor under Obama.

Of course, the Dems were probably returning an earlier favor during the Clinton administration.

And on and on and on...

They do.

Why?

1. They want Dems stuck handling the Mueller report and all the bombs that will drop around it. No Pub wants to be seen standing against Trump.
2. If the Dems control Congress, the Pubs can cast votes to support Trump knowing they won't matter.
3. The leadership freakin' hates Trump and many/most would like to seem him burn. Trump will literally deliver himself to the coookout.
4. They will get their court packing done by then. They got what they wanted. Now they need to start creating distance between the party and Trump. When he starts to go down, like a drowning man he will try to pull the party down with him. The leadership is already positioning themselves to survive the cataclysm to come.


Kudos Vypr.  That's a plausible theory.

lol Tom Daschel literally had the nickname "Dr. No."   But you go with your bad self.

Seriously.  It's a phenomenon I've noticed over and over and over again in the past few years.

I think there's a lot of people who think politics was invented in 2008.
