The left: we don't need no stinkin' opposition party

From a very liberal blogger, huffing and puffing recently at the Huffington Post:

"For the party that created our crisis's of misbegotten war, mismanaged economy, the lack of regulation of our banking industry, handing our country to rich crooks... to obstruct the one person who is trying to repair the damage is obscene."

Hmmm. Well, true...but only if one assumes that Obama and the Democrats have correctly assessed the "damage" and what caused it, and only if one assumes that Obama's policies will not be damaging in and of themselves.

But I really don't think this person, or any other Democrat even mildly in touch with reality, truly expects the opposition party to merely stand aside and let Democrats do whatever, without uttering a word. Which is why stuff like this is just so much demagogic nonsense.
