Obviously, anything that derails the anti-prosperity agenda of Pelosi/Reid/Obama is going to be better for the country. It is hard to say that the Republicans covered themselves with glory when they controlled the government, however. I think the article makes a valid point.

The article reiterates what I have always said. Balance our government, force debate and compromise and the country moves forward.
You don't get every American in the equation with only one side. You may never please all the people all the time, but it will please some of the people some of the time and others other times.
