Divided Government

Now that the Republicans have gained control of the House of Representatives, will they be able to work with the Democratic Senate and President? I am not encouraged. Republican Senator Mitch McConnell (KY) said "[T]hat his top priority in the next Congress is to ensure that President Barack Obama serves only one term." How can you have government that works for the people when your primary goal is to drive out the President? That's because there will be no compromise from this new congress. I'm not trying to be partisan about this. But folks the Republican Party has stripped all the moderates from the party. Former President Gerry Ford would not be welcome in this Tea Party dominated party. The right-wing would not compromise with any moderates or liberals. Stand by for divided government.
