It’s safe to say that no other president in history has faced such a relentless barrage of blind attacks and vitriol from the opposition like President Obama has. The man can’t pick his nose without the GOP calling for impeachment.
Call it “Obama Derangement Syndrome” or “Baracknaphobia,” but Obama never stood a chance from day one. Sen. Mitch McConnell made the Republican mission very clear when he said that their number one priority was to make sure Obama was a “one-term president.” Somehow and someway, President Obama was able to overcome and secure a second term. Amazingly, the GOP still continues to obstruct the guy.
Senator Al Franken (D-MN) has quietly been taking names and getting stuff done in the Senate. Yes, the comedian is the only serious one. So he would be the first to recognize petty obstructionism. That said, Senator Franken recently unleashed on the GOP, calling out the absurdity of their position(s) on the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court.
