GOP At War Against President Obama

Can anyone doubt that the GOP has declared war against President Obama. The Republicans in Congress have dug in against anything the new President has tried to do in the early weeks of the new administration.
But on Monday, Feb. 9th, one of their number, Pete Sessions, R 5th district, Tx., made it more than clear when he made these despicable remarks.
"Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban. And that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person's entire processes. I'm not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. ... I'm saying an example of how you go about [it] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with."

Huh? Now that's clear as mud. Inspired by the Taliban? What a lofty ideal to aspire to emulate.
The sudden withdrawl by Senator Jud Gregg (R NH) as the nominee to head the Department of Commerce was no doubt in response to pressure from Congressional Repblican leadership.
With Republicans voting as a block in both houses of Congress in opposition they have demonstrated they have no desire to operate in any kind of bi-partisan manner.
