    By virtually any measure, the 113th Congress is the worst Congress in the history of the United States (and you thought that the 112th was bad!). Their level of incompetence is reflected by the Congressional approval rating, which currently is at 10%.

    If baffles me why the conservative elements think that Obama should continue to try to work with Congress, in spite of the obstructionism in the House and the 400+ filibusters by Mitch McConnell in the Senate.

    The latest example of the conservative mindset came to me this afternoon, via a conservative newsletter that I continue to receive just for jollies:

    To paraphrase Robin Williams a bit (from Good Morning, Vietnam) "it staggers the imagination".
