So…those obstructionist R’s did it all wrong so let’s get the D’s to do the exact same thing?

Hey John,

Thanks for the response. I definitely think it hurts my credibility to say that, but I also think that’s part of the problem: we are too worried about credibility. Taking the high-road did not work for Hillary Clinton, nor did it work for Obama for 8 years when he tried to work with vindictive Republicans. It is a delusion to think congress can work together, especially now — we’ve had a historically large proportion of Republicans in Congress, and a historically low approval rating. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. So I’ll let my credibility take a hit on this one. Sometimes the wisest course of action is a good ol’ “taste of your old medicine.”
