Has the Republican Party been obstructive and divisive or is it the media?
Many conservatives blame the media, many Democrats blame the Republcians for being obstructive and divisive, Republicans try to paint themselves as the "victim". Since it can't be all three, which is it?
you've answered your own question with your question. The Republicans have manipulated the media for years. You only get one view and that is emphasised across the right wing media.
It seems pretty obvious that the Republicans and those idiots n the Tea Party would much rather put all their energy into obstructing a govt than working as one nation to get the economy back on track.
The Republicans are using what they perceive to be their best strategies for obstructing and agenda they disagree with. On balance, they are doing what their constituents elected them to do. Interestingly, they haven't been effective, the Obama administration having gotten passed a good deal of progressive legislation. However, their PR has worked, and most in both parties would say Obama has failed.
The media is just doing what it always does, which is put cheeks in seats. Like television, their entire business model is dependent on delivering it's audience to advertisers–much as we do here in our hubs.

While I am not a republic nor completly white, I am so tired of the constant assumption that Republicans are just white racist. Why do people assume this? It would be like saying Democrats are just poor black and hispanic people. See how ignorant that sounds! Why?

I've always said that I didn't think Mitt would win in SC, and now Newt is ahead in the state in several polls. The GOP has gone so far to the right that they don't want a moderate. It just boggles my mind that any reasonable person could back Newt. If you think we have gridlock in Washington now,...

PLease, only answer if you have been a traditional conservative. I am a conservative Christian and my view is that the neo-conservatives stink just as bad as the liberals. I want true, American old fashined values re-represented. How about you?
