He fails to recognize that the House of Representatives has passed over 210 bills that languish in the Senate under the leadership of Harry Reid. This is where the logjam is, and hopefully the elections in this fall will end that. He also ignores that fact that President Obama simply is not a negotiator with the congressional leaders.
