Wow, Such Astonishing Power the Republicans Apparently Have

President Obama is blaming the Republicans for killing the Democrats' attempt at health care reform.

Huh. Well, here's the current scorecard:

1) The Democrats control the White House.

2) The Democrats control the House of Representatives by a wide margin.

3) The Democrats have a filibuster-proof super-majority in the Senate.

Try all they wish to pin blame on Republicans, but, if they do indeed screw this up, Democrats have no one to blame but themselves. And it's pathetic for them to pretend otherwise. Indeed, they could pass anything they want without a single Republican vote. So, what's stopping them?
