southbeach1500 saidSo why haven't the Democrats, who have controlled Congress and the presidency for almost 2 years, done anything?
Write them and ask.
The answer is known; this is a typical right-wing deception from you-know-who.
Marriage is a State-by-State issue, not a Federal one. At least not until Republicans inserted it improperly into Federal law with DOMA. Which Clinton, to his great discredit but trying to overcome Republican opposition in Congress to other legislative issues he was pushing, caved and signed it.
In the present Congress, we have seen historically unprecedented Republican opposition to anything the Democrats, and especially President Obama, propose. Even with 58 US Democratic Senators the Senate is mostly deadlocked due to Republican opposition.
(The 2 Independents who briefly made 60 votes are unreliable, and now that Democratic number has dropped to 57, total of 59. Isn't it marvelous how Republican supporters here who cheered the election of Scott Brown to the Senate from Mass in February, still claim Obama has had a super-majority in Congress during his entire first term. They've been saying "2 years" for almost a year now, though Obama hasn't even reached his second anniversary. And given that Senator Al Franken didn't take office until July, 2009, due to fruitless Republican appeals, this whole super-majority is a myth. It lasted barely a year, with Sen Kennedy not even in the Senate in his last months. But hey, what are facts to right-wingers?)
Democrats have done less than they wanted because Republicans intentionally sabotaged them. Their stated goal from the first was clear: make Obama and the Democrats fail, even if it hurts the country. They've done a fairly good job at it, and may see their unscrupulous policy pay off this November.
This behavior from career Republican politicians I can expect. To see RJers here being shameless and lying cheerleaders and propagandists for them, and digging the knife in even deeper, is perhaps more discouraging. Et tu Brute?
