Which One Is It

Mr. Obama has been complaining recently about the lack of action in Congress.  Specifically....

Look, something you got to understand -- for those who don't believe in government, those who don't believe that we have obligations to each other, it's a lot easier task. If you can gum up the works, if you make things broken, if the Senate doesn't get anything done, well, that's consistent with their philosophy. It's a whole lot easier to say no to everything. It's a whole lot easier to blame somebody else. That politics that feeds on peoples' insecurities, especially during tough political times -- that's the easiest kind of politics. There's a long, storied history of that kind of politics.

If I might briefly demure, it isn't that we don't believe in government.  Quite the opposite.  We believe in a Constitutionally limited government that is dedicated to the preservation of individual liberty.  The sort of government that he [and our many Congresscritters] swore an oath to support and defend.

Of course, such complaints of obstruction are highly selective as Mr. Obama has recently complimented the current Congress as being one of the most productive in recent history.  Apparently the will of the people is being done by Congress....and that includes stopping massive legislative monstrosities that would significantly re-order our economy and our lives.
