Let's face it, the GOP has gotten pretty good at throwing delays and roadblocks at Obama's legislative initiatives. What's more, now that it's become clear to Republicans that there are so few consequences to their intransigence, they don't much care anymore about being thought of as the party of intransigence. The money quote following the release of the American Jobs Act came from an anonymous House Republican aide, who told Politico, “Obama is on the ropes; why do we appear ready to hand him a win?” Keep in mind that we're talking about a bill that seeks to "hand a win" to the jobless.
