republicans from his first day in office. The electorate in 2008 completely repudiated the republicans, wanted them neutralized. Obama decided to meet them 9/10 of the way, and his voters felt deceived and abandoned, and gave up on the party actually accomplishing anything.

The obstruction would have been just as bad for Hillary.
