Summary: Hey, nothing's our fault now because we're completely out of power! We can't do anything! Isn't this AWESOME?!
Actually, upon reflection, he may have a point, just not the one he thinks he's making. The modern Republican party has proven that they're an absolute disaster when actually called on to DO anything. They're in their true element when out of power, because then they can stomp their little feet and throw teabaggy tantrums over stuff they've heard the Democrats are doing, or have a "secret plan" to do, and we know it's true because the voices in Rush Limbaugh's Oxycontin-addled head say so.
And isn't it great that the Republicans, the party of the "unitary executive" theory (not to mention the party of "sit down and shut up" for eight years), have suddenly become fans of checks and balances? It'd be even nicer if they meant it.
