"...the Republican that dragged him kicking and screaming to table are forgotten." The Republicans themselves helped create the narrative that Clinton was the sole creator of the 1990s when they determined to destroy Gingrich and return to profligate spending. To further bury the truth and continue the Clinton narrative, both Romney and Santorum claimed during primary debates that Gingrich was forced out of the House in disgrace. The GOP accepted the liberal story line that the Gingrich-lead government shutdowns were wholly the fault of the Republicans and that no good came from them.

" His latest move did nothing more than get a raft of Obama's nominees appointed." Really? Reid would not otherwise have used his last days in office to confirm Obama nominations?

Why not screw the base? With rare exceptions, voters have shown Boehner that they will not withhold votes.
