lets not forget that the Democrats were in control for the last TWO years of Bush's term. PLUS had COMPLETE control of Congress AND the Presidency for enough time to do what they wanted.
Also, a DO NOTHING CONGRESS IS A GOOD THING! IT means ONLY the best legislation that BOTH sides completely agree on will get thru Congress. Otherwise you have something like Obamacare get crammed down your throat! Its NEVER GOOD when one side can run the table in both the Senate and House. Its best to have sides and odds and NOTHING get passed unless it fits the smell test!
