Let's just tally this up a second. House and Senate and Presidency are all Democrat controlled. They do NOT need Republicans for anything, as long as they can keep their own in lock step. Again and again we hear how the Republicans input is reduced to meaningless. You would think CPAC would be a one minute footnote in the news, given the irrelevance.
But no, this has now become the focus more rather outlandish spin and attacks. You would think that the Republicans are back in charge... I find that interesting.
