The Congressional and Senate Republicans will change. They no longer will have this number one priority: "making sure president Obama’s a one-term president.'"

The Republicans only said the one term thing AFTER Obama went around them and forced Obama Care on them and even then they said they would work with him if he were willing to work with them

fact check it

Fact is it has been Obama from the start who has refused to compromise

That is so obviously wrong it isn't funny.  I can only assume that you get your "facts" from Fox News.

The facts, as the GOP reported them: Republicans privately plot John Boehner-run House (9/9/10)

The plans presently under discussion include defunding some parts of the new health care law and delaying implementation of others, withholding some of the unspent stimulus funds and using the oversight power of Republican-led committees to investigate the Obama administration.

“The goal, obviously, would be to make it a one-term presidency,” said a GOP lobbyist briefed on the talks.

The GOP were unable to prevent Obama introducing a watered-down health care extension bill (that was a far cry from the most sensible single-payer option) because they were completely destroyed following the reign of "W" the Decider.  As soon as they got a sniff of any power back they immediately plot how to misuse it.

Obama, on the other hand, leans centre-right on most issues and was heavily influenced by Blue Dog Democrats (which are essentially pre-lunatic takeover Republicans in political view).  The compromises have all started heavily in favour of the GOP but teh GOP has still refused to pass legislation -- thus your dysfunctional government and "do nothing" Congress.

BTW, following the beating the GOP got in the Senate, McConnell appears more conciliatory.  Hopefully a sign that the GOP will now allow your government to function.
