Questions for the New Year

1. The Republican House of Representatives are not "obstructionists." Here is a link to their votes in the second half of December 2011. They've gotten more done in two weeks than President Obama has accomplished in three years. Why can't they communicate that effectively to the voting public?

2. Can you cash a check without identification? Neither can I. Requiring ID for voting, which is the most important act in a free society, should be a no-brainer. "Brain" being the operative word. Why is this hard?

3. President Obama has golfed for the equivalent of three months since taking office in January 2009. Yet he says Americans have gotten "soft and lazy." What's wrong with this picture?

Happy New Year. Can I vote now?
