Barney Frank sums it up

Tonight at the convention, Frank told CNN:
[L]ook at the contrast. George Bush came to us on the Democratic side in late '08 and said, we're in a crisis, we need your help -- and we gave it to him, very openly, very fully. Then Obama comes in to try to deal with the terrible situation he inherited from bush and the republican media went into full partisan attack. [Senate Republican Leader] Mitch McConnell announcing his number one goal was to defeat the president
I continue to hold out hope that voters will punish Republicans for their intransigence.

I agree with your hope but question the wisdom in it. We've seen the ongoing double standard from the GOP for years, if not decades. Any hope that we have two responsible governing parties in this country seems at best misguided.
