2:23 am
the window and replaced by everything must be a fight. >> this is going back to the days of jefferson and adams. they were on separate sides of a lot of issues. hamilton or madison. so i think there's a lot of history in this country of disagreement, but we do need to be more productive. here in washington d.c., there's no question about it. there's a health care law. last time i checked it was the executive branch that was carrying out or executing laws, not the legislative branch. elections happen on all sides, right? in the house there was an election. republicans won. in the senate there was an election and an election for the president. there's constituents on all sides of the political spectrum who want those that are elected to seek their voice. it's a situation where democrats are elected across the board in every branch of government and all democratic policy issues put in place. >> they're not getting a lot done. let me ask you this. what is the republican's real agenda other than obstructing president obama's agenda.
2:24 am
