I know that.

Wow. I thought they did have a 2/3 voting majority. So what was all the fuss about in '06? Did they just break 50% and want the public to think they had control? I don't get it.

I pretty much believe all of the above. It is one of my pet peeves that we blame presidents for things, when the roots of problems can usually be found in another administration. Those roots pass by unnoticed until later. It is one of the reasons I don't bash too much-I can't be sure of who is really to blame.
