Irresponsible Is In the Eye of the Beholder

FYI, I Googled "worst congress ever" and "worst congress history" and in 2007, news reports and bloggers were calling that congress the worst ever, too.

Now, I know the caption reads "Most Irresponsible Congress Ever" (proof?) but at least this congress actually did stuff (while complaining how Republicans were hurting this county and Obama was ruining it) and got relatively important things like health care and don't ask, don't tell settled.  They weren't like the 80th Congress from 1947-1949 which was labeled the "Do Nothing Congress" or the 2005-2007 which was also labeled the Do Nothing Congress.

There's always going to be bad congresses but if every congress just forgot about what party they were a member of and just debated the issues that are important then maybe more would actually get done.  But God forbid you actually discuss things rationally and look at both sides of the issue.
