Republicans need to start doing their job

In 2008, the Republican Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, declared that the number one goal for the Republican Party would be to make sure that President Obama was a one-term president. They had one goal and that failed. America has suffered because of it.

Last Tuesday, America denied McConnell his goal and we re-elected President Obama. So now it's time for Republicans to give up the crazy nonsense and get to work doing their jobs.

I'm hoping that Republicans learn something from this and they follow Governor Chris Christie's example as a new template for Republican behaviour.

It's time for Republicans to do what's right and argue over who gets the credit, rather than do what's wrong and fight over who gets the blame.
