Re: "Republicans in Congress adrift, out of control" (Eugene Robinson column, 3-17).
Robinson suggests that the Democratic Party, as directed by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, looks like a model of unity and discipline when compared to the Republican Party.
It is easier to lead a herd whose common and primary goal is bigger government. When in charge, we know that those two generally did not allow legislation that did not lead to that goal to arrive at President Obama's desk. Legislators who positively contribute individually to the entrepreneurial spirit are more difficult to corral.
