The Party of Torture

Is the Republican party, the party of obstructionist politics? Hilzoy:

I am not, in general, a big fan of saying: Republicans: you lost. Get over it. But in this case, I'm going to make an exception. The Republicans do not seem to be willing to allow the President to do things that are plainly his prerogative: appointing the reasonable, qualified, law-abiding people of his choice, deciding which documents should be declassified, and so forth. Any moment now they'll threaten not to pass the budget unless he sets his air conditioner at their preferred temperature.

Why the Republicans which to continue to gloss over the war crimes of the Bush administration is beyond me.
