Re "To make our government work, Obama needs to think bigger" (Viewpoints, Feb. 24): E.J. Dionne, Jr., is correct in that the GOP's anger over Obama's use of his executive powers is without merit, and that Obama does need to better utilize his executive powers going forward.
If he doesn't, he will simply be playing into the GOP's hands by further supporting their message that the government is dysfunctional and, accordingly, should be further defunded. The GOP is already doing its part by voting no on anything presented by the Democrats.
You have to give it to them. Campaign on the government's inability to get things done, and then prove it by doing nothing.
