Blockade stance harms Republicans

Now that the American people have made their decision the Republicans must also make a choice, the left-liberal daily Der Standard writes. Either they continue to seek confrontation or they try to build bridges: "After Obama's renewed victory the Republicans are now facing a crucial decision: either they continue with their blocking tactics or they adopt a sensible political style. In four years Obama will step down from the political stage, after which the Republicans can no longer use him as their bogeyman. The next phase of the healthcare reform will soon take effect, all the excitement will die down, and if the predictions are right the economic situation will also improve. If the far-right component of the Republican Party continues to set the tone and the content, the chances of it winning a victory in 2016 are minimal."
