Can a party of "no" actually govern?

My hypothesis: for eight years the GOP turned itself into a party whose core motivation was being an obstacle to Obama and other perceived "liberals".

They screamed about how things shouldn't be done but never really gave reasons. We all know the real reason was a huge amount of butthurt over how W left in disgrace and Obama arrived with a wave of optimism. They just never got over it and devoted themselves to hating everything he proposed.

But now they are in power. Now they have no one to oppose. No one to stop. They seem like Ronin, wandering about with no purpose. So is it a surprise that they have accomplished nothing? That they seem to still be aiming to fight Obama even as Obama is content to windsurf around the world?

So, what do you think? Can a party built around saying "nope" actually become a party that does things?
