That is a sufficient explanation which does little good.
Well...not so fast.
I think when people say “that’s impossible” it serves to shelve future action to drive change, whereas identifying that something is merely improbable allows that there does exist an actionable target for action: eGOP stonewallers, in this case. That doesn’t alter the immediate outcome of this specific policy discussion, but it provides a course of action that will impact the outcome of other similar policy discussions in the future.
So, in the near term, I agree that my pointing out the difference between impossible and improbable “does little good”; the payoff that could do massive good is down the line in the long term where our political enemies have been living for fifty years. Long term thinking and action have been the weapons of our enemies’ political warfare since the 1930’s; and they’ve been kicking the GOP’s ass.
It’s high time we take residency in that neighborhood if we want any hope of there still being a recognizable United States of America by the close of this century.
