I'd love to hear how the government shutdowns helped Republicans and furthered a conservative agenda. I'd also love to hear how suicidal self-destruction of the Republicans furthers anything other than the leftist agenda. Boehner isn't my favorite politician, I don't like politicians, I also don't like wild-eyed jackasses telling me to get my head out of my butt. Your plan is a sure fire recipe for political oblivion. You need to get a grip and see what transpires in the next Congress before you turn the guns onto your own team.
What exactly were the Republicans supposed to do budgetwise? The Senate has been in the hands of Harry Reid for the last 8 years. The Senate hasn't passed a budget since 2009, thus locking the asinine spending in from Obama's first year via continuing resolutions. Boehner and the House pushed well over 300 bills that have been collecting dust on Reid's desk. The problem in not Boehner or the Republicans. It's the Democrats. As Obama stated early in his term, "elections have consequences and at the end of the day I won". We are just now getting enough firepower assembled to thwart the left. We won't really be able to do much more than trickery and highlight that the Dems are bad for America for the next 2 years. Shooting your own team seems pretty unproductive to me.
I would love for someone to explain to me what the amazing social benefits of legalizing pot are. Recent studies show that pot smokers have shrunken brains, anyone who has spent time around a chronic dope smoker could have told you that though. Why are libertarians so focused on that as one of their critical freedom issues. I know the pro-pot crowd likes to tout the wonderful new tax revenue stream generated by legal marijuana. I believe that the government will never be satisfied with any amount of money. So the argument of revenue really would be another example of the government preying on the weakness of their citizens. As far as the cartoon goes...owning a firearm is a Constitutional 2nd amendment right. Smoking dope, not so much.
Heck, I agree with Gruber. Democrat voters ARE stupid.

Did Obama Take a Dive?

Hmm. Rich has had some pretty flawed analysis the last few years. I think this column tops them all. Obama wanted to lose the Senate just so he could say Republicans are bad...really? Maybe Obama said all those stupid things about the election being about him because he's a narcissist and can't stand not being the most important guy in the room. Losing both houses of Congress in no way, shape or form helps him or the Democrats.
Right. Your term is simply a modernizing of the old "live by the sword, die by the sword", and is 100% correct.
Mr. Bomberger made a great comparison between the Dred Scott decision and Roe v. Wade. I had never considered the fact that Roe essentially relegated a human life to be "property". That is exactly what it did though. Personal property can be kept or disposed of by the whim of the owner. Thus a woman's right to choose to destroy her property. What party fought to be able to keep blacks enslaved? What party fights to kill babies? Oh yeah, same party different century, same evil mentality.
How were McConnell and Boehner repudiated in the last election? I thought they won big.
I'm very happy the Democrats have decided that their best play is to keep their unholy trinity, Obama, Pelosi and Reid as their face of the party for the next 2 years.
That is a great point! What exactly will it take to get these wanna-be tyrants off our backs. Clearly their man Gruber spoke the truth on numerous occasions when he lectured like minded libs on how stupid the voters are. Obviously they are correct...at least about the stupidity of Democrat voters. Heck, they are even doubling down by putting ultra-lefty Elizabeth Warren (aka Lieawatha) into a leadership position.
