The US has poured money into Latin American countries. Our southern neighbors unfortunately have a heritage of corrupt government that doesn't look to be subsiding any time soon. Giving money to these corrupt regimes is like throwing money away. The only people it helps are the pols and their cronies. I find it hilarious that Mexicans look at the US southwest and try to make the idiotic claim that it should be part of Mexico. Mexico is a wreck, the US isn't quite there yet, but give the left a few more years, they are working hard to destroy America. The only reason the Mexicans want to claim the US southwest is because it has been run by Americans and is successful and prosperous...unlike Mexico.

Galen, you are as bad as the Dems, you build a strawman out of something no one has proposed to try and show that conservatives who desire border security are stupid and unreasonable. I have NEVER heard anyone, much less a conservative, propose that every inch of the US coastline and the Canadian border needed to be secured. Reasonable people understand that it is our porous southern border that needs to be secured. Regardless of Galen and Obama's love of amnesty, the correct order to proceed is border security first (southern border) followed by immigration reform once the security issues are resolved... in reality not by empty political rhetoric. The illegals have "lived in the shadows" this long, they can make it another couple of years until the border is secured.
I like your plan of driving the RINO's out to form their own party. I usually see Conservatives advocating abandoning the Republicans and starting a third party. That is the recipe for political oblivion. Let the RINO's take that path, we are right and they are wrong.
I agree. She is obviously illustrating the stupidity of the left.
Where did Astrid Silva the poor, oppressed illegal immigrant who has been living in the shadows all these years come up with the dough to pay for 3 different degrees?
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.
