I certainly hope John Boehner, Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor stand up on their hind legs and fight Obama and Reid. when the sequester date arrives, I would leave Obama twisting in the wind!

When the money was being borrowed, who said no? We have yet to see if there are any statesmen who are not maleable !

But I also remember back to the early '90s that Clinton won the public debate, Newt & Republicans lost in the polls (thanks to Lamestream media, etc.). So, fight the good fight. But don't expect to win much. The media has already got the majority believing that Republicans are obstructionists. Maybe, let them just vote for what they want and abstain. Vote present, as Dear Liar, Obummer, Ovimit does.

There was Bob Dole,...
