Whadayamean, "How long...?" I've been saying it since the Carter administration, and it's been true since the Teddy Roosevelt Progressive bandwagon got jumped on. Karl Marx instigated it, and Barry Hussein (Obama,Jr.-Soetoro) may end it, making us a totalitarian Marxist state. Yet, no one in the congress is willing, or perhaps they, too, have been threatened by Barry Soetoro (http://www.wnd.com/2012/04/hillary-supporters-untold-obama-horror-stories/), to do anything to stop him remove him from office, or even pass legislation preventing his illicit action in Libya. Boehner is either complicit, or has ulterior motives.The other presumption is that he is merely a useful idiot. It may be so.
