Rep. Allen West,a Florida Republican,was recently captured on video asserting that there are “78 to 81” Democrats in Congress who are members of the Communist Party. Of course,it’s not unusual for some renegade lawmaker from either side of the aisle to say something outrageous. What made West’s comment —right out of the McCarthyite playbook of the 1950s —so striking was the almost complete lack of condemnation from Republican congressional leaders or other major party figures,including the remaining presidential candidates.

It’s not that the GOP leadership agrees with West;it is that such extreme remarks and views are now taken for granted.

We have been studying Washington politics and Congress for more than 40 years,and never have we seen them this dysfunctional. In our past writings,we have criticized both parties when we believed it was warranted. Today,however,we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme;scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science;and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

When one party moves this far from the mainstream,it makes it nearly impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the country’s challenges.

“Both sides do it” or “There is plenty of blame to go around” are the traditional refuges for an American news media intent on proving its lack of bias,while political scientists prefer generality and neutrality when discussing partisan polarization. Many self-styled bipartisan groups,in their search for common ground,propose solutions that move both sides to the center,a strategy that is simply untenable when one side is so far out of reach.

It is clear that the center of gravity in the Republican Party has shifted sharply to the right. Its once-legendary moderate and center-right legislators in the House and the Senate —think Bob Michel,Mickey Edwards,John Danforth,Chuck Hagel —are virtually extinct.

The post-McGovern Democratic Party,by contrast,while losing the bulk of its conservative Dixiecrat contingent in the decades after the civil rights revolution,has retained a more diverse base. Since the Clinton presidency,it has hewed to the center-left on issues from welfare reform to fiscal policy. While the Democrats may have moved from their 40-yard line to their 25,the Republicans have gone from their 40 to somewhere behind their goal post

Instead we have an idiot that can't put one sentence together.And he lost by almost 3million votes.
This guy is so jealous of Obama that 9months into his first term all he can talk about is Obama.
Just because Obama was articulate, smart a good father and husband he hates him. Actually he holds a grudge when Obama dissed him at a journalists party.
So stupid,so shallow,and he wants to screw his own daughter. Fake President,Fake human being.

Donald Trump and his supporters are continually complaining that too much time is spent on the "Russia" issue. Donald Trump made certain yesterday that people would still be talking about Russian meddling.

He goes into a meeting and he refuses to take his National Security Advisor with him. Evidently, he does not trust McMaster or he is so paranoid about leaks that he is frozen in incompetence? The only person that he seems to trust is Rex Tillerson, the one Cabinet member that has won the highest civilian award from the Russian government. It does not instill a lot of trust in this President.

They talked for almost 2 and a half hours. We have no idea what they talked about? We can only take their word for it and they have not proven themselves trustworthy in the past. Predictably, both sides came out of the long meeting with different stories. Tillerson says one thing and the Russian Foreign Minister says the exact opposite? What are the people to believe?

The lies and the lack of transparency from this Administration knows no bounds. They simply cannot be honest and straight with the people and they continue to hide behind closed doors, casting more and more suspicions upon their actions in the Russian meddling case. Nothing is going to improve until the people have the truth. Trump and his supporters can whine all they want.
