BS headline and editorial. This is a better result than we could have hoped for, given the newly-minted rightwing peaceniks in congress whose only principle is to block the president and progress for the country.

This is for all of you Foxbots:

Roger Ailes (the head of Fox News) said this a little over a year ago: "Putin is angry, he thinks the United States doesn't take him seriously or treat Russia like a major player. Okay, fine, that's how he feels. If I were President, I'd get in a room with him and say,'Look at the slaughter going on in Syria. You can stop it. Do it, and I'll see to it that you can get all the credit. I'll tell the world that it was you who saved the innocent....'"

But now Ailes's reporters are on the air saying that the US has been "castrated" by Russia.

You're not smart enough to figure out what laxative to take, let alone who our enemies are.

Progress like this?

American households are earning 4.4% less, when adjusted for inflation, than they were when the economic recovery began four years ago.

"Almost every group is worse off than it was four years ago," said Gordon Green of Sentier Research. Demographic groups such as the middle-aged, part-time workers and women with children have suffered even worse than the average.

Yeah, I know, I know...everything is the fault of the GOP. Yawn.

Well, if that's the case, you're admitting your president is impotent. Coming up on 5 years and all we have is a country that's more dependent on the government than it has EVER been. And what do you folks want? 15 million more instant immigrant democrats on the dole.
