Right-wing conservative extremism has been a thorn in the side of America. Starting from growing government...invading into people's private lives with DOMA to the Patriot Act. Now the right-wing conservatives have hijacked the GOP and made them uncompromising. Once we fire these GOP RINO TEA baggers, Congress can get back to getting work done.

With the teabaggers approval numbers, not even in the teens.

They still don't care.

Disconnected from the rest of us?

More like reality.

Poor teabaggers.

Professional politicians are the problem. I believe that the founding father envisioned citizen legislators nor professionals milking the system. Today politicians of both parties serve their corporate masters well to the detriment of the country.

While its sadly fun to watch the Frightwing pretend, pretending should have stopped in middle school. Pretending isn't getting us anywhere.

That's just what the congressional Republicans are doing...
......nothing.

But hey, they did come up with a bill in the Republican
controlled House to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act
....for the 37th time. LOL

They're all like Michelle Bachmann, totally unproductive
parasitic leaches sucking up salary and benefits and working
on legislation that they know can't get anywhere.

I think they are waiting for the time when then can get
control of both the Senate and House and really fu*k the
country.

He could have done that for a solid week and his approval ratings would still be 3 times higher than the teabagger congress.

You do understand the concept of a hung jury or a "deadlock"? What you libs mean by "doing something" is just passing more give-away programs. It's better to "do nothing" (that is, save money) than to keep spending like there's no tomorrow. What you really are is a bunch of drunken sailors complaining that the sober sailors don't want to keep partying with the public's tax dollars.

We are $17 trillion in debt. When you're in a deep, deep hole, the FIRST thing any sane person does is STOP DIGGING! That you cannot understand this rather simple point is quite revealing.

Last 30 years, since Reagan and Limbaugh began to stink up the American political scene, we've had this increasing acrimony, hatred, ideological pig-ignorance, and hysteria - mostly from the Right.

Politicians used to put aside the s--t and do what was necessary. Since Teabaggerism, it's all gone to hell.

Politics suck, and Rightie politics sucks most of all.

Democrappers want open Borders just so they can get extra votes, they don't care one iota about the Mexican's. They don't even care how many Muslims come over and do harm.

Agreed...how many of them actually worked for a living before selling their souls for free lunches and their pocket stuffing frenzies?
