Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Tears Of A Clown

Marshall is right.  The inability of the GOP to pass their own legislation is embarrassing.

Cantor and Boehner are blaming Pelolsi for not providing votes.  But the Farm Bill was anathema to the Democrats because of the draconian cuts to SNAP and other food assistance programs.

As Booman sez why would Democrats vote for a bill that guts food assistance and imposes drug testing on recipients.  The Republicans got 24 Democrats to vote for this piece of crap bill.

Boehner continues to solidify his place as the least competent Speaker in history.  What this means for the Immigration Bill is anyone's guess.

But the idea that Boehner can deliver anything with Republican votes, besides a ban on lesbian abortion Obamacare repeals is laughable.
