    As the old saying goes, "Boehner is as useful as tits on a boar hog." Now that I think about it. That can be said for 434 other people in Congress.

    <Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Monday said he would offer an amendment to the Senate immigration bill to counteract a Supreme Court decision striking down state laws requiring voters to prove their citizenship.>

    It's like the Doomsdayers that keep predicting the End of the World and continuously get proven wrong.

    Look, I agree that there are many bad decisions, but when you guys keep going into "Doom and Gloom" mode it just gets old and sounds more like whining.
    C'mon, now. If you look at it objectively, you will see that both sides engage in hyperbole.

    No,it's pretty obvious. The Democrat base are a weird combo of highly educated and those of VERY low educational levels.

    I'm not so sure that those very lows vote in any big numbers anyway.

    Just speculation, of course, based on what and who I see around here.

    Wouldn't you love to see A. West run against M. Rubio in a senate primary? Since Repubs have the House until at least 2022, please continue to strangle the Country with your dysfunction.

    Gerry-mandered states currently favor RepubLies 2-1. Yes this is the Dems' lost decade due to not voting in 2010 and the FOX invention of the TEApees in 2009 along with the coordinated disruptive townhalls.
