Immigration used to be a wedge issue in the Democratic Party. No longer. Now it is a wedge issue within the Republican Party and between the GOP and ordinary Americans.
Republicans have blocked almost all of the president's initiatives after the 2010 election. They wear obstructionism like a medal on their chest. Now they should pay the price for serving narrow ideological and economic interest groups -- instead of America.
Go off-road and you'll find, for one thing, one smiling, waving statue of Ronald Reagan. While not the most statesmanlike locale, Ronnie overlooks a crunched parking lot off Cathedral Street.
You have talked about creating jobs and strengthening the economy, Leader Cantor. You once highlighted the need for reform. Yet lately you have done nothing but make excuses or ignore the issue. It's lazy. It's irresponsible. It has to stop.
Why does GOP enthusiasm for the tea party senator translate into another Clinton in the Oval Office?

Choice is hard. Life is hard. But Joe Miller has abandoned complexity in lieu of irresponsible soundbites. To make such a wildly inaccurate policy statement, purposefully and solely for short-term political gain, is a reprehensible breach of ethics and is beneath even the basement level of politics we associate with the modern day campaign.
The Bergdahl drama has all the GOP's favored anti-Obama ingredients: president who supposedly disregards national security concerns, thumbs his nose at Congress, and is anti-military. The feigned outrage is not about Bergdahl; it's about Obama.

Would giving up prisoners who have undoubtedly been replaced by new recruits or promotions embolden the Taliban? It's doubtful, considering that they don't need any more motivation than the "political, religious, and social purpose" they already possessed.

Why won't SNA leaders and House Republicans stand up for our children's health instead of trying to dismantle nutrition standards that are improving their lives?
Our world needs leaders who take climate change as seriously as they would a diagnosis of cancer. It sounds dire -- because it is dire. Countries will disappear, poverty will rise, and the health of our children will suffer. We have a moral obligation to address climate change.
Earlier this year, the GOP had a chance to prove that it could fund veterans' health care as eagerly as it borrowed for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
