“The contortions of his logic are truly a sight to behold.”

“It is your own logic that is flawed to the point of non-existence. If one legislative house passes hundreds of laws aimed at improving the economy and the other legislative branch won't even allow a vote on them, who is really blocking progress? We start with a vote. Let the members of the senate say where they stand and then let both parties negotiate based on the support present in both the house and the senate. Reed blocks this process though because he knows Democrats would vote for many of the bills the house has pushed to them and then the Prez would face a choice about how to use his veto power. Reed is protecting Obama likely at the his request and in doing so is the block to progress. I know it is hard to admit that your party is causing the problem but surely you must admit there have been zero efforts on the part of the senate or the white house to negotiate. A leader leads, if Obama was a leader it would not matter that the house is not in his pocket. Other presidents have faced this exact issue and yet things still got done. Is he willing to lead or not?”
“This was a do-nothing Congress not because of ineptitude, but because of willful malice/ideology. That's what is shameful about these people.”

“When Obama is driving the bus of State over the cliff, the most responsible people are one ones with their foot on the brakes.
Ted Cruz was the only one in Washington with Obama's back on the budget battle, but his ego would not let him see that. His popularity and power are both tanking because of the obvious problems with Obamacare and Ted stood alone to give him time to fix it. The failure that is Obamacare will be his defining presidential legacy of abject failure now.”
