“It is almost impossible to believe that Sen. Patrick Leahy is so naïve as to make a statement like that. Where has he been for the last five years? The best take on this statement I can come up with is that he is trying to shame the Republican'ts into doing their jobs and seeing that the courts are staffed with judges. The righties put me in mind of the fable of the frog and the scorpion. They do it because it is their nature and because they can. The Party of NO must GO.”
“To get to the Real problem you must take a hard and jaundiced look at the way our political campaigns are financed. It makes no sense whatsoever to allow industrial giants to finance the elections of the people who are responsible to the people for running the government. Corporate interests Will prevail.”
“The boat metaphor works fine for this. You don't drain a sinking boat by poking holes in the bottom. Republican'ts are using pick axes to drain the country. They want a new republic, run by corporations and financed by the populace.”

“not quite sure where you are getting the GOP wants that....they dont want a "new" republic...they have claimed to want to fundamentially transform the country....someone in the WH has...but not hte GOP.
They GOP wants, what are country has had, a nation run by laws, people trading withone another in the market place.”
“Really they had nothing else they were able to do without helping fix our problems and that would make the Democrats look good so ......”

“That's the real problem; they haven't concentrated on anything but making things hard for Obama in hopes of reclaiming the White House after their man Bush destroyed their brand. Problem is, they're doing it on the backs of Americans and it's getting really old.”
“, before Republicans turned universally against the idea.
I seriously doubt that Republican'ts were against the Idea of universal Romney care. They were against Obama. Pure and simple.”

“Agreed. The chickens are finally coming home to roost as we knew they would have to sooner or later. We'll see more of his type of hypocritical flip-flopping in the years to come on the ACA. This was and continues to be all about the black guy in the white house. The moderate conservatives are so afraid of being primaried by the Tparty crowd that they will go against what they know is right. Spineless jellyfish.”
“I think the operative word here is Little. Ever since I graduated from high school I was more attracted to women with a bit of substance. I don't mean to say that many of the models are not attractive to me but let's face it, so what.”
“No, you don't even get what you thought you were voting for, you get what the 1% has chosen for you no matter what party you support. Thank the powers that be there are still a few out there that let us know how it could and should be. This dweeb is clueless.”
“So now when a woman stands for something and speaks her mind she is following a trail laid out by a corporate insider. I would like to Remind those in the senator's thrall that there have been many strong women in our history and her contribution is small compared with many of them. I won't argue that on many things she has done a good job but her Wall Street and corporate connections cannot be ignored. I sincerely doubt that she will do anything more for the strength of the middle class, repairing our infrastructure and manufacturing base than Obama has.”
