Is it too early to call the new GOP Congress a failure?
As JFK said - 100 days
Kennedy was speaking of a Congress with their own president in the white house.
Much more difficult to accomplish anything meaningful with an obstructionist president from the opposing party that has promised to veto almost everything that comes to his desk.
Gas is going up around here. I think it is about $2.25.
I think that the GOP is a failure because they seem to have sold out to the US Chamber of Commerce and American aristocrats who want cheap labor and easy votes for the Democrats.
Look for the GOP to go along with the Democrats and let Iran get the atomic bomb. Biden has sent word that he will not attend any speech by Netanyahu. The Democrats have chosen sides on this issue--what is amazing is that Jews still support Democrats 100%.
No. They haven't met or exceeded expectations since 1995. Why should this be any different?
CTB is just bitter. :laugh:
They've been in office less than a month. Did you expect the nation to completely turn around in that short a time? Sounds like unrealistic expectations on your part.
To call out the GOP for less than a month's work is jumping the gun a bit. I wasn't around the BB back then, but did you ever get on the case of Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats who didn't pass a budget since April of 2009? I mean, Reid even said it would be foolish for Democrats to even offer a budget plan. Did you slam them for their 5 years of inactivity?
CTB never slams democrats. Won't even hit 'em on abortion.
He's always straight party line with worn out talking points.
That ought to catch you up.
They trounced the Dems in the November elections. Then Boehner decides to reach compromises with the outgoing Dems on spending issues and others issues instead of passing a continuing resolution for 45 days of funding and waiting to take these things up with the new majority. He basically gave the Dems 2015 as a going away present.
So why should conservatives be optimistic that the GOP will champion their issues going forward when they caved in to a lame duck Congress?
100% correct. You are a smart guy.
Indications are this Congress will be a disappointment largely due to lack of guts for taking on a lawless president. What little they might accomplish will vetoed.
But it's still too early to say it's a failure. 30 days ain't much time in congress.
Let's just hope that there are a few new "Trey Gowdys" in the new crop of freshmen.
If so, perhaps one or more of them are just sizing up the enemy before they attack!! :thumbs::smilewinkgrin::thumbsup:
