It’s an election year. A lot of Democrats don’t know how it would play in their party, and Republicans don’t want to change anything. We like the path we’re on now. We [Republicans] can denounce it if it goes bad, and praise it if it goes well and then ask what took him so long.

Jack Kingston (R-GA) accidentally tells the truth publicly and reveals why the GOP is in no particular rush to vote for or against military strikes on ISIS: taking every possible opportunity to deride President Obama, engaging in unprecedented obstructionism, and playing politics is far more important to Republicans than actually doing their jobs as U.S. congressmen and women

But this should come as no surprise to anyone who remembers the Republican meeting held at the Caucus Room—on the day of PBO’s 2008 inauguration—where Paul Ryan and other prominent Republicans met and pledged an oath to obstruct absolutely any and ALL forthcoming legislation from the Obama administration

Even if we could turn back, we’d probably never end up where we started.

She tried to rid the broken parts of herself. But then she was not whole.
