astroz complains: “Given the opportunity, he will likely try to push for a mass amnesty and conference with the Senate’s deadly S744.”

Let’s hope so.

The status Quo always wins in DC – the political ruling elite care more about keeping their noses firmly planted in the taxpayer public trough than anything else, other than enriching themselves, their family members and cronies.

Just what is needed, a Cantor clone and another RINO soft on illegal immigration and Obama policies.

tinshistler: Soft on Obama’s policies? Cantor? Seriously? Hahahahahaha… Are you insane? What policies of Obama’s has Cantor given any support to?

I remind you that, unlike Bush, Obama was duly elected to the Presidency twice by a majority of the American people. He is not the enemy. If you think that, then you also think the Americans are the enemy. Congress has a responsibility to work with the President on at least some things. Democrats supported Bush on about 40% of his initiatives. (There is a study available to back that up.)

You won’t like reading this, but the truth is that Obama has done a very good job of steering this country through some extremely difficult times, and with no help from Republicans. He’s pulled us back from the brink of a depression and has gotten the economy back on its feet (with no help from the Republicans.) He’s gotten us out of Iraq and will soon have us out of Afghanistan (with no help from the Republicans.) He’s kept us from getting drawn into another major military conflict (much to Republican disappointment.) He took a huge, courageous step in fixing our insanely inefficient, broken healthcare system so that most Americans can now afford healthcare coverage (though Republicans are firmly against making healthcare available to all Americans, the only people in the world with such a malicious position on healthcare and their fellow countrymen and women.) And he has remained a class act despite the endlessly invective attacks on his character. I’m proud to call the man my President. I don’t see how Republican get a single vote. Really.

“America is struggling. It’s struggling with a stagnant economy, a failed healthcare law,” he said. Actually, the US (not America) are struggling with a failed political system that allows a minority of vocal fanatics to paralyze the government. The beliefs and tactics of the Tea Party are the same as those of the Taliban in the Middle East, and will have disastrous results.

Actually, the 1% are doing really well, hoarding nearly all the growth over the last 10 years.

The stock market is doing great and unemployment is improving too.

The problem America is struggling eith is income inequality.
