    Much better idea than that idiotic fence. Let’s just hope we don’t buy any more steel from China to continue that project!

    “Next step presidential decree after all somebody needs to do something.”

    That is one of the more dangerous beliefs (probably the most) I have ever seen posted in GC forums.

    Hey, I am all for somebody in Washington doing something. We are paying them but getting nothing but grief in return. The House of Representatives is an outright joke. I may never vote Republican again.

    I’m assuming he’s talking about Harry Reid & the other libertards in the Senate that refuse to even debate any bill that the House passes or to even compromise with the Republicans. That way they can keep their narrative of the “obstructionist Republicans” and “the party of no” for the simple minded.

    So if the house was burning and the committee of NO wouldn’t approve calling the fire department, much less picking up the fire extinguisher, you would rather the head-of-household do nothing instead of doing something even without the family’s approval?
    .
    That is one of the more dangerous things I have seen claimed here or anywhere. When something MUST be done and those responsible refuse to do it and someone with questionable authority steps in a does it, you are claiming that it was wrong to do something instead of doing nothing and letting the (insert entity/organization/economy/etc. here) falter and fail?
    .
    I am not defending the President, but if the republicans in CONgress had their way this country would destroy itself from the inside out before they would do ANYTHING that might benefit the people and therefore be considered a “win” for this President. It is truly despicable how treasonous the republicans are being all due to their irrational hatred of this President. IT is time to GROW UP, and DO THEIR JOBS! It is time they work * and *SERVE ALL the people of this country.

    And when was the last time you voted Republican?

    Name-calling never impresses intelligent and worthwhile people. Some posters might want to remember this.

    “So if the house was burning and the committee of NO wouldn’t approve calling the fire department, much less picking up the fire extinguisher,..”

    Extinguishing a fire=rule by decree (dictatorship)? That is one of the more inane analogies I’ve seen in these forums.
    As for the rest of your post as concerns government and governing, the blatant partisanship precludes finding a starting point to open rational discussion.

    Your assumptions of Harry Reid’s intransigence may be true in some instances. However, the particular issue that this ’toon addresses is immigration reform. The Senate (where Mr. Reid claims to work) has passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill, and did so several months ago. It is not Mr. Reid who is delaying immigration legislation.

    Let’s admit it. You both were exaggerating the situation. Obama does not “rule by decree”, and Harry Reid has upon occasion held up bills inappropriately (although I would agree that many of the House bills have a poison pill in them, so the House shares a large portion of the blame for inaction). We really do not any of us benefit from a government shut-down, whether announced (as the Cruz event) or not (as the present gridlock). Either the concept of compromise comes into play or we’re all toast.

    Boehner is refusing to bring bills to a vote which have enough votes to pass. Contrast with the Senate, where Reid is refusing to truckle with grandstanding symbolic moves that have no chance.

    No matter which side “wins” the White House, or controls the House and Senate, the concept of compromise is not a part of the Republican Election Handbook. The Repubs have only one agenda: protect and advance the interests of the super-wealthy.
    On this one point, all Republicans are in agreement.

    I don’t like the obstructionists either but don’t care for this kind of humor. You can do better.

    I thought Barry already said multiple times that “The border is now secure”?
    Seriously, with that extra 2 BILLION Dollars 0 is asking for, I’m sure we could build a secure fence along our border like most other countries have.
    But 0 and the Dems really don’t want to stop the flow of voters. Oops, I mean poor, uneducated illegal aliens.
