Republicans Leaving Their Party
I hear constantly how Liberals specifically President Obama is the worst President ever from Conservative perspective at HT. Liberal arguments has been. How do you rate a President as doing a poor job when the success of our country lies in the hands of a Congress that would prefer to give the impression that the President cannot do the job.
He is not a Emperor, King or Dictator. We have a President and a political process of a Congress and Senate to pass bills for the President to sign. If they do not do their job nothing happens.
The President can set policies but if they are not written by the Congress and passed by the Senate. What do you think should happen?
Will you believe Representatives from your party that explain where the problem is really happening.
They are walking away from their own party and telling you where the problem hits. Do you believe other Conservatives? Are they wrong?

Syracuse -- U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna took his own party to task today, saying the Republican Party is too willing to accommodate its most extreme members.
"I have to say that I'm frustrated by how much we I mean the Republican Party are willing to give deferential treatment to our extremes in this moment in history," he told The Post-Standard editorial board.
If all people do is go down there and join a team, and the team is invested in winning and you have something that looks very similar to the shirts and the skins, there's not a lot of value there," Hanna said. Democrats in Congress, he continued, are "much more congenial" and show "a little less anger."
