    Let’s just say it: The Republicans are the problem. - The Washington Post

    Today's GOP: Worst Political Party Since the Civil War | | AlterNet

    Frankly, I'm surprised that more conservative Republicans on this board aren't wondering what the hell happened to their party.

    And since the country isn't split on geographical lines, I don't see how we would have another civil war, but it certainly looks like we are due.

    And now Boehner and crew are ready for another debt ceiling debacle. This is going to be fun.

    For far too long the GOP caved on the threats of the Dems. We finally have some ready to stand and demand they give some too. Compromise isn't about one side making all the concessions. I hope they stand their ground.

    I feel like I'm going for a roller coaster ride I don't want to take. :(

    Both the Democratic and Republican political parties have gone to hell in a hand basket. Used to be politicians wanted want was best for the country regardless of political party. Now, they want want's best for their political party and their own self-serving political agendas.

    And I dare to dream that everybody actually read the article, instead of the usual kneejerk reactions. ;)
