The GOP investigates real crimes? Never.

Rep. Bill Keating (D-MA), quoted by the Martha’s Vineyard Times, on the divided House Republican caucus under John “I’m Lazy” Boehner.
The real story is the GOP is imploding. They are dragging down our country.
THINGS TO REGULATE…according to the GOP
“So I believe that there is actually a way forward for us, and I hope that Senator Reid, the Majority Leader, who controls the agenda on the Senate floor, will not choose to quit in our effort to try to find solutions, indeed something we need to pursue, instead of just symbolic gestures which would have had no impact on these mass gun tragedies.”
— Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) speaking on the Senate floor Thursday after he and 45 of his colleagues blocked an amendment that would have extended background checks for gun sales, a measure which 90 percent of the public supports.
It takes a lot of gall to be that arrogant, but that’s the Republican way.
…and proving Ted Cruz is dumber than a doorknob
GOP foreign policy is the ‘W’orst.
A new Gallup poll finds that public support for new federal spending to create jobs is, as Greg Sargent puts it, “simply overwhelming.”
Key findings: 72% support federal spending “to put people to work on urgent infrastructure repairs” and 72% support a “federal jobs creation law that would spend government money for a program designed to create more than 1 million new jobs.”
The mean-spirited GOP/Tea Party could care less what the People want. More clear evidence that Grover Norquist and all the other Ayn Rand reactionary zealots are really out of touch with the majority of Americans.
The only commentator with a brain at Fox News weighs in on the GOP autopsy:
Conservatives lost the presidential 2012 election. Badly. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying or heavily medicated. And Republicans didn’t just lose because President Obama’s campaign had better computer servers or “promised free stuff” to voters. No, the reasons for Republican loss — in the face of what arguably should have been an easy victory, if ever — are much deeper.
