    have no desire to govern; they just want to sabotage.

      I believe they have lost all interest in "governing" and are seeking alternate conduits for "power" - one of which is to sabotage others' governing power.

      Other "power" areas taken up by Repubs: establishing their own right wing media universe, removing barriers to money in politics, privatization, globalization and free trade. . . .

      Governing takes compromise and consensus, it requires outcomes that promote the welfare of many - - they are not the least bit interested in governing.

      Blessed are the peacemakers, the poor, the meek and the sick. Message to Repug Fundies: "DO you really wonder "what would Jesus do?" I didn't think so.

        how the public responds.  Whitewater, Monica Lewinsky, Swiftboating, the whole first term, on and on and on --  has the public wised up?  Will they fall for it one more time?

        The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama
