Foul Mouthed Republicans Too Close To Presidency

Posted: January 9, 2013

Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner’s suggestion that Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid commit a physical impossibility upon himself shows how deeply dysfunctional Congress has become.

Scary thing is, the speaker is second in line for the presidency. It could be worse. When Vice President Dick Cheney dropped the f-bomb on Sen. Patrick Leahy on the Senate floor in 2004, Mr. Cheney was first in line for the presidency.

How is it that these are the kind of politicians we elect to be a heartbeat away from the presidency?
