The most recent edition of the GOP puts politics over country. The GOP had the opportunity to come to the table to fix the worst financial mess since 1929. However, the GOP saw a crisis so bad, they calculated it politically advantageous to sit out, do nothing, and not take ownership of any of the fixes and then put Barack Obama and Democrats on the hot seat when the economy didn’t turn around.
Republicans must stop talking about “activist judges.” Look up “activist judge” in the dictionary and you will now see Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and his conservative majority.
