Lyndon Johnson: We shall overcome! Barack Obama: Easy for you to say... you never had to work with this Congress!
Once again the Republicans are on the correct side of history.
I never realized the hate oozing from the editorial cartoonists.
The Republicans in congress are doing their job. Their intention is to keep everything just as it is, unless they can manage to return to the “good old days” of the 19th century, before there was a middle class and when only the landed gentry were voters. And, they have a great strategy for accomplishing this. 1. Disenfranchise everyone you possibly can, unless they are dependable Republican voters.2. Produce ads and media emphasis which emphasizes those politicians who are corrupt and incompetent. Paint all Democrats with the same slime. Lacking sufficient actual slime, simply make some up. This undermines the people’s trust in their government and makes them feel like helpless pawns, so they tune out the whole process and accept the status quo. 3. Support the “job creators”, who are the recipients of a huge portion of the GNP, although that GNP was produced by working people, who are receiving less benefit from it every day. This gives them the money to accomplish the other two goals, and leaves everyone except the “job creators” with increasingly less money to mount a counter campaign. So, this is the way we are going lose the middle class and become a country inhabited only by the very rich 1%, and a 99% who are too busy working two jobs to survive to notice.
seems to me that LBJ was neck-deep in the anhydrous amonia scandal, along with Billy Sol Estes…just .another politician
Name for us legislation passed by Republicans over the last 20 years, that actually helped this country.
LBJ knew how to work with this Congress and cross party lines. In fact, he did get the previous civil rights act in 1957 passed the Senate when he was majority leader. I will concede that he did not have one obstructionist party in the House at the time. The problem was the Senate and all the chairmen who were blocking the legislation.
I see. So only “conservatives” know what hard work is? With such amazing, intuitive knowledge – you conservatives must have god-like powers to know such empirical truth..Or really hate a lot of people, for some weird reason..
