House GOP desperately seeking agenda


As humorous as it is sometimes watching the republicans fight amongst themselves, it gets in the way of them doing meaningful work that the voters back home sent them do DC for. The constant infighting and delaying tactics that result are not good for the country.

Let's hope the party leadership gets their ducks in a row and gets back to improving our situation as a whole, and not pursuing the same lame delaying tactics they employed in the vain attempt to stop the presidents reelection.

The 112th congress under the returning speaker is now the true holder of the "do nothing congress" label ... if the 113th brakes that record, we are all screwed.
