"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

I'm a little bit surprised that the 'evil republicans' tune is still being played.

Low-information voters must be a lot lower than I thought...

OK... Americans are disgusted with Congress. Poll numbers tell that tale with eloquence.

Yet, Congressmen are re-elected routinely, and in large scale.

Why is that?

Because (generally speaking) people hate other people's congressional representatives and generally like their own.

I have nothing but disgust for Juan. He makes my blood boil, almost worse than Obama.

You know how far Juan has fallen when you like Bob Beckel better than you like Juan........
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

 :silly: The worse the numbers are for Obama, the harder Juan fights for him, even if it means making a fool of himself. He will do anything to cover for his black president, even though he must know deep down, his hero is a phony.

Frightening, isn't it?

When Beckel seems like the reasonable liberal in comparison with Juan??

Juan is an Obama worshipper, and it has taken any shred of reason he once possessed away from him.

Same here, but at least you know his comments are what he believes in his heart and he really is a bleeding heart liberal, not a progressive, Juan is just plain ignorant.

And to think he raised conservatives. There is something besides being ignorant going on. I think it's a lot about money and his racism.

He's not ignorant.

Racist... probably.

Greed over integrity?  Definitely...

Definitely agree.

It's got to be about greed.

The shame is that many of us thought that Juan did have integrity, but now know better.

Wonder if there were some personal perks promised by the racist president to the racist, slobbering 'journalist' Juan.................

I can stomach an honest leftist ideologue far more than an opportunistic politician who spouts leftist ideology in order to gain power, or a leftist tool spouting off talking points for political gain.

Indeed.

I feel as though something has snapped inside him, and he's lost all rational thought.

No offense, but I always thought he could be a bit dopey, but now he's angry to a level that I don't think is healthy.

At NPR he was censored. On Fox, he took on the 'anything goes' mantra, and overdid he new found freedom of speech. Now, he thinks he can say anything and get away with it. His million dollar contract can easily be rescinded. He's using Fox by using his race. Besides, reporters and journalists on Fox also think he's nuts, and he's so easy for them. He makes them look even smarter.
