"The discussion is how to put the Democrats in a box without attacking the president," - a Republican aide to the AP.
The discussion is not, it seems, how to deal with immigration. I'm not saying the Democrats are any better. I am saying that Congress seems much more concerned with partisan advantage than with actually grappling with serious issues. And they wonder why their ratings are so low. It's just as well they've rigged the system so they're re-elected at a 98 percent rate, isn't it?
