There's the rub...The GOP finds it IMPOSSIBLE to put country ahead of party. Yes, there are instances where Democrats put party ahead of country but there are NO INSTANCES where Republicans put country ahead of party. At least no recent ones....John Roberts enabling ObamaCare does not count since SCOTUS decisions are not political.

Thus, the overuse of the Senatorial filibuster to block substantive votes on nominations and legislation; the gerrymandered districts that allow the House majority to hold power even though they got a minority of cast votes.

The GOP has no respect for democracy.

Unless we were without a president for the first three weeks of January 1969, Lyndon Johnson was president from 1963 to 1969, not 1968.

Lynda Johnson Robb needs to visit the Vietnam Memorial Wall over and over again before saying anything about the environment.

WOMEN IN CONSERVATION ... OF FREEDOM

Obama: Start Sweating the Small Stuff – Margaret Carlson, Time Magazine/Bloomberg News (Big Lefty)

“This is, after all, the man who claimed that his victorious 2008 campaign was “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” He was roundly (and rightly) derided for the grandiosity of that statement. It’s why the scandal at the Internal Revenue Service has been so damaging: It’s as if big blunders by a second-tier agency aren’t something he should trouble his gray head about. “
