    Apparently not speech class. However, very entertaining right up to the point where he stopped taking any accountability for the problems in America blaming the other party instead.

    Let's see, you have to act like a viable leader during the election,

    but from what I've seen of C-span, the only time you actually have to

    represent anybody, by being present in DC, is during the POTUS's

    SOTU address. You need to have blame-shifting tuned to a fine art,

    and public displays of poor statesmanship are now a rising trend...

    They should require an IQ test, and a test on how well they know the Constitution.

    You must offer free things to more than 50% of the voters in your district. :eek:

    If pro is the opposite of con, what is the opposite of progress?

    Time to stock up on helium!

    Not sure how those clowns in Congress will function with helium sequestered only to national security and scientific needs.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    SURE, after all, islands are like ice cubes!

    They're not attached to anything!

    Look at all the islands which have flipped

    over in the past!

    Here's a novel idea.

    Ability to speak, read and write the American language, and not be drawing welfare to vote!

    That would get rid of most of them.

    Hell, if we only allowed illegal aliens to vote ONCE that would reduce the number of democrats in congress by 50 percent.

    Even the devil has to have some standards. I'm more worried about the people that elected him.
