They all know, deep down, that there is a problem here. Perhaps there will be a ‘tipping point’ that will compel some of them to actually begin to take (some kind of) action and uphold their oaths to our Constitution. Time will tell...hopefully sooner rather than latter.
If so, it’s be behind the scenes, so publicly they could cry and rend clothes and issues statements of support for Obama, and whine “what could we do? Our hands are tied by that dratted Constitution! It’s those Republican’s fault!!!”, and once the cameras are off, sip Champagne at aleviating themselves of a problem and again blaming the Right.
