If by “Ungovernable” they mean that we can not be dragged, deceived, or beaten into accepting socialist, Marxist, dictatorship, they are DAMN WELL RIGHT. We are not a People who are governed by a dictator or dictator class. WE THE PEOPLE RULE THIS PLACE, and if they don’t like it they can get the hell out.

This may be groundwork for Obama’s attempt to rule by executive order.

It isn't ungovernable it just cannot be RULED!

They don't want to govern, they want to tyrannize!

Liberals Say U.S. Is Ungovernable.

By design and by the temperament of it's people. May it ever remain so.

but Reagan wasn’t an ‘amiable dunce.’ He thought and wrote and spoke about every issue that was facing this country. He was...an American Thinker.

Man, did this author BLOW IT!

Don't they realize that the founding fathers wrote the U.S. Constitution precisely to make it hard to control the Senate? The founders wanted to restrain momentary Pelosian majorities in the House of Representatives with regional power in the upper house. They set the controls to make the U.S. almost ungovernable -- by design.

He attributes a Senate RULE to the U.S. Constitution.

Quite incorrect.

(How many of you guys read this and didn't catch it? Shame!)

Clark Clifford, the "wise man of Washington," hadn't even thought of calling him an "amiable dunce." Not yet.

Clark Clifford? LMAO!
Isn't he the slimy Democrat crook who got indicted in the BCCI scandal and then proceeded to drop dead?

to govern means to control. hmm, freedom is having to say we do NOT want to be controlled. Limited government is a GOOD THING,

Liberals are at it again. They are worrying that the U.S. is "ungovernable."

If they're admitting they are incapable of governing, I would agree with them. But the fault lies in them, not America.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the filibuster a Senate procedural rule, and not something implemented by the Founders?

They’re pushing this crap all over.

Nonsense. We are the most ‘governed’ society in the history of mankind. The fact that we are willing to tolerate this in a non-violent manner blows the ‘ungovernable’ argument out of the water.
