The only time I can remember Congress as a whole showing a spine in recent years was when they derailed Obama's march on Syria. An imperial presidency requires a weak and worthless legislature.

Really?

They voted themselves a raise despite public disappointment with them.

They were all so unbelievably brave when they donated 5% of their pay to demonstrate solidarity with the shutdown.Even more courageous was when they all chose to participate in ObamaCare® as well.

The entity that holds the purse strings is the entity responsible for this mess.
Obozo could not spend money like a drunken sailor if Boehner did not allow him to.

Our last declared war was in 1942. Pat, you should be ashamed of yourself for not knowing that.

“Where are the defenders of Congress from this searing indictment by Gates? Almost nowhere.”

Congressional defenders do not exist because the actions (including the inability to act) of this group of people, are in all ways indefensible!

Any one who would attempt to defend the current Congress would be laughed out of the room.

The howling lies, abject incompetence, self-serving greed, gratuitous discourtesy and summary lack of respect for the American people qualifies them for NO esteem whatsoever and IS ‘indefinable’.

Separation of powers has given way to a circle jerk of socialism/totalitarianism. DEFUND socialist collectives, foreign and domestic. DISMANTLE domestic socialist constructs.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

Pat, you forgot; many of our congresscritters did dumb stuff, and it is recorded digitally, and 0bvummer’s folks have it, just like Roberts...so, he makes them do whatever he wants.

Most of the power accrued by the Executive and Judicial Branch resulted from the Legislature's efforts to avoid risky votes.

Who looks to Congress today as the bulwark of our liberties?

The American people, but it is not the last bulwark.
That we reserve to ourselves.
