Immigration is one of the most vexing problems in the ever-increasing list of vexing problems in America. It has festered for almost as long as we’ve been a nation and attempts at reform are as successful as Middle East peace talks. It is the albatross around every president’s neck and the cue for every Congress to go on vacation.
John Boehner wants to sue Barack Obama because of his tyrannical, kinginess usurping of Congressional power and I agree whole heartedly. I’m not kidding, it’s the most courageous thing I’ve seen a Republican do in the history of politics. In a party full of perpetual whiners, blockheaded bullies, and charlatans someone finally stood up, grew a set, and did something. What’s not to admire?
Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi! VA, VA, VA! We’re chock-a-block with “scandals” and “investigations” these days. It’s a cottage industry we’ve seen before and it threatens to become near life-long employment as it did for Ken Starr. But the thing is, not all governmental investigations are bad.
When is an Investigation Not an Investigation?
Investigations are good providing they aspire to the truth. Clearly, someone must get to the bottom of the VA mess for example. Internal investigations are useful and often helpful, but some problems are so large they need the extra visibility of a fair Congressional investigation.
