America's Real Traitors

John Boehner, aided by moderate Republicans and Democrats, brought a clean bill to a vote. The House--with 52 Republicans opposed--passed the bill. The President signed it 10 minutes before the deadline.

And for protecting the people of America, the Tea Party Republicans call the House speaker a RINO.

Over in the Senate, 47 right-wingers, in violation of the federal Logan Act that bars interference in foreign affairs during negotiations, sent a vicious letter to Iran, trying to undermine the President's legal and constitutional authority. Even the conservative New York Daily News condemned these senators, four of whom may become presidential candidates, none of whom believe in the Constitution and in the country.

It's not hard to see just who the real traitors are to America.

Maybe it's time to call those right-wingers who don't believe in the country to call them what they are likely to become if they keep up their obstruction--extinct.
