    Totally agree with Lonna on the GOP wanting our country to fail for the sake of politics.

    Skipping down to the "loose cannons" part of your comment, Dave--I agree with you to a point. I don't think Biden's really the best example, though. He says some things that are eye-roll-inducing, but his gaffes don't approach the viciousness of the GOP's efforts to (as Lonna succinctly said) "torpedo" things that would be good for our country.

    If Texas does secede or is annexed by Mexico could they PLEASE take California also.So,as a staunch Republican allow me to repeat what I have sooo many times.Both major parties are rife with "LOOSE CANNONS".The prime example being our current Vice President who is King of "I got both feet stuck in my mouth at the same time".

    By the way--excerpt from below: :)

    Texas might see itself as culturally akin to its former fatherland, but as time goes on, the nation's destiny would be determined by its genetic ties to the south. If current demographic growth continues, Texas will become majority Hispanic within a generation. The prospect of Texas as the newest Latin American nation amuses Austin cultural marketing consultant Mando Rayo.

    "Texas becomes La Republica de Tejas," Rayo says. "The panhandle city of Amarillo becomes Amarillo, and our national pride, the Dallas Vaqueros, win the Super Bowl."

    Texas is allowed by US law to secede from the Union if it so desires. So if it gets too bad that could be a possibility of a second Republic of Texas and not participate in the "armed rebellion". LOL

    Some of the Members of the Grand OLD Party have staged So many asinine attacks on this President, they can't even figure out where or what they stand for. They've made it hard on the half of Candidate they have, b/c he will remonstrate legislation he was for 5 minutes earlier (I mean what I said, Whatever it was I said, when I said it, say's Mitt). Their best bet is to keep him muted til November b/c he can easily be dubbed super Hypocritical and an Elitist Liar. The GOP have no choice now but to run a Campaign of Fear Mongering, see Fox Noise 24 hour Propaganda Machine.

    Fox Noise is full of Conjecture "I THINK this witness is going to say Obama is a Muslim, Let's see....". Think Not, they Blamed last years Earthquake in August in DC on The President, what's their next Episode "Did Muslim Extremist Cause the Colorado Blaze?", Now if other orgs such as Huffington Post ruck back and showed The Colorado Wild Fires and a clip of Myth Romney saying "Didn't Obama get the Message in Wisconsin?, We don't need more Cops, Teachers annnnnnnnd FIREFIGHTERS?" Murdock would Keel over!

    I have a lot of different View, and I even like some of Ron Pau'ls Ideas, but the GOP is becoming an Antiquated interference for Real Progressives.

    IMO, They are Willing to SINK the WHOLE SHIP just to take down the Captain, I don't find ANYTHING Patriotic about that.

    Sorry, but They Have lost my Respect.

    Is America becoming a third world country? When will we begin to ostracize these groups who continue to divide us! If I say tomato and you say tomatoe are we not saying the same thing but in a different way! Politics are for politicians. America is for AMERICANS! Stop the party line BS!

    Treason? No. Stupidity, Oh heck yes! I don't think he was in any way calling for armed rebellion but it could easily be taken for just that by those looking for an excuse. We must be VERY careful, as many of us have discovered and are still discovering today, that our words are only two dimensional here on the Internet and e-mail. Words lose much of their meaning when you cannot hear the inflections in ones voice and/or expressions on ones face.

    This is, indeed, inflammatory rhetoric. I think more should have been done to correct this and a simple apology really is not enough. It does seem to be all too common to put one's mouth in motion before putting one's brain in gear!

    Would or should this not be considered treason? Politicians like all others and maybe even more so should be held accountable for their actions and their words...

    Oh my!

    "I should have read it more carefully. I would take out the part about armed rebellion," he said.
