    We have the crappiest media and Boehner knows it.

    When Immigration reform dies, the GOP has to find a way to blame it on "both sides" contributing to the Teahadi's policy murder.

    How do you make premeditated murder look like a bipartisan problem?

    In DC your ax has a label on the handle:

    "Both sides do it to/Both sides are to blame".

    So. BoneHead finds a mic.

    "We see the problem. We get it needs to be fixed. Nobody in DC wants to deny black people the right to vote, deny hungry people access to food assistance, or see millions of people stuck in limbo..."

    Blah. Blah. Blah. Blah. Blah.

    Argle Bargle. Argle Bargle. Argle Bargle.

    Where is this guy when the gavel is hammered?

    Nowhere. Because it's a scam to muddy the waters.

    "We wanted to fix this mess, this important thing we all care about, that we don't really want to fix, and don't care about. But. Politics. Sad. I blame Nancy Pelosi. I do. I really do. We wanted to fix this, but. You know this town. This is not about just blame it on the Democrats and the White House when it fails because of us. No. Not at all. Hey, Luke. Lookin' good. Your dad would be proud of you."

    He can see Luke Russert eagerly taking notes.

    He knows that dimwit useful idiot Ed Henry can still get all the White House Press Corpse bombarding the White House spokesperson with talking points right out of Heritage or AEI.

    Then, he smiles. Bingo. It still works.

    Get the chumps, like lil' Luke Russert, to go out and puke up what you just said, the nonsense that has nothing to do with why something is shitting the bed, by design, but makes murder look like an earthquake. Something that just happens in this town. Politics. What are you gonna do?

    He recognizes, in a sweeping generalizationy way, that there is a problem that needs to be fixed. Giving the impression to the Village idiots that he can tell that the sky is blue, after all. Duh.

    And then, he plays the victim. He wants to do more, but.... DC. Everybody is playing their own reindeer games. Shucks. We all know this is a problem, but, sheesh, you know this town. Politics. So much rancor. So much gaming and partisanship.

    The Village reports on what they say more often that what they do. You want muddy waters, enable the crazies and talk reasonable in a meta big-picture way.

    All you have to do to get CNN and the WaPo and the Sunday Rich White Boys to spout your crap is to make reasonable mouth sounds. Then, go back to being crazy with the cover of the news media spouting "both sides do it too".

    Everything the GOP does is enabled.

    The public not having the slightest fucking clue as to who is to blame specifically is by design.

    I am a Loco-Foco. I am from the Elizabeth Warren wing of the Democratic Party.

      everything you say likely only applies to the English language media.  Univision et al know what's going down.  And electorally that might be more relevant.
