Here we go again. Jules Witcover, a known promoter of the liberal agenda, is bashing the GOP ("Boehner's stance on immigration puts GOP in peril," July 2). I guess he would like the Republicans in the House to just follow whatever the Democratic Senate sends to them. It doesn't seem to work the other way around, however, as anything the House sends to the Senate, Harry Reid never even brings to the floor.
Mr. Witcover writes that President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats were "frustrated throughout the president's first term by Republican congressional roadblocks." He forgets, conveniently, that the Democrats controlled the House and the Senate in half of the president's first term. It would be nice if both Mr. Witcover and Thomas F. Schaller would be unbiased contributors to The Sun and criticize the other side once in a while.
