    What’s the matter…with the GOP party, and their satellite advocacy, dirty tricksters groups? In the past, when a US president of any party did something on behalf of all the people of the US,including both houses of Congress, its usually kosher to stand behind that leader, say after 9-11, or after the start of a world war, or after the shootings in Tucson..but the fact that he was crticized by such opponents is an example of the lack of civility in US politics today. Right or wrong? Defend your view in a few short words, say 10 or less, like you are …twittering! Thanks!
