Cuccinelli: Homeland Security Negotiations 'Embarrassing' for GOP

Shortly before the decision, Cuccinelli told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV the Republicans seem unable to negotiate and would rather roll over.

"You don't need to have a PhD in negotiating tactics. When you see something like that, you know you're looking at a guy who has no idea how one properly goes about negotiating anything," Cuccinelli said.

What is embarrassing is that congress is just rolling in the face of a president that is making fools of them. This includes andy Harris who based on his recent votes seems to be fitting right in with the establishment

The DHS is a dysfunctional fraud, an affront to freedom and a veil for the fascist takeover of America. Anything Congress can do to dissolve it is positive.

The DHS is a worthless government agency like the rest. We don't need them now , they don't protect anything.
