Republican Congressman Richard Hanna Says the GOP is 'Incapable of Governing'

| by Michael Allen

Republican Congressman Richard Hanna (R-NY) recently slammed his own party for going after  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's aide Huma Abedin.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, also a Republican, has claimed that Abedin has ties to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and should be investigated.

While Sen. John McCain slammed Bachmann, many Republicans have come to her defense, including Newt Gingrich and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX).

Rep. Hanna told The Post-Standard: “I have to say that I’m frustrated by how much we, I mean the Republican Party, are willing to give deferential treatment to our extremes in this moment in history... we render ourselves incapable of governing when all we do is take severe sides."

"Iif all people do is go down there and join a team, and the team is invested in winning and you have something that looks very similar to the shirts and the skins, there’s not a lot of value there…I would say that the friends I have in the Democratic Party I find … much more congenial, a little less anger."
