Democrat Says Members of Tea Party Faction in House are “Domestic Enemies”
Rep. Cohen compares Ted Cruz and House Republicans to guerillas

Republican House members who are not long-term political careerists and who have not sworn allegiance to the Democrat faction of the corporatist party ruling the United States – instead of swearing allegiance to the Constitution – are ““domestic enemies,” according to Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen.
“I obviously do not have an opportunity to go within the conference, the Republican, we call it a caucus, they call it a conference,” Cohen told MSNBC. “But I know some of the members there, and a lot of those members, they’re rabid, they’re sophomoric, literally, they’re second term in Congress, never worked in politics before, and they think they are somehow like–it’s all talked in military terms. They think they’re some kind of guerillas there to strike a blow for freedom. I think they may try to pull this off again. What John Boehner is going to have to do is decide that he’s not going to be Speaker in 2015 and work with the same crew that gave us the opening-up of government: Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic caucus and give or take 80 reasonable Republicans and pass some bills to avoid another CR problem and shutdown and avoid the debt crisis, protect the country from these people, who really, you got to think, we take an oath to support the country against all enemies foreign and domestic, and these are the domestic enemies.”
