    But he feels the party he believes in is better for the country, so “party over country” can then be seen as patriotic, at least to him. Pelosi is doing pretty much the same thing, though in the opposite direction.

    True for many. Not true for all. I don’t think Elizabeth Warren is in that camp.

    Pelosi passed the Affordable Care Act, because she thought it would be good for the American people, even though it was unpopular at the time, and likely to cost the Democrats seats in the next election.

    Hey, remember that time the Democratic Senate majority leader refused to hold a hearing for a Supreme Court nominee? Me neither.

    Obama didn’t reveal the investigation into Trump but the Republicans revealed the one into Clinton.

    It's amusing anyone thinks there are any good guys.

    They're all bad, it's just the evil you know, or the one you can live with vs. the one you can't.

    Dear Mitch. The guy who campaigned on term limits, and then stayed well beyond what he professed to believe was just.

    McConnell recently stated he wants to push the minimum smoking age to 21. That's a very, very liberal policy. It also hurts tobacco companies, most of which operate out of his home state. An industry that could attack him relentlessly with PAC money. And, Mitch, if you want to act like the Grim Reaper, then you best understand that God himself will smite you if he wants to.

    Six days ago, Boehner praised McConnell. Boehner sits on the board of Reynolds. You can see how this will play out in the coming year.

    Only one party wants to disarm the people of "military style weapons".

    The whole point of the 2nd was that "the people" would be able to bring their own "military style" weapons in oder to form a militia to repel invasions, and put down insurrections and rebellions.

    You may think that's outdated in the modern age, that surely the government could furnish supplies troops may need, however my brother was forced to go into Iraq in operation Iraqi freedom without a kevlar vest.

    Point being, Mitch is going to get a lot of votes he wouldn't otherwise get, because (D) doesn't respect the 2nd, and we just all have to live with the other BS (R) does to us when they are in power.

    I realize that the level of "gun control" that (D) wants to pass varies, and some of them are sensible, but you get stuck with the words and actions of the extreme case made by a very few members, and (R) hammers you with them come election time.

    The nuance is lost on most people, and all they hear is (D) wants your guns.

    You can make a list on both sides of people who stayed too long.

    And how has that worked out? As I recall, the ACA was born by her party, with no votes from Republicans.

    Good can be relative...

    It’s amusing republicans can’t point to any examples of their party taking country over party.

    And he supports right-wing policies that have been even worse for the country.

    How is voting a likely sex offender onto the Supreme Court a good thing for America?

    Especially when your party broke precedent on Garland.

    Trump’s policy positions are secondary to his corruption and overall lack of competence. Even if Trump were a liberal, I would be just as opposed to him and just as adamant that he should be removed from office.
