Pete Sessions tells his constituents they don't know how to listen.

In typical fashion, no reasonable response. Just more juvenile "They did it too" finger pointing.

 

And unfortunately for the right, the left isn't going to forget too soon just how bad the right acted over the past 8 years.

Sounds like the Republican party since 2008

Is that the same republican party that has the oval office, the house, the senate, a huge majority of governorships and more state houses than ever?

 

That republican party?

Yep, maybe the Dems figure they will get rewarded for it!

This is what is absolutely astonishing. The never ending propensity to lash out and point fingers without even the slightest consideration, that maybe their policies were the problem,that they were rejected through no less than four election cycles. Edited by volperdinger

"And unfortunately for the right, the left isn't going to forget too soon".... I agree, but scorched memories will be all they'll have. If they think that running to the left policywise, after the latest beating this past November is a comprehensive strategy, with twenty five Senate seats to defend in 2018, they're in for an even more bitter disappointment. At this point in time, the Dems, having run out of everything else that might stick, are banking on the only thing left: Impeachment. The numbers simply aren't there.

Not sure how big of a beating that was last November but I will give you that gerrymandering has really helped the Reps take over states.  If too many people in those red states get cut off their health insurance and food stamps, there may be a problem for some Reps.

The wheels on the bus go round and round.

 

The republicans have captured the White House this time. Unfortunately for them, they put a nut in the castle. Two months into his ascendance to the throne and he's still campaigning. The administration is in disarray. The King is communicating via Twitter and the FBI and Justice Department have already had to investigated the garbage he tweets. 

 

To the victor go the spoils.

It wasn't the poor people in red states that determined the last Presidential Election. How do you explain the fact that Michigan, Wisconsin, etc., otherwise known as the "Blue Wall" suddenly voted Republican after generationally voting for Democrats? Maybe after twenty plus years of bad trade deals, and having their healthcare destroyed by Obamacare, if you didn't qualify for a subsidy or belong to a union?

The Democrats nominated the only candidate that couldn't beat Donny.

Is there an electoral map out there somewhere that shows that purple had a deciding factor in carrying a state?

I don't agree with that. It is most definitely true thatHillary Clinton was not a very strong candidate, but she was good enough to defeat the worst presidential candidate in history. The Republicans, with the help of their Russian allies, won the election through deceit and corruption. Throw in an FBI director making an unsubstantiated public announcement about "reopening" the Clinton's email case just days before the election, while at the same time holding back the investigation on Trump-Russia, and you just tipped the scales for Trump.

Yep, Hillary really connected with the democratic base during the the campaign wearing twelve thousand dollar Armani pantsuits. I have news for you: Global banks weren't throwing millions of dollars at her despite the pantsuits. Btw, what's the going rate for a Hillary speech these days?

And you achieve healthcare for the poor and the elderly by saddling the middle class families that don't qualify for subsidies with $12,000 deductibles?

I can agree that ObamaCare could be improved. TrumpCare is not the solution.
