POTUS tweet Wednesday morning after the special election in Georgia’s 6th District:
“Democrats would do much better as a party if they got together with Republicans on Healthcare,Tax Cuts,Security, Obstruction doesn’t work!”

So tell me again how the Democrats are supposed to work together with the Republicans when the latter draft bills behind closed doors and do not allow the Democrats to even see what is being drafted so they can contribute.

And how Pelosi and the Democrats are able to obstruct when they are in a definite minority in both the House, the Senate, and the number of Governorships in the USA. As opposed to the earliest words of the Republicans when Obama was first elected, that the Republicans would resist anything Obama wanted to enact. And as proven by their multiple shutdowns of the government and refusal of the Senate to even consider vote on a Supreme Court nominee, as is their duty. Of course, if the Democrats adopt the same behaviour, maybe they can make obstruction work.

And how its “left” that is hateful when its the “right” that has been trying to keep anyone different from themselves from having the same rights and securities. When I was growing up, we were taught “judge not lest ye be judged”, but its only the more conservative and outspoken religious that seem to be judging others and proclaiming their lives and lifestyles as wrong. Not to forget that most hate crimes in this country are performed by people who don’t like anyone different in any way from themselves (Democrats don’t go to churches or synagogues or mosques and open fire, Democrats do not open fire on health clinic workers, and the non-religious do not protest at funerals for fallen heroes). By the way, I remember Democrats calling Republican behaviour deplorable, but its the Republicans who proudly call themselves that, and call anyone who disagrees with the a Libtard. Of course, what can you expect when a President went around calling his campaign opposition “Little”, “Lyin;”, “low energy”, ugly, “Cheating”, and such. Why wouldn’t his followers do the same?

By the way, my favorite remark from Karen Handel was that she, like other Republicans, does not believe in a livable wage. Her attempt to backtrack to say that the government shouldn’t be responsible for setting a minimum wage doesn’t cut it, as “I really believe that the solution to helping insure that all hard-working Georgians can make a good salary is not through mandates.” However, if not for federally mandated minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, many Georgia employers would not be paying their employees any more than the $5.15 an hour minimum stipulated by the Georgia legislature. Of course, the 6th District doesn’t have to worry about that, as many of them, like Representative-elect Handel, have made their money by using their name-recognition to advance rather than working for the benefit of others. One of the the things Handel did was to use the “woman” card, although she has not done much to improve the lives of woman who need help. But that does seem to be the Republican way.
