Payback is a motherf**ker. For 8 years you Republican bastards

have obstructed President Obama at nearly every turn, your latest stunt refusing to deliberate on his nominee to SCOTUS.

So yesterday, President Obama tied Trump around your puerile pissant necks, leaving you just enough air so that you remain conscious as Trump drains the last breaths from your putrid corpses.

Enjoy it, you Republican pricks. And know this: revenge is a dish best served motherf**king cold!

By telling Ryan and McChinless to withdraw their endorsement, Obama made it politically impossible for them to do so. that is some serious motherf**king jiu- jitsu.

24. He is definitely head and shoulders above all of them

Makes me proud that our first black President is this man. I hope due to what he's been able to accomplish in spite of the republiCONs that we'll see many more minorities in the oval office. Not just Blacks either but Women, Mexican, hell Mexican women too, Native Americans also. Our country is much better for us having elected Barack Obama as our President. No one nationality or gender should have a lock on the Presidency as its been for way too long now

I've voted for him 3 times. once in the primary and twice in the generals. My most proud votes ever to I might add.

I love my President and first family, Michelle, the Kids, and Grandmother

I'm a proud assed Okie.
If I could change my moniker here I'd change it to Proud Okie

9. While in reality I would not want SCOTUS anywhere near another presidential election..

under any circumstances, I do have a fantasy..

The RNC dumps Trump, despite having no rule that allows them to do so.
Several states parties ask SCOTUS to stop them, even though they may not have jurisdiction over the issue.
The Notorious RBG smiles sweetly at the Republicans, and votes to do so, and her posse follows suit.
Then she looks at Kennedy, who says, 'they've been condemning me since Obergefell, Fischer and the Texas abortion law ruling. Fuck 'em. Let 'em hump Trump."

As they often say on SCOTUSblog, 5 justices can do whatever they want.

35. Actually, NO!!!! I do NOT want them to dump Trump!

I hope they have to slog all the way to November like this.

What we DO NOT want OR need, brothers and sisters, is for Trump to step aside. Because by ANY comparison, whoever they bring in will be widely viewed as a relief, a colossally more reasonable individual, and all the defectors will go racing back and standing in solidarity with the party they're now on the verge of abandoning.

So we'll get Pence and Worse-Than-Pence. How 'bout Pence/Brownback? Or Pence/Snyder? Or Pence/Gingrich? Mike Pence is an extremist religious fanatic dressed in sheep's clothing. He will do everything he can to impose Christian Sharia Law on America.

NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!! We need Trump to stay right where he is. Because he could be the one who finally takes this dreadful political party down to its collective death. And THAT is what we really - actually, what we DESPERATELY - need, to rehabilitate our beloved country.

that the Republicans, "have obstructed President Obama."

It is not obstruction, it is deliberate sabotage of Social Security,

29. Hey CONS, remember: YOU Built This.

This is what your long-ago embrace of the worst of the racist South, and the Dixiecrats, has wrought.

This is what you get when you sidle up to the most extremist of the religious fanatics.

This is what you're left with when you've spent the last 30-40 years relentlessly teaching America to hate, resent, and be suspicious of government.

This is what results when you sow discord and hatred and divisiveness. And ENCOURAGE IT! And give it credibility and "respectability" and bring it out of the closet where everyone who used to keep that selfish antisocial and utterly Un-Christian crap to themselves can now stand up and be loud and proud about it! Thank you limbaugh, hate radio, Roger Ailes, and Pox Noise!

These are the conditions you created when you tried to push your idiot trickle-down economics on people, and convince them it'll work. Yeah! It'll WORK! This time it'll work! For sure! Believe me! This I can tell you.

This is what you're left with when you encourage sexism, racism, jingoism, and the worst and basest instincts of "humanity".

This is how it ends when you tilt the playing field, gerrymander the districts so the worst of the worst can easily get elected BY the worst of the worst, and then stay in power. So you've locked this inevitable conclusion in.

This is what happens when your having indulged and reveled in the worst, which inevitably then begets - and then births - the teabagger movement, with you as the collective midwife.

YOU BUILT THIS. Happy now?




On edit - I somehow forgot to add Pox Noise (and Roger Ailes) in the 4th paragraph. Shows how much all of this has started to get to me...

34. Trump is falling too fast and scaring the GOP

This is a problem for us. I have known (as have many others) that Trump cannot be Hillary. The GOP has an uphill battle to begin with but with Trump alienating people at every turn, it makes it unwinnable.

If they replace Trump with a moderate Republican, one that everyone likes, it may make for a challenge for Hillary.

I am not sure if this has ever been done before or how the GOP would accomplish this as their party will be fragmented beyond compare.

helped set my heart at ease years ago after the "re-election" of Shrub with this editorial. http://www.alternet.org/story/20413/mourning_in_america. If you've never seen it, read it now. It immediately came to mind after reading this
So yesterday, President Obama tied Trump around your puerile pissant necks, leaving you just enough air so that you remain conscious as Trump drains the last breaths from your putrid corpses.


The Republican Party wired that chicken around their necks when they cheated Junior into The White House. With an 8 year respite of fresh air from Obama, even they didn't notice the stench...until now. As I'd like to think Molly would say, "Chin up, dearies! This should be good."

54. The GOP destroyed media credibility. Now the mainstream gop

is upset that the tea party crowd isn't listening to the media on the clear danger trump presents.

55. I will probably get flamed for saying this, but I don't think that the attitude displayed in this OP

is the right one going forward. And it's not what President Obama said and I don't think it's what he wants. In fact he has said that many Trump supporters have legitimate grievances. It's just that they have hitched their wagon to the wrong star. And our nominee Hillary Clinton in her wisdom is actively campaigning for the support of Trump's white blue collar base.

We are all Americans or immigrants striving to become Americans. Republicans are our neighbors and our relatives. My parents are both staunch Republicans and they are some of the nicest people you could ever meet. And yes they support Donald Trump. But my mother is also the type of person who carries dog food around in the trunk of her car so she can pass it out to homeless people with pets that she encounters. And she also gives them handouts with information about various services in the community available to them. But yes she is a Republican. She has never known anything else. And while she doesn't approve of everything Trump says, she believes that things are so bad in this country that we need someone like Trump to stir things up. Of course she is dead wrong but she doesn't realize that.

I sense real anger and petulance in this OP. And I understand why. Many of the tactics employed by the Republicans over the years have bred division in this country, but don't you see that your attitude will only perpetuate that division? And what we need in this country right now is to come together, not move further apart.

So I got that off my chest. Now flame away if you wish.

60. No flames headed your way (from me, anyway). I take great delight in

 

seeing Republican leaders who have for too long danced with the Devil but not gone home with Him get hoist with their own petard.

To wit, Republicans now cannot repudiate Trump or they will be seen to have surrendered to President Obama and thereby lose the 35-40% of their base that are Trumpistas. On the other hand, if they fail to repudiate Trump, they risk losing the 55-60% of non-Trumpistas (the so-called 'moderate Republicans') who are ripe for the picking.

That's some serious payback to McChinless and Ryan for their stunts over the years.

I love it, and every time he does it I want to thank him and yell for more. Hit him harder!

It's working. Check the polls.

71. Concisely said:

Too bad we can't erase eight years of blatant obstruction of Obama; eight years of Cheney/Bush government now trying to blame the Iran fiasco on Clinton and Obama, eight years of egregious Reagan worship, then eight years of pursuing of the Clintons ( I love that the Obamas have been hard to malign). Could the Repugs get themselves together to actually govern? Maligning and obstructing their "opponents" as a way of governing seems to be all the Republicans have offered for decades. Trump is no surprise.

87. Cherry-picking the GOP base for sensible folks to cross-over vote is a bit like ...

 

Looking for pork chops in a Vegan restaurant.

But OK, let's let the Democratic Party campaign to the right, as they so much seem to want to do.

Just don't forget we are a Progressive Party.

Like we all said at The Convention.

97. Trump almist single-handedly has put the Senate and now

 

possibly the House into play. The latest FOX poll has her up by +10. If that trend continues or accelerates, many Repubs may stay home on Nov. 8. means HRC could have a DEM Congress for at least her first two years.

True when you are referring to the Anti-Obama strategy by Congress but what about the Trickle Down Economy Theroy that only worked for the rich for a total of nearly 50 years?

But...the hell-of- it is there are hundreds of Trump Yard signs across this Red County in this Solid Red State of Indiana which I believe Hillary will carry in the General
