un4gvn666: The Stealth Hippopotamus: They think both parties are worthless

No. False. Wrong. Typical of a modern conservative.

Obama routinely gets high approval ratings while Republican approval is in the shiatter.

Young people support Democrats more than Republicans, and for obvious reasons.


The good news is that the R(ape) party has been showing their true colors for years now. Young people think they are pathetic losers. Women think they are pathetic losers who will strip them of their rights. Hispanics think they are pathetic losers who want to deport them. Old people think they are pathetic losers who will try to kill them.. There is no demographic where the R(ape) party can show any gains. So they have no choice but try to completely destroy the economy and blame it on the black guy.

Welcome to regional, marginal, permanent minority status, assholes. You deserve it.

Absolutely true. While the ultimate goal is to stop a Democratic President from achieving anything substantial (too late, btw, assholes. Obamacare ring a bell?), Republicans are using the filibuster to give them cover from having to explain their incredibly stupid, irresponsible, and provably false ideas on every modern policy in this country.
