    The confederacy needs to be defeated

  2. the GQP hasnt bothered to try and govern for more than a decade…. this isnt even a joke, what major legislation have they passed in the last decade besides tax cuts?….

  3. Division is an art of war, divide and conquer. Russia may be pushing the Republican party in this direction 🤔

  4. The GOP hasn’t legislated much of anything in 4years… they quit governance long ago.

  5. GOPQ govern? Maybe once upon a time long ago, They don’t gaf anymore. Reconciliation now, Chuck.

    They are not going to prevail. President Biden is a winner.

    It’s 79% in a new the new morning poll. 60% republicans. Let them vote against it. Their problem with those numbers.

  8. Trump never wanted to do the actual work of being president, he only enjoyed campaigning for it, and the GOP indulged his endless rallies. So it’s no surprise they’ve forgotten how to govern.

    • That’s what anyone would say who only reads and watches left wing “media” only. Watch all media even if you think it’s “conspiracy theory” content. You’ll find that there’s truth in a lot of different things that would change your opinion on who the msm really are. They have lied over and over.

      Trump didn’t have the skills to be a real President! –Bonnie Robinson

    • code- bleu
      You’re right. Also the power, control over others and the immunity from his crimes the job provided

      Trump left the responsibilities of the job up to others and once they’re done, he swoons in and take the credit. No one can name one thing that Trump has accomplished, but I can name who in his administration did what. When he was campaigning, he promised a better and cheaper healthcare to Obamacare, and expected the Republicans in Congress to develop it without any input from him.

      His rallies were held to boost his ego and make sure that his “leverage” was still in his pocket. Without his followers, he would have no control over the GOP, so he has to make sure that they stay in his corner and not forget about him.

    • @Drew Peesack I’ve tried to watch Fox a few times. The lies and conspiracy theories they were pushing were so disgusting I swore never again.
      What Fox put out was so far left-field I thought they were reporting from a different planet.
      I’ll stay with the main stream media, I find them more truthful and trustworthy than any mouthpiece or echo-chamber of the GoP will ever be.

    • @Michael Robinson “bonnie robinson” – never been president

    All Trump did during his presidency was grift, play golf, and campaign. 💩💩💩

  10. Ok GOP you don’t like Biden’s covid bill, WHAT ARE YOU OFFERING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE INSTEAD ???

  11. I concur with Jon Meacham here, but I’ll go a step beyond and say that that is exactly what the Republican mega-donors desire. A country that is tied up in knots is less able to regulate, and to the ultra elite capitalists legislate = regulate.

  12. Sooner Drumpf is in jail the better…..

    who is the enemy of the common american?
    hint: starts with “R”

  14. Trump ruined the GOP…I walked away…I just can’t believe that they would defend his actions.

  15. Take down the name of every Republican who supported the election nonsense. Donate to their challenger in every election; even if they don’t live in your state. Enough is enough.

    GOP hasn’t been interested in real governance for decades. Their whole reason for existence has been lowering tax rates for the wealthy, reducing or eliminating regulations for companies, and rigging election laws and voting rights so that they could stay in power with small minorities voting for them.

    Democrats should make laws to protect us from another wanna be dictator like Trump

  18. The GoP don’t care about governing any more, just holding onto power for the sake of it.
    Nothing shows this more than them having to gerrymander the election districts and suppress the voters that don’t vote for them.

  19. The GQP are finished having any hope of being a excellent or dependable or functional governing body able to take care of all America.

  20. Yes you need a lot of patience with the GQP because they talk and think like children.
