    President Obama and Democrats on Capitol Hill are increasingly referring to the Congress as “Republican” even though their party controls one-half of the unpopular institution.

    Obama and his allies have started to deploy the phrase “Republican Congress” in what some experts see as a clear attempt to gain a political advantage







    because they are lying sacks of shit.











    “I’m the first one to acknowledge that the relations between myself and the Republican Congress have not been good over the last several months, but it’s not for lack of effort,” Obama told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos earlier this month.
    “It has to do with the fact that, you know, they’ve made a decision to follow what is a pretty extreme approach to governance,” he said.

    It's "majority rule" not "majority tyranny". The rules are set up to avoid just that.

    If you had just plain "majority rule" (51%) then the Majority would just trample the Minority all the time.

    Think about that.

    The minority is not being trampled.

    They pretend they are.

    They just want their way no matter what the majority of Americans want.

    Look at the polls.

    The Americans people want action and the republican minority do everything to keep anything from being done.


    Your party gave up on Democracy and no longer likes it.
