Republicans will now begin blaming everything on Hillary Clinton when they’re not blaming things on Barack Obama.


Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus crowed that Louisianans had “rejected the Democrat agenda and the Obama-Clinton policies that have produced higher healthcare costs and job-killing regulations.”

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a likely Republican presidential contender in 2016, also sought to hang the loss around Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination…

The RNC said its new majority would allow it to pass the “pro-jobs legislation that was stalled in the Senate when Democrats were in control.”

Oh, you mean to improve upon all the jobs “killed” by President Obama?[su_csky_ad]

    I’m willing to bet once the new congress is sworn in
    those on the right will immediately claim “their”
    policies are the reason for any good economic news,
    just like after Bush left us on the edge of financial
    meltdown, every time some bad economic news comes, they
    claim it’s because of dems taking congress in 2006! and
    with our current peace and prosperity I bet the rightwing
    bullies can hardly wait to drag it back down again, then
    of course blame any bad news on the Dems!

      That’s why he needs to veto EVERYTHING coming from them!
      I don’t care if it’s a bill to name a street in Podunk, Iowa after a beloved local dog-catcher, treat them with the same contempt they treated him.
      Make the work for EVERY win.

      • Tim Coolio December 7th, 2014 at 8:55 pm

        Yes! Give the regressives a taste of what they’ve been giving us

      • whatthe46 December 7th, 2014 at 10:03 pm

        couldn’t agree more.

    • Wayout December 7th, 2014 at 9:13 pm

      Prosperity? I guess you haven’t heard the debt is now 18 trillion dollars. By 2025 it is estimated that the interest on the debt will be some 800 billion dollars a year alone! Do you really think that is a good thing?

      • Hirightnow December 7th, 2014 at 9:16 pm


      • Tim Coolio December 7th, 2014 at 9:24 pm

        I’m doing great, its prosperity for me, and I dont feel guilty because my party didn’t tank our economy with wars and tax cuts for ones who didn’t need them.

      • William December 8th, 2014 at 9:06 am

        And now you’ve come full circle. Abortion and national debt. Shall we address these issues one at a time? or do you want to go right to global warming?

      • SteveD December 11th, 2014 at 6:08 pm

        Interest on the debt is not a “problem”; it’s a benefit, as that does add currency to the economy. The notion that interest payments are a problem indicates a profound confusion about the difference between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty.

      • Ian December 12th, 2014 at 1:04 pm

        The National debt just reflects how much money other entities have voluntarily parked with the US Federal Govt. The media often tout it as being bad because they don’t know better. The “debt” has gorwn consistently for the past 75 years, and the US has had substantial economic growth. But don’t let the facts get in the way of the truth.

    The stupid, bigoted, ignorant racists who vote for the confederate/republican party are the enemy of our nation and our democracy.

    • Tim Coolio December 7th, 2014 at 8:59 pm

      When they vote against their best interests, behind closed doors the rich laugh their heads off,
      fox lies and their heads nod up and down like a bobble head doll and “yup, that must be the way it is”

    • Wayout December 7th, 2014 at 9:10 pm

      Why is “violence against women” any worse than violence against any other citizen? This idea that we have to have special laws for this group or that group of people is absurd, and totally against the concept of equal justice under the law. Violence is violence, and any one who perpetrates it should be dealt with harshly – no matter who it is against.

      • Hirightnow December 7th, 2014 at 9:16 pm

        Because if you get,say, raped (stay with me here…don’t abandon your keyboard all excited yet), you won’t get pregnant, and thus, cannot be forced to bear the child of that rape.
        Get it?
        OK, then…you can go now.
        Don’t forget to take a tissue with you.

        • Wayout December 7th, 2014 at 11:03 pm

          That’s right, kill the innocent child. How nice.

          • Kick Frenzy December 8th, 2014 at 1:12 am

            Dividing cells do not a child make.

          • rg9rts December 8th, 2014 at 4:10 am

            And the second that child leaves the womb YOU view it as a parasite on society

      • jasperjava December 8th, 2014 at 2:03 am

        If violence is to be dealt with harshly, a lot of conservatives will have to pay. They commit violence daily against immigrants, women, science, reason, humanity, hope, progress, children, the future, education, history, knowledge, etc.

        • KABoink_after_wingnut_hacker December 8th, 2014 at 8:54 am

          You can say that again!

      • rg9rts December 8th, 2014 at 4:09 am

        Till its YOUR daughter….then the open carry stand your ground comes out in you

      • William December 8th, 2014 at 8:59 am

        So Skippy?
        What legislation has ever been proposed to force a man to have a metal device inserted into their reproductive system by law?
        Let me put it another way.
        What do you call it when a woman has something forced into her vagina against her will?

  3. tiredoftea December 7th, 2014 at 9:00 pm

    If they had no one to blame, they would be forced to blame themselves. They certainly can’t have that, can they?

  4. Wayout December 7th, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    Speaking of Hillary, last week in a speech she said we should have empathy with our enemies. Empathy? I’m sorry, but I cannot empathize with people who lop other peoples’ heads off, rape women with abandon, wantonly kill children and others who do not agree with them. That statement is naïve at best and completely daft at worst. Couple those words with her deadly performance at the State Department and she is now doubly unqualified for any high elected office.

    • Hirightnow December 7th, 2014 at 9:13 pm

      Better just to blindly send other people’s sons and daughters to die in wars, and to Hell with diplomacy and spreading democracy,right?
      (I say “other people’s” in your case because you’re too stupid to serve in the military…they have standards.)

      • Spirit of America December 7th, 2014 at 10:46 pm

        LOL LOL, this caught my eye…

        “and to Hell with diplomacy”
        but then followed by
        “because you’re too stupid”


        • jasperjava December 8th, 2014 at 1:54 am

          If you think we need to use “diplomacy” to deal with right-wing crazies. I pity you.

          • Spirit of America December 8th, 2014 at 4:13 am

            um, no, actually it was just the irony of those 2 sentences used as they were.

            It is interesting, and quite telling, what you brought up though.

      • Wayout December 7th, 2014 at 10:54 pm

        Oh really? I am a PROUD veteran. So there!

        • jasperjava December 8th, 2014 at 1:49 am

          Liar. It has been well-established that you’re a chickenhawk, ready to send other people’s sons and daughters to fight and die for nothing while never having served yourself.

          Not too long ago you revealed what you thought about the brave men and women who serve in the military: you said you were “not all that aggrieved” if they come home in coffins and body bags, as long as they serve their purpose to be cannon fodder for right-wing conservative political causes and your corporate masters.

        • William December 8th, 2014 at 8:26 am

          Hey Skippy. The GOP created ISIS, but back to the subject at hand.

    • OldLefty December 7th, 2014 at 9:21 pm

      Exactly like we did in WW11.

      • William December 8th, 2014 at 8:53 am

        “like we did in WW11”
        Are you referring to the historical victory bought to courtesy of Democratic president Roosevelt?
        Are you suggesting that we believe you are a WWII veteran?…or
        Are you projecting some sort of wishful thinking to hide the shame of your puppet masters?

        • OldLefty December 8th, 2014 at 4:58 pm

          My puppet masters???

          • William December 8th, 2014 at 5:33 pm

            Sorry that was meant for the other guy who’s using the same avatar. My bad I looked at the avatar and not the name

          • OldLefty December 8th, 2014 at 5:51 pm

            I figured something like that.

          • William December 8th, 2014 at 6:22 pm

            Again, I need to be more careful when my disgust gets the best of me.

          • OldLefty December 8th, 2014 at 9:12 pm

            No problem.

    • jasperjava December 8th, 2014 at 1:41 am

      Of course, right-wing psychopaths don’t even understand the concept of empathy.

      • rg9rts December 8th, 2014 at 4:06 am

        Sure they do…they see it as a failing

    • fancypants December 8th, 2014 at 2:46 am

      hopefully by now most if not all people know what will happen to you if you fly to hostile countries and ignore all of the warnings about being a hostage or thrown into a slave camp. Im sorry to tell you the majority of them seem to be on the conservative side wayout.
      Now what were you saying about the dems ?

    • rg9rts December 8th, 2014 at 4:06 am

      You still around??? Romper Room is now open

    • William December 8th, 2014 at 8:46 am

      What?? You clowns have given up on Benghazi? ( you remember Benghazi? The most investigated event in American History that found NOTHING, NADDA, ZIP) Now you want to try to put Hillary in bed with ISIS?. I am fully aware that unless the screeching little chickenhawk Levin, or the drug soaked draft dodger dumped something into your feeding dish, you don’t know it exists. Therefore in a random act of Christian charity, I am furnishing you with a link that outlines the results of the GOP lead Benghazi investigation.
      So here you are again. No facts. No links. No proof, not even the slightest smidgin of anything that remotely resembles clarification, as you faithfully parrot whatever unsubstantiated slander you heard on the radio.
      We are looking forward to laughing at you again.

    If Teapubs want to blame anyone it should be themselves for obstruction of legislative procedures the last six years. They’ve done very little to get things done and refuse to work with Obama. Immigration and gun control would be a good start but the next two years nothing will happen because all they want to do is play the blame game…

    • Spirit of America December 7th, 2014 at 10:39 pm

      They both played that game… Reid has over 350+ bills he wouldn’t let come to the floor for a vote. Neither side wanted either side to accomplish anything… the folks are the losers in that game.

    • Wayout December 7th, 2014 at 10:57 pm

      This next year coming up it will be Obama’s turn to finally take a stand. Bills will be coming to his desk since Harry Reid will no longer be running interference for him. If nothing gets done it will be his fault.

    the political arena in the usa is a truly sad place filled with pathetic people in search of their own image on a dollar bill.

  7. fancypants December 8th, 2014 at 2:37 am

    tell us what jobs were created during the gwb administration
    While your at it show us a better healthcare plan for 2016

  8. rg9rts December 8th, 2014 at 4:02 am

    Benghazi benghazi…..wuh?? not anymore??

  9. Denise January 13th, 2015 at 9:18 am

    Smh. Healthcare cost have declined. As for killing jobs, the House blocked a bill for a jobs plan. There is no bigger job killer than blocking a bill designed to put American middle class people to work. The healthcare industry is hiring more people because of all the new signers that have enrolled in the AHA.
