I’m a small-business owner who is very proud to be a Democrat. I think that we do our state harm when we portray all Democrats as left-wing liberals or all Republicans as far-right extremists. I belong to a big party with diverse interests, and we’re not going to agree 100 percent on every single issue. But what we do agree on is that you move forward, and you do the things that are going to create success for the future. When I look at the Democratic convention, we were having fun, we were energized, we had hope. When I look at the Republican convention, they were mad, they were angry, and that was quite visible. Now, are both bases energized? Of course. But, you know, the Democratic party went through its own purity battles. It didn’t work out very well. When the pendulum swings too far to one side, in time the people will correct that.

A lovely story about Romney/Ryan.

This is the best, most concise explanation of the past four years ever.

I just really enjoy this analogy. A very clever metaphor.

This is still relevant and always will be.

our government is in a meme war

I can’t believe this is real

you know if someone had shown me this picture about 4 years ago i would have believed that it was some hamfisted attempt at satire or some sort of surreal distopian world but here we are 2014

The party that ran Mitt Romney for president has a lot of nerve playing the “Look how out-of-touch this rich person is!” card.

Here’s the attitude. Ohhhh. Don’t make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard. We get elected to make choices. We get elected to solve problems, and it’s remarkable to me how many of my colleagues just don’t want to… They’ll take the path of least resistance.

This bill is prejudiced. It’s prejudiced against women. A 14-year-old boy can go to the truck stop and buy all the condoms he wants. He can control his destiny. This bill takes the ability to control their destiny away from women. But that’s what we do in the Republican Party these days.
