Hey, did you hear the new Democratic Spin?

Republican Obstructionism is the reason why people are fed up....


House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) on Tuesday said that angst voters have expressed early this election year is the result of GOP obstructionism, not the Democrats agenda…

    There's a difference between democrats - private citizens who claim a preference for one party over another, and Democrats - public representatives elected to represent the Democratic Party. The first one, honestly is pretty inconsequential, just like republicans. It's the elected and and the appointed Party who get the "privilege" of speaking on behalf of all the democrats whether they agree with them or not.

  • Hoyer: Voters upset about GOP obstructionism, not Dem agenda


     So voters are upset with GOP, NOT the liberal agenda... And they show their frustrations out by voting IN a Republican? Seriously? With Liberal Logic like that, who can look at these idiots with a straight face?

  • Boy.... If only they televised the hearings, debates, and 'meetings' on C-SPAN~maybe then we could see just HOW obstructing those pesky Republicans were... LOL... Idiots.  Last I heard not ONE republican was invited to some of these "closed door meetings" to even have a chance to 'obstruct'....

  • I am trying to figure out how they OBSTRUCTED when the deals were crafted by the Dems BEHIND DOORS WHERE THE LOCKS HAD BEEN CHANGED.

    But heaven knows they have to blame someone.
