“Obama has always had a certain amount of contempt for the modern media and its endless Politico-style pursuit of shiny objects designed to “win the morning.” Ditto for the parochial nature of congressional politics and the insane tea-party style of no-compromise governing adopted by the modern Republican Party. Because of that, he’s often a lousy politician…”

“Just when you think Republicans can’t sink any lower, they do. Attacking Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl isn’t cutting it anymore. They want more. Now Republicans are going to after his dad, his father, Bob Bergdahl. These guys are ruthless. They have no boundaries. Republicans have made Bob Bergdahl a tool in their toolbox to take down President Obama. They’ll try anything. They don’t like the way he looks. They don’t like the way he talks. They don’t like what comes out of his mouth and they can’t stand the fact that Bob Bergdahl doesn’t hate Muslims.

…For Congress and the conservative media to suggest that they know more than the military brass is an outrage. It’s an insult. Republicans, they’re not supporting the troops. They’re attacking the troops. They think our generals are idiots and can’t figure out what happened to this guy, and they don’t want to give him time to do it because they hate Obama so much. Republicans are disingenuous when they claim to support the troops and attack Bowe Bergdahl’s father. The one person who is supporting the troops, is President Obama. He is standing behind his decision.”

“Overall, Republican policies are targeted to hurt minority Americans. Paul Ryan’s budget hurts. Their actions hurt.

…I do believe that the conservatives in this country continue to fuel racism by their policies that attack minorities in this country and try to keep the working folk down. It emboldens people who are in power to say what they say with absolutely no responsibility whatsoever. Kids are watching. They’re listening. What kind of example are we setting?”

“…racist, misogynist, money-grubbing people have so much power over the rest of us. And want things to go back—not to 1955, but to 1855. There are a lot of people out there that do not want black people to vote, do not want Latinos to vote. Do not want old people to vote, or young people to vote. Because generally, people like you are liberal.

It’s absolutely possible that the Republicans will take over the Senate as well as the House. And we will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens. I mean, colleges will start closing up if they, if these people have their way. They don’t think money should go to giving you people dangerous ideas about how the world should be run.”

“The breaking news at this hour is that the Affordable Care Act has reached six million sign ups. To me, I think this is amazing. When you consider the countless hours on rightwing radio, 600 stations across the country that basically did a Jihad on Obamacare.”

“[W]hat is it in the Republican DNA that makes them talk as if they’ve never talked with women? Why do they speak as if they are the party of cave dwellers who come out of their habitats every four years, say, or so, to grunt something so retro, so awkward, so Cro-Magnon as this?”

“That’s why you’re left with Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. They’re not going to be elected president of the United States. So, now they got to go back to Jeb. Let’s go back to the Bushes again. Let’s try them one more time. And that’s what everybody is talking about right now. Republicans are not crazy. They’re not going to run a right-winger. The only guy that could have won — I think Christie would have been a hell of a candidate before this mess.”

James Morrison

“No alternative health care plan besides repealing #ACA or government shut down? Hack the ACA website. Conservative governance at its finest.”
