Pelosi scares them

Just like AOR scares them. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton scare them as well. They go after people whom are strong/effective leaders but what they do is, in addition to vociferously attacking them by whatever means necessary, they try to instigate us to attack them as well via negative branding.

"Choice" only seems to matter

when it comes to CHOICE of religion one chooses to believe/participate in.

And, of course, those whom CHOOSE not to believe/participate in any religion are just bad people.

Which is completely mystifying

I just don't get certain parts of the country- where being a socially progressive liberal just trying to do good and help people gets so horribly villified for ?????? and yet they seem to have no problem with a 70 year old crass and boorish and buffoonish and woefully incompetent President gets heralded.

I just don't get it.

The Republicans have no authority-moral or otherwise

to complain about investigations of themselves-EVER!

How the hell does stuff like this happen

We are totally incompetent at running our elections- or certain individuals are anyway- deliberately or accidentally.

What the hell would doctors "consult" the NRA for?

Talk about "staying in your lane" LOL

I never thought otherwise

As soon as I became politically aware when I was about 16-17, I was firmly on the Democratic/progressive side of the fence based on their stance for reproductive rights and LGBT rights and concern for all Americans, not just the privileged few. Plus, that was around the time that Republican Party began its decent into its xtian worshipping, hatred and vile nature under Gingrich/Limbaugh/Fox that was directed towards anybody that wasn't "one of them". Their constant vitriolic attacks on the Clintons disgusted me and turned me off to them too. George W. Bush's 8 year "Reign of Error" and scare-mongering further insured that I could never join their ranks.

There's no way he's going to sign Democratic legislation that will make things "better"

We need a new President with a strong Democratic majority to start to fix things in 2021. The objective for now needs to be staunching the bleeding and blocking more radical legislation and holding Trump accountable like the Republicans should have been doing but obviously have repeatedly failed to do.

Geez. Where do I start to unpack this?

There are undoubtedly problems with the immigration system and there are some cracks that allow some people who shouldn't be here to get (back) in and, yes, some commit the same kind of crimes that other CITIZENS commit BUT it is extremely unfair- not to mention outright false- to pin the blame for stuff like this on any one political party for problems/issues with the immigration system that have existed for YEARS and which the Republicans steadfastly refused to work with President Obama during his years in office to address. Of course, I realize that this ad is garbage and devoid of any reasoning/logic.
