Mitt Romney? Why in the name of f*ck would we listen to political advice from someone who couldn't beat the worst president in the history of this country? It's like taking health advice from Marlon Brando's former fitness instructor.

I really do not know how this figure was derived.

But even if we were to take it at face value, that would mean that Barack Obama did not receive 89 percent of the vote from "Tea Party supporters," or 83 percent of "the conservative vote."

So you're basically saying that now that the positive element within the Republican Party that historically fought for racial and gender equality and opposed discrimination and oppression you're glad because now the Republican Party can really be the "Party of Angry White Men" that are willing to oppress anyone to retain White Male Supremacy in our social, economic, and political institutions.

GOT IT.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

No.

That is what you said--not what I said.

But anyone who truly believes that most Republicans are bigots would doubtless interpret it that way...

There is nothing remotely democratic about Pen and Phone governing by executive decree because Congress didn’t give him what he wanted. From making illegal recess appointments to illegally rewriting immigration law giving amnesty to millions Obama has governed like the Cuban dictators he is so intent on "transforming" the US to mirror.

Shiva's political stance can be summed up in two sentences:

It's some Republican's fault.

It's racist.
