I'm a black, gay woman. I think the only way to make the GOP hate me more is if I sent them a video of me rolling around on a pile of welfare checks.— Wanda Sykes
Blissful Gop quotations
You complain and demand zero compromise - so the GOP obstructs Obama so the economy doesn't improve - then you complain and demand even more zero compromise. Then you get to blame Obama for the slow recovery, which is sorta like John Wilkes Booth blaming Lincoln for missing the end of a play.
We need independents, we need the GOP, we need Reagan Democrats.
I have long said there are three distinct groups under the GOP's tent: theological warriors, who want to impose their social views on the rest of society; Tea Party zealots, who say with a straight face that they want the government to get out of their Medicare; and remnants of the pro-business moderates.
Every GOP administration since 1952 has let the Military-Industrial Complex loot the Treasury and plunge the nation into debt on the excuse of a wartime economic emergency.

My stance is that, we the people have the responsibility to take care of the indigent in our society. It's not the government's job. You can read the Constitution all you want, it never says that it is the government's job and I think where we've gotten confused.
What you don't hear from these GOP candidates is that they really can't go after this president on domestic production of oil and gas. He's actually done quite a lot. In fact, I would suspect they're environmentalists who are worried that we're doing too much drilling and fracking, in fact. I know that for a fact.
On GOP Tax Cuts: They'll take food out of the mouths of children to give tax cuts to the wealthiest.
One GOP Congressman named Carlos Curbelo actually suggested that Donald Trump may be a 'phantom candidate' that has been planted by Democrats. The DNC strongly denied this - while Hillary said, 'Crap, they figured it out! Take off the wig, Bill.'
The GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.
I don't think we need to name any names, do we? Our party is encumbered by an inconsistent approach to freedom. The new GOP will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and the personal sphere.
While GOP elites say they`re shocked, shocked, by [Donald] Trump`s religious bigotry, this is far from the first time Islamophobia has bubbled up in their party.
Didn't we settle contraception & affirmative action? If the GOP keep going backwards they'll soon be debating slavery.
The House GOP continues to fail to address the real & serious issues thatthousands of families face each day.

I just called to say, 'I love you.
The reality of it is I think the GOP - Republicans and certainly conservatives - will partner with the Tea Party movement around this country.
I don't really care about the GOPs or the Democratic Party.
My point is the people, giving the people truth.
Criticizing Fox News has nothing to do with criticizing the press.
Fox News is not a news organization. It is the de facto leader of the GOP, and it is long past time that it is treated as such by the media, elected officials and the public.
The GOP grows more and more unpopular with female voters seemingly every time one of its leaders gets in front of a microphone. Misogynist is as misogynist does. The GOP and its bloviating pundits don't like women and they are unable to hide it, nor do they seem to make much attempt to do so.
I have often said one of the reasons more blacks don't support Republicans is because they don't trust the GOP establishment.
When has a Democratic political activist been poisoned by the GOP, or vice versa? We are not the same as #Putin.
Our leaders are stupid. Our politicians are stupid.

Our politicians are stupid.And the Mexican government is much smarter, much sharper, much more cunning. And they send the bad ones over because they don't want to pay for them. They don't want to take care of them.
The GOP needs to live the planks of its platform, not just offer lip service.

If he hadn't inherited $200 million, you know where Donald Trump would be right now?

The average GOP presidential vote in these last five elections was 44.
5 percent. In the last three, it was 48.1 percent. Give Romney an extra point for voter disillusionment with Obama, and a half-point for being better financed than his predecessors. It still strikes me as a path to narrow defeat.
The GOP’s thirst for confrontation and crisis is symptomatic of a destructive and nihilistic streak that has overtaken our political system. When one party repudiates the whole concept of compromise, it is inevitable that the government will lurch from one crisis to another.
Can we please rename The Sandy Relief Bill to the Supplemental Iraq War Funding Bill so the GOP Congress can vote for it?
