House Majority Leader Defeated In Primary

Ryanrule Re:hahaha! (932 comments)

Thats populism. The libertards of the gop court that demo.

The problem with the gop is they are trying to go big tent, but they want voting in lockstep. The dems have decades of dealing with big tent, more parliamentary/compromise style of govt. They have had to do it within their own party since the 60s. The gop is new to this. They will stumble (as they already have), and possibly fall.
