Trump’s Biggest ‘Accomplishment’ is Taking Credit for Obama’s Economy

Despite what Donald Trump, Fox News, and the rest of the conservative media say — or what their supporters want to believe — the economy was doing well long before this “president” was sworn into office. In fact, the economy was strong during the vast majority of Barack Obama’s presidency. Unemployment fell below 5 percent, […]

Mitch McConnell Embarrassed After Fact-Checking Site Debunks His Economic Growth Lie

When I first had someone tell me that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was trying to give credit to Republicans for our economic growth, I honestly and truly thought that they were kidding. That’s the kind of stuff I’ve been joking about for years. I can remember telling a buddy of mine around two years ago […]

Exposing John Boehner’s Outrageous Ignorance Following Strong Jobs Report

Perhaps many of you heard about the recent jobs report that exceeded estimates and dropped unemployment below 6 percent for the first time since 2008.

It’s The Job Market, Stupid, Whether The GOP Likes It Or Not

The more our job market improves, even in its weak and top-heavy way, the tougher it is for Republicans to spin what’s going on. If you listen to the GOP’s talking points and punditry, you’ll “learn” that crushing tax hikes, strangling regulations, and the albatross of Obamacare are dragging down the economy, making it impossible […]

Minimum Wage Increase Killed by GOP Obstructionists

Well, the obstructionists of the GOP have done it again. On April 30th, they bravely stood up in the Senate and blocked even the debate about raising the minimum wage… except none of them actually stood up and it wasn’t brave in the slightest. Bravery would have been engaging in the debate, making their case, […]

Elizabeth Warren Sets Paul Ryan Straight About Poor and Unemployed Americans

Without a doubt, Democrats need more senators like Elizabeth Warren.  She’s one of the few politicians who I feel is actually genuine when she speaks.  Not only that, her message is that of someone who seems to have the primary goal of fighting for the middle class.  Needless to say, I’m definitely an Elizabeth Warren […]

As Unemployment Hits 5-Year Lows, Republicans Pushing for More Bush-Era Economics

By now many of you might have heard that our economy added 203,000 jobs in November (beating estimates) and unemployment fell to its lowest levels since 2008. And though our economy still has a ways to go, it’s obvious that it’s heading in the right direction. This is something that should be good news for […]

Gov. Bobby Jindal Says President Obama Can “Learn From Louisiana”

Trying to maintain some sort of relevance in the political sphere, Bobby “Stop Being The Stupid Party” Jindal criticized President Obama once again in a press conference held in Baton Rouge on Thursday, ahead of the President’s visit to New Orleans on Friday to discuss domestic exports. According to Nola.com, Jindal stated the following: “I […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Heaven-Bound Corporations Dodge Martian Meteorites

Arise and crack open your morning hymnals!  Hey, Corporations, I’m talking to you!  I mean, if you consider yourself people, then the least you can do is get your sleepy, weekend asses in the shower and proceed to church to hand over all those quarterly profits to the poor box.  I’m sorry, what’s that, Mr. […]

Fun Facts Republicans Don’t Want You to Know About Obama’s Record on Jobs

I wrote an article a few weeks back debunking a lot of myths Republicans use to try and attack President Obama.  Now I wanted to expand a bit on one of the biggest myths Republicans perpetuate about the President, his “terrible jobs record.” Anyone who follows politics even a little knows Republicans frequently harp on […]
