GOP election loss is no surprise

I see lots of Republican-types complaining about the terrible debt the Democrats are running up. I would like to ask them just who was the last Republican president who balanced the budget? I’d wager they’d get pretty quiet. I really don’t think they would give the last president who did actually balance the national budget any credit either. For those who don’t know, that would be William J. Clinton.

If Bush would have carried on Clinton’s budget we would have all been better off. The GOP also seem to be mystified to why they lost the election. It looks to me like if you belong to a union, don’t go to church or you are not white, you are really not very welcome under their so called big tent. Not to mention being a young woman.
