Angry "Liberals" and "Democrats" are getting more and more vocal. States no healing it would seem.

It didn't happen. Fake News. The people of Rhode Island were actually singing his praises and calling him the new Messiah. But the MSM would never show that.

Sooner or later the liberals are going to marginalize themselves and morph into a radical party that No one will vote for. I really don't know what happened to the Democratic party? 25 years ago they weren't that looney, difficult, yes, but down and out nutty, not at all.

@PT

Now you know what it feels like when Obama kept blaming Bush for everything for over 7 years, Yeah, I would have given him a pass for the first year, but after that, he should have owned it and never did and the left loved it, so don't act so surprised. I am still at a loss at how Dems will handle the next 4 years....jeez!

People said the same of the Republican party, for doing things that the Democrats are doing now, yet the Republicans won. So it's a winning strategy. The Democrats aren't marginalizing themselves, they're adopting winning tactics.

I don't remember ever hearing Obama blame Bush for anything.

They listened to the people, weren't belligerent and thought serious about the working man, about jobs, the military and didn't kick White people aside as being a group that is unimportant in America, yes, it worked brilliantly.

So it's a winning strategy. The Democrats aren't marginalizing themselves, they're adopting winning tactics.

The Dems have No leader, No message, don't control anything are completely marginalized as a party are beyond crying and whining, it's getting to the point where people are getting scared of their forceful and violent tactics, the only thing that will work for these loons is keeping them a coastal fringe party and for people like us Independents will be the new home where everyone will go to and the Democratic party will be a party of the past.

While there are plenty of examples of Obama talking of problems that started before he took office, I can't find any where he specifically named Bush.

How could you not? He even used terms the previous admin. a lot. It was only last year where he finally got tired of using it.

Readers, Obama is not relevant to this discussion.

Why can't he hold a town hall meeting in his home state? I can see why people would think this beta a coward

If the protests claim that Ryan's values are Wall St. values, do you disagree? That's what this story is about, isn't it?

Good to see I am not the only one to see its painful watching this goofball brown nose trump & now follows him around like a puppy dog, its all rather said & pathetic to watch someone change their values so much just to survive, all rather shamefull

What country are you talking about? It's not happening in the US. The left is dead.

Oh, I know about 8 other former prominent politicians that said the same thing.

People like Ryan and Cruz would stab their mothers in the back if it furthered their careers. They've been insulted time and time again by Trump and yet, each time, they go back polishing his shoes. No backbones and no pride.

Democrats are just following the organizational system that the Tea Party built. The difference is that no one claimed they were paid.

Ryan described some of Trump's comments as textbook racism....then voted for him. He's getting getting hit with charges of being a coward from a lot of sides. One website just offered to send Ryan a pair of (ping pong) balls: http://sendpaulryanballs.com/.

This was a pretty funny piece by Samantha Bee, one of the rising stars in comedy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAEJsE-TUvQ. It mocks him with "Profiles in Courage."

SuperLib - Democrats are just following the organizational system that the Tea Party built. The difference is that no one claimed they were paid.

LOL. The Democrats hated the Tea Party and ridiculed them every chance they could get. As it turned out, the Tea Party's success at getting it's candidates elected made it the most successful 3rd party since the Republican Party of the 1830's. I guess all that ridicule really turned out the vote - for the opposition party. Good job. The end result was that, over the last eight years, the voters replaced the Democrats as the majority party in both houses of Congress. The Democrats claiming that they're the next Tea Party reeks of desperation.

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan was invited to speak. A few hundred protestors, probably the usual suspects, attempted to disrupt Ryan's meeting with a career training organization. Are these protest organizers offer anyone a job, or a chance at a job? I wonder how much protesting pays these days?

But did you hear that after spending months getting hysteric about Hillary not using an official mail server, the Republicans are now trying to justify it when Pence did it! They aren't even calling for a single inquiry much less 843 of them!

Lock him up! Lock him up!

(don't worry guys, only about 18 more months of this to catch up with you guys on the matter)

What I said was the Democrats are using the Tea Party's organizational methods. We have zero interest in becoming scorched earth ideologists who will bring the system down if we don't get our way.

The paid part is something the GOP invented to sideline the message. If a protestor is angry that he could lose his health insurance it's easier to write him off as paid since you don't have to address people losing their insurance. Their message is "everyone agrees with us unless they are paid not to."

The main difference is that the Tea Party gained the trust of the voters which enabled them to elect Tea Party candidates in spite of opposition from both the Democrat and Republican parties. The Tea Party was successful. The Democrat Party has been losing seats because they lost the trust of the voters. Which is why the Democrats lost control of both houses of Congress. If progressives, liberals, and Democrats were to start a movement independent of the Democrat Party, they might be able to equal the success of the Tea Party. If not, well, four years, or maybe eight years, isn't really that long of a time frame.
