Occasionally, I’m accused by some commenters of “skewing things against Republicans,” or that I’m a “shill for Obama.” So, today, to underscore how wrong those assessments are, and to hopefully drive home the point that my “attacks” against Republicans are neither unwarranted nor untrue, I’m simply going to post some verbatim quotes by Republicans and […]
