Via The Hill:
If you’d asked me even six months ago, I would have told you that the Republicans were the party of shooting themselves in the foot. That, even when given great advantages by the American voting public — simultaneous majority control of the House of Representatives and the Senate, as well as the presidency — their leaders managed to squander those and disappoint their most ardent supporters.

Viral videos of leftists attacking Republican politicians in public places only motivate formerly apathetic conservatives.
