Democrats and Donkey Votes

In the immediate aftermath of the 2014 midterm elections, President Obama controversially commented that his party’s overwhelming loss was due to “two thirds” of voters not turning out at the polls.

President Obama made some progress in his quest to save the world by having his climate change bill (also called the POS bill) pass the House of Representatives.
