Chuck Schumer Can No Longer Be Senate Leader

One of my least favorite traits about Democrats is that we tend to get dissatisfied with our leaders pretty quickly. In the year following Obama’s inaugural, major news outlets were already writing articles saying Obama was disappointing them, despite the fact that he hadn’t even served a full term …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com
