    "McCarthy said Republicans will work to “unite” the country and reclaim the House majority, warning that Democrats only want to “disrupt.”"

    Perhaps McCarthy won because he was the only one who could say this with a straight face?

    funny have they STILL haven't investigated Jordan's tenure at OSU when a huge sexual scandal was going on with the wrestling team.

    What a great start - not! Accusing the democrats of what the GOP has been doing.. Projection is a time honored tactic, and these republican grubs are at it already. My opinion of these 'fine Amerikans' in the republican party would not pass the censors. Since W's time their only motto is 'divide and conquer, we have nothing else to hang our hats on'.

    So the Republicans installed just a regular run of the mill liar, instead of a psycho Teabagger liar.
    Why am I not comforted?

    Republicans had the presidency, both Houses of Congress, and just in case, the SCOTUS besides. And they managed to get exactly ONE major piece of legislation passed, their budget busting, make our grandkids pay for it, 'Tax Breaks for Millionaires' bill. With a Democratic House they can go back to what they do best - back bench sniping and name-calling. Mr Trump's one good character trait is that he is utterly incompetent at leadership. If he had a clue, the GOP could have done a lot more damage to America.

    "...developing a closer bond with the businessman-turned-president in Washington." Its too bad the news can't tell the truth on this. It should read "the con man-turned-president."

    Kevin McCarthy ??? Isn't he that FOX channel wanna-be comedian ?

  • Moderate Party

    Yeah, this is the guy who bragged about how the Benghazi hearings were used as a political tool to dirty up Hillary Clinton. Good choice Republicans, now you have two sexual predators on the SCOTUSA, a bonafide certifiable in the oval office, and another criminal mind heading up the minority in the HOR.

  • Bill Harvey

    Republican minority leader has a really nice sound to it.

    Look, it is Little Billy! He rose up under Bill Thomas' grooming... he looks just as smarmy and pasty. I wonder if he is as much of a fecal fleck?

    GOP "Leadership" has landed our country in an economic problem of their own making. JPMorgan Chase analysts estimate that in the first half of 2018, about $270 billion in corporate profits previously held overseas were repatriated to the United States and spent as a result of changes to the tax code. Some 46 percent of that, JPMorgan Chase analysts said, was spent on $124 billion in stock buybacks. The flow of repatriated corporate cash is just one tributary in what has become a flood of payouts to shareholders, both as buybacks and dividends expected to hit almost $1.3 trillion this year, up 28 percent from 2017, according to estimates from Goldman Sachs analysts.

    This is what happens when a bunch of “fiscally conservative” swamp creatures inherit an economy that was stewarded out of the abyss by a Democratic-run Congress and executive branch. They plunder it.

    By Republican standards, he isn’t dumb, but he’s pretty dumb.

  • snake

    McCarthy is perfect for the House GOP. He as the same lack of decency and class as Trump.

  • SJC

    Kevin is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

  • Army Brat

    Deal with it !! Republicans have been benched by the vast majority of real Americans who understand the value of inclusiveness and standing by a moral compsss
    Jordan who stood idly by as some teens were abused should have been removed from office but then again his idle has abused women for decades and continues today

    Jim Jordan about to release a memo detailing how this election was fraudulent and stolen out from under him.

  • Gmh Gmh

    Pretty sad when the qualifications to become a leader are not how many bills you passed but your fundraising and campaigning ability.

    Pelosi is running on the same podium of how she can win elections.

    I guess it’s asking too much for either party to prioritize American citizens needs over their party.

  • Michael McKay

    GOP select minority leader. Ruh roh, isn't this the Trumper's worst nightmare? To be the minority?

  • pksk531

    I can hear them screaming about lack of bipartisanship support from the Democrats. They are the most hypocritical bunch ever.
