What have we here? Maxine Waters telling another tall tale? But of course! It wouldn’t be a compete Christmas holiday season without the meanderings of one of the United States Democrat Congressional representatives to spout off more nonsense leading us in to the new year. Maxine seems to have her lines crossed. By that we mean she lied straight through her democrat teeth. The cat is out of the bag now. Check out the latest words that fell out of her mouth below.

As Written by Allahpundit for Hit Air:
“We bend over backwards to work with people. Trump has stepped on everybody.”
Harry Reid didn’t seem so nice when he and his caucus stripped the Senate’s minority of its power to filibuster presidential nominees, but remind a Democrat of that and they’ll tell you it was a reasonable response to unreasonable Republican obstructionism. (They’ll tell you in the next breath that, given the present circumstances, they regret having done it.) An eternal rule of politics viewed through the left-media filter: When Republicans are “not nice,” it’s because they’re not nice. When Democrats are “not nice,” it’s because Republicans drove them to it.
Waters’s answer is predictable twice over. In the first place, every out-party copes with defeat to some degree by blaming it on the fact that it doesn’t fight hard enough. Their principles are correct; it’s the passion for those principles that’s lacking. That was a critique on the right of both McCain and Romney too. McCain wouldn’t go after Obama over Jeremiah Wright; Romney was too nice a guy to wage the war on the left that’s required to Make America Great Again. That lack of passion for political battle derived, supposedly, from their lack of passion for their ideology. (Never mind that Trump is far less of a doctrinaire conservative than either McCain or Romney is.) If either was a true believer in conservatism, he would have felt the urgency of the situation more deeply and responded by attacking with everything he had. It’s a comfort to believe this sort of thing when the alternative, that voters simply preferred the other guy’s political vision, is too painful to accept. Waters is showing you what that looks like here. The answer to the party’s problems is to be less nice……
