    Bill Clinton once said "getting Democrats to agree on a course of action is like herding cats" This must also apply to voting. Millions of registered Democrats never bothered to vote on election day. They will live to regret that decision! Donald Trump is now President elect, and his pick to head of the EPA is someone with a history of hating the EPA. Scott Pruitt, the oil friendly attorney General from Oklahoma is now officially the fox who gets to guard the hen house. Out with clean energy, in with dirty energy. Democrats: A little less analysis, and a little more action on election day might serve you better! 😲

    There are two options: either Pruitt is a conspiracy lunatic like Trump, or he's paid to lie by Big Oil. I'm not sure which one is worse.

    One more time, for the slow ones.

    Millions of registered Democrats didn't vote because they were stripped off the voter rolls.

    You add insult to their injury with this specious claim that they "didn't bother to vote".

    Educate yourself: Google Kris Kobach and Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program.

    That's not exactly true. Many of these same voters managed to make it to the polls to vote for Obama, but they couldn't make it there to vote for Hillary?? Hmmm..

    Clinton got about the same number of votes as Obama did - she lost some to Trump though, who did particularly well with uneducated voters.

    Millions of voters were discouraged or prevented from voting which almost certainly granted Trump the victory. Still, sixty million people did think he'd make a good president.

    They didn't get their free houses and Obama phones last time so why not stay home and drink beer and watch Whats Happening reruns.
