Republicans get what they deserve after their obstruction tactics

To Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: Your refusal to consider Merrick Garland for the United States Supreme Court is classic in your refusal to let the American government function with its normal business.

Because of your displeasure of having Barack Obama as a black, Democratic president, the Republican Party has done things like this so consistently that the Republican faithful have lost faith in you and the party leaders. It has cost the party, and consequently you now have Donald Trump, who will be nominated as the next Republican presidential candidate. You get what you deserve, Mitch!
