They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and if that holds true, Democrats will seriously come to regret their decision to sit on their hands while President Trump touted the positive developments his policies have had on the lives of everyday Americans during his first State of the Union address.
Those who watched will remember that the vast majority of Democrats either refused to stand, applaud, or both when Trump discussed issues that should transcend partisan politics, including job creation, lower unemployment rates among minorities, higher wages, bonuses, efforts to fight the opioid epidemic, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, the American flag, national anthem, In God We Trust, diminishing the Islamic State, and more.
So, the Republican National Committee was smart to compile clips of some of the most jaw-dropping moments when Democrats were too overcome by their disdain for the president to be happy for the American people.
In the end, the clip asks Democrats what they stand for, which is a very good question. Clearly, not the American people.
VIDEO: Democrats: What do you stand for?
As the midterm elections draw nearer, Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, veterans, and patriots of all stars and stripes may forget what the president talked about during his State of the Union address but they wont forget these images.
President Trump will not waver in his commitment to the American people, RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniels said in a statement--something Congress could stand to learn from.
President Trumps first year in office has been marked by policies that uplift the American people, strengthen our nations economy, and keep our communities safe, she said. From the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to rebuilding our military and working to defeat terrorism, the President has made the well-being of every single American his priority."
"Congress needs to unite behind the Presidents vision for a safe, strong, and proud America now and in the years ahead," she added.
Great ad. While I know and agree with what Trump stands for, you have to ask, however, RNC, what do you stand for? I am cynical because I have watched them skirt this issue for too long, and I would like an honest answer.
They stand for the enemies of God, family, country, freedom.
Sex without consequences
Abolishing the Constitution
Government control over all aspect of your life

Citizens to RNC: When are you going to side with the citizens and the rule of law instead of helping the Democrats import more voters?
THE DEMOCRATS CREEDwhat they truly believe
I Believe by Michael Kelly
I believe President Bill Clinton. I have always believed him. I believed him when he said he had never been drafted in the Vietnam War and I believed him when he said he had forgotten to mention that he had been drafted in the Vietnam War. I believed him when he said he hadnt had sex with Gennifer Flowers and I believe him now, when he reportedly says he did.
I believe the president did not rent out the Lincoln Bedroom, did not sell access to himself and the vice president to hundreds of well-heeled special pleaders and did not supervise the largest, most systematic money-laundering operation in campaign finance history, collecting more than $ 3 million in illegal and improper donations. I believe that Charlie Trie and James Riady were motivated by nothing but patriotism for their adopted country.
I believe President Clinton when he conceded that his administration mistakenly obtained the FBI files of more than 300 people, including many top Republicans. I believe it was the result of a completely honest bureaucratic snafu involving security clearances.
I believe Clintons chief of staff, Leon Panetta, when he told reporters that obviously a mistake was made and apologized to the people whose FBI files wound up at the White House. I believe Clinton when he said I completely support what my COS Panetta said about the affair.
I believed Vice President Gore when he said that he had made dunning calls to political contributors on a few occasions from his White House office, and I believed him when he said that, actually, a few meant 46. I believe in no controlling legal authority.
I believe Bruce Babbitt when he says that the $ 286,000 contributed to the DNC by Indian tribes opposed to granting a casino license to rival tribes had nothing to do with his denial of the license. I believed the secretary when he said that he had not been instructed in this matter by then-White House deputy chief of staff Harold Ickes. I believed him when he said later that he had told lobbyist and friend Paul Eckstein that Ickes had told him to move on the casino decision, but that he had been lying to Eckstein. I agree with the secretary that it is an outrage that anyone would question his integrity.
I believe in the Clinton Standard of adherence to the nations campaign finance and bribery laws, enunciated by the president on March 7, 1997: I dont believe you can find any evidence of the fact that I had changed government policy solely because of a contribution. I note with approval the use of the word evidence and also the use of the word solely. I believe that it is proper to change government policy to address the concerns of people who have given the president money, as long as nobody can find evidence of this being the sole reason.
I believe the president has lived up to his promise to preside over the most ethical administration in American history. I believe that indicted former agriculture secretary Mike Espy did not accept $ 35,000 in illegal favors from Tyson Foods and other regulated businesses. I believe that indicted former housing secretary Henry Cisneros did not lie to the FBI and tell others to lie to cover up $ 250,000 in blackmail payments to his former mistress. I believe that convicted former associate attorney general Webster Hubbell was not involved in the obstruction of justice when the presidents minions arranged for Hubbell to receive $ 400,000 in sweetheart consulting deals at a time when he was reneging on his promise to cooperate with Kenneth Starrs Whitewater investigation.
I believe Paula Jones is a cheap tramp who was asking for it. I believe Kathleen Willey is a cheap tramp who was asking for it. I believe Monica Lewinsky is a cheap tramp who was asking for it.
I believe Lewinsky was fantasizing in her 20 hours of taped conversation in which she reportedly detailed her sexual relationship with the president and begged Linda Tripp to join her in lying about the relationship. I believe that any gifts, correspondence, telephone calls and the 37 post-employment White House visits that may have passed between Lewinsky and the president are evidence only of a platonic relationship; such innocent intimate friendships are quite common between middle-aged married men and young single women, and also between presidents of the United States and White House interns.
I see nothing suspicious in the report that the presidents intimate, Vernon Jordan, arranged a $ 40,000-per-year job for Lewinsky shortly after she signed but before she filed an affidavit saying she had not had sex with the president. Nor do I read anything into the fact that the ambassador to the United Nations, Bill Richardson, visited Lewinsky at the Watergate to offer her a job. I believe the instructions Lewinsky gave Tripp informing her on how to properly perjure herself in the Willey matter simply wrote themselves.
I believe that The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Newsweek, Time, U.S. News & World Report, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS and NPR are all part of a vast right-wing conspiracy. Especially NPR.
These Republicans are the ones who have passed these tax cuts that are creating an economic boom. There was no one single Democrat that voted for it.
Exactly, it boils down to COMMUNISM!
A) black clothing (for #MeToo), B) African kente ties and sashes, C) butterfly stickers (for the
dreamers), D) red buttons (for racial crimes), and, E) purple ribbons (for the opioid epidemic).
They looked like a living ad for Hobby Lobby..........
"You're in congress, you POS...start acting like a loyal American instead of a half-***** Third World boogaloo."
The black clothing is because they are still in mourning for the Hillary loss. Losers continue to be losers
Support Free Republic, Folks!
However that sorry excuse for a Congresswoman doesn’t know the meaning of loyal American.
If you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything!
This is not RNC leadership. I ask again, not what we want, not what Trump has pushed, but you, the RNC, what do you stand for, without pushing or prodding where would you take us?
The answer is down the street for a drink at their club on Capitol Hill.
Exactly. We know the nihilist policies of the dems. What is the RNC planning on enacting to provide positive change for Americans? Not Trump, not the citizens, but the RNC.
It was a bipartisan effort. I am all for calling out the Democrats, but the Republicans hold power now. It's what they want to do with it that matters, however sourpused ol' Sourpuss looks.
