Stupid Right-Wing Tweets: Jack Welch Edition

The Lightbulb Guy might want to get an encyclopedia of logical fallacies out and look up false equivalence. First, I don't remember Democrats refusing vote on George W.

Third, any third grader could look at a chart of cloture votes and see the difference.
