Get ready for another sellout

We have laughed at AOC's proposals of Medicare for All, free college tuition, regulating cowfarts, and grounding air travel, but if the Supreme Court allows the theft of the presidency, her program is the Democrat program.

Republicans may hold the Senate, depending on how many ballots Democrats can stuff in Georgia's senatorial elections on January 5.

Would Republicans go along to get along with Democrats? They have ever since the election of Grover Cleveland in 1884. Until 2016, the only time a Republican Senate was asked to confirm a Democrat president's Supreme Court nominee was in 1949 when senators voted 48-16 to confirm Sherman Minton.

In 2016, to their credit, Republicans issued a pocket rejection of Obama's nominee.

Democrat Senates demand blood from Republican senators. For every Clarence Thomas confirmed, there must be a David Souter.

Will Republicans demand the same if Breyer and Roberts retire this summer?

And will Republicans slow-walk Biden's Cabinet appointees and the like, as the Senate did President Donald John Trump?

If Biden were to write-off a trillion dollars in money paid to colleges and universities, what price would a Republican Senate exact?

We saw what they did on the Iran deal.

Nothing.

We saw how they failed to repeal Obamacare.

We saw how they failed to investigate Hunter Biden's wheeling and dealing.

Democrats had lions of the Senate -- Kennedy, Byrd and LBJ.

Republicans have cowardly lions who are always willing to sell out their voters to make a deal.

  1. Surely not! The republican party has been so good over the years -- NOT.

  2. They don't call it THE STUPID PARTY for nothing.

    It's all Kabuki Theater any way. That's why they hate Trump. He exposed all the rats.

    1. True, that; small quibble: VSG POTUS DJT allowed rats to unmask and expose themselves. Very cool! 30,088.90▲ 497.63

  3. As for the Iran deal, remember, they flipped the Treaty Clause on its head: instead of a 2/3 vote of members present to RATIFY they said 2/3 of members present to REJECT.

    Shameful.

    1. Right. Doing nothing would have been an improvement over what they actually did. They actually aided and abetted the Iran deal.

  4. Until President Trump, Republican spinelessness went all the way to the top. Bush II gave us the largest welfare program since LBJ’s “Great Society” — Medicare Part D. He wanted to “reach across the aisle” and “cooperate” with Democrats to earn their appreciation. He thus ushered in 12 years of Obama.

      Who ushered in Trump. I bet that eats at B II, so much, he can't stand it. Obumbles he can live with, as they are 2 peas in a pod. But the vulgar Trump? No way.

  6. Frankly, the GOP should have come up with its own student loan forgiveness plan. The Dems were going to do it anyway (and win the eternal gratitude of millions), so the Republicans could have at least demanded that the colleges and universities kick in part of the cost. Now they will simply wipe the slate clean and academia will walk away scot free.

    1. Coming up with Leftie Lite policies has been part of the problem.

      Republicans know what principles are, but only so they can appeal to them while stabbing you in the back.

    2. No student is entitled to a student loan forgiveness plan.

      I knew what I was getting into when I signed the papers, and they should have known, too. I paid mine back in 10 years.

      Stop whining and give me fries with that.

  7. Senators might start out at fire-breathing conservatives but Cocaine Mitch makes it clear that he runs the show for the GOP and he's a card-carrying RINO at heart. I'm completely surprised that he understood what the 2014 election meant when he got the bare majority in that body and blocked Merrick Garland's nomination in 2016.

  8. If we loose now we loose forever. There is no other option. We are so far left that all that can be accomplished is postponing the inevitable. It's been a good 244 years.
    Won't anybody help us?
    What are we running for?
    When there's no where, no where we can run to anymore

    We can't afford to be innocent
    Stand up and face the enemy
    It's a do or die situation
    We'll be invincible.

    1. 75 million Trump voters say, "It's not over till we say it's over."

      Biden does not have a mandate. The Dems barely hold the House (and if the GOP wins the last three seats in contention, and can flip just 5 Dems, they can stop anything Pelosi wants -- if they can stick together). And they're not going to take the Senate.

      Buck up, man. Did we quit when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

      Yeah. I'm on a roll.

  9. This is about way more than the "GOP"...

    Many moons ago, I took a job at a large industrial company. Back then, it was what you did with a fresh STEM degree - go work at a big, stable organization, at least for a few years to get your feet wet, plus with the stability you will get a chance to work on some longer-term projects rather than just fight fires (yes, we really used to think that way!).

    Problem was that the company had been a very clear market leader for a lengthy period of time - great margins, gushers of cash, etc., etc. Much of the largesse when into the building of a massive managerial/administrative/bureaucratic apparatus - which at one point employed more than a quarter (!) of the firm's employees.

    Unfortunately, the salad days were winding down - technological change, competition, etc., were eroding market share and margins - and the cash flow that had supported "the apparatus" was disappearing.

    So what happened? The "apparatus" blamed the people doing real work as being the problem - that it was OUR fault that the market share and margins had eroded. As someone I worked with put it at the time, "We've been carrying this huge monkey on our backs for years - and now that we can't carry it anymore and are collapsing under its weight, the monkey is whipping us for this state of affairs."

    I'll stop there. Let's just say that the story didn't end well for "the apparatus."

    We've got a similar problem. The problem is not the GOP - it's the monster apparatus in Washington that has become a huge parasite. We can't host it anymore, so it is screaming at us and telling us that WE are the problem. The problem is THEM - the whole DC apparatus.

    We need to destroy it. Lets focus on how we do that (rather than on smallball insider politics like we've had for the past 60 years).

    1. I believe the uniparty is going to help Trump make that happen Snow. Like the Germans at Stalingrad, it is full steam ahead, right into the trap, by certifying the massive fraudulent election. Pennsylvania decided to join Michigan. Problem for them, is they both voted to certify fraud. A federal crime.

      I don't believe Alito is going to like what those idiots did.

  12. Trump won a close election with a popular vote minority in 2016. In 2020, he ran almost exactly the same strategy, which the Dems anticipated, and lost a close election trying to win exactly the same states. Nobody's asking questions about this. Rather than mourn the dead kraken, why not try to figure out what went wrong and how we can fight going forward?

    1. What went wrong was massive vote fraud on a scale not seen before in this country, and the use of Dominion voting machines which were designed to flip votes for Hugo Chavez.

    2. Agreed. The Republipukes put their arm around you and look for a soft spot to knife you in the back. The Communist Democrats shoot you in the face. The Pukes are spineless morons, the CD's are dangerous. The fight goes on!

    1. We need to warn Trump to leave DC for about 2 days. As soon as his helicopter is 5 miles away, detonate a small tactical Neutron bomb on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

  15. I object, Don. Grover Cleveland was the last honest Democratic president. He was a good president, maybe even a great one. DJT is very Clevelandian.
