Dems look to be getting extra desperate...
« on: November 15, 2021, 01:54:54 PM »

GOP "too dangerous" to run Congress. I think it's going to get even more fun as their polling numbers continue to tank...

Not really.

They tried TRUMP! THE REPUBLICANS ARE TRUMP! ALL TRUMP ALL THE TIME! TTTTTTRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!

Worked really well for them.

This note from the DCCC appears to have learned something from that debacle. Trump isn't mentioned once in it.

Now they're just painting with the widest possible brush.

Didn't one or two of them also double down on schools deciding what is best for your children and the hell with what parents think?  I heard someone suggesting that issue was a big part of the swing in voting.

As far as the left and dems are concerned GOP = Trump.
Yes we know different but I like to think CNN & MSNBC don't tell us what to think here.

yes, McAuliffe pretty much doubled down on that, and that turned a LOT of parents against him.

But that happened in September at the last debate.

At that moment Youngkin was still a point or two behind and IIRC it had been pretty stagnant for a few weeks.

That means that McAuliffe, who had been playing the Trump card the whole race to that point, had stalled with that messaging and was, in fact, losing ground on that message. Polling after the election pretty much showed that no, people were no longer recoiling in horror at the spectre of Trump because, well, he's no longer in office...

But when Youngkin took McAuliffe's statement on parents should get no say in what their kids are taught... well, we all know how that ended up.

I hope he waste millions of Bezos/Soros/Bloomberg dollars. Not sure they'd back him at this point, though.

The next Governor race in Texas might be more interesting than I want it to be.  Gov. Abbott hasn't been bad, but he wasn't great and kept COVID restrictions around just a bit too long.  The joke is to look at what Desantis does and Abbott will do it 3 weeks later after running it through focus groups.  I hear that Allen West was thinking of running against him, but he just strikes me as Mr. Establishment and hasn't been elected to anything in years.  Not sure who else is running, but some may think Abbott is vulnerable.  Once all that is done, Beto is an after thought.  I can't see how his antics while running for President will help him here in Texas.

Maybe he thinks that despite Texas' best efforts, the Feds will enable voting by illegals in the next election . . . combined with the votes of Kali transplants, that might be a problem for the Lone Star State.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

No real reason to expect that the Democrat vote fraud machine will be any less effective for the mid-terms.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

"But there's no proof of voter fraud."

To which I apply the following logic

There is no proof without evidence.
There is no evidence without investigation.
There is no investigation without suspicion.
But suspicion without proof is paranoid.

So much for the suspicion.  Accusation of "paranoia" is a very effective way of stifling things. They sure wrapped that up in a nice little package.

Biden using the "party of 'No' " line to dig at Republicans for 2022. The same guy who said "no" by reversing everything Republicans did from 2016-2020 with the most EOs in the history of EOs.

Quote
"I want to tell my Republican friends: Get ready, pal. Youre in for a problem," Biden said, explaining that Republicans are "against everything" and challenging the crowd to name something the GOP is "for."

Also, he's "The perfect President".

I also notice these things were said at a ginormous holiday party while they are still telling regular people to avoid holiday gatherings.

There is no proof without evidence.
There is no evidence without investigation.

But suspicion without proof is paranoid.
Voter fraud? Definitely.
Massive fraud that should have invalidated results? Still waiting on that evidence.
There have been investigations and audits though.

That moving to another country thing has been going on for a long time. They never seem to do it. Either they must be figuring out that the grass isnt any greener or discovering it isnt that easy to emigrate to another country. Most countries are much more strict about immigration than the US is, even most of the shithole ones.

I hate to get my hopes up but it appears things are shifting hard in the R's favor.
What worriers me though is what the dems could do in the meantime as a scorched earth policy.

The Republicans will probably win a bunch of seats.  They will proceed to do nothing conservative, just like they have done every other time this has happened in my recollection.

I have been told Newt Gingrich's congress was different, but I can't recall that.

I don't know how much different it was.  Mainly it was the last Congress that came real close to balancing the budget.  Then the media placed a giant target on his back and did negative stories day after day.  The Republicans did like they always do and thought getting rid of Newt would make the media be friends with them again.  Newt was not perfect, but he was better than a lot of others.  Of course, we also had Dick Armey and Phil Graham and a host of others in leadership positions, many of which retired around 2000.  Through the 2000's, the Republicans sort of abandoned the "Limited Govt" principle completely.
