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...

Didn't they tried that tack in Virginia?

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.
