I’m having a rather difficult time trying to figure out exactly what Democrat sleazebag James Carville might be up to. And that’s only because it would seem to be Jimmy’s opinion that the Democrats face an uphill battle if they want to win back control of the Senate in 2018. He said so just this past Saturday. Now I am in no way someone one could ever consider a political genius but I gotta tell ya I’m thinking that Jimmy might be trying a little reverse psychology here. Because unless there is a change in Republican behavior, that would have to be near Biblical proportions, there’s not a snowball’s chance in Hell that come January 2019 that McConnell will still be the Senate’s majority leader. So I’m not sure if Jimmy is just messing with McConnell’s head, or if he actually believes what he’s saying.
Jimmy told John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York, “I think right now most Democrats are trying to focus on the 2018 elections and trying to recruit people and keep incumbents, and you know I would say we have a pretty good chance of taking the House back. The Senate is very, very difficult.” Jimmy went on to say, “The problem in the Senate is we have a large number of seats we have to hold in states that Donald Trump carried. Indiana, Missouri, you know, places like that we have to hold seats.” Jimmy remained doubtful that Democrats would be able to pick up new seats typically in Republican strongholds. Now again, while I am no political genius, the Republican majority has been nothing more than a great disappointment to those of us who believed the promises and put them in charge.
And yet Jimmy said, “The only places where we have an opportunity for pick up are, you know, Nevada is pretty good. After that Arizona is less good, then you’re down to Texas and Alabama, and for Democrats to win the Senate back, they have to pick up three seats.” Jimmy’s comments come as Senate Republicans prepare to deliver a healthcare bill that they ‘claim’ will replace Obamacare, in keeping with what they promised their constituents. But rumors abound that it does no such thing, not even close. President Trump said that “we are very, very close” to dismantling Obamacare in his weekly address Friday, but the Senate will not vote on the bill until next week after Sen. John ‘The RINO’ McCain recovers from his recent surgery.
And on the subject of Obamacare, Jimmy also seems to think that the Senate Republican plan to replace it will only backfire on them. He said, “Anybody that moves to change healthcare loses.” Actually what’s going to backfire on the Republicans is if they decide to put the needs of those in search of free healthcare, or those who don’t vote for them, above the needs of those getting ripped off courtesy of exorbitant deductibles and skyrocketing premiums. These folks do tend to vote for them. Republicans have been promising for the last seven years that they would repeal this ‘obamanation’. Now it would seem that they are bending over backwards to do everything but to repeal it. If the current batch of Republicans refuse to repeal it, then maybe we need to elect a new batch who will!
And on the subject of who it is that is now leading the party, it was when Jimmy was asked to name a standout leader in the Democrat Party that the veteran political hack responded by saying that there is currently “no one” who is leading the party. He said, “If a party is out of power and we don’t have a presidential candidate, there is no one going to be in charge until sometime in 2020 when we choose a presidential candidate.” So I guess we’re expected to believe that for the next two years, or so, the Democrat Party will essentially have no one in charge of the party? It would seem to me that that might create a vacuum, of sorts, which could result in the party being dragged even further to the radical left. But hey, what do I know?
And it would also seem to me, as someone looking from the outside in, that perhaps if the Democrat Party were to put a bit more of their energy behind things the voters actually cared about instead of refusing to move beyond the last election and promoting an idiotic hoax, they wouldn’t be struggling like they are . But even with that said, when you factor in RINOS like McCain, McConnell, Graham, Collins, Barrasso, Blunt, Cornyn and Thune, I think you could safely make the point that the Democrats already have a majority in the Senate and a fairly strong one! This is the REAL reason Trump can’t get a repeal bill out of the Senate, OR, for that matter, any other Trump inspired campaign promise! What difference does party affiliation make when you defer to the Democrats anyway?
Beyond that, I must say that I’m a bit baffled by how it is that Jimmy thinks that the Democrats may have “a pretty good chance of taking the House back?” The current breakdown is 240-194, with one vacancy (Chaffetz’s). And given the Democrats’ current losing streak with regard to special elections, does he really expect the Democrats to be able to flip 47 seats? Now it would seem to me that spending money in the attempt to get Democrats elected seems to pretty closely resemble pouring millions of dollars into an empty well, then dropping a napalm bomb down the hole. Look at how much they spent in the last 4 special election efforts without getting anyone elected. And the very best part is, they have absolutely no idea what went wrong. Amazing!
And what I find so frustrating is the fact that whether or not the Democrats actually have control of the Senate, or the House for that matter, going strictly by the numbers, it’s seems that they are always able to move things in the direction they wish them to go. Because there are always more than enough RINOs who can continually be counted upon to do everything within their power to provide the necessary support the Democrats need. And it’s these RINOs who seem to have no problem whatsoever with the Democrats current efforts to try to tarnish the Republican brand so that when Democrats once again assume control, they will likely remain in control for perhaps decades. And that’s, apparently, just fine with these RINOs.
So it’s the voters who are likely going to be required to take matters into their own hands if the Republicans refuse to follow through on their promises they made for 7 years to repeal Obamacare, voting to do so dozens of times when they knew that Obummer would sign it, or their promises to end Obummer’s amnesty for illegals or to secure the border or to building ‘The Wall.’ And the fault for not having yet repealed Obamacare or not yet begun construction on ‘The Wall’, must not lie with President Trump, but with the RINOs in Congress who insist upon allying themselves with the likes of Chuckie Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. In other words, those are the ones who we must focus on replacing come 2018! And not with Democrats!
It has been said that if the Republicans continue to refuse to follow through with the promises that resulted in them now having control of the House, the Senate and the White House, they will see a bloodbath in the 2018 and 2020 elections. However if voters were smart, which we all know, and with some degree of certainty, is most certainly not the case, what they would seek to do is to replace every single RINO they can, not with a Democrat but with another more conservative Republican. And then whatever Republican failed to live up to the promises made, then the next time around he or she would be replaced with yet another Republican until we got it right. We should NEVER elect another Democrat to any public office, especially at the federal level.
In order to make any progress, the Democrats would have to admit that they’ve gotten so many things, so very wrong. But there is not a single leading Democrat with the courage or to take that step or to own up to the mistakes that lost them the working class vote. It is simply not going to happen; such an admission would be met with screeching outrage from the fringe elements that now control the party. The Democrats are in purgatory; and it is indeed an uphill battle to escape it. Meanwhile on the other end of the political spectrum, the ‘NeverTrumper’ Republicans need to consider how they will adjust their politics to effectively deliver, and to embrace this gift that they have been given. The GOP has been graced with the heart and soul of mainstream working America, business and the poor. They can do it, but will they?
And if this was a perfect world our two political parties would be competing for better ways to uphold the Constitution, or how best to defend our country from foreign invasion, or to protect property rights and competing to defend the God given rights of the sovereign individual. Period. Sadly, the Democrat Party has morphed into the party of nihilists, communists and the confused gender. They have arrived at the edge of the cliff and still won’t knowledge their true name: The anti-America party. And yet the Republicans refuse to take advantage of their current majorities and to give the Democrats that final nudge over the edge. The opportunity that was presented to the Republicans may be a long time on coming again. And yet they behave like a bunch of gutless wonders.
The simple truth is that there are too many liberals and progressives in the Republican Party, these are the RINOs. The Democrats will take us as far to the left as they think they can, and sadly there are far too many Republicans who tend to be even further to the left than some of the Democrats. Only 86 out of 292 republicans can be called conservative with a “C” (70%) or better at www.conservativereview.com. The rest are too liberal to pass legislation to repeal the Obamacare disaster. McConnell isn’t a strong enough leader, actually he’s not much of a leader at all, and is unwilling to do anything close to what he promised he would do. McConnell, like Ryan and Boehner before him, has been nothing short of a complete disaster.
So remember, 2018 is coming, if your congressperson is more of a liberal than he or she is a conservative then find a conservative to run against them in a primary contest. Do that instead of supporting the Democrat in any eventual contest! The goal here should always be the formation of a conservative majority NOT to simply give up and stay home on Election Day or, worse, to start supporting the Democrats. And if at first we don’t succeed, then we look toward the next election and keep trying until we get it right. That’s really the only option we have if we’re serious about wanting to save our country for our kids. It has taken a long time to get us into this position, due primarily to neglect, but we can still work our way out of this mess by voting for the right representation.
