It never seemed that the Republicans in Congress of the Senate came alongside of Moore, so to pile up on Bannon is poor sportsmanship. He was the only guy who put his neck on the line. Even Donald Trump never publicly came out in strong support of Moore. He was at it pretty much all alone.
I PROUDLY stand with Steve Bannon!
You think just maybe there is a reason Trump didnt do that??? seriously? I suspect he knew Strange was a safe bet and Crazy Roy would be a huge risk... he was right as usual.
This was a battle between McConnell and Bannon, and McConnell is the one doing the happy dance this morning.
Moore ran against McConnell, et. al. both in the Primary and the General. The McConnell Republicans stayed home in the General.
Don’t blame Trump for not jumping the shark - we put him in a precarious position when we told him he was wrong and Moore needed to be the candidate - if we had sent as much money as was spent against him he would be the new Senator but I’d wager maybe 2% of his “supporters” actually did more than talk him up.
“It never seemed that the Republicans in Congress of the Senate came alongside of Moore,”
Worse. They sabotaged Moore blatantly. Deep-state GOP and Shelby. “By any means necessary” take down Trump, even if it means losing our country — which it does. The depth of hatred can only be Satanic, as there’s no amount of logic that can explain it.
Putting Sessions in the AG job is a lose-lose for us. He isn’t DOING his job, and it opened up a Senate seat the GOPe gave to the ‘Rats.
Let’s face it ... Bannon backed an awful candidate here.
Poor sportsmanship is what politics is all about.
Bannon is a fool.
But when Mitch and Donald decided to back Luther Strange rather than Mo Brooks they set this all in motion.
Mo Brooks, with Trump’s backing would have won the primary and carried the state by 25 points. When they backed Strange instead, it split the sane vote and opened up a path for the insane Roy Moore.
Jones didn’t win this.
The media won it. Washington Post specifically. And their teammates who then piled on. The third rail is running our country. They are not the lapdogs of the Democrats.
The Democrats are the media’s lapdogs.
And they together will only intensify their efforts until they have eliminated Trump one way or another.
However long Trump lasts, I dread the days when his time is finished. We will see Obama x10, and our republic will be toast. As will our freedoms and the constitution.
I don’t read articles that start with the nonsense that these claims were carefully vetted.
