GOP hopes Alabama loss is wakeup call for Trump White House
Associated Press ^ | Dec 13, 2017 8:01 PM EST | Zeke Miller

President Donald Trump managed to endorse two different losing candidates in the same Senate race, a setback that is highlighting an experience deficit within the White House political team. […]

Republicans in Washington and around the country say a bungled approach to the race — in which the president wagered his party’s moral authority with nothing to show for it — should serve as a wakeup call for the administration going into what is sure to be a challenging midterm election year.

“This White House is not working on all cylinders,” said Ari Fleischer, who served as press secretary to former President George W. Bush. …

The rest of this screed cites more Bush-era insiders and implies they should go into Trump’s administration.

This should be a real wake-up call to just how many establishment reprobates are in the Republican Party.

This is written by the “MLK bust was removed from oval office” fake news liar. Zeke Miller is full of it as always.

Trump supported Luther Strange, he has not been asleep. The people who backed a creepy, polarizing ideologue might study the lessons of the 20@6 election though.

Back stabbers. They let us down at the worst moment. What will the loss do to Susan Collins demands?

Shut up GOP. We don't fall for this line of thinking anymore.

You are the ones who decided you wanted a another Democrat in the Senate. You love being in the minority...perfect spot for men with no spine or courage.

Losers, all of you.

The GOPe just sealed their fate IMO.

Hopes to get Trump to work with them, when they refused all year to work with him, to the point of conceding a Senate seat to the Democrats, the gloves are off.

I want a plan to convert the membership of the Republican party to a new party, without a single current leader from the current Republican party in it.

Within one year and concluding in six years I want all GOPe Republicans to be out of government offices, and on their own living outside the beltway.

They will no longer be working for us.

This election was an anomaly.

It had nothing at all to do with President Trump who is by and large respected and liked by the blue collar and rural folks here in Alabama.

We knew Luther had to go because he was dirty. He buried a criminal investigation into a sitting governor in exchange for Sessions senate seat.

The sad thing is, all Luther Strange had to do was his job, and he’d be the hero of Alabama right now.

Kay Ivey moved the special election up to draw Roy Moore out and keep him from running against her for governor.

It’s just a totally weird situation that brought us here and it had nothing to do with Trump.

People would have voted against Luther even if the Virgin Mary had asked them not to.

If they liked him so much, why did they humiliate him twice? The voters of Alabama can go pi$$ up a rope. They deserve everything they’ve got coming to them.
