It is my birthday today, so I get to post the live thread. :)
Some places to watch:
Politico SenateReal Clear Politics
Finally, the turd Nelson concedes defeats to Scott. Another dem senator officially toasted
I am afraid to look...
will the Rs hold the state house and senate?
Like Florida’s ‘diverse’ state Texas too is continuing that direction. Republicans are not the best at selecting good candidate that appeal to these groups.. Need to up their game alot in that respect.
CA-7 (Ami Bera, rat) looks like we’ll lose that by only 5.
Not enough in for the other Cali seats.
In GA I think we keep 6 and 7 is gone. 7...biggest upset, not on my radar at all till I saw some jerk tweet about it at 6:00.
Congressional investigations are worthless. All they accomplished was a chance for the politicians to get TV time, and filler material for the TV pundits.
All the "good stuff" that came out about FISA, the FBI corruption etc. was produced by the IG (like the Strzok-Page messages) or via FOIA requests or individuals such as Julian Assange (Wikileaks) or a certain anonymous cat with one-letter name.
If there is going to be any real action it will come out of the DoJ or Mueller (who is also controlled by DoJ).
As another example of futility, Hillary used her Benghazi hearing as a foundation piece in her Presidential run. It helped her immensely because she was able to face a toothless committee, half of whom were her defense lawyers.
It is too bad we couldn't get the wall before losing the House, but really, a lot of Republicans never had any intention of building the wall. It might still get done as part of a Trump-led negotiation, or it might be an issue for 2020 which once again POTUS owns.
I hate it that we lost the House, but I trust POTUS to handle it masterfully.
Works for me!
I usually place most of the blame on the voters, or the candidate, party leadership is maybe third.
It wouldn't have been near as close if Ted hadn't waited til the last month to get in the race.
“Yes, the Democrats have to be very nervous the next two years about another SC slot opening up.”
Right. The MSM will tout the dems taking back the house and make it looks like a massive defeat for Trump. However the dems will not get any of their leftist legislation passed. Meanwhile Trump will sign EOs and get conservative judges in place.
Yes indeed. I will take your optimism in tow and try to remember your points.
at this point..
For the next SCOTUS seat..
Trump should go off the list.
someone the democrats have not had years to dig up or fabricate dirt on.
Who wants to be a political savant?
“Why is it that all Democrat men look like queers?”
(a) because they are .... (b) because they are
(c) because they are .... (d) because they are
Want me to eliminate two?
Funding for wall by end of year...no more excuses.
“But we know Mad Maxine will be pushing for impeachment”
The state House went Dem.
Many GOP incumbents knocked off in the 2nd and 3rd CD’s.
It does appear as though we’ll win the special election for the Senate.
we are really in bad shape. I just heard analysis on Fox. And have read it for two years. Hispanic voters changing conservative districts. The dems will not fund anti-illegal border control measures. The wave will continue to some degree. Texas may go dem with the ongoing flow of illegals and the libs moving in. Florida will go dem gradually. CAL and NY will never go repub.
“What is the over under bet for sessions out by dec 1st”
Hopefully, that rat bastard is gone tomorrow.
Mia Love was such a rising star at the GOP Convention...what happened?
I believe she allowed RINO’s like Ryan, Cantor, and GOPe appeasers to corrupt her to the ways of the establishment/RINO dark side!
