What Blue Wave?

You know, I keep hearing how the Democrats are poised to take over the House of Representatives, primarily so they can impeach Donald Trump, and take over the Senate, so they can deny him any further nominees in the Supreme Court. Both ideas are really stupid if you think of it. First of all, let’s examine quickly, what would happen if both of those instances did indeed happen.

If the Dems took over the House and impeached Trump, it would lead to the same problem the Republicans had when they impeached Bill Clinton back in the 90’s. There is no way there would be a conviction, so the whole thing would be a waste of time and nothing would get accomplished. And, if what happened to Clinton happens to Trump, his popularity would rise. Stupid idea. It was with the GOP back then, it would be with the Dems today.

Second, if the Dems took over the Senate, and tried to deny Trump Supreme Court nominees, and there could be at least two more in the near future, it would lead to them actually losing the Senate. The American people believe that the president has the right to nominate whomever he or she wants to the high court. To deny them that opportunity without good reason is unconstitutional. I know the Senate has to give “advice and consent” on the nominations, but if they make it a political issue only, afraid that they’ll have Roe v. Wade overturned, it would lead to a backlash. Again, not a smart move.

Now, on to the topic at hand. Blue Wave? Doubtful. First of all, the Dem’s are just hoping that there’s this Blue Wave because most of the time a new president takes office, there is about a 15 seat swing in the opposing direction two years later. That has had a couple of times that hasn’t happened. In 2002, George W. Bush actually gained seats in the House, and I think the other time was during Clinton’s time in office. Beyond that, you’ve got to go back to 1934 and FDR to see it again…so history certainly would be on the side of the Democrats. But this isn’t what I would call historically “typical times”.

Democrats are moving very far to the left. While that excites some folks, it really doesn’t excite the Dem’s base. Those are the folks that go out and vote. And the same thing that happened to the Republicans after the Tea Party won a bunch of primaries is going to happen here. They are left enough to win a primary, and too far left to win a general election. Democrats never seem to learn.

The also never seem to change their playbook. Hatred and bigotry seem to be the whole mantra. They are angry with themselves because they didn’t get the turnout to beat Trump in 2016, and now they are blaming it on him. How stupid is that? When the populace sense that things are being done for purely political motives (as this is), they have a tendency to back away. That will happen in November as well.

Take my word for it…Democrats are talking a big game now. They were talking a big game on election day in 2016 as well. And we all know how that turned out…don’t we?

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. Well Cactus, you and I have been going around on this Blue Wave thing since early last year. Trouble is that you and your unwashed masses are not seeing the handwriting on the wall. Now will there be this Blue Wave? Actually I am not sure, but I do know the Republicans cans are in deep trouble. Even that learning impaired Paul Revere from California, Devin “Midnight Run” Nunes says that the GOP must hold on to Congress to protect Trump.

    The biggest problem is in spite of Orange Boy endorsing people in the primaries, he has no coattails as they say. Special elections have shown his unpopularity. Even that dipshit Congresswoman we have, Debbie Leuko is scared. Saw her on PBS last Friday. She won Sun City by 3 points where Trump carried by much much more and she carried Peoria, where she lives by 2 points in a district the Rumpster carried by 17 points. Had the Democrats , national Democrats done more for Dr. Hiram, Leuko would have had her patoo handed to her. As Jon Snow said, winter is coming.

    Asa for impeachment, bad idea as we would end with an even bigger idiot, Mike “ Christian Sharia law is my game in this Christian nation.” Personally I would hold endless Congressional hearing on all of the rumpste’s team including those shadow clowns of the VA from Hollywierd or know as the Mar-a-lago group. Basically go whole Trey Goudy on the Rethugs. Let Mueller do his job while crazy uncle RudyGuiliani and Jesus’ personal attorney, Jay Sekulow hyperventilate over the investigation. For the clueless out there, the Mueller investigation according to their marching orders is to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election. No mention of collusion. Shows what a bunch of clowns tRump and his band of merry grifters are.

    Rick gray is a wanker and thinks his constituents are idiots. Will discuss this face to face along with the DEep Right Wing State to remake the country for white honkies.

    Facts are not biased.

  2. What exactly results are those? The Republicans are committing suicide in Kansas, the Crubile of conservatism and bankrupt. The Ohio primary I for that Congressional District is still too close to call and mystery ballots keep surfacing like Kaka. M<ost of the elections were primaries which if you are talking about Rumpster’s endorsements, let’s see what happens in November.

    Just for the record so I can embarrass you later with your own words, what happens if there is a Blue Wave in November? You Republicans going to blame it on what?

    Just asking.

    Currently out of town so not keeping up on things I normally do.

    1. Mystery ballots? Like the ones Al Gore used in Florida? Or the ones JFK used in Chicago? You’ve got the wrong party using “mystery ballots” my friend. That’s from the left’s playbook. And as we all know, they never change a play in their playbook.

  3. Sorry dude, the Republicans have become the party of voter suppression and election funny business. Do you not read the papers, watch the news of several stations or are you an ostrich?

    1. What is “suppression” about only wanting citizens to vote? Since when does it become legal at any level to allow anyone that shows up at a polling place to vote? You really need to do your homework! And yes…I read the newspapers, and watch the news stations. Oh… have you even heard of the NYT making up news? Of course not.
