Thread: The morning after the mid term elections

    It's amazing how much more I care about these midterm elections now that I have a president who gets shit that I care about done. It really didn't matter that much with either of the Bush's in office.

    Well, it isn't the end of the world. We have a more solid majority in the Senate. Maybe we are not so dependent on RINOs over there. The democrats can run around making fools of themselves for the next two years while the Senate and the President keep them in time out. This might actually be good for Trump's re-election.

    Exactly. If there's an upside it's that the GOP didn't lose as many seats in the House as the President's party usually does in the midterms. They will likely overreach and get blown out in 2020.
    In PA Wagner and Barletta got crushed as I expected. The mother f'n eastern Republican power brokers haven't figured out that our last three Republican governors and three of our last four Republican Senators all came from western PA.
    I thought if Rothfus lost it would be close but he had an uphill slog in a redrawn district with more Democrats in it plus his support of President Trump was always tepid at best going back to the Presidential primary. Keeping Trump at arm's length I don't think was a good plan.

    This short clip of Obama has it all:

    - Mocks Ebola outbreak that killed thousands
    - Mocks press for caring about Hillary's e-mails.
    - Mocks Trump for cell phone use
    - Says "a bunch of poor refugees" not a threat
    - Says Trump moving troops to border is "a political stunt"

    Tomlin is 3-5 in his last eight playoff games, 3-6 if you include the Super Bowl loss to the Packers. He has won a playoff game in just 4 of his 11 seasons, and most of those came early.

    Obama campaigned in Florida, Georgia, Texas, Missouri, and Indiana.

    And all those statewide races went RED.

    Thanks Obama!!

    Glad the shitshow is over for the time being. "Go vote! Get out and vote. Just vote so your voice is heard!" If you are going to pull the lever and not care about being heavily taxed in PA, then I have nothing else for you. We have the highest gas around thanks to Wolfe, as well, but just so they voted Blue, it doesn't matter. SMH.

    First of all straight party vote options ought to be abolished in Pa like it is in many states...

    Secondly, an 11 seat majority in the house is virtually nothing... that isn’t even assured to last past the next year really...

    Thirdly the dems won or were competitive by focusing on matching candidates to locations instead of the bland best clone candidates. This didn’t work as well on the entire state level as it did for congressional districts. It also cannot be done in a presidential race....
    The Dems are mad because this election didn’t give them an antitrump mandate and doesn’t give them a clear path to 2020

    Great news!


    Andrew Gillum Concedes to Ron DeSantis in Florida Governor’s Race


    (CNN)Republican Ron DeSantis will win the race to become Florida's 46th governor, defeating Democrat Andrew Gillum to become the state's fourth consecutive GOP chief executive.

    By outlasting Gillum, the Tallahassee mayor vying to become Florida's first African-American governor, DeSantis also gave a boost to President Donald Trump, who campaigned for the former congressman at two events in the final days before the election -- and whose endorsement DeSantis traded on to win the nomination over the establishment favorite

    For some reason the radical Libs are losing their shit again, lol



    I'm extremely disappointed...538 Exit Polls: 51% of Voters were White 45yrs +, A total 74% of The Vote was WHITE = Another Huge GOTV Failure

    Florida sucks, Kentucky sucks, Indiana sucks, Tennessee sucks! Even though Dems will get the House, I still feel like a loser, Florida and Georgia are huge disappointments

    WTF Stupid Ohio morons!!! fuckityfuckityfuckit Soooo disappointed!

    I am still in tears, I'm so disappointed in people, I'm bummed, I'll admit it. I've waited for two years for tonight, I just can't believe how many of our neighbors support what the GOP has become




    ----------------------------



    Jeff Flake - GONE!

    Bob Corker - GONE!

    John McCain - DEAD GONE!

    Never Trumper Scott Walker - GONE!

    Paul Ryan and all the Boehner Boys - GONE!

    It appeared that Pa, Michigan, Wisconsin and somewhat Iowa turned on Trump. The Dem 2020 nominee will have to be someone with strong appeal in
    those 4 states.

    And let's not forget Oprah either.

    Dem's spent a projected $2.5 billion in spending for the mid terms, far more than Republicans did.

    Walker was a 3 term incumbent, I would think that was a solid candidate.

    ELECTION WAS A DEMOCRAT DISAPPOINTMENT

    The pissed-off progressives failed.

    The lesson of Election Day is that the angry left was rejected.

    Democrats lost their three marquee races, failed in every contest where Barack Obama rallied, barely won the House and underperformed every House projection, and saw their enrollment surge mirrored and muted by a similar uptick in Republican ranks.

    And if last night was a referendum on Trump, then Trump must not be doing so bad. He had one of the smallest first-midterm House losses in modern times, and he increased his party’s control of the Senate in a significant fashion.

    And the only place the “We Hate Trump” campaign worked for Democrats was in areas where they had dramatic enrollment advantages, typically of 50% or more.

    Yes, they took control of the House of Representatives, but by an anemic and unconvincing margin.

    They needed a net gain of 23 seats. Most projections expected them to get 50. They got 27. That contrasts with net Republican gains of 63 in Obama’s first midterm and 54 in Clinton’s first midterm.

    That means, in the context of their times, Americans were more trusting of Trump and his Republicans after two years than Americans were of Obama and Clinton and their Democrats after their first two years.

    He might be, as the Democrats campaigned, the worst president ever, but he’s better than Obama and Clinton.

    Yes, Democrats won the House, but they will have a small margin, and certainly no mandate.

    And where their superstars ran, they came up empty.

    Stacey Abrams lost in Georgia, in spite of Oprah. Andrew Gillum lost in Florida, in spite of Obama. And Beto O’Rorke lost in Texas, in spite of the news media.

    And the news media got it wrong from coast to coast.

    The weeks-long characterization of the electoral dynamic was disgust with Donald Trump and an embrace of the Democratic Party. Newscast after newscast, column after column. A tidal shift was proclaimed.

    But it simply didn’t happen.

    The news media completely missed the sentiment of support for Trump, which also percolated and rose, and ended up being dead wrong in their precharacterization of the election and its outcome. Some will see that as incompetence, others will see it as complicity.

    The media saw what it always sees – support for its progressive agenda.

    The media didn’t see what it never sees – the earnest feelings of those Americans who view life differently.

    Americans who wonder if the media was reporting or advertising.

    What does Democrat control of the House mean? Chairs will be shuffled, staffers will lose jobs, investigations will be held, and Nancy Pelosi will wield the gavel.

    But a narrow margin like this makes impeachment unlikely, as not every Democrat congressperson could politically survive voting for it. Nor could every Democrat congressperson survive being a Trump obstructionist for two years. That makes compromise more likely – as Nancy Pelosi pledged last night – and that would be a good thing.

    In the other half of Congress, the increased Republican margin in the Senate primarily benefits Donald Trump.

    He has a bulwark against impeachment, should articles be reported out of the House. He also has, more practically, a big enough majority to protect himself from the saboteurs of his own party – people like Mitt Romney or Rand Paul who are of the Jeff Flake and John McCain bent, seeing a narrow Republican margin as a way to foil Trump and enhance their own self-importance.

    That margin will also make confirming judges easier – including to the Supreme Court.

    It was supposed to be the national rebuke to Trump and the Republicans, a referendum on a president everyone supposedly hated. It was supposed to be the launching pad of the next wave of Democrat giants.

    But it was none of those things.

    It was a House reversal less than half the size of that dealt Barack Obama, it was a Trump victory everywhere he rallied, it was a failure in each of the marquee races, and it was no bellwether of future elections.

    It was a much-hyped dud.

    And it ought to give the Democrats serious concerns about 2020.
