MID-TERM ELECTIONS
#61
I was unfamiliar with Amy Klobuchar prior to the Kavanaugh hearings.

After watching and listening to her in such a tense and high pressure environment, I got the same impression MS.

She seems genuinely relatable and compassionate from within. It stood out to me in a setting packed with other politicians.

I’m not sure she has presidential aspirations. But her name is coming up a lot from pundits and in comments sections.

Seems she’s made a favorable impression on a lot of people over the last few weeks.

I didn’t vote for her the first time she ran for the Senate (back when I was like a lot of folks these days, and it was all about partisanship, instead of looking at an individual and their merits).

She beat a Republican named Mark Kennedy and it was a narrow margin of victory.

6 years later, when she was up for re-election she stomped her opponent, and I believe it was a nearly 70%-30% type of victory, meaning, many Republicans crossed the ‘line’ to vote for her, including me.

I don’t know if she has those aspirations either, but I think she’d be a good candidate.

She’s not ‘dynamic’ and that’s probably her one major shortcoming.

If you would stop pissing Duchess off maybe she would start doing Friday Boob threads again. You need to lick her feet.
You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.

I took care of her.

She was as fired up as I was.

It seems like the Republican outrage over Kavanaugh's confirmation being delayed has died down now that he's confirmed, according to voter enthusiasm polls.

So, President Trump is attempting to rile up the base ahead of the mid-terms with claims that Democrats are lawless, Democratic protesters are angry and dangerous mobs, Democrats are "Dims"...

That might get some hard-core Trump loyalists enthusiastic about voting, but I don't think it will have a big impact. I don't think Trump's other rally talking point, "Democrats don't know how to govern", will hit home with many people either.

It's common knowledge that........President Obama managed to get the country out of the great recession brought on during the W. Bush administration and left office with a low and declining unemployment rate. And, the last time there was a balanced budget in our country was under Democratic president Bill Clinton.

Meanwhile, though Trump has managed to maintain (and likely improved upon) the positive economic trends inherited from Obama, the Republicans under Trump have increased the national deficit by more than any other administration/party in a two year period and the sting from trade war tariffs is hitting the Midwest.

I read tonight that the Republicans are going to try to use immigration to gin up enthusiasm. The Republican House is expected to draft a bill for over $20 billion to 'build that wall" this week.

While there is no chance there's even enough Republican support for it to get passed, the Republican strategists plan to use it in ad messaging in hopes that it will drive the base to the polls. https://thehill.com/homenews/house/41072...order-wall

Yeah, jump on that bandwagon Biggie. There's no charade and I don't care whether you or anyone else considers me "impartial" or not.  I'm not a referee or a judge in a competition.

And, I'm not going to change the facts or my opinion of the facts to please people who are offended by them.

The Republicans have known for months that they're likely to lose the House in November, it's not a secret.  The President's party usually loses Congressional seats, especially when the President's approval rating is comparatively low and the opposing party is riled up.  

Ryan and McConnell's acknowledgement of that fact and Republican strategies to try to deal with it have already been reported.   The Republicans need to pour big money into the races, hammer the Democrats, and play on core/base issues to maximize their chances of maintaining majorities in both the House and the Senate.

I don't think the pre-confirmation Kavanaugh outrage is going to help the Republicans much because they won that battle.

The Democrats seem more riled up about his confirmation than the Republicans are riled up about the circumstances surrounding the short delay in his confirmation as the midterms approach.

Characterizing Democrats as a mob keeps the flame burning and fires up more Democrats than it does Republicans, in my opinion.

That doesn't mean that the Republicans won't hold both Houses. We've not had a President who does frequent televised midterm campaign rallies, to the best of my knowledge. That could be a benefit to the Republicans.

And, if the Democrats don't do a better job than usual turning enthusiasm into votes and the Republicans don't do a worse job getting the vote out, the Republicans might well maintain control of the full Congress.

Anyway, I think the Democrats are likely to take the House, but not the Senate. But, I wouldn't bet money on it.

If HoTD doesn't agree with you politically you better humour her snowflake mentality or she will smear you for no good reason, like every other indoctrinated SJW. Liar and Slimeball.

The next 26 days will fly by and hopefully you'll be totally insufferable thereafter.  Smiley_emoticons_smile

I'm helping two clients and one of their friends (all in their 80s) get to City Hall to vote on Tuesday.  Early voting started here this week.

I admire that they still get out and do it even though it's a challenge physically.  Cool old broads.
