It will be a while before we get to Live Tweet a political debate, so we can let that season wash over us. Or take a shower. Whatever works for you.
But my question is, what is with the media and politicians getting their dresses over their heads about Donald Trump saying we’ll have to see if he accepts the election results — and that if he doesn’t it’s “unAmerican”?
Oh yeah? OK, then how about this person who is only…the Senate Minority Leader!:
However, when Reid cited the 2000 election between George W. Bush and then-Vice President Al Gore, he said he did not believe the Supreme Court’s final decision.
“Everyone knows I wasn’t a supporter of George Bush the second. I was a close personal friend, still am, of Al Gore. He got 600,000 more votes than Bush. We believe he won in Florida.”
He is saying the exact thing, that Hillary and others are saying is so outrageous. And he’s not just a sitting Senator, but the Senior most Democrat in Congress!
And here’s a question: What if a warehouse of votes gets torched in a swing county in Pennsylvania? Or what if the FBI discovers a hack of a Florida voting system? Or what if the Democrats decide they don’t like the way a ballot was put together in Colorado?
To say Trump is in-artful, is of course an understatement. But the idea that the voting can’t get screwed up is to somehow ignore the history of the system as recently as 16 years ago, when Al Gore got “snippy” at George W. Bush.
After yesterday’s 2nd District Congressional debate, the person Brad Ashford twice voted for Speaker of the House claimed that the Founders’ concept of “Checks and Balances” in the American system of government is “code for obstruction”.
So Nancy Pelosi, Ashford’s choice for Speaker thinks, as National Review’s David French put it, that America is electing a Queen.
Once again, this is getting to the theme of, if Hillary is considered the slam dunk favorite to win the election, what sort of Congress do the people want? One that will let Hillary and Pelosi’s vision of America slide through?
Or should there be vigorous debate before letting a bill become a law, “so that you can find out what is in it”?
This is what’s at stake 2nd District voters.
Ah, the local Democrats…
They had ONE job!
The Democrats have ONE close race for state Legislature where a Dem is pitted against a Dem. And what do they do, but trip all over themselves to call the other corrupt.
Here is the literature put out by the campaign to elect John Synowiecki in South Omaha’s District 7:
So, because of that, the Douglas County Democrats decided to leave his name off their ballot mail drop, and to include ONLY that of Tony Vargas. They left one of their own candidates off!
Naturally, Labor leaders, backing Synowiecki are freaking out at the party officials — who are now pointing to a divide between Labor and Latinos. In the mean time, it looks like there may have been an actual vote to decide to keep Synowiecki’s name off, simply because of a comparative mailer.
And Vince Powers and Jane Kleeb are sitting back ignorant of the situation because neither apparently owns a cell phone or an email account to have been in touch with party officials who would have made the decision.
But hey Democrats, these are the leaders you have chosen to run things at the granular level.
Because that’s the way to do it.
