People need to realize that things aren’t as tight and peachy in the Democratic Party as people might think.
Sure, they are carrying on with a positive image right now but in reality, they are starting to sharpen knives against each other.
Heck, half of them are looking for ways to get Pelosi out of her spot.
My Father used to always tell me ‘ you know you are in trouble when you start believing your own BS.’ Well, that is exactly what happened to the Democrats this election cycle. they bought into the gaslighting polls saying sleepy Joe was up by double digits. They bought into the idea that Americans embraced their communist, big brother government ideas.
It turns out that Americans are not as interested in being their subjects after all. Their court packing dreams are going down the drain without control of the Senate … and all their threats about revenge are about to come back to haunt them … bigly.
Things may not be clear sailing for Democrats no matter who wins the Oval Office. Before the election, Pelosi and other Democrats claimed they would win between 5 and 10 additional seats in the House. As Robert Burns once said:
“The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men, Gang aft agley. “
Burns wrote his poetry in Gaelic. You might know the expression better as “The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray” That is exactly what happened to the Democrats and could end with Pelosi being bounced as Speaker of the House. In fact, you are liable to see the entire leadership in the House get replaced.
Instead of winning 5 to 10 seats, it now appears they will lose 5 to 10 seats. Five are already lost and at least another five are in danger. The Senate was disappointing as well. They will end up with a small net gain but Republicans will still control the Senate.
The mood is probably sour in the Senate too but I don’t know if they can overthrow Schumer. I certainly hope not. If they get rid of him there is always the possibility that would would replace him with someone capable. We don’t want that.
