Republicans Are Favored to Win the Senate

Original Article

Posted By: Moritz55, 7/14/2022 8:52:06 AM

Recently there has been a spate of stories about Republicans’ difficulties in taking over the Senate. These analyses typically focus on candidates’ poor polling numbers in key states and the weakness of the Republican recruiting class. These aren’t absurd analyses; I’ve referred to the battle between the overall electoral environment and Republican candidate quality as “the irresistible force versus the immovable object” in previous columns. Had the Republican Party fielded its A-team in states like Georgia, Pennsylvania and Arizona, we probably would not be talking about Democrats even having a shot at retaining the Senate. At the same time, we shouldn’t get carried away.

Controlling the House won't be enough. The Dems can still do a lot of damage if Schumer has the reins. Time to step things up, GOP.

Repubs cannot win if dems keep cheating. We have to stop them. We have to be UP 20% to win.

I'm still scratching my head over how Herschel Walker is the best we can do to rid ourselves of Warnock. Walker is being eviscerated in the media for his love children and what is being portrayed as a questionable charity he was associated with. In short... he is not qualified. I will vote for him, but he has no experience at all that would make him Senatorial material.

Pennsylvania has become interesting, because Fetterman, who is an excellent retail campaigner, is too sick to campaign right now - atrial fibrillation, probable cardiomyopathy, had a pacemaker and defibrillator installed. Fetterman is running TV ads that don't appear to be effective. He is a huge man, scary looking, and without retail politics, he may lose. (as a big man, also scary looking, I can sympathize with him.) Oz is not a strong candidate, but circumstances may lead to his victory.

Even if Republicans win the Senate it won't make a world of difference if swamp creature McConnell is still their so-called "leader".

Not going to help much to win the house and senate if half the Republicans are RINOs. The RNC knows this and keeps supporting the RINOs.

I agree witth most above. Without a major MAGA win in the ongoing primaries and the general election, the headline is just "happy talk" from the UniParty. I still have doubts we will even HAVE an election in NOvember - with all the "health emergencies" about.

"there are voters who may disapprove of the job the president is doing, but will nevertheless vote Democratic" THAT is why the message should be that, "Yes, Biden is an incompetent president but he was simply carrying out the will of the dem party. The mess we are in is due to FAILED DEM POLICIES. The only way to fix that is to replace as many dems with Republicans as possible. For example, maybe a Herschel Walker is not your cup of tea and you kind of like the Dem candidate. The simple reality is voting for the dem candidate is continuing to support the failed dem policies. Walker will be a vote for Republican policies which will almost certainly be better than what the dems have done. It's not the candidate, it's the party. The weakest Republican is better than the strongest dem. Yes, many Republicans can be pretty dim about things. The time to fix that is in the primaries (bye, bye Liz Cheney). After that, vote Republican is the only real choice.

Unfortunately, the RINOs will prevent any dramatic changes, even if the Senate becomes "Republican". McConnell works more for China than for American voters.

What difference does it make if the hateful and traitorous Mitch McConnell is still shaking his wattle as Senate Leader???? I know Biden et al are horrific, but a deceitful, conniving, back stabbing soulless creature like McConnell is worse in so many ways. He is stone cold hatred of America personified. And spare me the stories of how he pulled through for our SC judges. It is cold comfort when he turns around and ignores the people he represents. Frigging elitist pig.

Both Oz and Herschel are endorsed by Trump...isn't that a guarantee? It was for Romney. I have my doubts that Walker's love children matter to anyone but the pearl clutchers. More than half the children today live in one-parent conditions. Single mothers are our heroines, it seems. If he makes his support payments, in today's day and age, what's the scandal? If elected, Oz will be the next great PA Senate RINO, like Arlen Specter before him.

It depends on which Republicans are elected to the Senate. If they claim to be MAGA and select that moron McConnell for majority leader again, what will be the gain? We need to deal aggressively with those who claim to be on our side but turn out to be RINOs.

No business at the White House: Biden’s

US out of inflation doom
9 replies

You’ve heard the saying, “Get woke, go broke.” Well, that is exactly what is happening to America as President Biden prioritizes woke concerns such as climate change and gender and racial “equity” over sound economic management. With inflation hitting a spine-chilling record 9.1%, there is fat chance of his know-nothing administration having the competence and know-how to pull us out of this doom spiral. It’s no accident, either, since Biden deliberately has appointed people who tick the right “diversity” boxes, in terms of their physical appearance, with no concern about whether they are qualified to oversee a $6 trillion federal government.

"Consider the challenge accepted, Court." Those defiant words by President Joe Biden last week were meant to rally a possibly anemic political base to, in the words of the president, "vote, vote, vote, vote." Ironically, it was the only part of the president's remarks that is consistent with what the Supreme Court actually said in its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. In overturning Roe v. Wade, the court ruled that millions of citizens, not nine justices, must now decide the question of abortion. In its decision, the court said that in 1973 "Roe abruptly ended (a) political process" of states dealing with the issue of abortion.

From there, I worked hard and excelled in my studies so that I was able to go to college, graduating from New Mexico Tech with a degree in environmental engineering.

“Biden, At 79, Shows Signs Of Age And Aides Fret About His Image,” reads a headline on the front page of Sunday’s New York Times. It’s a goofy article; one that reluctantly tries to tackle the president’s publicly deteriorating mental faculties while claiming he’s still more fit than either Presidents Ronald Reagan or Donald Trump (Republicans). At one point, the reporter even cites “experts” who “put Mr. Biden in a category of ‘super-agers’ who remain unusually fit as they advance in years.” But foolishness aside, there it sits: an article questioning Biden’s fitness for office on the front page of the Sunday Times.

How does President Joe Biden, with pride, call oppressive gasoline prices “an incredible transition?” The same way his millionaire energy secretary tells hard-pressed Americans to solve their financial problems by buying a $60,000 electric car. This White House is inhabited by revolving door careerists who got rich through decades of moving into a plum federal job, then out to a law firm/PR/lobbyist/consultant––and then back in again to burnish the resume. It’s called losing touch with middle America and everyday hardships.

The New York Times is famous for its anthropological studies of conservatives — what wags have called “gorillas in the mist” coverage. The newspaper’s latest anthropological installment is “The Rise of the Far-Right Latina.” That smearing label tells us less about the three Hispanic Texas Republicans profiled in the piece than it does the paper’s hysterical liberal bias and the left’s general obtuseness. Even prosaic conservatism, grounded in the country’s history and traditions, qualifies as “far-right” to woke reporters like Jennifer Medina, who never bothers to examine in the article the “far-left” character of the Democratic Party and progressive movement that is driving Hispanics into the arms of the GOP.

The numbers are in: Red states are winning the post-COVID economic realignment, reports the Wall Street Journal, and blue states are losing. The overall share of US jobs in red states has jumped more than half a percentage point since February 2020. And red states as a group have not only won back all their pandemic job losses; they’ve added around 341,000 more — even as blue states still face an ugly deficit of 1.3 million jobs as of May. To understand why, look no further than at New York, where Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s

The departure of Boris Johnson, who this morning announced that he would resign as British prime minister and Conservative leader, prompted the latest round in a years-long game of comparing him to a blond bombshell political disruptor on this side of the Atlantic. Johnson’s insistence that he cling on to the bitter end offered fresh ammo for the peddlers of the case that he is the British Trump. But sulking for a day or two before throwing in the towel isn’t exactly January 6, and a self-centered determination to fight on isn’t unusual among politicians who make it to the top.

As the federal government under President Biden continues its attempts to undermine the authority of the states to regulate their own elections — unconstitutional and unprecedented federal actions — states are reasserting their power by passing reforms that will protect the integrity of the electoral process. Louisiana is a national leader on this and should continue its work of making it easy to vote and hard to cheat. Election integrity is vital to a healthy democracy because Americans need to have confidence that their votes are protected. A breakdown in any part of ballot protection can weaken this confidence, lead to questions regarding the legitimacy of election outcomes

Brooke Jenkins, the disgruntled former prosecutor who quit Chesa Boudin’s office to become the face of the recall, has been tabbed by Mayor London Breed to be the next District Attorney. It is a bold and combustible move from the mayor — of the names on Breed’s list, Jenkins is surely the riskiest choice. In Jenkins, 40, the mayor has elevated a smart, tough and outspoken prosecutor who even former legal adversaries — who were deeply disturbed by this choice — described as talented and formidable. Jenkins is both Black and Latina (but is not San Francisco’s first Black female DA; you’ll recall Vice President Kamala Harris).

With no end in sight for the Ukraine war, Macron said, the French should brace themselves for costs to remain high. “This war will continue,” he said in a televised interview marking France’s national holiday, Bastille Day. “The summer, early autumn will be very hard.”
