Democrats are licking their lips in anticipation of a 2018 wave election that returns the Speaker’s gavel to Nancy Pelosi icy grip and ushers in a new era of having to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill. But hubris is always stalked by nemesis and pride goes before a fall. Eddie Zipperer at Lifezette explains that Democrats should be much more circumspect about their actual prospects:
GOP congressional candidate Greg Gianforte body-slammed a reporter the day before the U.S. House special election in Montana and still won by 6 percent. Democrats should take that as a harbinger of political doom on a par with meeting the weird sisters or receiving a visit from Hamlet’s father. You need no ghost to come from the grave to tell you that when your policies are 6 percent less popular than misdemeanor assault, you need new policies.
But Democrats seem incapable of learning from elections. After losing the House, the Senate, the presidency, several governorships, and scores of state legislature seats over the past eight years, they continue to charge forward, propelled by the delusion that America’s heart beats for globalism, socialism, part-time jobs, and feckless foreign policy.
Meanwhile, once-influential media outlets have become nothing more than tabloid-style, anonymous-source-citing, Republican-attacking enablers, pushing clickbait headlines and irresponsibly spinning narratives that reinforce the delusion that Republicans and conservatives are a tiny fringe group of deplorable racists, xenophobes, and homophobes.

Herself is doing her best to make Richard Nixon’s resentments and vendettas look amateurish.
But…but…but…aren’t the Democrats going to SWEEP the midterms, regain BOTH Houses of Congress and then IMPEACH Trump and rid us of him in favor of Hillary? When they can pad the SCOTUS with Liberal Socialist Justices like Kagan, Sotomayor, Ginsburg et al, they can declare the 2016 Election nullified and elevate Hillary to the Oval Office!
Can’t wait for 2018. There will be a solid GOP pickup of close to 10 seats in the Senate and a modest pickup of a dozen or so in the House. Hopefully some of the RINOs will get primaried out as well.
Why, you’d almost think that backing Hillary Clinton was the death knell for the Democrat party.
Succinct and prescient. Very nicely done.
The way things are evolving, I fully expect the Republican Party to control the political dynamics of this country for the next 20 years, or.
