“Analysts” are opining on “what message” does Georgia’s special election send. One is obvious. The republican won, the democrat didn’t. Again.
But the message that’s out there is, that the republican base is energized to win and save the agenda that Trump ran on. After all, that’s what, and who, they voted for.
It’s also a “last call” for the Never Trump Republicans and those Republicans in the swamp to get behind the president in a 100% party kind of way. The message to them is get off your ass, and get legislation passed. Try it and let the policies succeed or fail on their own. Sitting on your thumb is not an option.
What, suddenly the Democrat Party is rudderless, leaderless? Writer Matthew Dallek hits all the angles of why, except the one where blame belongs, President Barack Obama. He destroyed the party’s identity for his own vision. Neither he or the party can admit that or plot a course for a new and improved political party. To do that would be to repudiate The One’s vision.
Republicans have their own problems. They have a leader, they have a vision. Problem is, they also have members in the swamp who like their political careers more than the future of the country. Were that not the case, if people like McCain and a few others would get on board, it’s Katy bar the doors.
