    You were warned, but you wouldn’t listen.

    John and company knew exactly what would happen.  He thinks it’s better than a Trump presidency, right?

    Apparently.  Although he’s been oddly quiet on the subject recently.

    In other words, if Trump had exercised self control and not said and tweeted the wild things, we would not have a Biden Presidency.  The Commentary commentators pointed out the bad effects of Trump’s behavior for a long time.  The swing voters who used to vote Republican but switched to Democrat don’t read Commentary; they don’t know what this magazine says.

    More importantly, if a bunch of voters in Georgia who showed up for Trump had also showed up for the runoff, Biden wouldn’t be changing the very rules of the Senate, trampling over the Byrd Rule and going for broke.

    No but the kind of Republican who thought Biden could be reasoned with do.  Their issue was getting smug about Georgia and celebrating the coming gridlock but spiking the football at the 1.

    I always thought that the hard left deliberately supported Biden because they knew he is easily controlled.  Biden would have no shot at any moderation even if he wanted to. It’s clear he doesn’t even want to.

    Ricochet Audio Network: …which he did not run on and for which no one voted.

    Good grief.  What were you expecting?  Seriously?

    I think the hard left made a deal with the whole 50/50 platform agreement.  The rest of the candidates had their debt wiped out imo.  Then the talking point became “talk him up as a moderate” knowing he was a trojan horse for all of their policies.

    You guys got what you wanted. I have no sympathy. Maybe it’s time to retire and let actual conservatives carry the ball.

    Probably the same as Gary’s.  “Orange Man Bad.”  Maybe even “Existential Threat to the GOP.”  (Which means they put what they consider to be “The Party” – in their own bizarre image – over The Country.  Which, last I heard, we’re not supposed to do.)

    Conduct unseemly which takes away from us winning on the “battlefield of ideas”

    also if you wanted snark, MSNBC hits :)

    But really it’s the former and it does nothing except depress Republican voters.  It’s also why the Dispatch’s strategy of going after Gaetz who is a minor player, and the backhanded jabs at DeSantis will eventually backfire on them when they find someone they actually think is worthy of their praise (and they’re oiling up for that Ben Sasse presidential run that will excite no one) and find no one is lining up behind them.

    I’ve been ignoring the Dispatch. Are they really going after Gaetz and DeSantis?

    Figures. Jonah needs those sweet media appearances.

    No one who matters, anyway.  Gary is already excited about a Ben Sasse presidential run.

    Let’s not drag Gary into a discussion where he’s not present.

    Jonah went after Gaetz.  I don’t listen to French anymore (I’ve come to think his personal attachment on a podcast to the youngest female on any staff is a little creepy), but both I believe have given the DeSantis backhanded compliment in the vein of “Doing a better job than most, don’t like that he went Trumpy”
