Oh, The Horror – GOPe Republicans Fear Feedback From Trump’s Coalition…

A rather funny article today in Politico outlines a fear of Trump’s coalition amid congressional republicans.

trump-posse

The article is sympathetic to the GOPe wing of the DC UniParty from a perspective of those nasty Trumpers, ie. “the posse“; and includes South Carolina Rep Mark Sanford as a testimonial of their fear:

[…]  “Nobody wants to go first,” said Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), who received nasty phone calls, letters and tweets after he penned an August op-ed in The New York Times, calling on Trump to release his tax returns. “People are naturally reticent to be the first out of the block for fear of Sean Hannity, for fear of Breitbart, for fear of local folks.”

O.M.G…  The Horror!   Can you possibly imagine the audacity of the voters to actually express an opinion toward the professional political class?  Just who do these plebes think they are?

trump smile 3[…]  The Republican officeholders see Trump’s unabashed use of his Twitter account to shame critics as the most foreboding threat. During campaign season, he regularly took shots at adversaries, including Marco Rubio (“Little Marco”), Ted Cruz (“Lyin’ Ted,”) and Speaker Paul Ryan (a “very weak and ineffective leader”).

Trump hasn’t gone after any lawmakers on Twitter since the election, but some worry it’s just a matter of time. Eventually, some Republican will feel compelled to challenge his trillion-dollar infrastructure plan, or slap companies that move jobs overseas with massive tariffs. And that’s when things will get ugly, insiders predict. (read more)

Note to GOPe:

    In just a matter of a few hours, here is some of the HATE that was being spewed on CNN today:

    Jake Tapper said Boeing denies ever quoting a figure of 4.2 Billion, so where did Trump get that figure from? Did he just make it up? Why is Trump acting as if he made a great deal when the cost was never as high as he claimed?

    David Gergen was ripping on Donald Trump for tweeting. He said it’s not very professional and Trump should be above that. Gergen predicts no future president will resort to Twitter as a means of communication.

    Rebecca Berg [Real Clear Politics Reporter and CNN Political Contributor] may very well find herself in some deep trouble for the slanderous remarks she made on CNN today.

    They were slamming Trump about the daily security briefings and this Rebecca girl actually said “We know from talking to Trump advisors in the past that he doesn’t have a long attention span, and this may be why he chooses to ignore taking the briefings. Let’s just hope that he gives these briefings the seriousness that they deserve”.

    Really?!? Who the hell does this girl think she is? First of all, she looks like she is barely out of school and probably just landed her first job, but she is going to analyze PE Trump and criticize his work ethics by implying that he has some kind of mental defect?
    And nobody on the panel fact checked her by asking exactly WHO told her such incriminating nonsense.

    If, in fact, one of Trump’s advisors ever told a reporter that the future president of the United States doesn’t have a “long attention span” don’t you think that it would have been Breaking News?

    I hope this girl finds herself on the losing end of a YUGE lawsuit!

    These people are PURE EVIL!

      In the sales world they are called Drivers. Big picture people, although adept at detail if necessary. Don’t bore them with b.s. because they don’t have time for it. My late husband was this type. They often come off as brusque and intimidating because they want you to get to the point.

      Real world funny story: When I started in sales more than 25 years ago, I actually took my husband with me on a sales call (industrial arena and his world also). Prospect was a Driver, but I was a newbie and hadn’t figured out how to sell different personality types yet. Prospect asked a question and I launched into a detailed spiel. When I was done, my husband looked at me and said, “he asked you what time it was and you told him how the watch was built.” We all had a good laugh at my expense and I learned a valuable lesson.

      Those complaining just don’t get it. Expectations were set so low for his success that, when he’s done fixing our mess, he’ll go down in history as one of our greatest Presidents. We’ll of course say we knew it all along.

      http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/12/21/boeing-ceo-vows-to-build-new-air-force-one-for-less-after-trump-complaints.html

      Trump called on the government to cancel the contract and called the supposed $4 billion price tag out of control.

      Boeing’s Dennis Muilenburg, who met with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., addressed the media after the meeting and said, “We’re going to get it done for less than that, and we’re committed to working together to make sure that happens.”

      When folk’s like Tapper and what’s her name come out with their BS, we just need to turn it back around with the facts we have.

    • Trump’s attention span proved virtually infinitelt greater than Clinton’s as he focused on winning the relevant electoral vote, campaigned his ass off, and delivering lengthy stump speeches.

      As to national security briefings, Trump proved to have an infinitely greater grasp of relevant national security issues that do Obama and Clinton, even long before he ever received a formal briefing.

      Trump knows how to delegate. With Mad Dog Mattis attending briefings and having instant access to Trump, that’s actually better than having Trump sit in on every briefing. Trump is a workaholic and he will always be focused on doing something productive, and there are many functions the POTUS must do that the SECDEF can’t.

    All of us and millions more understand that Trump risked his business, reputation, family, and even his life to do this. He did it because he saw the country was failing.

    Now, those of us who realize this (and there are millions) think the guy is an honest-to-God hero. Personally, I feel very protective of him, because of how much he sacrificed and how hard he worked.

    Am I going to stand by while these jerks try to sabotage his agenda? NO. I will stick up for him the way he stuck up for us!

      You are so very right! Some got him the day he rode down the elevator, it took me a couple weeks and a good friend who helped me see the beauty of his wealth and not being bought and paid for by big donors. So I was happy during the primaries when Trump and Cruz seemed to create a block against the uniparty guys. What really won me over were those two famous words “low energy”. I see those two words as the two words that changed the world. We, who were paying attention, understood those two words to mean “entitled”; i.e. entitled so there is no need to work hard and thus appear to be low energy.

      With those two words, he destroyed 2 political dynasties named Bush and Clinton, and in the process exposed the UniParty. And now that the UniParty is laid bare, he is shining light on the radical left.

      The man is a Godsend.

      Congress has a LOT to prove.
      The RNC seems to think we are all-in for the RNC, as we love and voted for TRUMP.
      I am all-in for TRUMP, which is not the same as a willingness to support the RNC.

  15. I’m having my own experience with disconnected Congresspeople. I sent emails to both of my Senators and my Congressman questioning the legality of the CIA interfering in our elections. I thought they were prohibited from involvement in domestic issues.

    I so far have received one response from Senator Thom Tillis (NC). He should be embarrassed. I’m sure it was not written by him…probably one of his 20 something year old office lackeys.

    The email said something like the CIA has concluded that the Russians intervened in our elections and that Senator Tillis fully supports a Congressional investigation. What a joke.

    I just wrote back quoting Congressman Peter King saying it was a disinformation campaign by Brennan and that I opposed any wasteful Congressional investigation based on rumor. Furthermore, only 29% of the American people believe the Russians were involved and they are all Democrats. I also asked him to answer my question regarding the legality of the CIA involvement in domestic policy.

    Wonder if a lackey will respond again. Does he really think I am so stupid as to accept this kind of response to my question? No way…and Senator Burr and Mark Meadows have not responded at all.

I think we may see a major realignment coming soon. The Democrats are quickly slipping into irrelevance. That takes out one wing of the UniParty, and I can see the Republican party fracturing into Trump’s coalition and the UniParty remnants.

    Almost exactly 200 years ago, James Monroe, a Democratic-Republican, defeated his Federalist opponent and presided over the dissolution of the Federalist Party. Monroe ran essentially unopposed in 1820 to win a second term. At the risk of sounding overly optimistic, might we see the same happening for Trump? To be sure, Trump will face very stiff opposition, but as long as he delivers results his opposition will be rendered impotent.

      I should add that some obvious early evidence of the coming realignment is the seemingly random “alliance” between Glenn Beck and Samantha Bee. We’ll see things like this happen more often over the course of Trump’s presidency.

        If Samantha Bee gains a deranged nutcase like Beck, at the cost of hemorrhaging hundreds of thousands of Beck-despising working-class people like myself, I am quite happy for her to make that bargain.

  40. My personal political mission is to make Bradley Byrne’s remaining days as AL 1st Congressman uncomfortable and pressured as he tries to live down his withdrawing the Trump Endorsement when the Access Hollywood video came out.

    Saturday at the Trump Victory rally, as a Posse member, it was my great pleasure to greet him with a well place “Bradley Byrne You Suck!” screamed at the top of my lungs. It was right as the crowd got quiet before he spoke. Several people didn’t understand but the rest of us let them know :). Yep, Posse is about right – let’s ride :).

    “professional political class”. Hopefully the author of the piece understands this, but the term itself and its manifestation as the GOPe is anathema to the basis of which this country was founded. We were not intended to have a professional political class. I hope the PPC is scared s@#$less — they should be.

    This is nothing NEW. It’s the same thing we’ve been saying to our Reps and Senators for YEARS.

    The only difference is we finally elected a President who HAS OUR BACKS. Just as we have his!

    My suggestion is to keep pestering our State Senators and State Reps, Mayor, and State Governor. U.S. Rep also. U.S. Senators are the most useless of the bunch, and they have very little connection to their home state, local needs. But you can CC them anyway. If we stay awake, and keep buzzing around their heads like mad hornets, we may just straighten out our country. You never know…

  46. Bottom line, if you truly support and represent the American people, then you have nothing to worry about.

    I admit that, since 2008, I have had a defeatist mentality, and I pretty much stopped paying close attention politically. But now optimism abounds, and I want to make sure we build on this national success and extend it to the state level.. So much wrong info is put out there, that it’s hard to navigate to find the truth, but I have found this site to reflect my spiritual and political values. Said all that to say this – could this site be a jumping off point, or partner with like minded organizations at the state level for each state? Maybe there’s something (trustworthy) like this already out there ?

      There’s no substitute for Doing The Work, yourself.

      You can read the links here, see who other people have found trustworthy, listen to the arguments offered by those who disagree, and evaluate people by the track-record of their deeds and arguments. In the end, you will never agree 100% with any pundit, expert, or commenter about everything. Even Sundance, you will find things you disagree about, and that’s fine.

      The point it to find people who are sincere in their positions, honest in their weighing of evidence, and coherent in their arguments. People like, say, Sundance. Even where you disagree with their thought processes and conclusions, you can consider them as reliable sources of information if they clearly are actively wrestling with a search for Truth and making their biases clear.

      Just one recent example: there’s been a lot of video-posting of a certain Canadian war reporter who just dismantled a snide Norwegian reporter quoting talking points to her. It is a near-certainty that the Canadian reporter in question has political opinions significantly to the left of the average reader here, and there would be lots of disagreement on all kinds of policy positions if the full lists of issues were streamed out. Again: that’s fine. The thing that matters is that she values hard Truths over comforting partisan slogans. Even if there is never full concord, lefties like her and righties like the commentariat here can come to useful mutual understandings about the Truths of what’s happening in the world.
