Democrats running on empty

Trump Republicans have all the enthusiasm

Ho and Hum are leading Iowa caucuses

Give her some slack. Nancy Pelosi has had a very tough week. Her impeachment gambit fizzled like an Independence Day sparkler left in the rain. Instead, Donald Trump is enjoying is best poll numbers of his Presidency. 

  • Democrats struggle to find rain clouds in an economy that is all sunshine and lollipops. 
  • TV talking heads are using terms like “train wreck” and “dumpster fire” to describe the Iowa’s Democrat(ic) caucuses.  And Democrats want to run nationalized health care?
  • An outright socialist who honeymooned in the Soviet Union and championed Fidel Castro leads their presidential hopefuls. 
  • The hated Donald Trump had just delivered a State of the Union address that registered an 11 on the Wow factor. The President underscored how radical Democrats are on abortion uber alles, prayer in school, failing government-monopoly schools that trap poor black kids, sanctuary for illegal and often dangerous immigrants. 
Brother killed

Pelosi this morning (02-06-2020) called the SOTU address a “reality TV show.” Shown, brother of a California man killed by an illegal, undocumented immigrant.

No wonder the Speaker succumbed to her inner child, throwing a temper tantrum worthy of a four-year-old in the candy aisle by ostentatiously ripping up the paper copy of his speech. 

House Republicans are filing ethics charges against the Mad Ripper for destroying an official government document (which it is). No one, it appears, is above the law. 

Another Hillary snoozer

As Democrats continue to count votes from the Iowa Democrat(ic) caucuses Monday (02-03-2020) word is that Al Gore is picking up chads and chads of votes. Partisan Democrats like MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, John Kerry, ragin’ cajun James Carville, and the Hildabeast Herself are pressing the eject button. Is their best hope a multi-billionaire who bans Kwikie-Mart sodas?

Once the front-runner, Joe Biden’s candidacy is forever tainted by his son’s ties to corrupt Burisma while sitting as vice president, nominally fighting corruption in Ukraine. His candidacy’s raison d’être was his supposed electability. No more, thanks to his poor fourth-placing showing in Iowa (we think). Biden is now bad-mouthing the two front-runners coming out of Iowa: Sanders and Mayor Pete. (I’m too lazy to look up the spelling of his last name.) Trust Democrats to eat their own.

Face it, Trump won the Iowa caucuses Statewide, Monday 170,000 Democrats turned out, well below the 240,000 who jammed the caucuses in 2008 when Barack Obama excited the base. Even with no real challengers, turnout in the Republican caucuses set a record for an incumbent Presidential year.

In other words: “Democrats were counting on Barack Obama-levels of enthusiasm. They got Hillary Clinton numbers, instead,Politico observes. … “It’s an enthusiasm gap.”

⇒ Betting aggregator put Trump’s chances of re-election at 59.9%; 16.7% for Sanders

GOP could retake the House

A caucus goer in heavily Democrat(ic) Iowa City warned that it’s a “real wakeup call for Democrats, coming out of Iowa: We can’t put our heads in the sand and ignore the middling turnout, in a time of bonafide historic upheaval. 

Yes, Susan Collins may be vulnerable in Maine. So is Doug Collins in Alabama. So are 30 House Democrats seeking re-election in districts Trump won four years ago. One of them has already switched parties. Trump today predicted Kevin McCarthy will be the next House speaker.

Democrats: Free college grievance studies majors.
Republicans: More carpenters, welders, and electricians.

Democrats are competing as to who can conjure the most absurd ideas. Does anyone think America (outside of places like San Francisco, Manhattan, and Madison WI) will vote to pay reparations? Their platforms are comedy gold. “Green New Deal promises energy-efficient gulags in every neighborhood,” the Babylon Bee parodies.

Blaska’s Bottom LineNancy Pelosi can shred Trump’s state of the union address into confetti but 43% of Democrats and 72% of Independents liked Trumps SOTU speech, just the same, according to a CBS/YouGov poll. The Deplorables!

    I think if Donald Trump wins a second term, we will all regret that we didn’t do more to stop it. That should include you, too, but you’re too busy shilling for the megalomaniac and his posse of enablers.

      A LOT of people were expressing that very sentiment about Hopey Changey eight years ago as we speak.

      The Republic survived…and just LOOK at us now!

      Trump did more to support Bernie Sanders than Bernie Sanders and his own party did. How were you planning on winning again? Definitely instruct Buttigieg to kiss his husband while campaigning in South Carolina.


  2. Tom Paine says:

    not the grammar police, but did you mean “Doug Jones,” and not Dough Collins?



  3. Gary L. Kriewald says:

    What I can’t understand is why it took this long for the President’s advisers (a smart bunch) to figure out that the old format for a State of the Union address is far too constrictive for someone of Trump’s … unique rhetorical talents. The prissy remarks about his turning the event into a “reality show” demonstrate how unself-aware Trump’s critics are; it’s entertainment value that counts, not statesmanship (an elitist concept if there ever was one). And on that score, Trump nailed it. Whoever thought of bestowing honors and surprises on the guests instead of just acknowledging their presence deserves a big raise. An admirable example of the old theatrical adage: show, don’t tell.

    As for Mother Superior Nancy, ever prayerful and solemn, the miserable old c*nt finally showed her true colors–tearing up that speech was more petulant and childish than anything Trump has said or done over the last three years. At least her stunt provided golden footage for his campaign ads.

    “More carpenters, welders and electricians”? Only if unions are around to train them. Republicans, less trades people.


    • Cornelius Gotchberg says:

      ”Only if unions are around to train them.”

      Only Unions can train tradespeople?

      Do you have any earthly idea just how freakin’ stupid that sounds?

        That’s why most construction companies like unions, they know the caliber of worker the union trains. They are a known quantity. Besides without a union the trades will just be another low paying job.

          Google “supply and demand.” January posted highest one month rise in wages in years. We sure know that teachers don’t need unions. Thanks Scotty.

    Yah, well, I’ve been chirping about the Dem ‘enthusiasm gap’ for at least 3 months. The blue-collar Democrats (a/k/a the Reagan Dems) just can’t bring themselves to vote for anyone except Doddering Ol’ Joe……..and the hammering he’s taken about his kid (plus the more-and-more evident sun-downing) have taken their toll.

    Bloomberg is a Statist dictator-wannabee (look at his record in NooYawk) and he’s an umpleasant jerk, to boot.

    More: Congress will flip back to R control, with even larger Senate R majority. And the new Pubbies will NOT be like the old Pubbies–all Bob Dole/GHWBush losers. This will be fun!!

    we will all regret that we didn’t do more to stop it.

    Care to expand on your concerns?

    Most of us who participate in this blog have had battles with dunderheads in other places, too. I see FB comments growing ever more strident, e-mails ever more derogatory and petulant, and more… So I can safely say that the Left is left bereft and will likely be even more moronic and uncivil, as they ignore fact-after-fact. Just the facts, M’am While Trump is at an all time high in polls, as well as all the economic stats, they will double-down with rude, arrogant and outta touch statements. Pelosi: “4 year old in the candy aisle” is Oh So apropos. Fortunately, they still have yet to see the utter chaos in their own party. Too early to gloat ? P’raps but so far, not likely…..

      Thanks, Gotch, I missed that clip. I also missed that she has four eyebrows. She’s so outta breath and enervated, I thought it was a “When Harry Met Sally” remake…


  8. madisonexpat says:

    The Left believes its own propaganda, yet again. 92% of media coverage is negative towards President Trump yet the people line up for 24 hours to hear him speak. His competitors outbid each other in how they hope to make America less great. James (Serpent Head) Carville (per his wife). Says he’s scared to death for his party and rightly so.
    Go long on popcorn futures. Iowa needs our support.

    P.S. Carville and Mary Matalin are a great example of how to love your political opponents. I envy that.

      ”Carville and Mary Matalin are a great example of how to love your political opponents.”

      Hate the sin and not the sinner, am I right?

      Anywho; FWIW, the lovely and long suffering Mrs. Gotch is a career Lefty, and I suspect The Gotch’s…um…body of work speaks for itself…

    There’s only one party, da Ds, … the party of Death, the Devil and the Devil’s Own Donkey, … that booed God and tried to abort Him from their party platform and think “choicing” babies is doing the Lord’s work. Get thee behind me, DemonRatz.
