No blue wave; what do Dems do now?

11 posts in this topic

The Blue Wave did not materialize.  While the Dems did get control of the House, the GOPers are more firmly in control of the Senate.  The states may be a wash, Dems better in some, but GOPers better or the same in others.

There will be fewer moderates in both parties in the future so look for less working together and less being done.

Trump will be able to appoint just about anyone he wishes to administration positions and federal judiciary.  Will Ginsburg retire or try to hang on for at least two more years?

Will Dems shoot themselves in the vote with half-assed investigations and talk of impeachment that merely anger independent voters?

Will Dems be able to hold on to House in 2020?  Say what you like, Trump can turn out the voters in many areas.

The new Dem Congressional people are more left than their predecessors.  Many of the GOPers who lost were the moderates in their party.  Some moderate GOP congressional and senatorial people lost in the primaries.

Below is good advice for Pelosi and the new Dems in Congress. NO impeachment talks, NOinvestigations for first 100 days - prepare for thorough, well done investigations, not shams as GOPers in House did.  1. Raise minimum wage to $15, 2. fix the Affordable Care Act, 3. restore the Voting Rights Act, 4. infrastructure bill without pork, 5. a clean DACA bill.  Then dare the GOPers in Senate to vote against above and Trump to veto them.

I think they did pretty well. I never expected the Dems to win the Senate. A very bad map for

them this year. They did take the House and increased the number of Dem governors. Trump

can turn out voters, it is also obvious that he can repel them. If Donny had acted like a normal

president and person he would have done a lot better, but that's asking too much of him. Dems

should go slow on investigations, but some are going to come and rightfully so. All in all, this was

good news, not as good as IBM offering $190 for shares of Red Hat, but good nonetheless.
