|1) Impeachment Imbeciles|
We’ve been predicting that with Democrats controlling all of the levers of government again – they would sprint way past their mandate from voters as they did when both Clinton and Obama were elected.
We just didn’t think it would happen so quickly.
After their lunatic vote to impeach Trump of Russia collusion – you know, the hoax – they might have been chastened. Instead, every Democrat in the House voted yesterday to re-impeach. EVERY LAST ONE!
The smart move would have been to censure Trump, and have him leave office next week disgraced. That didn’t happen because our sources tell us Pelosi believed the vote would split the GOP down the middle. It didn’t. Pelosi’s gambit was so heavy-handed that in a strange way she unified House Republicans. Just 10 Republicans voted for impeachment.
And for what? There was never any chance that the Senate could conduct a trial before Trump leaves office. We think it’s unlikely that there will ever be a Senate trial.
Just as Donald Trump has always been his own worst enemy, congressional Democrats are their own worst enemies.
The real goat here was Biden. He could have taken the high road and told Democrats to cease and desist. Instead, he was AWOL. That “unity” message the President-elect has been touting lasted about 72 hours.
|2) Manchin to the Rescue?|
Well, at least there might be…count em, ONE, sensible Democrat in Congress. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia is the key swing vote in a 50 to 50 Senate and he is letting it be known he’s not an automatic vote for either side.
Last week, he frustrated many Democrats by indicating his opposition to providing $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans already receiving aid.
“How is the money that we invest now going to help us best to get jobs back and get people employed? And I can’t tell you that sending another check out is gonna do that to a person that’s already got a check,” Manchin told the Washington Post.
What will help the economy in Manchin’s estimation? “Getting people vaccinated, that’s job No. 1.”
Right on, Senator!
