Well, yes. But at the same time no one in living memory has done more for the Republican Party and its goal of a single party government.

You hear any Republicans complaining about him?

You got that one RIGHT! They have fulfilled a number of wet dreams - Mitch ain't going anyplace. With the current run, for instance, I believe they are in a "shrink gov" state and will keep it going as long as possible - screw them that don't like it (most of the population I think)

McConnell may or may not be the minority leader after the Dems take the Senate in 2020 and he may get primaried or defeated whenever he next comes up for election.

So there's that to look forward to.

Speaking of primaries, apparently there isn't going to BE a Republican primary in 2020.

RNC Resolutions Committee just voted unanimously to “undivided support” for Trump and his “effective presidency," clearing way for passage before full GOP governing body on Friday.

You know, a lot of outrage boiled over when the DNC effectively locked Bernie out, but Bernie was not a Democrat, so at least for me, it wasn't that much of a surprise. I was hoping a miracle would occur, or that Bernie might finally do an eleventh hour switch and join the Dems, but in the end the door was slammed on his foot.

But now...NOW...we're talking about a party that wants to slam the door on actual Republican party MEMBERS!
And that, if I am not mistaken, is unprecedented, especially considering the fact that 2016 saw a field of SEVENTEEN contenders, so this is a total 180.

And it reeks of something extremely anti-democratic, other Republicans *NEED NOT APPLY.
Wow...just WOW.

(This means YOU, *John Kasich!)

Boy, won't they look even more like fools when Trump doesn't run for a second term.

Or can't.
The scary thing is, where does their incredible confidence that he CAN come from? Not sure if I want to know, but we gotta know.

I know you are being facetious. Didn't Mr Trump start a re-election committee the day after inaugurated? And of course now the RNC has closed their presidential primary.

The other option is Mr Trump will be under a black cloud of indictments, impeachment proceedings, etc.
