Sunday’s ‘Meet the Press’ showed one of the many reasons Republicans need to lose Georgia runoffs

first_imgThat tells you what to expect if they hold the Senate on Jan. 5: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will keep upholding the basic values Trump has brought to the table. McConnell will obstruct and blockade and prevent President Biden from getting anything done for the nation. Republicans will hurt the public in order to hurt Democratic election chances going forward, just as they are right this instant hurting the public by not challenging Trump to accept his defeat and begin the transition process. Republicans will do anything to win. But Democrats have to find a way to beat them. Republicans have spent the past four years doing Trump’s bidding, whether because they liked what they got from him enough to overlook what they didn’t like, or because secretly even those of them who sometimes pretend disapproval at his worst abuses are in their heart of hearts on board with every bit of Trump’s Trumpiness.And now, with national security and pandemic response on the line in a presidential transition, they’re still unwilling to challenge him. Be it simple fear, be it agreement with his efforts to overturn the results of the election, be it those two Georgia Senate seats, Republicans are not willing to do the right thing.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more
