I think your boy got some Independents.

Some Dems either didn't vote, or voted for 3rd part candidates.

They may exist, but haven't personally met a Dem that voted for Trump. Although my neighbor, a lifelong Republican, voted for Hillary.

NO just people from the Democratic party. Prior to the election it was about 20% of the democrats voting for Trump. I wonder what the final vote count was for Dems voting for Trump

Those would be the flyover Dems. The forgotten.

If the GOP delivers on their promises to bringing jobs back to this segment, then I suspect they will stay, otherwise, they won't.

They made their bed. Now they can sleep in it.

I think this is interesting.

 

"Vice-President elect Mike Pence was on Capitol Hill Wednesday searching for votes to break a Democratic filibuster."

 

So Donny wants the votes counted before he nominates a candidate?

I don't have high expectations for Trump. Many of his harden supporters will feel duped when he doesn't deliver on his lofty and unrealistic promises. I trust he'll appoint conservative judges though.

Obama waited for a year with his nomination, and got nowhere with the GOP. Not even a freekin' hearing. WTF?

Screw the Republicans. Show zero cooperation.

I'm sure he'll nominate a conservative. I just think it's interesting he expects the Republicans to rubber stamp his nominee before they know who it is.

Yea, that'll fix 'em. 

 

That kind of thinking is exactly what is wrong with Capitol Hill.

I'm not so sure either but we shall see how he does. If he sucks I'll vote for someone else next election but it won't be neither Democrat or Republican. I've had it with all politicians from both parties.

They don't have to help, and they can't anyway. So just sit it out and say you disagreed with it.

The war began 8 years ago. No Dem help. Not that it's needed, anyway. Symbolism.

There is room for compromises, say, on obama Care. But not on the SC nominee.

Whatever.

Yes, whatever.

If the GOP was genuine about cooperating (they are not), they had a year to at least hold a hearing of Obama's nomination. They would not. They did not.

As Obama said last night during his 60 Minutes interview: He was told by GOP Leaders, early on in his Presidency, that they would oppose his every step, because they said' "any successes he had, meant GOP defeats in mid-term Congressional elections". Blunt, but honest partisan politics, to the max.

So, yeah, screw them.

You want to be like them. So noted.

And what possible benefit can there be in the Dems rubber stamping a conservative SC nominee from the child-elect?

Good will? BWAHAHAHAHA.

Boom.

The strategy that worked exceedingly well for the Republicans in gaining control of both the House and Senate, was to resist Obama, and to spread mis-information about Obama's plans (remember how they said Obama was going to take everyone's guns....people believed this nonesense.

As the GOP logic went, Obama's success, was the GOP's defeat. No mid-ground.

I would modify this strategy a bit - If there's something on the table that Dems can rally behind, then support it. Otherwise, resist.
