My final thoughts of the day and of this election…..
First the words of our dear leader at 0230 hrs on 04Nov20……
President Trump addressed a crowd that appeared to be largely maskless inside the White House just before 2:30am Wednesday, noting as he came out, “This is without question the latest news conference I have ever had.” He thanked Americans for their support and quickly rolled out his oft-repeated and baseless claim about election fraud: “Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight, and a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people, and we won’t stand for it.” He went on to essentially declare victory in Georgia and North Carolina, which have not yet been called, and suggested Pennsylvania and Michigan, which also have not yet been called, will easily go his way.
He also suggested multiple times that his team had been preparing for a big victory celebration that, he implied, had to be called off due to Democratic interference; he accused them of going to court in order to steal the election there. “This is a fraud on the American public,” he said in extensive concluding remarks. “This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election, frankly, we did win this election. … So our goal now is to ensure the integrity, for the good of this nation, this is a very big moment. This is a major fraud on our nation. We want the law to be used in a proper manner, so we’ll be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list. It’s a very sad moment. … We will win this, and as far as I’m concerned, we already have won it.”
Your typical fare from a psychopathic leader that wants to try and sway the count…..maybe there is a spot at Arkham Asylum in Gotham.
There was NO Blue Wave that had been predicted by so many pundits.
The Lincoln Project was a bit effective but a total lack of support from Repubs….so will Moderate Repubs turn to Trump as their savior now?
Basically the country is a 50-50 split between authoritarianism and democratic ideals…..tribalism is here to stay (at least for awhile).
Most Americans do not give a fig about how Milwaukee voted….we want to know who is gonna be the president not how downtown Chicago voted…all that crap is just filler to justify their existence as a news source.
If this is the best the Democratic Party can do then it is time for it to evaluate itself and look for a message that the American people want to hear….so far theirs sucks! They, Dems, lost seats in the House and even lost a seat in the Senate….a seat they could not afford to lose.
One thing that will be certain….the myth of 2 Americas is NO myth…the divisions will remain….the hatred will remain…..the demonizing will remain…..there will be very little bi-partisanship……the GOP has settled on its true nature…..the Dems are still looking for that message that has eluded them for 20 years.
For all those voters that thought the US would find their “better angels”….sorry they did not there never was any “better angels”…..it is going to be a long 4 years.
