2018 was a WAY better election for Democrats than most people seem to think

Good article discussing the results of the mid-terms, and despite GOP propaganda and twisting of the facts, the Dems actually had a very good night, and there's no doubt whatsoever that the Trump agenda was rejected. I'd argue that the fact that he even lost the house with this economy is embarrassing on his part, and speaks volumes to how bloody awful he is as president.

Libertarian - Right
Fewest seats picked up in DECADES , (other than actually losing seats in BOTH HOUSES in 2002 ) and barely made a dent in GOP domination at the state level, and LOST GORUND IN THE ALL IMPORTANT ( USSC , FED.JUDICIARY) SENATE.


The Vaunted Blue Wave was more like:

Right on!

The Democrats had a sensational night -- thanks to:

1. The fake news mainstream media.

2. A little help from non-citizen "voters." (Friendly judges blocked efforts by some states to verify citizenship.)

3. And the uncanny ability of Democratic party election officials to suddenly discover "lost" ballots.


Democrats should all be very proud of themselves! What patriotic Americans they are! What a wonderful lesson in civics they are teaching their children!

The vaunted talking heads of media desperate to make early calls on these elections got their heads handed to them. Jake Tapper, the whole miserable bunch made fools out of themselves. Comedy of Media Errors. Nobody from the 24/7's escapes criticism here. They all essentially sucked!

Well, you are right about 2018 being good for Democrats.

Since they are living in the USA at this time in this rejuvenated economy, they are enjoying all of the benefits that this implies.

However, as with most things, it is good for ALL AMERICANS as Trump promised.

Since it's not possible to split out the factions that the Dems like to split out, it's difficult for them to understand what's happening.

That said, though, people who previously did not have a job that now DO have a job are improved more than the rest of us.

In this improved and improving economy, we can say, "Poor and minorities hardest hit" or in this case, "helped".

It's starting to look like RBG is going to be the third of five Trump nominees to the SCOTUS.

Retaining the Senate is a YUGE deal!

She's 85 and falling down and getting severely injured.

Not wishing anything bad on the lady. Just observing reality.
