Well that was the most contested speakership race in over 100 years. Although it was annoying and time consuming from my point of view it means there are people in the GOP that aren’t willing to sit back and just let the status quo happen.
We know old Mitch is a steaming piece of cow shit, how he got behind that wasteful Omnibus bill that virtually nobody had time to read is jut proof positive he is part of the same swamp.
Don’t get me wrong I am not saying or do I believe that the 20 hold outs, that became 6 hold outs are perfect or won’t muck things up, but it’s clear the concessions that asked for and seem to have gotten really do speak to a MAGA way of doing things.
We all know Trump is far from perfect, he might not even be the best man for the job next election that remains to be seen still. But you can never fault him for not having America’s best interests at heart. A multi billionaire he doesn’t suffer fools lightly is hardly going to know how to play the political game as well as the long term swamp rats, but he did a pretty amazing job when you add it all up and hold your nose looking past some of his comments and personel choics.
If somehow this new group could mange to get term limits imposed going forward it would alter the Federal Gov’t for the better for a long time to come. Give power back to the states and let move towards how it was all meant to run not the dog and pony show it’s become.
Hat’s off to the *Present* 6, hope there is a lot more to come.
