The ability of establishment Republican Party leaders to snatch their own defeat from the jaws of certain victory is awe-inspiring sometimes. Do they go to school for that or something? A few thought leaders on the right – Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis and Marjorie Taylor Greene come to mind – somehow always have their finger on the pulse of the American people and are able to express and fight for policies that reflect that. But not the GOP leaders! Instead of having their fingers on the pulse of anything, they have their heads firmly planted up something else. Take House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), for example.
Nancy Pelosi’s party has done everything possible to try to hand Republicans back control of the House in 2022. Every issue that the Democrats support right now is a big, fat, slow pitch right down the middle, just waiting for the Republican Party leaders to hit it over the fence for the voters. Even the dumbest high-priced political consultant would be able to advise and carry a milquetoast Republican candidate to victory in 2022 by fighting against anyone of these Democrat Party policies:
Defunding the police. Critical Race Theory in schools. Gun bans and gun confiscations. Our wide-open southern border and the resulting crisis. $4-a-gallon gas that’s still rising every day. Runaway food inflation. Letting trans weirdoes walk around in women-only bathrooms with their ding-a-lings hangin’ out.
Step 1: Pick one of the above issues. Step 2: OPPOSE that issue fiercely. Step 3: Enjoy the fruits of a 40- to 50-seat landslide in the House in 2022.
This shouldn’t be that hard, guys!
Well, Kevin McCarthy has just explained the GOP “path to victory” in 2022. Are you ready for it?
McCarthy will be forming a House Republican commission on global warming.
Yep. In order to win back the House, the leaders have decided that Republicans should go all-in on global warming and renewable energy.
What the… how do you… I… I can’t even…
How do you %#$@!* that up, Kevin?!
As proof of how serious he is about losing in the 2022 midterms, McCarthy put the slimiest, most dishonest, cuckservative, gun-grabbing RINO wimp in the entire Congress in charge of the GOP global warming commission: Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
Crenshaw boasted, “I’m an environmentalist. And I know climate change is real.”
Ooooh! Maybe Greta Thunberg will stop by for a photo op/fundraiser with you on that path to victory in 2022, Dan!
Crenshaw wants to lead America on the path to “clean, renewable energy.” The problem with this brilliant GOP plan is that Americans have seen that clean, renewable energy – and they’re horrified by it.
This is the same clean, renewable energy that couldn’t keep the heat on in Texas last winter. It’s the same clean, renewable energy that prevents states like California from keeping the lights and A/C on in the hot summer months. Good grief, 60 people died from the summer heat in Oregon this past weekend – because blue states can’t keep the power on with all of their “clean, renewable energy.”
We’ve now had 40 years of failed doom-and-gloom predictions about global warming (ever since they pivoted away from the looming Ice Age that was going to kill us all). We’ve had failure after failure of the electric grid in states that have stupidly adopted Green Nude Eel electricity boondoggles that DON’T WORK.
No rational person looks at that and thinks, “Gee, I’ll bet the American people want more of THAT! Maybe we can get the price of gas up to $18 a gallon while we’re at it! Victory is ours!”
Aside from the fact that the fantasy windmills and solar panels don’t work as advertised, most Americans and none of the Republican Party’s base believes that global warming is even a thing. We’re woke to the global warming okey-doke scam.
It’s June. Guess what? It’s hot outside right now! Coincidentally, that happens every year and we used to just call it “summer.” But nowadays, the politicians all start squawking at the same time every year about how SUVs and cow farts are burning us all to death.
If you were in charge of the House Republicans and you never wanted to take control of the House again, you couldn’t pick a better issue to support than global warming. Great job, Kevin!
