The thing I don't understand about Congressional Republicans

Last edited Thu Apr 25, 2019, 09:13 PM - Edit history (2)

trump is bad JuJu, plain and simple. He's toxic to the party and their "brand". A number of them privately despise him, a number of them fear him, but there isn't one of them who wouldn't admit that their jobs would've been a lot easier if he hadn't gotten the nomination.

So it begs the question; Given the breadth of trump's scandalous affairs, his dubious character, his corruption, his recklessness, and his unwillingness to shut up, why don't they cut their losses, help impeach, and just go with Pence? Of course, WE all know that Pence is bad news, but he is indeed more "Their kind" of president. They'd still get their Supreme Court and their vile conservative legislation, and I'm sure he'd be malleable when they need him to be. Why does it not occur to them? Why does that ignorant hairdo have such control over them?

1. it's not him, it's the base

trump controls the deciding portion of gop voters in all states and races. Even romney had to lick trumps ass to win primary in utah and now he is even more of a yes man to him. They are scared of him cause theh canít control him. He communicates directly with the base every day.

2. They're all equally corrupt

and swimming in thinly veiled "NRA contributions".

3. Kompromat. The Steele dossier says Putin gives Trump info to use as leverage against

other people.

Remember how Lindsey Graham did an abrupt 180 after a single private golf game with Trump?

Besides, they're all up to their elbows in rubles.

4. Apostasy would be punished harshly, see Jeff Flake.

Trump is much more popular with these voters than their local congressmen are, they fear primaries.

7. Kompromat.

Putin has provided Turd with reams and reams of Kompromat on every one of them. He can take them out with a tweet.

9. Because treason is a matter of dates

I think they're betting tRump will throw out the rule of law and declare himself king. Once he does, they get to be the new aristocracy for staying loyal through the transition to monarchy. My opinion of them is really that low.
