So six Repubs retire prior to the Summer recess and the "liberal" MSM says ...

Last edited Sat Aug 3, 2019, 09:20 AM - Edit history (1)

That they have a conscience

No they are fucking cowards who are exiting prior to taking heat for being cowards.

If they thought they could win their district they would stay.

The shit got waist high and they pulled themselves out and left their constituents.

If they were leaders, if they were Patriots, they would have come out strongly against tRump.

Instead, they are taking the Ryan/Gowdy approach. Slink away, stay silent for a bit, collect a big pay check.

Fuck each and every one of these wimps.

1. Hear, hear!

I keep reading that "it ain't no fun to be in the minority" bullshit.

Maybe if they were "having fun" they shouldn't even be there. They're supposed to be working.

16. They finally figured it out

... they're in the PERMANENT minority. The GOP is shrinking daily by huge numbers, and even Chump's fake rallies can't hide it.

2. Certainly an interesting perspective.........

"I'm going to spend more time with my family" - started by Skippy Ryan, and now getting more traction with others.
So, why ARE they leaving?

1. Can't stand the heat? Come on, they're Pugs - they won in their districts before, even with "one of them" as our President. So why quit now?

2. See the writing on the wall. Wish they'd share that with us. We're sitting here (or marching here) worried that IQ45 will win it all again. What do they know that we don't?

Can we believe them, no matter what they say? Again, look at who their leader is!

As for me, I'm only hoping they know something we don't know - and they have more "faith" in it going against IQ45 than I do.

GET OUT THE VOTE and it won't matter!!!!!

26. As long as he doesn't campaign for Trump

I don‘t care who he votes for.

It‘s maddening wheb people who come across as rational support Trump actively. It gives Trumpanzees a skirt to hide behind. Who cares if Louie Gohmert says he‘ll vote for Trump? Anyone who takes Gohmert as a role model probably walks on four legs already, or never had any to begin with.

29. What a freaking hypocrit this guy Hurd is

He will vote for a guy who discriminates against Hurd's skin color, whose lack of morals and a cosncience has wreaked havoc against people of color.

4. Agreed

First they actively allow Trump to destroy the country, then they do their part to destroy their party.

They’re running scared out of their minds so to hell with their country. Maybe they can live under their beds.

5. Maybe partly because the system sets them up to get a higher paying gig anyway.

They don't see being able to parlay another term into even more riches down the road being in the minority. Add having a tougher and more expensive campaign ahead and they are gittin' while the gittin' is good.

As in they're awake?

Or is the word we're looking for "conscience"?

Everyone knew what the poster meant. I never understood why people do this. Do they think they are doing a public service or is it a little power trip?

Doesn’t hurt to point it out. Now some threads at Kos are unbearable due to the grammar Nazis.

12. They are rats deserting a sinking ship

They're getting out now in hopes that they will be considered too insignificant to share the indictments coming for the big guys.

And they will collect taxpayer paid pensions and health insurance. They sure likes themselves some of that socialism when they are the one who benefit.

14. I'm surprised

Usually a bunch of Retrumplicans retiring would cause the media to do an in-depth analysis of how this shows the Dems are in "disarray" and in "trouble".

27. Many more will follow but,

I expect some will switch party, distancing themselves away from Putin, and red Donnie and child abuse, child trafficking, and corruption. They are now the KGBOP, and they know the shxts about ready to hit the fan for them all after it's exposed the election was stolen by Putin and red Donnie, and they DID conspire to do it. Rats jumping ship now.
