Ex Post Facto: Dems try and moderate
The Democrats are trying to moderate in time for the midterm elections but they are not well-positioned to do so. Their base is fired up against Trump, but the rest of the voters are turned off by the Democrats extreme political views. So if they tone down their rhetoric, the nutters won’t be motivated to show up at the polls, but if they don’t tone it down the rest of the voters won’t show up. What to do?
Here’s Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) trying to skedaddle away from the more extreme elements of the Democrat Party demanding ICE be shut down. “I think what has to change are the policies, and the people that are making these policies are making horrendous decisions like separating kids from their parents,” Klobuchar said. “We are always going to need immigration enforcement, Martha, we know that. We are a major country with major borders.”
Do you think regular people want authorities removing violent illegal aliens from their neighborhoods? I’m betting they do — that’s why all those cities in California are opposing their “sanctuary state.” Mayors, city council members, and sheriffs would all get voted out of office if they let criminal aliens run free to commit crimes.
Sen. Collins making demands on Trump’s future SCOTUS pick
Senator “Olympia” Collins (R-ME) appeared on the Sunday spin shows to let everyone know she won’t support a SCOTUS nominee who would overturn Roe v. Wade.
“A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me, because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don’t want to see a judge have,” Collins said. “That would indicate to me a failure to respect precedent.”
The president’s nominee can’t really answer how he or she would rule on a specific issue since it would preclude the parties in a suit from getting a fair and impartial hearing. Everyone knows that, but Collins is just virtue signalling.
“[Trump] did tell me that he would not be asking that question,” Collins said Sunday. “And indeed it would be inappropriate to ask a judge nominee on how they are going to vote in a future case.”
