I Told You So! As Told by an Atlantic and a FiveThirtyEight Article

I gotta say, I TOLD YOU SO! I TOLD YOU SO!

Why don’t these mo’fo’s read Ye Olde Blogge? If McConnell (R-Diabolical Moron), Ryan (R-Policy Fumbler) had read my posts, oh, let’s say, A Quickie: I Told You So, the Ol’ Pussy Grabber Fights with Everyone, Chaos Resultswhere I predict the difficulty the Ol’ Pussy Grabber having significant difficulty passing his “agenda” or working with Congress or What Now Trump? in which I explain that the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s administration will be like an Andrew Johnson, Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, and Andrew Jackson all rolled into one. All you would have to do is read any of the articles in Diagnosing the Ol’ Pussy Grabber or any of the entries in the Unproductive Malignant Narcissist Watch.

Seriously, you dance with the devil, you can’t bitch when all your ass burns with fire and brimstone. They cannot plead ignorance. Tarnation, you’d have to be a right good idjit not to realize what the Ol’ Pussy Grabber was when you didn’t toss his dumb ass out of the Repube party when he declared!

These folks is just grabbing with both hands, hoping to transfer as much wealth as they can as quickly as they can from the middle class to the upper class the economy be damned. They are authoritarians, they don’t give no shits about democracy. They’d be happy to win every election with 99% of the vote just like every other authoritarian single-party democracies.

The Other Devil’s Bargain

The Republican majorities gambled they could ignore Trump’s misdeeds, and still get him to sign their bills—but it’s not working out as they expected.

 

Norm Ornstein –Monday 21 August 2017
Devil’s Bargain is the title of the best-selling book by Joshua Green about the relationship between Donald Trump and Steve Bannon—a relationship, of course, newly altered. But the Trump-Bannon relationship is not the only, or even the most important, devil’s bargain surrounding Trump—that distinction goes to the odd, strained, and curious relationship between Trump and Republicans in Congress.

It is no secret that the overwhelming majority of Republicans in the House and Senate did not want Trump to be their party’s nominee—he had the fewest endorsements from his party’s members of Congress before the race was settled than any nominee in modern memory. And a large number of GOP legislators were privately appalled as the general election campaign went on. When the Access Hollywood tape emerged, private unease became more public—one of the most vivid examples was Representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah, who told a Utah television station, “I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine. My wife and I, we have a 15-year-old daughter, and if I can’t look her in the eye and tell her these things, I can’t endorse this person.”

Trump Keeps Derailing His Own Agenda

Once again, the president’s efforts to talk about infrastructure collapsed under a mess of his own making.

      Shhh! I’ll tell you a secret, but you gotta promise not to tell anyone. I love the “I told you so’s” even though it is bad. It is annoying that we are in this pickle with the squatter in the WH — I’m not sure we would be in any less of a pickle had the election turned out the other way, though, just a different kind of pickle.

      I’m also not so sure that any of the Repubes in Congress would’ve cared had they known. Wicked villains all, I’m afraid.

      Huzzah!
