Midterms Compared To “A Knife Fight In An Alley” By McConnell

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said that in the Senate, November elections will be like “a knife fight in an alley” for Republicans.

McConnell said, “You can’t repeal history, and almost every election two years into any new administration the party of the presidency loses seats. They don’t always lose the body, but almost always loses seats. And so we know that this is going to be a very challenging election on the Senate side.”

He continued, “I’ll just list you a bunch of races that are dead even, Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, Montana, North Dakota, Missouri, Indiana, West Virginia and Florida. All of them too close to call and every one of them like a knife fight in an alley. I mean just a brawl. In every one of those places. I hope when the smoke clears we’ll still have a majority in the Senate.”

When questioned about Ted Cruz’s race,” McConnell added, “I think Ted’s got a competitive race by all indications. We certainly expect to win in Texas but I think he does have a competitive race.”

    The ‘principled’ republicans best heed what he says (he actually got it right for a change!) and take off their kid gloves. The dems have ALWAYS fought dirty and relied on the republicans to be ‘gentlemen’ and play by the rules. It is LONG past time for them to get down and dirty – NOT to cheat like the dems do though, there is never any political goal that is worth that level.
    The other alternative is to just formally surrender to the socialists and close the doors on the noble experiment of a Constitutional Republic.

    Hopefully the ‘dumbocrap’ purge is eminent and will begin on Novembner 6, 2018, at least here in California, where these liberals have done their damndest to turn this once great, clean and prosperous state into their version of a ‘socialist utopia’ Anybody unsure of the ‘dumbocrap’ aka liberal plan for Amnerica, come to California and San Frncisco in particular and see the destruction for your own eyes: crappy and failing infrastructure, crime going through the roof, bums and homeless ‘tent’ encampments everywhere, hoards of illegal chinese’ boat people’ who’ve turned many formee clean and tidy neighborhoods into their verson of china complete with filth, squalor ansd stench, streets reeking with the stench of urine and human feces and littered with used condoms and dirty needles, unaffordable housing and costs of livng, higer and higher taxes from the hard working overburdened taxpayers to pay for all this B******T. God, please educate the voters of America against the danger of the liberals, aka ‘dumbocraps’ before aAmerica becomes a third world nation. if god forbid, the liberals get the Whitte House and the House of Reps, the destruction will be a sure thing. We, the American people can’t allow that to happen under any circumstance. For those still unsur of what’s happening, they’ve been living in the clouds, or living in caves or have had their heads op their asses, pure and simple!

      An addendum; Recently announced, former ‘socialist’ presidential bernie sanders wants to have FREE healthcare for everybody, yes folks,that’s FREE healthcare!. This idiot said big business will foot the bill. This washed up clown thinks the corporatons’ll pay for this, the American people are stupid and don’t know there’s no ‘free lunch’ The corporations will fight this tooth and nail and in the end the middle class Americans. already overtaxed for all the BS ‘socialist’ ‘give aways’ to those here illegally and bums who’ve never paid into the tax pot and think the governmebnt aka the taxpayers owe them a living. In California, governor wannabee gavin ‘giveaway’ ‘twosome’ newsome wants to do th same if eleced next governor. Where does this thievery from the taxpayers and pure out and out idiocy end? Hopefully with the upcoming mid term elections, the voters here are so fed up with higher and higher taxes and begin the ‘dumbocrap’ purge and continue with all future elections until all these no good anti Americans who’s mantra ‘ all for me and F***K everyone else as long as I live my Champagne and caviar ifestyle, have S**T loads of taxpayer funds for all the ‘freebies’ doled out to the constituents thus assuring future ‘dumbocrap’ voters, sit on nmy ass while promoting my own persnal agenda, don’t have to answer to anyone all whiile getting huge paychecks’ are gone for good!
