This typifies the mindset of the pre-Trump Senate who was more than willing to don their kid-gloves while “duking it out” with their Democrat opposition wearing brass knuckles…
Who actually believes that this group has learned anything from the past 4 yrs? It’s back to normal. If the GOP actually had real senators, they all would have openly spoken the name of the supposed whistleblower in a joint statement. That they didn’t, fearing some breaking of precedent, tells me they favor the trappings of government than actually winning. If anything to be learned from the Trump years, is that to be a politician, you have to know how to fight and want to fight for your constituency. Rubio and like-ilk haven’t what it takes to carry the fight.
Look at how President Trump is fighting the most important political fight, in a long line of them, of his short political career. The traditional RINO’s were already in surrender monkey mode the very next day. what they don’t want to understand is that the average GOP/conservative supporter is not willing to go along with them any longer. A Rubicon has been crossed.
He doesn’t get it: Marco Rubio calls Biden national security picks ‘polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline’
Just a few comments on this, as we dangle suspended in the Twilight Zone. Politico published Tuesday on a Marco Rubio tweet about the individuals Joe Biden has listed for his national security team, including Anthony Blinken as secretary of state, Jake Sullivan as national security adviser, and Linda Thomas-Greenfield as U.S. ambassador to the UN.
No one would mistake Rubio’s tweet for an endorsement of Biden’s selections.
Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline
I support American greatness
And I have no interest in returning to the “normal” that left us dependent on China
Trending: Should America probe a potentially fraudulent election after it installs a president — or make sure that it doesn’t?
— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 24, 2020
But it’s not a tweet that frames the issue in the useful light of reality either. Basically, we have to let our minds be ruled by lies to accept the terms of Rubio’s tweet.
I don’t think Rubio means ill here. I do think he can’t really see outside the box. The key phrase is “polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline.”
You could only think these people have been or are going to be “polite and orderly” if you buy the media depiction of them. The media want us to think they’re a “return” to a polite and orderly normal. They’ve been flogging that theme since the Biden team began its announcements.
