Republican Leadership Facing Vital Decisions

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:21 AM

Trump and his team will fight on while, with time, the lack of Republican support will at some point abandon Trump’s efforts. Go along to get along will return as the Republican mantra. President Trump will fight on for a while as fewer and fewer supporters continue on. President Trump’s supporters will likely continue on with a percentage demanding that he, “never give up, never surrender.” In the end nothing effective is done due to delay of time allowing the ballots to be destroyed as Republicans wring their hands debating their first move.

Now on to the reality we face. The President elect is Joseph Biden with Kamala Harris as his number two. Our main trepidation concerning the new administration revolves around how long before President Biden steps down or is removed from office by any means, normal or atypical, and we inaugurate Kamala Harris as the first black, female President. Currently, we stand with the House of Representatives remaining in Democrat control, though by a slighter margin, and the Senate will remain undecided until the run-off elections are held the first week of January. The Senate races are vitally important as it could provide President Biden and those guiding his administration with both houses of Congress or the Republicans might barely hold on to the Senate forming a block to the most radical ideas of the far left. There exists a third way where, in order to go along to get along, sufficient Republicans in the Senate support all of the Democrat bills and programs in the hope of receiving favors in the future. The Republicans have been hoping for a future which thus far has never materialized.

Reality is that President Trump will almost certainly be leaving office as President Biden will be sworn in late in January. Trump will leave willingly and graciously providing President elect Biden with everything he requests or might need to know. President Trump should also make sure to inform Kamala Harris and their teams all the information given to the President elect. Oh, also, the 2024 race started November 4, 2020, so both parties better get moving and the media sharpening their pencils in order to back their chosen side. Will we see a Trump-Biden or a Harris-Trump race; we cannot know form sure. Were we to pick it would be a Harris-Trump Jr race.

There will be one last and important struggle coming form the heart and soul of the Republican Party between the Trump loyalists and the Republican Party elites who had lost their control. Watch for the Bush-Romney centrists to quietly push for Nikki Haley or similar political insider to the fore to, at the very least, put lipstick on their political piggish list of necessary growth of big government. All stops will be pulled out by the Old Guard of the Republican Party in order to bury Trump as if he were merely a bad dream. Should they succeed, the Republicans will not see the White House for decades or until the Old Guard is replaced. What would be interesting would be if Donald Trump ran as a third party, the Libertarian, Constitution or a new party leading eventually to a realignment of the political field. Whatever the future holds, we hope it will remain interesting and may the fur fly.
