Okay No Moore …

As this blog predicted from the day we asked Roy Moore to get out of the race, the Republicans gave up another sure win seat. You can add Roy Moore’s name to Todd Aiken (Mo.) and every time you see Senator Jones or Senator McCaskill vote “no” you can thank them. Their ego’s cost us all.

Let’s be clear here on who lost. Roy Moore lost.
He was charged with sexual molestation of teen age girls. He denied it, but not very well. His interview with Sean Hannity, and answer to the question, “did you date teenage girls when you were in your 30’s?  was so bad it cost him support. In fact every interview I saw him do was so weak I shook my head.
If he is innocent his inability to articulate a defense was so limited he doesn’t deserve a senate seat. His campaigning was so limited, he took this last weekend off. He went to the Army/Navy Football game. Who would do that and leave the state in a tight race? Meanwhile his opponent was all over the state saying “if you see Roy Moore call me”. His wife’s speech on election eve saying their lawyer “was a jew” to defend another charge was cringe worthy.

Our country is better without Roy Moore in the senate and the Republican Party is better for not standing with him.

As for Senator Jones, he will be in lock step with Schumer and Warren and anti administration. The warning for him is this. You sir will only serve two years, as you fill out the remainder of Jeff Sessions term. I have a feeling your time in office will be short.
Alabama Republicans, here’s some free advice:
Think Mo Brooks and nominate a candidate who will win.

Now Steve Bannon, do you get the message that your far right ideas are out of touch with the party and nation? Yes, you have a base, but so does Bernie on the other end. It’s in the middle with a slight tilt that you win. If you continue to drive primaries against Republicans in that area, and beat them, the party will be permanent minority. Stop.

The hypocrisy of the left will continue. They are now fully against misconduct like this. Well Chuck, Elizabeth, Nancy and Kirsten, some of us were against the Studds, Kennedy’s, Clinton’s and a host of others you supported before you discovered Moore. The difference is we were against Moore too. Your hypocrisy forces us to borrow a Hillary word. Deplorable.

And Then:

Then we have the President. Could he have put a dumber tweet out than the one he with Kirsten Gillibrand? They are clearly setting him up for all kind os sexual charges. All of this turning on their fellow Democrats is related to getting Trump in the spotlight. Megyn Kelly is part of it, as she had another woman on yesterday charging the President. There is a drip, drip, drip underway. So why would he text that message to add fodder to this?  Does he not get it? Is he that easily provoked?

For the first time we think the odds are moving forward to a real attempt to get the President. He and his staff better be alert and preparing a real offense.

What could that me?

The best bet for the President and his team is for Mueller to come back quickly and say there was no collusion. That would give him a platform to call charges ridiculous just like the collusion one. He could paint people as out of touch, just obstructionists and unable to accept election results.
Now we hear yesterday from the Presidents lawyers that Mueller and team are finished talking to the White House staff. If that’s true this may come to a close early in 2018.

Add the stories emerging about the bias of some on the investigative staff and maybe they can mount a counter of worth. The biggest obstacle to doing that would be the President and his inability to control outrageous messages.

The Ratings:

Here are ratings for Friday to Monday. Fox dominates until Monday. We suspect Tuesday’s will also be a toss up as election coverage takes over and the good news for stations like MSNBC and CNN to report the Jones win.

Also the weekly ratings are below as the morning and evening news. Take a look at the surprise in the morning shows.
