I’m Going to Need a Little Bit of That Money Back

Republicans oppose abortion rights in Congress, but Democrats have the chance to codify abortion into federal law when Obama had a 60-vote supermajority in the US Senate. He chose not to do so, saying that it was a low priority. He also made it a low priority to push through his supreme court pick, Merrick Garland, because he assumed that Hillary Clinton would beat Trump.

    Ted! You aren’t being (stamp my pwecious widdle foot) fair!
    Oh, wait. You are. Absolutely. Truly, the democrat capacity for Orwellian self-revision is remarkable. Bring up that 60-seat Senate, and it’s a standard lecture on how he didn’t have the votes. Point out that it’s one of the president’s main jobs to corral his party to get legislation passed and you get an exasperated look. The other day, the New York Times was reporting how Trump’s hold on the Republican Party is fading. Today? A front-page item on how Tuesday’s primaries show that Trump still wields tremendous influence on the G.O.P.
    “Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party/the New York Times/the dnc is always right.” (With apologies to George Orwell.)
    Honest to God, everyone. If you can get out of the United States, you might want to start working on that. I would not want to be here come January 21, 2025, without some sort of exit strategy.
