Oh, NOW Republicans need us

Republican Governor Doug Ducey of Arizona refused to answer the president’s phone call, and gleefully certified the results of his state’s stolen election. He also cannot wait to install Democrat Mark Kelly to replace Republican Senator Martha McSally, whom the governor appointed but now disses.
USA Today reported, “He went on to explain that the vote certification initiates a time period for legal challenges to the election.
“‘And there is legal action, right now, challenging these results in our state court,’ Ducey said.
“The plaintiffs in that case, brought by Arizona Republican Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward, claim in part that ballots duplicated by poll workers because machines couldn’t read them took votes away from Trump.”
Ducey later slammed Dr. Ward for suing.
In Georgia, Republican Governor Brian Kemp also is aiding and abetting the theft of his state’s 16 electors.
At the same time he is urging voters to vote for Republican senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in the January 5 runoff because we don’t want Democrats to take over the Senate.
He should explain that to his fellow turncoat governor in Arizona. 
Kemp needs to explain what good the Senate is because we had control for 4 years under a Republican president. 
Yes, I am thrilled with the appointment and confirmation of hundreds of conservative judges and three justices. I have written about this regularly throughout President Donald John Trump’s first term.
But a Republican Senate refused to repeal Obamacare.
And a Republican Senate slow-walked President Trump’s appointments of his Cabinet and other department heads.
And a Republican Senate failed to fund construction of a wall that had overwhelming support from Republican voters.
Now having given away Arizona’s two Senate seats to Democrats in the past two years, the establishment expects voters in Georgia to show up on January 5 and save their minority because a Republican Senate under a Democrat president has more power than a Republican minority under a Democrat regime.
Without control of the Senate, Republicans in Washington lose relevance.
Cry me a river.
The same Republicans who often refused to lift a finger for a Republican president will have to sit on their hands for at least 2 years.
Midterms historically favor the party out of power. Party leaders dream of big wins in 2022 that will sweep them into power.
Reality just cleared its voice, and asked what makes them think the election in 2022 won’t be stolen?
The game plan is to fix the broken election system once Donald Trump leaves office. 
But the flaw is Democrats will have no intention of cooperating to make our elections matter again.
If you expect me to make an emotional plea to Georgians to vote for Perdue and Loeffler, you came to the wrong place. 
Stephen Kruiser wrote a nice piece. He calmly said, “The Idiocy of Republicans Boycotting GA Runoffs Has to Stop.”
Plenty of people would agree with him.
He said, “No good can come of either one of these Democrats getting into the United States Senate.”
My question is what good will come from a Republican Senate? They will not slow-walk Xiden (as a reader dubbed him) appointees. They will not stop the bailout of cities that rebelled this summer. They likely will not hoard judgeships this time, certainly not a Supreme Court nomination.
Breitbart reported that Lin Wood is a Democrat. He has pushed to get Republicans to get off their butts in Georgia and stop the steal.
Wayne Dupree ran a column, “Things Blow Up in Breitbart’s Face When They Run a Nasty Hit Piece on Lin Wood.”
He responded by pointing out he voted for Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and both Bushes. Of more importance, he voted for President Trump this year.
Did Bush?
Did Romney?
Did all the other Republican senators?
Andrew Breitbart’s legacy is taking a hit because it is playing to the establishment, not its readers. Lin Wood has done more for President Trump than most Republicans now in the Senate. Trump supporters are not Republican pawns.
Oh, don’t get me wrong. I urge everyone in Georgia to show up, hold their noses, and vote Republican on January 5. Perdue and Loeffler are reliable conservatives.
But make no mistake: I am displeased. Republicans are like Mitt Romney, always there when they need you. Other times, well…
They failed to build the wall.
They failed to repeal Obamacare.
And above all else, they failed to show respect for the Man we elected president. In so doing, they disrespected the people who elected him.
Now they want our help again? I am so glad I live in West Virginia and do not have to vote in the run-off election. Those of you who must have my deepest sympathies.
