Make no mistake, McConnell is playing Democrats and using the so-called moderate Republicans as tools. Chai Komanduri, an Obama strategist gets it.
McConnell continuing to prey on Democrat’s bipartisanship deathwish
Former Obama strategist Chai Komanduri appeared with Ari Melber and pointed out quite a few inconvenient truths. Recently, President Biden appeared on the White House lawn with Democratic and Republican Senators to tout a bipartisan infrastructure agreement.
Understand, when it comes to bipartisanship, it generally means Democrats acquiesce to the lowest common denominator, the maximum, which is not much that Republicans will offer. Komanduri said as much when he stated that Donald Trump would have had no problem signing the bipartisanship infrastructure deal (with or without Democrats).
Ari pointed out that Mitch McConnell is happy with Joe Biden because he still believes in the “moderate” mantra. To highlight that, he played a clip where he asked McConnell which of all recent Democratic Presidents would he not mind being on a deserted island with good old Joe.
The Obama strategist had a lot more prescient information. He pointed out why McConnell prefers the Trump Republican over the moderate Republican. He also pointed out the reasons for Republican voter suppression.
We can learn a lot from the video clip. McConnell knows that Democrats continue to play by the rules. He also knows he has no intentions of doing so. As such, he will continue to have the upper hand until Democrats stop bringing a knife to a gunfight. One must ask if that is what they really want to do. I will discuss more of that on Politics Done Right.

It is beginning to be a pain to contribute to the DNC. DCCC, and DSCC when they exhibit their inability to face reality. It seems that they cannot recall the GOP attitude between 2010 and 2021.
On expanding Medicaid:
“Even though my constituents voted for this lie, I’m going to protect them,” he said. “I am proud to stand against the will of the people.”
Justin Hill (R Mo.)
Hill represents the attitude of the Republicans legislators; we will decide what the will of the people should be.
Our only hope at saving the democracy is the Democrat party. If they are unable or un willing to push back against the GOP’s obvious assault on our rights, then we have little choice but to take t to the streets.
