Democrat Excuses

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 13, 2018

         THE MAJOR MEDIA TELL US THAT DEMOCRATS ARE OPTIMISTIC ABOUT WINNING A HOUSE MAJORITY IN THE NOVEMBER ELECTION. WE’VE HEARD THIS BEFORE AND SEEN PREDICTIONS OF DEMOCRAT SUCCESS TURN OUT TO BE UNTRUE.

         NERVOUS DEMOCRATS AREN’T TAKING CHANCES. SOME ARE ALREADY MAKING EXCUSES FOR NOT ACHIEVING THEIR GOALS. SENATOR BILL NELSON, A FLORIDA DEMOCRAT, IS ONE OF THEM. LAST WEEK NELSON SAID THERE IS EVIDENCE THE RUSSIANS ARE ALREADY INTRUDING INTO FLORIDA’S VOTING SYSTEM. STATE ELECTION OFFICIALS, THOUGH, REBUTTED NELSON’S CLAIM, SAYING THEY HAVE RECEIVED “ZERO INFORMATION” ABOUT ANY RUSSIAN ACTIVITY.

         SO IF DEMOCRATS WIN BIG IN NOVEMBER, IT WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE. IT WILL BE A REBUKE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP BY VOTERS. BUT IF DEMOCRATS DO NOT WIN, IT WILL B RUSSIA’S DOING. THAT’S THE WAY THEY PLAY THE GAME. IF CONSERVATIVES AND REPUBLICANS WANT TO KEEP THINGS MOVING FORWARD AS THEY HAVE BEEN, THEY HAD BETTER BE AS ENERGIZED AS THEY WERE IN THE 2016 ELECTION OR SEE ALL OF THE PROGRESS THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN MAKING COME TO A SCREECHING HALT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
