Matt Vespa is the Senior Editor at Townhall. com: There's the HUGE red flag for dems in latest WSJ poll.
The bubble mentality of the Left killed them. Do these people not know that roughly two-thirds of the country are living paycheckto- paycheck and that consumer debt has reached record levels? The suburban mom might be pro-choice, but putting food on the table, having her kids clothed, and keeping a roof over her family’s head is more vital. All three areas are being hammered by inflation that Joe Biden and the Democrats seem incapable of addressing, partially because they don’t care. Inflation has been an issue for months — inaction at this point is either gross incompetence or intentionally dismissive.
Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner: Biden's agenda and the filibuster.
Now, however, Senate Democrats face the prospect of returning to the minority. And — you guessed it — the filibuster will again become good. Democrats will use it to stop the 'radical agenda' of the GOP. It will likely not be a hair-on-fire urgent issue, because Senate Democrats know they have a backstop in the White House, where the Democrat in the Oval Office will veto any unwanted legislation Republicans might improbably get through the Senate. But the filibuster will, once again, be good.
But that is all details. The bottom line is that, as far as the legislation that Biden and Democrats want to pass is concerned, the party will be over.
Tucker Carlson, host of FOX News Channel’s flagship primetime cable news program, Tucker Carlson Tonight: Affirmative action is immoral.
The U.S. military was the single most impressive institution in American life for generations, precisely because it was meritocratic, because people advanced on the basis of individual effort and not on the basis of group interest. It has been completely corrupted in the most recent generation. and that corruption has accelerated under Joe Biden.
The result of that? The Army is now dramatically short of its recruitment goal because nobody, no normal person of any color, wants to join a rigged system. That's the truth. They've wrecked the military with this mind poison, which is evil. It was evil when it was practiced in the South 60 years ago, and it's evil now.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and co-host of The Five: California has a mad man problem.
If Nancy or Gavin had actually listened to our channel, maybe that nut would have already been institutionalized. Maybe there would have been more police, more security. That's all we talk about. That's our wheelhouse.
But no, it's like they only watch CNN and MSNBC or 'The View' where you dispense bad advice like it's fentanyl. So now they can't even be honest about crime when one of their own gets hit with a hammer. But I guess when Democrats play Whac-A-Mole with any speech they don't like, everything looks like a nail.
