Where the hell are all the Republicans on Capitol Hill?
Have you ever seen or not seen such a bunch of cowardly, spineless front-running, back-pedaling political curs?
The sniveling Beltway GOP is doing their best to MAGA Make America Gutless Again.
You could at least understand their terror if there was even a scintilla, an iota, a shred of evidence that Donald Trump had colluded with the Russians, whatever that means. But there isnt, so why are they cowering in abject fear of the pajama boys in the fake-news media and their Democrat fellow travelers?
The Republicans are all wringing their hands and whimpering how troubled and disturbed and concerned they are by these allegations of what exactly? The solons claim to be hearing echoes of Watergate. Its all the usual suspects John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and now Kelly Ayottes replacement in the RINO chorus line, Ben Sasse of Nebraska.
Most of these people have always hated Trump. They were hoping the summer White House would be reopening next weekend at Walker Point in Kennebunkport. Think Gov. Charlie Baker, that RINOs RINO. Now theyre saying, I told you so. Theyre being quoted (anonymously) in stories with headlines like President Mike Pence, as if the lynch mob would be satisfied with just Trumps scalp.
The few Republicans in Congress who even dare to go in front of a camera call for immediate classified briefings, or they try to issue mealy-mouthed on-the-one-hand-on-the-other-hand statements while quivering in fear.
It may be something very serious, said Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.), or it may be nothing.
Like Inspector Clouseau, he suspects everyone, he suspects no one.
But most of the Republicans are totally MIA, just like they were in October after the Access Hollywood tapes came out. The difference is, back then there was actually something to run from, plus it looked like Trump was going down in a landslide.
But now hes the president. And this scandal is like a political version of the old book, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. If you ever wondered what it was like during the Salem witch trials back in 1692, just turn on CNN or MSNBC.
These Republicans are now declaiming that this special prosecutor will be bipartisan, and that his probe will be over in a matter of months. Are they serious? Look at this guy Robert Mueller. He went to prep school with John Kerry, he was brought to Boston by Bill Weld, he was appointed by a Bush and worked for an Obama.
Totally on the level, in other words.
Let me be the first to say, if you want to hide something real good, just stick it in one of Robert Muellers law books.
The jackals have no evidence even Maxine Waters and Dianne Feinstein have conceded that. James Comey said under oath earlier this month that there had been no interference from the White House. The Democrats just cant accept the fact that they lost the election. Period. They refuse to realize that sometimes, as Shakespeare wrote, the fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves.
Instead, they spin their fantasies. Impeachment, they say, is in the air. Not to mention a whiff of fascism, according to Comrade Chris Matthews.
Yep, theres a whiff of something in the air all right, but it isnt fascism. Just hope I dont get any on my shoe.

We prayed for a man like Donald Trump because the GOPe was our enemy. Calling them spineless avoids the issue. They are our enemy. They aren’t merely timid fellow travelers of ours. They are fellow travelers of the Leftists.
I recently heard Larry Elder say on his show that Thomas Sowell once said that Republicans’ favorite exercise is running for the hills. You can see that he was right.
Perhaps once the voter rolls are cleaned up under Trump with non-citizen, dead, and double voters eliminated, maybe the GOP will grow some backbone.
Every single damn Republican who plays this cowardly game with the media needs to get the message: Stand up and support your leader like men and women. If you have issues, tell the administration, not the fake news media. If you care about the camera lights and staying on the DC cocktail party circuit more than you care about your country, consider yourselves primaried out. We’re taking names and will remember in November. I’d rather be stabbed in the front than stabbed in the back.
A lot of these gutless or Uniparty GOPers are going to be MIA in 2018 as they are swept from office by a combination of disgusted Trump base voters and the Marxist/Socialist Democrats. And when the carnage is over the GOP will blame Trump rather than themselves.
Like we rallied for trump, come election time these nimrods need to be shown the door. Im sick of hearing about Trump and the russians when we all know bill hillary and podesta were the ones dealing with the Russians and making billions at our expense. All the republicans who sit quietly need to go on election day
"Everybody's saying it so it much be true", says the dimwit.
We need to let our anger fuel our efforts to rid ourselves of these traitors in the 2018 primaries and election.
No, they wanted Hillary to win. They prefer a Democrat in the WH so they don't have to actually produce any results, and have someone else to blame. Then the can use the threat of a Democrat WH and congress to scare us into voting for them. Now they want Trump to lose in 2020 so thing can go back to "normal".
The Republicans could unite behind Trump and add to their majorities, with a 60 vote majority in the Senate. Instead they suck up to the Democrats, and they court a bloodbath in 2018 as a result.
Move the Capitol. Senate to Detroit. House to South Side/Chicago. That would solve many issues. No need for term limits.
They’re all tepid.
Where the hell are all the Republicans on Capitol Hill?
Hiding behind their Mommy’s skirts.
Lotsa Lackacajones going around in DC.
