When Republicans fight back.......
washingtonexaminer ^ | 11/14/2019 | Adam Brandon

...In Wednesday’s House Intelligence Committee hearings, rank and file members of the GOP showed some resolve and fought back.....Republicans grew a backbone in the hearing and pushed back against House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff’s impeachment narrative. This is the sort of thing we’ve come to expect from Rep. Jim Jordan, but the fact that Reps. Elise Stefanik and John Ratcliffe also came out swinging speak volumes..... These three are all quite different breeds of Republican....all brought the same level of intensity to a high stakes hearing.

Republicans challenged the Left’s narrative not only on the facts but the process as well. They’ve done good work to expose this investigation as the sham impeachment hearing it really is..... We haven’t seen this sort of energy and poise from Republicans since the Kavanaugh saga.

The conservative base wants Republicans who stand up and don’t back down. It’s why Trump’s approval rating remains so high among conservatives.

Republicans can make it especially tough for Democrats in the 30 or so swing districts — the “dirty thirty” hot seats that went red in 2016 and blue in 2018 ...If Republicans can continue to counter the Left’s narrative in the House, impeachment becomes a losing issue for Democrats heading into 2020.

Kevin McCarthy was fighting back today!

I can’t seem to get the sound now, but damn he was on fire, and just as he was REALLY getting hot, it cut off:(

With any organization, the tone is set at the top. We all knew Ryan was a lilly livered, spineless weasel.

Maybe McCarthy is bringing something else to the table.

There’s an old song called “ You got To Know When To Hold Them and Know When To Fold Them”. Nasty better fold and ante up. She’s playing a losing hand. Maybe poker is just not her game.

Correct, she is playing a loosing hand, but she has the crazy crew looking over her shoulder.

Apparently they never got past Go Fish.

“Kevin McCarthy was fighting back today!”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
That’s great to hear. In years past McCarthy was regarded (and had earned it) as being a squish. Perhaps he was influenced too much by the suishmeister Paul Ryan.

Likely it’s Trump’s example falling on fertile soil. Maybe McCarthy wanted to be a bulldog but was instructed to moderate his tone. Trump has shown all you can punch back, live another day and your base will love you for it.

Kudos!

OHIO PING!

Please let me know if you want on or off the Ohio Ping list.

Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan may well be the greatest gift of Ohio to the Republic since powered flight.
