House GOP leaders are warning their rank-and-file members of the potential for heavy midterm losses next year that could cost Republicans their majority.

The warning Tuesday was aimed at encouraging lawmakers to stay focused and not be “chasing all the different other shiny objects” — according to Republican Rep. Mark Walker of North Carolina.

It comes a week ahead of a special election in Georgia, where Democrats are spending heavily to contest what should be a safe Republican seat. …

AP doubling down on the narrative once more. The RINOs want their real party to win, as usual—that being the commie wing of the Uniparty.

“..AP doubling down on the narrative once more...”

Yes, the radical left squirming like the cockroaches they are. Trying to preserve the disastrous socialist power mess they have created.

Boy! Losing the House in 2018 will be just as bad, or even worse, than losing the Presidential election in 2016! /S

Will there be loses in the mid-term? Almost certainly, if history is any predictor. Add to that the ‘leadership’ that McConnell and Paul Ryan are providing and losses are to be expected, some seats in the House but maybe pick up of one or two in the Senate. But will the GOP loose their majority? Not likely.

Or run on repealing it and instead replacing it with a train wreck of your own.

The Republicans in both houses of Congress DO NOT WANT TO BE IN THE MAJORITY because THEY DO NOT WANT THE RESPONSIBILITY of the government’s failure to govern this country under Constitutional law. DRAIN THE DC SWAMP before there is no way for the people to regain control without another hot civil war.

Yeah, just like the Republicans were going to be wiped out when Trump had his catastrophic loss last November…We must remember that the “press” will never stop lying to us. Partisan propagandizing is the only thing they are interested in.

Or not building the wall, or not getting tax reform done, or not taking care of the VA problems, or....

They can all lose their jobs for all I care. They are worthless scumbags.

Both parties are worried that they will lose seats. How can that be bad?

The establishment uniparty is only worried about keeping their seats, not running the country for the benefit of it's citizens.

We need to look at making politics a patriotic calling not a lucrative career.

They will lose because they are LOSERS. They are weak and unprincipled. And they are deceivers and hypocrites.

One thing that should be crystal clear by now is that Republicans don’t represent conservatives in any way, shape or form. Sure, they unleash a torrent of conservative sounding rhetoric before every election but its all vote-getting palaver to fool the base again and again.

The GOP has done absolutely nothing since the election except sit on their hands and recess at every opportunity. A more useless bunch of phonies would be hard to find. We really do need a third party.

I’d rather they go home and stay there until they are needed. They do far less damage in their home district.

Send them home, let them telecommute, away from lobbyists and the subversive Bureaucraps in DC.

“Until they tell the Truth”

They would simply dissolve before that happens.

***********

Their reelection is all that matters. Keep the seat at any cost. Say anything to con the people into voting for you. And never miss an opportunity for a photo op to show the people back home how important you are.

Once they join “the club” they never want to leave. Going back home to a life of anonymity and living amongst the folks who put them there is an abhorrent thought that terrifies them. Once a DC elite, always a DC elite. Being a professional liar pays well.

Anyone who thinks they’re there to represent conservatives is delusional.

If they cared about that, they wouldn’t spew rhetoric like this and would instead continue the winning strategy. They want to be in the minority so they can better serve their real objective, which is the same as the Democrat wing of their beloved Uniparty.
