"Your sucking up is very important to us; please stay on the line to book your reservation"

Politico

According to three people familiar with the planning, Trump will soon begin vetting candidates at Mar-a-Lago who are eager to fulfill his promise to exact vengeance upon incumbent Republicans whove scorned him, and to ensure every open GOP seat in the 2022 midterms has a MAGA-approved contender vying for it.

Trump already has received dozens of requests from prospective candidates seeking to introduce themselves and nab his endorsement, and formal meetings with them could begin as early as March. Now that Trump has survived his second Senate impeachment trial, he has shifted his focus to post-presidential activism a venture mostly bankrolled by his new leadership PAC, Save America, which had $31 million in its coffers at the start of this month.

1. It'll be much easier for any Democrats running to win

The Republican vote will be split and Im sure Democrats from many states will be glad to help a Dem running.

This is good news for us.

5. That's what we said in 2016.

I'm not so confident this time around either.

8. Much has changed in Washington since 2016

and its because Trump was elected. The problem is that its too easy to see bad things than it is to see good ones.

In the Trump midterms there was a record number of wins in the House in which some very active women became Congresswomen as a direct backlash to him, and the Democrats became the majority. These women are now quite active in their leadership which is a rare thing because new elected people usually stay in the background for a few years. These women are front and center now.

In the last election we became the majority in the Senate. We squeaked by but the win is still ours. It changed everything in the Senate. Just unseating McConnell as the leader is a game changer of major proportions. Weve barely been in power for a little tiny bit over a month and already everything is changing.

We have both the House and the Senate and we have a Democratic President. We are getting stronger and the Republicans are falling apart and getting weaker.

So yes, Im optimistic about the next few years. Were in a battle, but as it stands now the Republicans have been stopped. Lets keep fighting to win the next battle and the next one after that.

10. I'm trying to be and remain optimistic about this. Reality keeps interrupting my attempts.

When it is said that we stopped the Republicans. Only by a hair.. we hold the lead by a very narrow margin.

So much more work on so many fronts, and we need to remain vigilant with an understanding that our opponents are at this very moment making every attempt to disregard or upend our victories, by any means necessary.

As evidence by the very fact that CPAC is unabashedly holding an event next week honoring DJT and his accolades in and out of his administration. just as one example. When the Insurrectionist in Chief and his enablers should all be in behind bars this very moment.

Yet they are free to organize and plan for the next one. Only better planned.

We need to be clear eyed about what we are up against. That's all I'm saying.

4. Not wasting any time to go in for the kill.

McConnell better get off his ass and turn in everything he has in his possession on that Con to the FBI and Justice Department quick.

Now is not the time for slow turtle crawling to end this nightmare for the sake of his own skin

9. Trying to get the endorsement of the guy endorsed by Al Qaeda

If you can't make a campaign ad out of that, you shouldn't be running for office.
