Major is actually the first rescue dog to ever live at the White House.The White House finally has dogs again! Champ and Major have finally been brought to the White House. They could actually be heard barking in the background when President Biden was repealing Trumps discriminatory ban on transgendered serving people in the military. Its so nice to have dogs back in the White House.
To clarify, I'm not arguing otherwise. Being economically centrist and left on social policy makes them center-left overall. However, I suppose one could make the case Democrats are firmly left-wing since social issues are what dominate here.Democrats are centre-left at most.
Can Sherrod Brown occupy both seats? Because that's probably the only way Democrats can flip it.Ohio Senator Rob Portman is not running for re-election.
I think they know that they might have to vote to convict if they go to a trial and they want to avoid pissing off the cult as much as they can.Like I said back during the elections I tend to avoid talking about politics. However, I just read a new story on my email provider that made me very angry and very disappointed in the GOP: they voted to not have the impeachment trial. Are they really THAT stupid? Or does Trump still have that much of a death grip on them that they're too cowardly to stand up to him? I mean, really. I hope this destroys the credibility and trust in the GOP, as they are just spineless jack@$$es who only care about what they want and not what is just and right for the country.

I never said it was justified, I was just saying what they were likely doing.Still doesn't justify the issue. The "cult" is being dealt with by the FBI due to the fact they're flat-out advertising their roles in the riot, so they shouldn't be part of the equation. As a result, it only further makes the GOP more spineless if that's what's restraining them from delivering justice and helping the country heal from the four years of almost irreversible damage that man did.

They might be able to get Richard Burr and Rob Portman as they are not running, and they have nothing to lose from bucking the President.And to the surprise of nobody only 5 GOP senators voted to not dismiss the impeachment trial. Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Ben Sasse, and Pat Toomey all voted to proceed with the trial. If they supported this, its likely they'd vote to convict Trump and ban him from ever running again. Only problem is you still need 12 more Republicans to say yes.
Portman did vote to kill the filibuster on Mayorkas (joined by Shelley Moore Capito and Dan Sullivan, two other no voters on impeachment constitutionality, along with all of the Republicans who did vote yes on the impeachment constitutionality vote with the sole exception of Ben Sasse).I'm not getting my hopes up. They'll definitely Flake.
