"...Republicans to scrap primaries and caucuses as Trump challengers cry foul
The moves, which critics called undemocratic, are the latest illustration of the president's total takeover of the GOP apparatus.

By ALEX ISENSTADT 09/06/2019 05:00 AM EDT
Four states are poised to cancel their 2020 GOP presidential primaries and caucuses, a move that would cut off oxygen to Donald Trumpís long-shot primary challengers.

Republican parties in South Carolina, Nevada, Arizona and Kansas are expected to finalize the cancellations in meetings this weekend, according to three GOP officials who are familiar with the plans...."

Not that any of those guys got a shot but Weld and Sanford both scare him, I think "Gentleman" Joe Walsh is trying to make a comeback using a different approach, go after Trump which will not go over too well with the teabaggers he relied on to be a one term congressman. Walsh wants camera time for himself...

"Teabaggers" didn't have much to do with Walsh's election. Obamacare did.

After that. The congressional districts were gerrymandered by a Democrat state government. Which is what usually happens.

I beg to differ, your types from that disrtict that lets others speak for them (just like you do here) like  Fox teleprompter reading mannequins as well as RxUSH etc and went overboard into the teabagging that they put in a guy that was not reliable with many character flaws that were even exposed before election but those teabags were waved with full steam by then... Those with severe  anger issues do come off as buffoonish and are featured on late night comedy, Walsh was that type. Teabaggers do not screen who they are voting for, they let others do it and all they do is ditto that..
You remind me of Earl on Prozac..... Neither of you come up with your own material, you just puppet it on here...

Wow! You must watch Fox quite a bit. Tell me more.

I let others speak for me? Who?

Again, Illinois was seen as a lost cause. It's a very blue state. A couple of conservative PACs donated to Walsh, but not a lot. There was an anti-Obamacare rebellion going on at the time and that's how Walsh got elected. Your moralistic fair play party gerrymandered the congressional district after his election.

9 things to know about Joe Walsh.

And, then there is the Appalachian Trail to Argentina Sanford. lol  No one is afraid of them.

Spermy Daniels loses her court case, her lawyer is charged with embezzlement and extortion, and you're still running with that one.

Trump hit it, they met up on a couple of other occasions, there is testimony from Cohen and AMI along with copies of signed checks__only total fool would believe otherwise. He also had a lengthy affair with Karen McDougal  while married to Melania and there is plenty of proof in that case as well.

You're starting to remind me of Flacktard

How do you know that? Because they said so? What do the checks mean? Extortion maybe?

The word of a lawyer who is in jail for crimes not associated with Trump and another lawyer charged with embezzlement and extortion have credibility with you?

There are several attorneys involved, AMI's attorneys. Elliot Broidy's attorneys, Spermy Daniels original and present attorney and there are even audio tape recordings of Trump and Cohen discussing payment methods.

Thing is is that Trump had made a previous settlement pledge to Daniels and then in typical Trump fashion reneged, enter Avenatti who brought the national media along.

But feel free to carry on with the Hannity line that suits the low info crowd.

If you're focusing on payments, there's nothing illegal about it unless they're made due to extortion. Congress used to do it with your money. With all of the other efforts to unseat an elected president, it wouldn't surprise me these matters weren't also fabricated.

OK,, so for you anything goes as long as it is "not illegal"?  Really? That is your highest standard?  Yes, of course it is.

The one good thing that trump has done in his whole life is expose the lie of decades of republicans claims of having the moral high ground. --And being concerned about the national debt, and opposing racism, dictators, supporting the COTUS, in short every damn thing the right been claiming. It has all been lies.

Apparently that is congress's standard. The only difference is they did it with your money. I was speaking of the hush money. What was actually done or not done is speculation. My standard is you make an allegation you prove it. That is implied in the 5th amendment. That's a COTUS support. You have the man guilty by gossip. That is not COTUS support.

When did republicans claim to have the moral high ground? There are all kinds of republicans. Conservatives, neoconservatives, the religious right?

Who doesn't oppose racism? You would have to be more specific about supporting COTUS. Right now there are free speech zones in colleges, talk about gun confiscation, and a few more things. One can attempt to ruin a supreme court nominee without any evidence.

Yeah, prove it. Trump hung his political hat on Obama being an illegal and a Muslim and therefore unfit to serve as POTUS. That crap went on for years without an ounce of proof in spite of that both Trump and Joe Arpaio dispatched teams of investigators to Hawaii in search of "proof."

Well guess what?  No proof yet millions of gullible reality show loving Americans, like you, continue to believe that nonsense.

That was all very stupid in my opinion also. One doesn't have to be born in the US to be a natural-born citizen. My sister was born in Germany in a German hospital. What happens if you're born on a ship in international waters? Natural born is someone who didn't go through the naturalization process to become a citizen.  I agree with you on that one.

Also, even if ing born in the US did matter, I believe the mother's presence at birth is required. There is no information, visa or otherwise, Obama's mother was ever in Africa.

Like me? Is that group think again?

Yes, Purplelady, I know being born in the US also makes you a citizen. But, you don't have to be.

So you would support a known baby raper as long as they had not been convicted?  You would maybe hire one to babysit your kids/grandkids?

When did republicans claim to have the moral high ground?  Have you been asleep for the last 30-40 years?

Who doesn't oppose racism? Apparently every republican voter.

I really think you righties have some sort of mental disorder, you folks just don't seem to live in the real world and seem to be able to stare down a tree and swear it is a rock. I don;t think you are all naturally evil but brainwashing works it seems.
 
In my personal life I watch you folks like I would watch a junkie near my wallet, I can no longer trust a rightie for anything but to support the wrong thing and I don't think we have seen how low you will go yet.
