The Wall Street Journal lead editorial of Friday March 5th seals the political fate of the most dangerous President in our history.
You can read it here, but the Journal’s dismissal of Trump is significant as it asks Trump to embrace reality!
WSJ editorial page smacks former guy again. "In the single Trump term, Republicans lost the House, White House and finally the Senate."
"Losing to Joe Biden … by 7.1 million votes as an incumbent President must be painful. Counseling could be in order." https://t.co/Y2jcuxmYQs

Trump is undoubtedly smart and despite his continued flogging of the Big Lie that the November 3, 2020 election outcome was fraudulent and that he won, he must know that his lying is lying!
Mitch McConnell knew it was politically perfectly safe to say he’d vote for Trump in 2024 if Trump were the GOP nominee for President because that won’t happen as too many others are kissing Trump’s ring to get in line.
Mark carefully those in line names as you would not want any of those echoers of Trumpdum as President.
Biden won’t be perfect but the declining Republican numbers by 2024 will virtually assure a second Biden term even at age 82!
That vital voting rights bill, HR 1, will likely pass using the Nuclear Option. See what that is here:
The “nuclear option” is a last-resort, break-in-case-of-emergency way for the majority party in the Senate to overcome obstruction by the minority.
All it actually involves is changing the rules of the Senate so that a nominee like Gorsuch can be confirmed with a simple majority of 51 votes. Under the previous rules, 60 votes were needed to foil any attempt by the minority party to block a vote by use of the filibuster.
While senators are no longer required to give actual speeches to mount a filibuster, it has remained a powerful tool that allows the minority to gum up action in the Senate until the majority can find 60 votes to break a logjam.
The change to a simple majority vote may not sound very dramatic, but in a place like the Senate, which operates on tradition and bipartisan comity, it’s a big deal befitting its apocalyptic name.
“But no one pushed the proverbial button until 2013, when then-Majority Leader Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option to lower the 60-vote threshold to 51 for approval of Executive Branch appointees…” #TheReidRule https://t.co/a4v34OsFrv

Trump’s Big Lie aftermath is going to be resented by more and more Republicans and former Republicans who at least perceive that it is better to have governing competence over incompetence as starkly reflected in the handling of the pandemic.
Biden’s only task, which is not an inconsequential one, is to keep governing from the middle as the middle is perceived by the vast majority of all Americans!
From the Editorial Board:
Republicans’ rhetoric on H.R. 1 is apocalyptic. Are they that afraid of democracy? https://t.co/yL1xpVxOWM
