this seems a tell -- McConnell is expecting Trump to lose.


Quote:
Prospects for an economic relief package in the next two weeks dimmed markedly on Tuesday after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) revealed that he has warned the White House not to strike an agreement with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi before the Nov. 3 election.

In remarks at a closed-door Senate GOP lunch, McConnell told his colleagues that Pelosi (D-Calif.) is not negotiating in good faith with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and that any deal they reach could disrupt the Senate’s plans to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court next week. Republicans have voiced concerns that a stimulus deal could splinter the party and exacerbate divisions at a time when they are trying to rally behind the Supreme Court nominee. The comments were confirmed by three people who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss them.

McConnell’s attempted intervention came as Pelosi and Mnuchin continued negotiating over the roughly $2 trillion economic relief package. Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said the “conversation provided more clarity and common ground as they move closer to an agreement.” But no deal can become law without McConnell’s blessing, and his direct warning to the White House imperils the chances of any bill becoming law in the next two weeks.

McConnell told reporters Tuesday that if a deal were reached and passed by the House with President Trump’s support, he would put it on the Senate floor “at some point” — but he did not commit to doing so before the election.

McConnell has not been part of the Pelosi-Mnuchin talks, which have jumped around in chaotic fashion, and had already made his opposition to an enormous new bill clear. Republicans could lose control of the Senate based on the outcome of November’s election, and senators have made clear to the White House that voting on a huge stimulus deal could mean the end of their majority if it scares away fiscally conservative voters. Mnuchin and Pelosi have continued dancing around a deal for weeks, however, particularly amid signs that the economic recovery is weakening markedly.

the plan will be:

1. ACB on SCOTUS no matter what
2. trash what you can of the economy
3. become deficit scolds after 4 years of drunken sailor spending on tax cuts

Woah! 1 hour ago Breaking News CBS

Quote:

"Pope Francis endorsed same-sex civil unions for the first time as pontiff while being interviewed for the feature-length documentary "Francesco," which premiered Wednesday at the Rome Film Festival. The papal thumbs-up came midway through the film that delves into issues Francis cares about most, including the environment, poverty, migration, racial and income inequality and the people most affected by discrimination"
Conservative Catholics are criticizing him already.

Let’s not forget that the ACA is toast in three weeks.

And we’ll hear about the deficits as soon as 11/4, and will be told it’s the reason the government has to be shutdown in December.

I think we’ll see the opposite if Biden takes over, GOP led states will refuse any federal aid. Much like they did with Medicaid expansion.
No chance.

If these past four years has taught us anything it's that most of those bastards are shameless.

There will be a lot of amnesia going around if trump loses.

CNN is showing Obama on a street corner in Philadelphia, using a megaphone. He is doing a drive in campaign speech for Biden tonight.

Many of us here in NYC briefly liked him right after 9-11.
And briefly felt sorry for him after his cancer diagnosis.

But he went back to his mean, and Racist ways
(and became a habitual liar w Drumph) so ...

Hahahahaha, fool! Creep!

Obama gave a great speech!! .
He has this dry ironic wit when he asks certain rhetorical questions, or making what should be matter of fact
statements - but he pitchers his voice into this ironic questioning along with the smile on his face...

I'll have to catch the megaphone part from earlier.

The Rudy story...I'm not surprised, and I'm also going to need a shitton of brain bleach now.

Also, McConnell truly is a slimebag. He cannot leave fast enough, I swear to god.

I was reading some of the quotes from his speech on Twitter and it's amazing. He is just going all in.

This line was sweet and touching...

Quote:
Obama in Philadelphia: "I've got two spectacular daughters who are about as well-informed and conscious and active as just about anybody, as you might imagine they would be, because they've got Michelle Obama as a role model."
Hey, look, everyone, it's a guy who knows how to be respectful of women!

The first 8 years I spent in the US coincided with his 8 years in office, and hearing him makes me so nostalgic for that world.
