Featured Image: Into the Georgia political tunnel we go
[ Editor’s Note: Georgia is going to be a raucous GOP primary battle, and somewhat of a circus with Trump dissing Brian Kemp with his remark that Democrat Stacey Abrams might be better as governor. It was a stupid thing to say, but Trump was made for such utterances.
Careful what you wish for Mr. Disgraced former president, as you just might get it. Being the uber Republican political terrorist is not leadership. And the long stream of gangster/mob tactics by you are going to be revealed by the end of the Spring, with enough time to let the air out of the tires for Republican political efforts.
The Republican party’s effective endorsement of the Steal and fully supporting the Insurrection was a political act of war. I am still wondering why they think they can be voted back into power by kissing off the independents.
Ah yes, there has been virtually no media on their thinking over the last few months. No one is wanting to spend the money to even poll them.
One reason might be that they surely will not be voting for Republicans who are lying when they claim 2020 was stolen and neither will they want to support a party all onboard the January 6 Insurrection.
Raffensperger’s book and its timing was a good idea. He will stand alone and be a contrast to the rest of the Republican grovelers. He might not win in 2022, but he will still have a future. A lot of Republicans, including current ones in Congress may not have a political future when the January 6 committee and DoJ are done with them… Jim W. Dean ]

Donald Trump never wastes an opportunity to attack Georgia’s top statewide Republican officeholders for failing to help him overturn the 2020 election results in the key swing state. Brad Raffensperger is the only one who refuses to shut up and take it.
…“We’re out there setting the record straight. No. 1 is that President Trump did not carry the state of Georgia,” Raffensperger told POLITICO, pointing to multiple recounts, reviews and investigations that confirmed the accuracy of the Georgia results.
…As a result, Trump has showered him with criticism for nearly a year, going so far as to call Raffensperger an “enemy of the people.”
…Next month he’ll publish a book called “Integrity Counts,” billed by Simon & Schuster as Raffensperger’s “inspiring story of commitment to the integrity of American democracy.”
…“It’s a conundrum on how to respond to some statements [from Trump] when they’re over the top, or they’re said pejoratively,” Raffensperger said. “If the former president has endorsed Stacey Abrams, I would think that would be shocking for most Republicans. ”
…“The last internal poll I saw said that 87 percent of Republican primary voters felt like the election was stolen,” said former Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.). “With those kinds of numbers, I don’t see Brad getting through the primary.”

“In a party where Trump’s enemies tend to see their political careers abruptly ended, Raffensperger’s approach is being closely watched by Republicans within the state and outside.” https://t.co/HSy0KLx5L4
