Sen. Bill Cassidy, RINO-La., must be tired of being in Washington.
That’s the only reason to explain why he followed up his vote to impeach President Donald Trump last month with an absurd claim — on CNN, no less, which is a tell in and of itself — that in order for Republicans to win moving forward, they have to abandon Trump.
Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Cassidy explained the Republican Party faced critical losses under Trump’s leadership.
“Over the last four years, we lost the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the presidency,” Cassidy said. “That has not happened in a single four years under a president since Herbert Hoover.”
Cassidy added that “campaigns are about winning” — and if Republicans want to win in the future, they must look beyond Trump.
In fact, Cassidy said losing will be the result in 2022 and 2024 if Republicans continue to “idolize” Trump.
“If you’re going to win in 2022 and 2024, you have got to speak to voters who didn’t vote for us last time,” Cassidy explained.
“Now, our policies are great. Before the COVID crisis hit, we had record employment for every group, Hispanics, African-Americans, women, the disabled, high school dropouts, veterans, you name it. We had economic policies that were working,” he continued. “So, if that’s the case, and we can speak to those policies, to those families, then we will win.”
“But if we idolize one person, we will lose. And that’s kind of clear from the last election,” Cassidy warned.
Where to begin?
First and foremost, there are reasons Republicans lost ground in some ways over the past few years that have nothing to do with Donald Trump.
The 2020 election was rigged; anyone with a functional brain stem knows that. Time magazine confirmed it (though the magazine spun the rigging as an effort to “save” the election from Trump without ever saying what Trump was supposedly trying to do to ‘steal’ it).
We lost the Senate because 700,000 mostly Republicans who voted in November stayed home during the January runoffs because they believed the process was rigged. That gets fixed in 2022 because Republicans will turn out to send left-wing hack Rafael Warnock packing; that alone will give the GOP back control of the upper chamber and it’ll be Trump-supported candidates who will help win it.
Also, the GOP made gains in the House when they were supposed to lose ground; Trump was responsible because he campaigned for most freshmen who won (oh, and not a single Republican up for reelection lost).
The GOP also gained ground in the states.
On the other hand, Bill Cassidy, once a Democrat until 2001, was rebuked by his own state Republican Party. That, and his timid attempt to justify impeaching Trump last month, will lead to his electoral demise when he’s up again for reelection.
Unfortunately, he just got reelected in November so we’ll have to wait six years — he will hope Louisianans will have forgotten his heresy by then.
He is wrong.
The party of Trump will remind them.
