.......and yet nobody wants to admit - this really could be an extended run for Trump/Pence.  Dare I say 16 years?

Times are pretty good and getting better.
Unemployment is down, wages are up, the stock markets are running withe bulls and the tax cuts are pretty much paying for themselves.

And yet Trump's approval ratings are in the low 40s with even internal GOP polling showing Pelosi winning the one-on-one contest:

https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/407731-internal-rnc-poll-shows-pelosi-is-more-popular-than-trump

Will the GOP find electoral success after showing they would be willing to cover up any amount of lying and corruption so that they can give the rich unpopular tax cuts (which LOL, no, are not coming close to paying for themselves, just the opposite)  and force through a Supreme Court pick which for the first time in the history of polling on the issue, has more people against his confirmation than for it?

I guess we will get the first signs on that in November, but indications are that they will not.

You do know Pence is in the crosshairs of the Mueller investigation, right?

Pence was brought into the campaign by Paul Manafort. Pence was leader of the transition.

Remember “I plead guilty” Mike Flynn? He was paid $500k to lobby for Turkey while he was advising the Trump campaign without being registered as a foreign agent until January 2017 when he retroactively registered as the agent of a foreign government. Flynn informed the Trump transition's legal team but Pence says that no one told him...

Yeah, but Pence was in charge of the transition.

Pence also claimed he didn’t know until March about Flynn working for Turkey even though the ranking member on Oversight sent Pence a letter in November telling Pence all about the Turkey connection.

As leader of the transition it was Pence’s job to make sure the admin didn’t hire a guy with suspect
ties to foreign governments but no one told him anything. So his defense is he did a shitty job leading the transition?

Pence is neck deep in the shit.

SCOTUS nominees polling status is a reflection of the President.

Republican can yowled Obamacare was “rammed through” thought it really wasn’t. However, if Kavanaugh is confirmed it will be because he was literally rammed through the process.

GOP is losing suburban white women in droves... Trump barely squeaked through the EC with 53% of white women voters.

Until anything happens to either Trump or Pence I'll regard all such thoughts as being the offspring of wishes.

While things certainly don’t look good, no telling where the Mueller investigation goes.

Point is that despite just about everything breaking for the GOP right now they aren’t seeing the benefits.  Instead they have a historically unpopular President and generic Congressional balloting that is giving the Democrats about an 8% advantage.

So what happens when things start to not go well?  The longest run of economic expansion in our history is going to end at some point.  History tells us a world that has been remarkable stable and without crisis over the last few years isn’t going to stay that way.  And history also tells us when faced with a crisis, Trump will fuck it up.  And yeah, there is the “Russia Thing” which despite kiidcarter8’s predictions, is not over…

The GOP will likely get smacked down in November, and even after that have nowhere to go but down.  Predictions of a 16 year Trump-born dynasty?  Let’s just say they are premature.

If you say so.
But since you can’t even see that the tax cuts are paying for themselves you may want to read the latest from the CBO.

I did read the latest, and posted it here.  If you had a comment on an analysis that has the deficit climbing faster than previously predicted, up to $1 Trillion before the end of the year, I don't recall seeing it.

Red doesn't give a damn about deficits.  There's not a Democratic Congress or Democratic President.

I'd suspect that Red cares about the deficit when the GOP is in charge if it gives him a reason to wave his foam finger for Republicans.  And will stay silent on the issue if it doesn't.

I suspect this because of course the deficit is up to $1 Trillion and Red is waving that foam finger anyway.

Wow! Talk about old news. Relax and enjoy the good times. The tax cuts are adding 6 trillion to the GDP in the next decade so there is plenty of time to tackle spending. I’m sure even the economic chowderheads(aka democrats) with their new found zeal over the defecit will have to lead the way.
The rest of us will be grateful that the harebrained desire of Nancy Pelosi to raise taxes will go nowhere.
