Ugh.

Unfortunately, the adults will not be in charge of the purse for the next couple of years. Once again, Democrats have retained the House of Representatives. Sad.

From The Guardian:

Democrats are expected to expand their majority in the House of Representatives by winning several election races on Tuesday night, an expansion that would build on Democrats’ impressive wins in the 2018 midterm elections, when they gained 41 House seats.

The Cook Political Report, which provides non-partisan election and political analysis, predicted on Monday that Democrats will gain between 10 and 15 seats in the House, which has 435 members. “A combination of President Trump’s unpopularity in the suburbs, a fundraising disadvantage, and 32 open seats for the GOP to defend (to Democrats’ dozen) has weighed down Republicans’ prospects,” said David Wasserman, of Cook Political Report.

Democrats currently hold 232 seats, while Republicans have 197. There are five vacancies in the House, and one Libertarian-held seat, CNN said. The GOP would need 218 seats to gain control. Such an upset is exceedingly unlikely.

Across the country, Republican candidates are going after freshman Democrats who won in the 2018 midterms. Meanwhile, Democrats are hoping to land key GOP districts, USA Today explained. Texas, which is an overwhelmingly red state, is key to this battle. Under Wasserman’s analysis, there are six “vulnerable” Republican congressional seats in Texas.

Here’s some random election night thoughts…

Bad news for the country!

Mitch McConnell famously stalled Merrick Garland’s confirmation to the Supreme Court to replace Antonin Scalia during the final year of Barack Obama’s presidency. The gig eventually went to Neil Gorsuch. Now, Garland is set to become attorney general in Joe Biden’s Department of Justice, with great support from…McConnell. From The Hill: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told Politico Tuesday he will back Merrick Garland’s nomination for attorney general. Asked by the publication whether he supported Garland’s nomination, the minority leader replied “I do.” However, the outlet reported that the senator did not elaborate further on his reasoning for the decision.

Press Sec Defends Detainment of Minors at the Border, But Liberals Slammed Trump For It

Funny how that works.

You either have to be very smart to be this stupid, or just…very stupid. When it comes to Jen Psaki and Joe Biden, which is more likely? Anyway, here’s the White House press secretary now pretty much defending “kids in cages” – which, of course, developed during the Obama administration (and is something that President Trump was lambasted over). From Fox News: White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday defended the reopening of a migrant facility at the border for children under the Biden administration, saying it is a “temporary reopening” amid the COVID-19 pandemic as she was pressed on the president’s past comments during the Trump administration on such facilities. Psaki was asked by Fox News why the Biden administration was reopening a facility for migrant children in Texas — considering President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ history railing against facilities for migrant children while Donald Trump was president. She replied that their policy is “not to expel unaccompanied children who arrive at the border.” CONTINUED: “The process, how it works, is that Customs and Border control continue to transfer unaccompanied children to the HHS office of Refugee Resettlement,” Psaki explained, adding that “can take a couple of days.” Psaki said that due to COVID-19 protocols, the social distancing requirements and capacity limits at Refugee Resettlement Shelters have “been significantly reduced, because, of course, you can’t have a child in every bed.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-b-IMwCuA0&feature=emb_title
