    GOP, home to Trump and tea party, decries Dems’ ‘mob rule’

    In typical conservative hysterics, aimed at drumming up voter support in the upcoming election, republican leadership are predicting "mob rule" by democrats if they re-take either one or both houses of congress.


    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are forecasting nightmarish Democratic “mob rule” to amp up GOP voters for next month’s critical midterm elections, flipping the script from complaints that it’s Trump and the tea party movement who’ve boosted rowdy and divisive tactics to dangerous levels.

    Less than a month from voting in which GOP control of Congress is dangling precariously, Republicans are linking comments and actions by Democratic politicians, raucous protesters opposing Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination and even a gunman who shot targeted GOP lawmakers. The message to Republican voters: Democrats are employing radical tactics that are only growing worse.

    “Only one side was happy to play host to this toxic fringe behavior,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Thursday in the latest GOP attack. “Only one side’s leaders are now openly calling for more of it. They haven’t seen enough. They want more. And I’m afraid this is only Phase One of the meltdown.”

    Republicans are quaking in their boots just with the thought of the democrats reclaiming the house and/or senate and want to instill fear in all American's. Sorry Republicans, no sale.

    The low IQ tRumpkins are buying it.
    Retreating? Hell no, I'm just attacking in a different direction!

    Perhaps a significant change in the demographics of both houses will take some of the bluster out of Trump's sails.

    Confess i'm not picking up on the substance of the outrage here. Seems like pretty basic party politics.

    The GOP has the video footage of the screaming and disruption during both the Kavanaugh hearings and the Senate vote a week or so again. Am guessing the Democrats will be trying to create their own ad images demonizing the GOP.

    Trying to define/paint your political opposition as negatively as possible is straight out of "Politics 101".

    Fully expect the Democrats to take back the HoR. Which is fine with me. There is an amount of upside to gridlock.

    The Senate? Not so much. Think the GOP will hold it's current advantage or possibly even increase it by 1.

    Why do you see the Senate as less vulnerable to electoral change?
