Here's why the 2018 Senate election will be crucial for President Trump and his Democratic foes

There are 15 comments on the Los Angeles Times story from Friday Feb 17, titled Here's why the 2018 Senate election will be crucial for President Trump and his Democratic foes. In it, Los Angeles Times reports that:

In the partisan battle zone that is Washington, there is one conquest that could turn the fight decisively in Republicans ' favor: winning 60 seats in the U.S. Senate. With control of the House, a filibuster-proof Senate majority could empower President Trump and his congressional allies to push through legislation and approve high-level appointees, such as Supreme Court nominees, with Democrats in the minority powerless to stop them.

Neither political party understands the electorate they are dealing with today. It isn't the same one they faced for the last 4 generations. They are angry, and hostile, and they don't see President Trump failing. All they see is Democrat Obstruction. They will give him a veto proof Senate, and a stronger House just to prove a point. The Democrats lost over 1,000 seats in the past decade on local, state, and federal levels. Do they really think no one is watching?

The "democratic" Party's leadership is comprised of old White people. While they DO have a second string,it is made up of quasi-socialist minority bigots and self hating White toadies. The mainstay of the Democrats',the Blue Dogs,were either run out or retired when Obama come to power. His influence on the party and it's policies over an 8 year span cost the Dems over 1,000 seats in local,State, and National offices (House and Senate),as well as several Governorships. The new message and ideology of the Alt-left has pushed many old time liberals away from the party. They no longer see the Democrats as the party of and FOR the working middle class. Don't expect their position to change. Also don't expect a rebirth of the Democratic Party. What is left of it will become,like the once powerful KKK,a fringe element with no ties to a major organization. As a least measure for some legitimacy they may merge or ally with the American Communist Party. Meanwhile the old time liberals may form a new separate party to build on or become Independents or Libertarians. Either way Liberalism of the old FDR/Truman mold has become a thing of the past. It has been killed of by it's children......

Democrats have to defend 24 Senate seats in 2018, and President Trump only needs 8 seats to rule the world.

The Democrats today stand for anarchy.
They defy the Federal Government.
They attack the Preaident relentlessly.
They riot, burn buildings and attack citizens.
If they expect Americans to support them, they must change their tactics.

The Democrat Communists have attempted to ruin America by convincing tens of millions of people they are victims, instead of perpetrators of drugs, perversion and degenerate behavior of every sort. Under Democrat Communist imposition of destructive law and regulation, the American people have witnessed the most foul human behaviors validated as normal. This has resulted in more disease, lowered life expectancies and more availability of America's children to sexual deviants and predators. America has had enough. We must continue the political slaughter of Democrat Liberal Communists in the Senate and House and continue exposing their fellow conspirators in the press and media for the scum they are and for what they have done.

LOL...you should never attempt to think.....(smh...lmao)

10 Senate seats that could flip in 2018

It favors Republicans in a big way. The GOP will be defending just eight seats, while Democrats must fight for 23 — plus another two held by independents who caucus with Democrats.

I post the facts about the Democratic Party,it's history and where it's headed,and you get all foamin` at the mouth rabid and sh1t....... It's your ilk that has contributed to and made the Democrats the party it is now. You went to or a going to one of those high priced propaganda centers that pass as "secondary education" where you have what little common sense God ever gave you indoctrinated right outta you. Your libhole Professors took out your brain,passed it around and played with it for a while then gave it back to you all scrambled up to the point you can't tell sh1t from shinola nor your azz from a hole in the ground. Momma always said that we should feel pity in our hearts for those who just can't quite understand reality and have trouble living in the real world.......

Bless your heart.

If the Democrats choose Ellison in the middle of a Muslim war they deserve the consequences, total destruction of their party.

They chose Perez to lead the Democrat party. In 1992 he said the Voter's Act did not apply to white people. He is another one of those creepy people that only sees color. Doesn't matter, the Democrat party is pretty much done as a viable political party. It is only a matter of time now.

I love Democrats, they are so stupid. They want to end gerrymandering. The States draw the districts, and Republicans hold 30 of the 50 statehouses, and almost as many legislatures. They would have been better off choosing Ellison to guide their party then the Obama guy. Trump will dance his way to the Oval again in 2020.
