Republican Clown Car 2024

A thread to discuss the entire hypothetical field. Candidates lining up: Trump, Don Jr., Pence, Pompeo, Haley, Cruz, Rubio, Cotton, Noem, Hogan, Hawley, Scott, Scott, Sasse, Christie, Abbott, DeSantis, Ducey, Ricketts. I would add Hurd to this list.

Sasse, who split from Trump in the general & has offered congratulations to Biden, is easily the class of this group. Meaning he’s toast for the Trump Party’s ‘24 nomination.

I think it is impossible to tell right now because we have no way of knowing what is going to be unearthed in the next year or two. While many, many other people want all associated with the current administration jailed, I think it might just behove Biden/Harris to call out the traitors and let them stew in their own juices. *

Especially if there is evidence of malfeasance that ousts Graham and Cruz and a few of the others.

*exception for outright traitors like Ron Johnson and McConnell, etc...

r11, unless Dan Crenshaw runs (...drool...), but I think Dan will just lie low for a few years (possibly shooting for the Senate). Dan's in an awkward place at the moment... too conservative to be a 2020 Democrat, but increasingly disturbed, distressed, and probably more than a little bit disillusioned by the Trumpian Republican Party.

As a Texan from Houston, switching parties would be political suicide for him right now... but the Democrats really ought to be nice to him, because I think he'd be one of the first to switch if he thought he could survive the backlash. He'll never be "progressive", but he's definitely more of a "South Park Republican" than a Trumpian. And smoking hot ;-)

Don't get me wrong... we're never going to see him looking like a leather-clad pirate on a float in the Houston Pride Parade showing off his 6-pack, but he's pretty mellow and tolerant when it comes to gay issues.

Sometimes, you just have to settle for partial non-loss & consider yourself lucky. He's as officially non-anti-gay as Texas voters will allow him to be, and substantially more tolerant in his personal life.

The harsh reality is, Texas isn't a liberal state, has NEVER been one (even when Democrats ran the show there), and won't become one EVEN IF the Republican party implodes and nominal Democrats start winning there.

So, Karl Rove is heading up the Georgia fundraising effort, assisted by Dan Quayle, Chris Christie, Nikki Haley as honorary co-chairs, and also by Nick Ayers, Haley Barbour, and a few other Republican fundraisers.

Two interesting points: 1) Nick Ayers is famous for running the heck away from the Trump Administration, when they were looking to move him into the Chief of Staff position; 2) Christie has announced that he's considering a 2024 run, but Politico only mentioned Nikki Haley as a likely 2024 contender.

Pence could be successful as the anti-Trump Trump.

Why do we care about 2024? First of all, the Republicans themselves are looking ahead. It's fascinating to see them jockeying for position, trying to make a place for themselves in the line-up. Sure, Trump could come back at the last minute and try to blow them up again in the primaries, but that's something they are all aware of - so it will be interesting if they can correct some of their mistakes from 2016. If they want to avoid another 16-candidate slate, there needs to be a couple of front-runners by 2022.

Secondly, the Republicans are at an inflection point - a lot of the old establishment became never-Trumpers and left. It feels like Karl Rove is using the Georgia election as a call-to-arms for the new establishment to coalesce and get everybody back into line. But even if Trump stroked out tomorrow, there's always going to be some conservative commentator willing to stoke the flames. So the new establishment has to figure out how to deal with the crazies - the old crazies were mostly Evangelicals, but the new crazies worship Trump, so throwing them the abortion bone won't work with this group. Over the next four years we're going to see how the Republicans re-form themselves.

Third - the obvious takeaway from the election is that while Trump lost, the Republicans did pretty well for themselves. With Trump out of office, how many of the voters who split their ticket and voted for Biden will go back to the GOP? A lot will depend on how the Biden administration copes with Trump's continued chaos out of office, and a lot will depend on who the Republicans choose to carry their banner in 2024. So we're using this thread to discuss how things are playing out.

I say: bring it on. Along with the indictments against his entire family and everyone Trump-adjacent in the past 4 years.

Donald Trump running as an obese 78-year-old four years from now? Fat chance. He'll be yesterday's news by then.

I think the only thing I want to ever read about Trump or any of the horrible people mentioned is their obituaries if they even rate them after being lined up against a wall and shot. Resist!

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
