Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, September 09, 2018

Sen. Ben Sasse said Sunday morning that he probably thinks about leaving the Republican Party "every morning," while decrying the way he said Republicans and Democrats get caught up in the political furors of the day instead of having a "long-term vision" for the country. Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union," Sasse (R-Neb.) said he considers himself an "independent conservative who caucuses with the Republicans." ... Later, speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press," he said the daily drama coming out of the White House was a "distraction." "I don't have any desire to beat this president up, but it's pretty clear that this White House is a reality-show, soap-opera presidency," he said.

I agree. China is planning 60 years into the future. Our law makers generally don't think past the next election, and Trump can't think past the next 10 minutes.

Sounds like Ben Sasse is a coward that is too afraid to do what he knows is right.

It doesn't matter if Sasse stays in the party or not. His politics are sufficiently regressive that he'd vote with Republicans 99% of the time anyway. For him, leaving the party would be a purely calculated move to further his political future. It would not help any other cause and would not stop the republican agenda.

In his rino mind, he already left. The only thing keeping him is reelection/power desire.

That's the only thing keeping a lot of official Republicans in, maybe most of them.

Such cynicism does not make them RINOs. It makes them Trumpites.

I hate to give them credit but they deserve it for that but only a dictatorship makes that possible. Of course all of the money flowing into elected official's campaigns and pockets and their other personal interests don't help our cause.
