Waiting for GOP ‘heroes’

By JOHN KANELIS / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein has said that the real “heroes” of the Watergate scandal were the Republicans in Congress who stood up to President Nixon and told him he needed to resign.

Nixon didn’t have the support in Congress to withstand an impeachment accusing him of abuse of power and covering up the scandal that began in 1972 with a “third-rate burglary” of the Democratic National Committee offices at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C. Leaders of the GOP congressional caucus delivered the news to the president.

Looking now at another Republican president seeking to undermine the democratic process that is about to elect Joe Biden as president, one has to wonder if there any GOP heroes left to stand up to Trump.

I fear there are none. I fear they won’t tell Trump to give up a futile and unpatriotic fight that seeks to undermine a free and fair election. I could be wrong; indeed, I am wrong way more than I am right on most matters.

I just want to see and hear a “hero” emerge as they did in 1974 when an earlier president faced certain political doom. Donald Trump’s time as president now appears doomed as well, as Joe Biden inches closer to an Electoral College victory.

Instead we are hearing Trump issue ridiculous and defamatory accusations of conspiracies and “illegal” votes being cast.

Waiting for the heroes to emerge. Are they out there? Anywhere?

  1. Biden may very well win. But your blind if you don’t see something strange going on. Ballot dumps in the middle of the night? virtually all for Biden. Won’t allow poll watchers to actually watch? What are they hiding?

    I’ll say it again, the media constant bashing of Trump and the never ending Dems stating we’ll get rid of Trump no matter what it takes sure gives the American people reason to be skeptical. The left has completely destroyed trust in media and pollsters. There credibility is about gone.

    Imagine how well Trump would have done if he didn’t fight the media and false claims of collusion for the last four years. He made it this close fighting half the country. That doesn’t speak well for the Democrats.

  2. What happened to Trump being so racist? He had the highest non-white vote since 1960. Virtually all of the lefts narratives have been wrong!

  3. It is way too late for any GOP Senator (other than Romney who voted for impeachment) to get off the Trump train. Rubio is trying – but only now that he sees Trump going down. You will see more senators like Rubio do the same thing. I have zero respect for them. And as for Lindsey Graham and his $500,000 contribution to fund Trump’s lawyers – what a joke he is. He showed us his utter lack of character when he reversed course from 2016 and moved to hurry Amy Coney Barrett onto the Supreme Court.
