#1 One of these days Newt is going to be correct

#2 Suppose the GOP does get a landslide? I'm not sure how I feel about that. They were given the House, then the Senate, and then the the presidency and they still were squishy about getting anything done. Their support of Trump has been tepid at best. They always seem to be good at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. They are better than the Dems who I think are completely venal and corruption-ridden. The Dems ought to be prosecuted under Rico Laws. They have tried to steal a country and turn it into a crime-syndicate.

#3 If the Republicans had repealed Obamacare, this would be plausible.

#4 Electing more Tame Republicans would accomplish nothing.

#5 The new guys will be more TEA party than the old hand Republicans and Democrats they’ll be replacing, a good thing, but they will also be inexperienced and therefore less willing to horsetrade to get what they believe is needed, making the House whip’s job even less possible than it is now. Assuming the landslide happens, of course. But if it’s the Democrats who dominate, they will be much harder left than those they replace, and much less likely to horsetrade, etc. The leadership will be tearing out their hair on both sides of the aisle in 2019.

#6 Dealing with Trunks seems to be like herding cats. The only way this would work would be to displacing enough Donks so they wouldn't have a controlling interest.

#7 Dealing with Trunks is easy. Tell them you got elected campaigning on X, Y, and Z so now we expect you to vote for X, Y, and Z or the President may have a discussion with your local papers. They must not be allowed to forget who got them to Washington.
