It made big news the other day when Detroit-area Democrat Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence said that she was not in favor of impeaching the President over the piss-poor testimony from Adam Schiff’s shampeachment hearings. Instead, she believed the House should vote to censure President Trump.
It’s one thing if Democrats from swing districts voice reservations. But Brenda Lawrence is from a solidly safe Democrat seat. And for her to doubt the party line was a big deal.
But Brenda’s moment off the plantation was brief.
As quickly as day turns to night, Brenda Lawrence backtracked and once again began singing from the Shampeachment hymnal.
Gosh. I wonder what happened?
Could it be that Nancy and Adam presented Brenda Lawrence with a quid pro quo?
“Stick to the party line on impeachment or else you’ll face a primary challenger.”
Or “Support impeachment or you won’t get one red cent in campaign funds from the DCCC.”
It would be rather ironic if Brenda Lawrence changed her tune because Nancy and Adam gave her a quid pro quo, wouldn’t it?
Ironic, but hardly surprising.
You’d have to be a halfwit to think there isn’t a hell of a lot of horse trading going on behind closed doors to make sure every House Democrat sticks to the script.
It’s how things work in Washington.
That’s what makes the whole “Impeach the President for quid pro quo” so ridiculous.
Everything is quid pro quo in Washington.
You do this for me, and I’ll do this for you. It’s how the game is played.
This “come to impeachment” moment of Brenda Lawrence was no doubt the result of some kind of quid pro quo.
Let’s face it, Nancy brooks no dissent. Ever.
All of this reminds me of the wheeling and dealing that went on back in 2009 and 2010 to force Obamacare through.
Shaky Democrats, Blue Dog Democrats, pro-life Democrats – those guys were nervous as hell about voting for Obamacare. And the Democrats needed every vote possible to shove that garbage law through. So the quid pro quo kicked into hyperdrive to get it done.
And how did that work out for Speaker Pelosi and the Democrat majority in 2010?
Not good at all.
Nancy may be an expert horse-trader, but forcing every Democrat to fall in line to vote for something the majority of Americans do not want will not end well for her this time either.
