    republicans seem pretty worthless right now, they control BOTH house & Senate and are getting basically nothing done.

    Since Trump really isn't a GOPer and he's add odds with legislative GOPers we might see some more switches. It'll get even harder for the GOP if he makes a couple more public deals with the dems. The GOP rank and file have to remember Trump is popular not them they're standing is only a consequence of the the fact the Trump put an R in front of his name.

    The problem for republicans is Trump isn't popular and this is why voters are getting away from the GOP.

    Trump's already starting up deals with Democrats instead of continuing to rely on the Republican morons in congress.

    See, the Democrats have the ability to make deals while the GOP draws a line in the sand and grumbles when their majority can't even decide what they want among themselves. It's the warring factions feuding distasteful Right vs the looney Right, and all of them are out of touch with their base who strangely decided they like some flawed but realistic affordable health care, more than GOP's fantasy health care. Can you imagine? ;)

    DJT is neither a Democrat or Republican. He's an opportunistic jackass.

    It's just a state seat. I'll get a little more excited when it's the House or Senate.

    That may be happening. Rumor has it that Tom Cole may not seek re-election, as well as the fact that there may be a pending lawsuit coming against the Chickasaw and Choctaw Tribes regarding their respective Freedmen, and Markwayne Mullin has been silent on the precedent-setting case that is bringing about the lawsuit against the Chickasaw and Choctaw.

    I'm happy to see a Dem or a Green get a town council seat at this point. That's what the GOP did starting in the 90s, run for dog catcher and parlay it into highway superintendent... school board.. town attorney... state assemblyman... meanwhile the Dems dreamed of a Clinton dynasty.

    And that kind of attitude is why the GOP holds the house. Local elections are where things get done and the state level controls redistricting which allows whoever is in charge of the state legislature to all but appoint their house members.

    That's cute. Today you are an apologist for the democrats. With you, whichever party Trump is leaning towards, that's your party.

    If all we were going to do is this middle ground, bipartisan business, what was the point of the last 8 years?
