Googled and found a couple articles on this. There is definite risks to MBS but this just a convenient excuse IMO.

There's no doubt he is a Jekyll (opening up SA, women's rights, reigning in religious police, modernization etc.) & Hyde (murdering SOB). BTW - I know some here criticize him for Yemen but I lean towards thinking it's one that SA needs to win.

He is effectively a benevolent dictator for life. He's had several years to consolidate his power (e.g. the imprisoning of all those relatives and rich billionaires). If there is one person that can do it, it's him. Definitely risks to him but Iran is the real & present danger, and my guess is Iran can roll over SA without US support.


Somewhat related to our oil dependency, it was reported the Venezuela opposition leader left the country. I really don't get why we did not impact change there at the height of the crisis. Strong and friendly relationship with Venezuela will have helped us significantly in this transitionary time to oil independence (hurry up Elon Musk and like).

Everything's a con.

Can y'all do me a favor?

Next time a major political party/movement runs on the platform that government is not capable of solving problems, could y'all do me a solid and not vote to put them in charge of the government?

Yeah. Biden needs to make this a commercial today and blast it all over Sunday night football and MNF.

Meadows' claim to fame was as chair of the Freedom Caucus. He seems more comfortable in the opposition than in charge.

I wonder if he, personally, has decided that shit's gonna be real bad for the next 5 or so years (a pretty reasonable prediction), and it is better for the GOP to lose bigly in 2020 so it can blame the Dems for everything and come back in 2024/2028.

dola:

Reagan dressing Mondale in a gimp costume and parading him around the country in 1984 was a mere 10 years after Nixon resigning.

People have short memories. Even shorter now than they did in the 70s/80s

If the GOP plans this right, they can easily come back stronger than ever much sooner than you would think.

That thought has occurred to me as well. Obama was punished in 12 for the increase in spending and deficit in 08 that he inherited. Any D is going to be punished for the fallout from the absolute destruction of any sort of fiscal responsibility by trump. The trillion dollar tax cut, followed by a complete clusterfuck of decision making (or lack thereof) will resonate for well over the next 4 years.

It's all the GOP has done for a generation. Yet people keep electing them. They keep talking about how government doesn't work and is the problem - not in the sense of "we have a better way" but in the "so we'll destroy it" way. And people are surprised when they ineptly run it.

SI
