Afraid of the base

Roy Blunt (r) [2016 file photo].

On a Sunday gabfest:

Senator Roy Blunt @RoyBlunt
This is a close election. There was no blue wave. There weren’t huge losses for Republican candidates. If there is a mandate, the mandate is for both sides to work together.

Or, a true believer. Or both.

Some of the responses:

Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri: “The president wasn’t defeated by huge numbers, in fact he may not have been defeated at all.”

Blatant lying or completely delusional?

Yes.

Both sides to work together, you say? BOTH sides? So when Mitch starts stonewalling literally every bill and refusing to even hold debates, you’re gonna go to him and say “hey, both sides need to work together?”

Yeah, I thought not. Nice try.

“I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee that says, ‘Fool me once, shame on…shame on you. Fool me…You can’t get fooled again.’”

Define close for me Roy. And both sides cannot work together when one side is a threat to our democracy.

..kinda like you have been so graciously working together with your opponents recently?

Roy, for the sake of the people, I hope both sides do work together, but it’s going to be hard to forget your hypocrisy in all of this.

The GOP hasn’t “worked” or “compromised” with their opponents for almost a decade

Our infrastructure is collapsing, the world is melting, and you want to pretend to be moderate
I’m not buying it

We’re from the SHOW-ME state
and repubs have shown us
their true nature

You lie, whereas the numbers don’t.

That’s not how Republicans have governed for the past four years, Roy. When you have a majority, you force your will on others. When the other side wins, you ask for compromise.

Why am I am not surprised with this BS from Roy? Dude, we’ve watched what you’ve done for the last four years. No where in your oath did you pledge allegiance to party and POTUS. You prostrated yourself at the feet of a mentally unfit toddler. We won’t forget. Justice is coming.

Time to start “working together”

It was your party that got us to 250,000 dead.

I can’t even believe I have to type that.
250,000 !!!!!!

Biden Won. Face Reality.

Merrick Garland.

Also this is much less close than the 2016 election and conservatives said Trump had a mandate from the people.

Math is hard.

Let me guess, first thing is getting that wasteful spending and deficit under control, right?

Like clockwork.

Hypocrite. Blunt said. “The president wasn’t defeated by huge numbers. In fact, he may not have been defeated at all.”

Where was this idea the past four years?

Biden will win the popular vote by more than any Republican has since 1988. If Democrats don’t have a mandate then the Republicans never have.

Shame on you. You had four years to try that, but nope.

Yea let’s work together. So when’s your next public town hall in STL?

Heh.

tell that to Moscow Mitch

And on and on.
