GOP In-Fighting is Getting Embarrassing

For the longest time, we’d hear about the Democrats fighting within their party. Either it had to do with the “Squad” going too liberal or someone believing that Nancy Pelosi was too old-school.

There were always stories about AOC and Pelosi fighting with one another or someone saying that Bernie Sanders wasn’t the right person to lead the Democrats considering that he’s a socialist.

It was expected. And while all of that happened, the Republican Party grew stronger.

Only, it seems as though the tables have turned. Many are blaming it on the red wave that never truly appeared after the 2022 midterms. And the finger-pointing as to why it didn’t happen is tearing the Party apart.

Mitch McConnell should have made sure that enough money was given to GOP candidates. Kevin McCarthy isn’t trustworthy enough to be the Speaker of the House. Ted Cruz should have stopped Texas from sending immigrants to other parts of the country. The list of those who are “to blame” for one thing or another is getting longer than we can keep track of.

The Republicans are struggling to agree on anything right now, and it’s getting to be quite embarrassing. The omnibus bill passed, which involves trillions of dollars being spent. And it passed with ease because there were enough Republicans willing to sign off on a bill that was plagued with problems. And, they can’t even decide who should be the Speaker of the House. The number of people who don’t want to see McCarthy take over is growing – and if you follow Matt Gaetz on Twitter, every other tweet is about him promoting Jim Jordan for the job.

Obviously, the Republicans have fallen from their high horse. They’ve taken to the ring right alongside the Democrats. Only, instead of fighting the other party, they’re fighting those within their own party.

Is there hope of resolving the issues? Let’s hope so, but it’s not looking too good at the moment.
