RUSH: Well, that didn’t take long. One week ago, I issued a warning to Chuck-You Schumer and Nancy Pelosi that doing deals with Donald Trump and playing footsie with him, would unhinge their voters. Even more.
Sure enough, Politico just reported that the Democrat base is growing “anxious.” Liberals are seething at the idea of bipartisanship coming to Washington. They want Trump impeached. They don’t want Chuck and Nancy working with him, especially on immigration. Activists are terrified that Schumer and Pelosi will give too much ground in negotiations over the so-called Dreamers.
Far-far-left Congressman Luis Gutiérrez told Politico he loves Pelosi, but he said, “Do I now have to accept border security? Do I now have to put up half a fence? Is it going to have electricity and barbed wire on it?”
Liberals worry that if Pelosi and Schumer, Chuck and Nancy, keep dealing with Trump, it will “normalize” Trump in the eyes of voters right in time for the 2018 elections.
If you’re a moderate who wants everybody in Washington to get along, this might come as a surprise. But hardcore liberals do not want to work with Republicans, they never have, on anything. Ever! They don’t want any stinking bipartisanship. They want to wipe Republicans out. And they hate Trump.
Too bad the Republican establishment never learned that lesson, isnt it?
