Oh my God, what if things stay the same as they have been?
“Can you imagine if we don’t get a Senate majority what this president will do in the remaining two years of his term?,” Tillis told about 300 of his supporters Saturday evening in a high school cafeteria.
“He will pack the federal courts with the most liberal activist judges you’ve ever seen. He will sign an executive order granting amnesty, threatening the American workers and threatening our safety and security. He will fail to stand up to Iran, he will fail to stand up to ISIS. And our country will be less safe and secure than he found it. It already is ladies and gentlemen. That’s why I’m running for Senate.”
This is almost as stupid as some of the online ads I've seen from Neocon John Bolton: "Do you want to see a Democrat-controlled Senate?" No doubt there's a startling percentage of the electorate who have no idea the Dems have already controlled the Senate for several years, but the other 82% should see the logical misstep in this claim. First off, Republicans don't need a Senate majority to block the nominations of judges, they've already done that with gusto. And second, a President facing two hostile Houses of Congress is more likely to increase Executive Orders than if he's only facing one. And lastly, Tillis is on record (more than once) demonstrating he has absolutely no idea what he would do about ISIS, which translates to siding with McCain and other war-mongers by putting tens of thousands of boots back on the ground in Iraq. Something I believe most North Carolinians don't want.
