Liddle Bob Corker says GOP becoming somewhat of a Cult in their support of President Trump
Liddle Bob Corker is upset that establishment type politicians are being rejected by the voters. President Trump said when he became the nominee that he was going to “drain the swamp” in Washington. It comes as no surprise that Washington swamp creatures including Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Senator Bob Corker were not happy about the swamp draining talk.
Senator Corker announced last fall he will not be running for re-election. He gave close to the same statement as swamp dweller Paul Ryan. Discussed it with my family and time for me to go.
“After much thought, consideration and family discussion over the past year, (wife) Elizabeth and I have decided that I will leave the United States Senate when my term expires at the end of 2018,” the Tennessee Republican said in a statement.
“When I ran for the Senate in 2006, I told people who I couldn’t imagine serving for more than two terms. Understandably, as we have gained influence, that decision has become more difficult. But I have always been drawn to the citizen legislator model, and while I realize it is not for everyone, I believe with the kind of service I provide, it is the right one for me.
The Liddle Bob Corker “cult” statement comes at the heals of another swamp dweller Representative Mark Stanford of South Carolina losing his Tuesday primary. Stanford blamed the loss on his lack of support for President Trump, which was probably true.
“That’s ultimately what the race devolved down to, which was, was I Trump enough?” Sanford told reporters on Capitol Hill.
“It’s a very tribal environment right now,” he said. “Are you for or against Trump?”
What Liddle Bob Corker is saying is that he is not happy with the success that President Trump is having without the support of swamp dwellers like himself, Mark Sanford and Paul Ryan.
