You took the words right out of my mouth. Haha "counterbalance"

Didn't they already try this?

Human decency does not need a "counterbalance".

didn't they already try this with a bunch of cute blond women running for Congress?

Wait until she googles "Mark Meadows, Mick Mulvaney, Jim Jordan, Duncan Hunter Jr." and the rest of the dipshiat Tea Party.

And the first time this woman runs into any member of the squad, they will probably be just as cordial and pleasant as can be to her.  She will be either shocked because she recognizes them, or act all condescending because she doesn't.  In either case, she will look petty and small.
 
2020-11-29 6:06:04 PM  
Again, the conservatives with their zero creativity approach. "Hey, let's rip off what they're doing and put a nice label on it. That'll work for sure."

Is the crazy Q lady from GA going to be part of this? That would be awesome.

So, she means every OTHER Republican woman in Congress?

You don't have to organize, you just need to quicker and have better material, because these women KEEP dunking on you, because they ARE smarter and quicker.

Oooooh, a counterbalance to the "squad". Let me ponder this for a minute...

They already have that group. They just need a name.

I think we just call them Dixie-Cons and be done with it. or maybe Dixie-C*nts?

I was gonna suggest Goring, Goebbels, HImmler, Hess, Von Ribbentrop... but that's shorter.
 
2020-11-29 7:40:03 PM  
Right on cue.  Just like in 2009 the GOP is dealing with the stink and shame of losing by embracing splinter radicals.

Why not just call it the Tea Party 2.0 and be done with it.
 
2020-11-29 7:40:18 PM  
I love how the right has labeled all the minority women in Congress under a group name and now feel the need to form their own group as a way to fight against those minority women. They really are a bunch of racist America-hating cowards.

"We don't believe we should be dismantling the economy. We don't believe we should be destroying free market principles. We don't believe in 'Green New Deal.' We don't believe in packing the courts."

You sure do believe in lying, though, since three of those are completely false.
 
2020-11-29 7:41:10 PM  
I'm sure they will trust each other and never stab one another in the back.
 
2020-11-29 7:41:27 PM  
Naming them is fun, but I'm going to guess their "counterbalance values" are...the GOP's party line? Right?

And they'll do this with some half-assed memes and a cringey livestream?

Because that's what happens every ti mea conservative says "We'll do our OWN, but BETTER, and more CONSERVATIVE, with blackjack and hookers!"
 
2020-11-29 7:42:29 PM  
A group of GOP politicians who will fight to make sure health care is never affordable is already redundant.
 
2020-11-29 7:42:36 PM  
They could call themselves the Sunday tea social. That would fit the modern thinking they espouse
 
2020-11-29 7:42:53 PM  
Lol their "counterbalance" will be 4 white women.

I think there's just a stark contrast between what we're offering and what people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are offering.

There is.  They're offering something for everyone, which includes everyone the Rs want to hurt and keep down.  Something that isn't just for the rich upper class white man.  The fact that you feel that having something for everyone is bad shows the reason why you're an R - you're a bad human being.

"What we stand for are freedom, liberty. We love this nation. We want to see it prevail. We want to see it remain the land of opportunity, what has, in essence, attracted millions of immigrants from around the world, to pursue that American dream," Malliontakis said. "Somebody like me, daughter of a Cuban refugee; I want to be there to be a part of the discussion, debate and provide a counterview."

Given that the Rs have consistently worked against that image (see children in cages, the "Wall"tm and a number of other things) shows that you are either completely stupid or willfully ignorant of what the GOP stand for.

Maliotakis's seat isn't secure. She's already lost it before, I believe. I see this as an effort to increase her stature as much as possible unless she wants to lose again. But then she's a GOP, so of course this is what's happening.
 
2020-11-29 7:46:14 PM  
Nancy Pelosi is the "counterbalance" to the Squad, you're an Affirmative Action checkmark to get more low information voters to support Nazis who call themselves Republicans.  You bring nothing of value to make people's lives in this country, and everything you want makes it demonstrably worse. You are dog shiat on the shoe of this once great nation, and we will all be better off once you are forgotten.

Always nice to know that someone's intent is simply to keep the status quo. . .wait.  That is exactly what the GOP stands for:  "Gallant Old Party."  (not far from the general belief it is "Grand Ol' Party")  It was also interpreted as "Get out and Push", which while sounds better to voters, is not something I see the bulk of the current GOP (or those of the last few decades) doing..

"Opposed to packing the courts".
Has this lady even read a single story on GOP strategy?  It's been a major part of the GOP platform, especially in the past 4 years.  The reason Trump and others didn't lose by a landslide is because they packed the SCOTUS with white supremacist goons.
"Opposed to the green new deal".  As fossil fuel companies go bankrupt and are removed from the DOW, since they can't make money.  Presumably her nationalization plan for obsolete, unprofitable, dirty industries isn't socialism, where free market renewables that are much cleaner and create many many more jobs are not?  How does she plan to sell these products without a law mandating their purchase?  But the ACA is totally wrong because reasons.
Summary: the GOP has no intention to stop putting unqualified morons, grifters, or sociopaths  into high office.  Enjoy the covid red states, the GOP is queuing up the next disaster for ya.

Yeah this will fail utterly and they should be smart enough to not want to set themselves up to look like fools. But you do you conservatives.
 
2020-11-29 7:53:24 PM  
They want healthcare for all...That means you don't.
They want a clean environment...That means you don't.
They want equal justice for all...That means you don't.

And they will fight you in the court of social media. Are you SURE you want this war?
