GOP senator says midterms offer chance to make Biden ‘a one-half-term president’

A Republican senator from Wyoming said in a speech Wednesday that he wants the GOP to “make Joe Biden a one-half-term president” with a stellar performance in the 2022 midterms.

Speaking at a Ripon Society breakfast, Sen. John Barrasso said his goal is to strip Democrats of their control of the House, Senate, and White House — and that starts with victories in the midterm elections next November.

“I’m looking forward to a very successful 2022,” Barrasso told listeners, according to Fox News.

“Mitch McConnell came under a lot of criticism for saying at one point he wanted to make sure that Barack Obama was a one-term president,” he added, referring to the Kentucky Republican who long served as Senate majority leader, until Dems took over this January. “I want to make Joe Biden a one-half-term president,” Barrasso declared. “And I want to do that by making sure they no longer have the House, Senate, and White House.”

“Along for the ride”

Speaking Wednesday, Barrasso also said that even those on the left will admit Dems’ chances of holding the House and Senate are slim looking to next November.

“One of the Democrat senators told me that he said, ‘Look, we can do all this spending and taxes, but we’re going to lose the House or the Senate, or maybe both in two years,'” the Wyoming Republican recalled. “To which [Vermont Sen.] Bernie [Sanders] said, ‘Oh, we’re going to lose them. We’ve got to do everything now. This is our only chance!’”

Barrasso also claimed that President Joe Biden will never veto a bill as long as Dems hold control of both chambers of Congress. Instead, Barrasso charged, Biden will go along with whatever his party establishment tells him to do.

“Joe Biden will never veto a bill. He’ll go down in history as a president who has never vetoed a bill because he will sign whatever Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi put on his desk, period. He’s not going to get anything he doesn’t agree to sign,” the senator said, according to Fox. “He’s just along for the ride right now.”

The GOP’s path to victory

As Barrasso and others in the GOP look to 2022, their path to victory indeed seems to be a viable one. Democrats currently hold only a slim majority in the House, making it all the more difficult for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to hold onto her gavel as each of the lower chamber’s members comes up for re-election next fall.

Meanwhile, the Senate stands at a 50–50 tie between Democrats and Republicans following a runoff election in Georgia in January, and 34 of those 100 seats will be up for grabs in 2022, including 14 currently held by Dems, according to Ballotpedia.

Of course, Democrats will also be fighting hard to hold onto their majority, and big-name lawmakers including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) already facing challenges to their re-election bids.

Only time will tell who claims victory next November, but one thing is for certain: Even with more than a year to go until voters hit the polls, the fight for control in Washington has already begun.

  7. If sufficient fraud is proven in the 2020 election and down ballot race votes were also affected to the point that the House and Senate candidates were fraudulently deprived of their win, those duly elected candidates should be able to take their seats in congress. As those who won through fraud, should not be allowed to continue as they were not elected to represent the voters.
