GOP rift widens amid growing hostility to Afghan refugees

(As one of my LinkedIn bud says, "The hypocrisy of many GOP members is never-ending. While they complained that President Biden did not evacuate our Afghan allies, they now say that America should not welcome those Afghan allies who are finally being evacuated. NIMBY has always been their watchword. (NIMBY = Not In My Back Yard)."

This is why the Trump administration dragged their feet on granting visas.

The Trump administration has been out of office for 7 months. That was plenty of time for the Biden admin to grant VISAs.
Quit trying to shift the blame. If Democrats are going to be in control of the Presidency, House, and Senate you have to take the criticisms as well.

MSG (Join to see) - When did any federal administration do anything quickly?
I do not mind the criticisms. Biden screwed up. But now he is trying to rectify the mistake, with no help from the right.

You've got to be kidding. Democrats control the Presidency, Senate, and House.
Republicans don't control anything.
When Trump was President, he was blamed for everything he did or didn't do. This was even when Democrats controlled the House.
In the case of Afghanistan, the Biden admin had full control of issuing visas, arranging to get US and Afghan civilians out, arranging for an orderly withdrawal and more. They didn't do any of that.
This is all Biden's fault. No one else's

I am not worried!
The mid-terms are not far away and this complicated failure now puts this 2021 Digital Dunkirk of Biden will give the moderate Democrats and independent voters the reason to vote Republican. They made the difference in last election and they'll make a difference again and the Democrats just handed the Republicans a victory. Maybe I'm mistaken but we will know in the first week of November of 2022. I am sure there is a lot of buyer's remorse for voting Democrat. This is no longer the Democratic Party I knew in 1996.

You weren't worried in 2020 either, IIRC. How did that work out for you?

The problem Democrats are facing is they don't have Trump to run against in 2022.
Instead, they have a lot of failed Democrat policies including Afghanistan, Immigration, COVID-19, and the Economy

My hope is that Republicans really use this as the way to win over voters leading into next year's election cycle. There are lots of politicians who NEED to get voted out of their respective offices.

CW2 Michael Bodnar - So long as the GOP remains in Trump's grasp, they will have problems.
