Marc Thiessen, a conservative pundit for Fox News, blasted Republicans for their underwhelming performances in Tuesday’s midterm election contests.

Anchor Bret Baier asked Thiessen if he thinks that the Pennsylvania Senate race would have resulted in a win by Republican Mehmet Oz rather than Democrat John Fetterman if the candidates’ debate had taken place in September rather than October 25th, when votes were already being cast.

“I think it might have or maybe it wouldn’t have,” Thiessen replied. “There’s a broader issue, which is, think about this. We had the worst inflation in four decades, the worst collapse in real wages in 40 years, the worst crime wave since the 1990s, the worst border crisis in U.S. history.” We have Joe Biden, who is the least popular president since Harry Truman – since presidential polling happened – and there wasn’t a red wave.”

“That is a searing indictment of the Republican Party,” he continued. “That is a searing indictment of the message that we have been sending to the voters. They’ve looked at all of that, and looked at Republican alternative and ‘no thanks.’ That is – the Republican party needs to do a really deep introspection look in the mirror right now because this is an absolute disaster for the Republican Party and we need to turn back.”

  1. He didn’t say a word about Trump? Why is Trump in the headline and in the picture?

    If we want to be real, the fact is Trump got the most votes a sitting president got in history. He surely did a job better than Obama and Bush combined. His complains about the elections are all true, and every republican know it. By any measure his endorsement can only help, that is unless you put in the mix the left’s lies and criminal harassments of him..

    Did you ever hear democrat blaming Obama for Democrat failures? Why isn’t Mitch McConnel being blamed on the left? Why are always conservatives second-guessing a man who proved himself to be a clear success by every measure, and who clearly was unique in that he didn’t join the swamp when he got there like everyone else on both sides?

    The left succeeds in getting into our brains distorting clarity. Yes we should introspect, but for the number one reason I would put not being united with our last president, who was criminally harassed again and again, and we just take it and swallow it…

  2. “This may be the strangest election I’ve ever seen.”

    Steven Moore nailed it on Fox News. Despite 75% of voters saying country is on ‘wrong track’ and majority ‘angry’ about inflation/economy, not a single incumbent governor or senator gets flipped?

    How does that happen? 🤔

  3. So none of these Democrat incumbents lose a governor’s seat or senate seat?

    How does that happen with the most unpopular president in modern times going into a midterm election?

    This just doesn’t happen. At least, until 2020, it didn’t.

  4. You’re looking for what’s to blame? other than something very fishy in our elections – which is surely true, but you want some people to blame?

    McConnell pulled 9M from Blake Masters (who’s running against a Democrat), and sent 9M to Murkowsky (who’s running against a MAGA Republican). It’s him and those like him.

    Try to see if anyone in the Media is saying that…

  5. Issue is that for Trump it’s about Trump and it’s time for him to go. He’s really blown it for himself and all of us. The other issue is that our education system is training camp for the Dem party, so as the seniors die and are replaced by the kids coming out of our schools and colleges, the Republicans won’t stand much of a chance.
