After an utterly dreadful 2021, conservatives are more than ready for some favorable political developments in 2022.
And, fortunately, some favorable political developments have already emerged in advance of 2022, notably the droves of Democrats signaling their intentions to retire rather than run again for reelection in 2022.
Given that Republicans need only five seats to retake the majority in the House, the announcements regarding several looming Democrat retirements are undoubtedly just the news that beleaguered Americans need before the new year.
CNN, which is normally exceptionally dedicated to bending reality, cannot even hide the truth about Pelosi’s imploding majority, starting off one news article on a melodramatic note, complete with “a growing sense of gloom.”
“There is a growing sense of gloom among Democrats in the House. And every week or so, when another Democratic member of Congress announces they won’t run for reelection in 2022, the mood inside the caucus worsens …
Morale in the House is already markedly low, but as Democrats look ahead to what could become a trying midterm election cycle, the overwhelming belief is that the wave of retirements has yet to crash.” [Source: CNN]
If morale in the House is low among Democrats, one can only imagine how low it must be among Republicans, especially as House Republicans are tasked with dealing with terrible Democrat demands day in and day out.
However, considering that the Democrat Party has effectively been hijacked by the Squad and remains “led” by the likes of Nancy Pelosi, who can really blame multiple Democrat congressmen and congresswomen from becoming a bit tired of swamp theatrics?
After all, a longtime Republican lawmaker in California has observed the reality that has hit many Democrats over the holidays, especially with the Biden administration’s approval ratings spiraling into oblivion.

Congress is especially not that great for individuals who aren’t rabid leftists, such as moderate Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), one of several Democrat representatives who is opting to not seek reelection.
“I’ve decided not to seek another term in Congress. Serving Central Florida has been the honor of my life, but it’s also been incredibly challenging for my family and me … This was not an easy decision, but it is the right decision.” [Source: Fox News]
It’s certainly the right decision when AOC receives more press coverage than just about anyone, rapidly advancing the Democrats’ descent into the swamp.
While Murphy did not openly cite AOC or other characters as part of her decision to retire from Congress, Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL) was far more vocal about the current representation in the House.
“We have got a problem here … There are way too many people serving as members of Congress right now who I not only don’t look up to, I have zero respect for. And I’m saddened to have to say that.” [Source: Fox News]
Wow. It’s quite remarkably that Bustos would go as far as to say she has “zero respect” for multiple colleagues, which further highlights how disastrous these representatives have been for the United States.
Bustos also hails from California, which now holds the dubious honor of losing its first congressional seat in history.
Eric McGhee, a senior fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California, observes that California’s loss of a seat is “remarkable” given its generally “relentless” growth in population.
“It’s certainly a remarkable result given the broader history of the state, which has been just almost relentless population growth …The state has just been booming almost since Day One, so to have it be slowing down this much is really historically unprecedented.” [Source: AP]
McGhee, who studies political redistricting, may find the shift “unprecedented,” though the rapidly declining population of California isn’t terribly “unprecedented” when contemplating the tyrannous reign of Emperor Newsom …
