Let me tell you an interesting story. Back before Obama was elected president, there were around two dozen Blue Dog Democrats.
These were supposedly more conservative leaning Democrats, in mostly Republican areas who got voted into office. However, after Obama won the presidency. These Blue Dog Democrats voted lock step, with other liberal Democrats to help push the Obama, antiAmerican agendas. Then suddenly around the 2010, 2014 and 2016 midterms, all but one, Joe Manchin remained in office. Under Obama, all but one Blue Dog Democrats were voted out of office and replaced by Republicans. Blue dogs became extinct because they backstabbed Republican voters who first put them in office. Let's go into Trump era. Blue dog Democrats are to Republican RINOS, Republicans in Name Only. In other words, most RINOs support Democratic liberal ideologies. The only difference here between Blue dogs and RINOs, Blue dogs betrayed their voters to support an antiAmerican ideologue. Where as, RINOs are not supporting a pro American president or its voters. That is why they are retiring in droves. They don't want to face defeat by more conservative Republicans.
Nope, I don't think Democrats will be replacing RINO's, as Republicans replaced Blue dog Democrats last time around. Moral of the story, Obama killed the Blue dog Democrats to Republicans, and Trump killed the RINO's to more conservative Republicans. Watch the sordid ending to this story in the upcoming midterms.
