The Florida Democrats are the party of neoliberal centrists who are supposed to appoint corrupt, uninspiring, corporatist, ex-Republicans that go on to lose to real Republicans.
That's their job. They are good at it.
But someone forgot to tell the voters this time.
Warm greetings, caucus99percent.com, and thanks for having me!
Sorry to stir up the fetid waters of the c99 swamp, but we, c99'ers, are insignificant compared to the huge Potomac Swamp, positioned in the Heart of Darkness, er, Washington, District of Corruption. Now, folks, as Obomber used to say, this is ugly, no matter how you look at it--even in the dark of night. So, while I might later compose some stuff about our Californicated Respresentive Trash, such as Rep. Swalwell (rhymes with "doesn't smell well"). today I shall sing the praises?
It's got to be in the top three ways that Democrats display their hypocrisy.
Republicans have done an embarrassingly poor job at making Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez look bad.
Failing to slander her agenda, they've turned to personal attacks.
I will take American officials arming neonazis in Ukraine (even if I were to accept your characterization, which I do not) over Russians making us NOT arm them every day of the week and twice on Sundays. And I think anyone who wouldn’t should just go ahead and move to Moscow already and let the Americans figure out America for ourselves.
Everywhere you look these days you see worry over how the move to the left by the democrats base will turn off moderates.
The universal consensus remains that you must go to the center.
Funny how that never applies to conservatives.
For decades the attitude for democrats to the left went, "Where else are they going to go?"
Where they went is not to the polls.
Voter turnout ranged between 60% to just 40% on non-presidential elections.
After a socialist candidate won in the Bronx, the news media has spilled a lot of ink about how the Democrats are going too far to the left.
Someone should tell the Democratic Party establishment.
A good example is what happened in Rhode Island this week.
gjohnsit published a nice essay today about the future of the Democratic Party. Briefly discussed is the #Walkaway movement--is it real? Is it Botwork? Is it overly optimistic propaganda from the Repugnants? Yes. All of the above.
It's important to get outside of your own personal bubble sometimes and see what the other side thinks.
No, not what corporate Democrats think, but what the right-wing thinks.
