Another serious issue the left is being forced to address is their lack of a realistic bench.
While taking pot shots may seem fun to liberals, getting elected should be job #1.
Not only are Democrats fighting against a party with an incumbent president sporting record low unemployment numbers, plus what also now appears to be peace in places like Korea, along with evil doers like isis getting whacked, there are multiple areas where the Democrats are lacking. Here are just three that come to mind.
#1. By nominating numerous far left candidates out of the mainstream for the 2018 general election, Democrats now look to re-create their 2016 drubbing.
#2. A re-hashed candidate list. Pelosi, Schumer and Biden? They’re part of the reason why Mr. Trump won. No wonder Democrat voters aren’t more engaged.
#3. It’s not simply enough to run against something. You guys lack a compelling message in order to gain critical mass beyond radical leftists. The ones you’ve been trying have the lifespan and appeal of a stale bag of fries.June 21, 2018 at 3:25 pm #37680
Prune juice, Herb. It’s what’s for your dinner.June 21, 2018 at 3:28 pm #37681
Also, Herb, you should focus on keeping your own house in order before calling your neighbor’s houses messy.June 21, 2018 at 5:08 pm #37688cbaravelliSpectator
Time Magazine? C’mon, man. Get real. Besides, that issue is moot.
There are moderate Democrat politicians who have character and a resume. But the DNC, like public (and some private) colleges and universities, are so insane it’s stupid. Socialism didn’t appeal to enough national voters. Next time, let’s try Stalinism.
I think herb got most of his points right.June 23, 2018 at 10:05 pm #37754
Andy, you look like a real sheep.
Fake news, buddy.
And the ash heap of history is already piled high with those who discounted Mr. Trump.
I guess in that way, you’re now at the top of that heap.
Nice try, pal.June 23, 2018 at 10:18 pm #37755VitalogyParticipant
So pro-life of you…June 24, 2018 at 2:06 pm #37764
Herb, while you’re at the store picking up another quart of prune juice, pick one up for baravelli while you’re there. WADR, you righties are misinformed, unprincipled, political hypocrites.
Suppose instead of drumpf it was Barack Obama who dodged the draft by getting four college deferments and then insulted American war hero John McCain for getting captured by the enemy.
Suppose, instead of drumpf, it was Obama who threatened to jail his political opponent, encouraged violence against people who opposed his candidacy and implied he might not accept the outcome of the election.
Suppose Obama, instead of drumpf, had refused to release his tax returns and threatened freedom of the press by attacking news organizations that report the truth.
Suppose Obama, instead of drumpf, was president when the racist white nationalists and neo-Nazis converged on Charlottesville, Virginia, and killed a counter-demonstrator and Obama refused to condemn the racists and even said some of them are good people.
Suppose Obama was president and the FBI uncovered a plot by Russian operatives to compromise our election but instead of working with the FBI Obama attacked the FBI, sided with the Russians and even tried to undermine the investigation.
What if Obama, instead of drumpf, was seen on video boasting about sexually assaulting women and saying he can do anything he wants to them including grabbing them by the “expletive”?
What if Obama had paid a porn star $130,000 in hush money to cover up a sexual affair and then lied about it? And if he had used an elaborate system of side payments to conceal an affair with a former Playboy playmate? All while he was married.
What if Obama was caught in over 3,000 lies in his first year as president?
Suppose instead of “draining the swamp” like he promised, Obama assembled the most corrupt administration in modern American history and used his position as president to further enrich himself and his family.
Suppose Obama had filled his administration with former industry lobbyists allowing most of them to regulate the same industries from which they once drew pay checks.
Suppose he appointed wealthy agency heads who proposed big cuts to services ordinary people need while spending millions of taxpayer dollars on themselves.
What if President Obama had tried to undermine the Constitution by attempting to turn the FBI into an agency for his own personal and political use and then fired the agency’s director for refusing to go along with it?
drumpf did all of these things. But the indoctrinated right-wing media pawns and fake Christians who love drumpf’s deplorable corruption and arrogant immorality would scream “lock him up” if it was Obama. Why? Because that’s what right wing media does to people. It turns them into misinformed, unprincipled, political hypocrites.June 25, 2018 at 2:54 pm #37818
Yet you give Hillary a pass.
How hypocritical of you.June 25, 2018 at 3:46 pm #37822
Is that the best you got, Herb? The pass you have given drumpf is neon and glowing. YOU are the real and supersized hypocrite in the conversation and all you can come up with is more “Clinton” rhetoric. Sad state of affairs at Camp Herb today. Almost as sad a state as is the West Wing. The whole world is watching.
