If Sanders wins the nomination (not a given but anything's possible), I hope everyone who's telling left-wingers to fall in line for the sake of unity right now will do the same for Sanders. I'm sure that people will totally not find some stupid excuses not to do so at that moment. I'd be happy if Warren or Sanders won the nomination because they are much closer to where the Democratic base is right now in terms of policy.
Being better than Trump is the lowest of bars ever.
Why would they not do the same for Sanders? What is your point here?
No candidate is going to be perfect. That's just a face of life. Yes people can critique and people can discuss their past mistakes but Democrats need to stop doing purity tests with candidates. Republicans voted in a literal rapist while we're over here bitching about a former prosecutor who just wanted to make sure kids were going to school.
We will lose again if we keep acting like asshats.
Well, Donny Deutsch for instance seemed to indicate on Morning Joe that if the Democrats nominate someone who he thinks is a socialist, Donny could see himself voting for Trump....Joe Scarborough of all people had to convince the guy on-air to reconsider that idea and while Donny did sort of realize how bad of a look this was, there is no way of knowing if he actually will not just decide to vote for Trump over Bernie in the end if Bernie is the Democratic candidate. What's more likely is that if Bernie or Warren are the Democratic candidate, guys like Donny will probably vote for Howard Schultz who will make damn sure that their taxes stay low and that corporations will not get challenged in any way ever.
The fact of the matter is that guys like Donny are centrists who care more about their tax rate and their money than the common good. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are not socialists, yet here is Donny floating the idea of voting for a fascist Republican over Democratic socialists who are not even far-left by European standards. The centre would rather have a far-right capitalist than a slightly leftist candidate who is critical of their preferred economic system.
Not wrong at all. It is pretty annoying how our left wing candidates are still not leftist enough.
People caring about the tax rate as if they're going to be millionaires someday is starting to get old. Majority of America will never be rich but they keep voting like they will be.
It's just like I wrote a couple of pages earlier. No matter what they'd have found it wouldn't have changed anything. It was a waste of time and an ammunition for Trump to use in the next election. Before the Dems won the election I was sure Trump wouldn't get reelected, now I'm pretty sure he will be.
Yeah. I’m amazed with how much of an awful job media has done with this. They played themselves, and they got played, too. The report itself was, like, what - over 300 pages long? And such a simplistic summary written by someone like Barr, and everybody just RAN with it, wow. The headlines, everything. No way you can summarize everything that complicated with a simple “no collusion”.
Regardless of what’s in that report, they’ve just given Trump an unlimited amount of ammo. He... might just get re-elected, I’m afraid. Also, people just need to take an L when it’s necessary. IF there was no collusion, instead of doubling down and going so far as to trash and doubt Mueller (talking about all of the “yea but can we really trust him???” comments I saw after people spent so much time basically idolizing him), people should just admitt they might have been wrong, and instead, focus on all of the other investigations that are still on.
