In todays and the last few weeks media something has happened….
The supposed internal jocking within the Democratic party factions has carried the media days…
I have pointed out that media DOES tend to like conflict and leans to support lefties…
While Democrats, who NOW haves power in the majority in the House?
Seem to be fighting among themselves, which has the party letting Republicans sit on the side and cheer their the inter party fighting …..
Now here’s more…..
If the Progressive/Left in the Democratic party are gonna fight their own party to get their own way, which COULD cause the party loses in the next Presidential election?….To make them happy right now, but it COULD ALSO HELP the Republicans consolidate their base and DFEAT the very party they belong to, eh?
One thing the Republicans HAVE done under Donald Trump?
They have supported their party positions ….
The GOP lawmakers may know Trump is a knucklehead…
But he’s THEIR knucklehead….
One or two Democrats lawmakers are now pushing House Speaker Pelosi to vote impeachment against Trump?….
There are over 10 investigations going on against ALL things Trump….
WTF would you want to hold impeachment hearings NOW?
With NO WAY the US Senate would sustain an impeachment super majority vote?
WTF would you want to hold an impeachment hand over to the Senate?
Progressive Democrats tend to do well in Blue states and districts….
They cause problems for Democrats that represent in Red states and districts…
Would it be too much for those Progressives and Lefties to make sure they aren’t screwing their fellow Democrats in places that do NOT have their point of view among some of their voters?
Over and OVER here I have repeated that ‘Democrats eat their own’…
Heck….I’m happy my US Senator Gillibrand is uncomfortable right now with here own internal staff problems….
Because she was so hard to push Al Franken out of job, thus screwing her OWN party?
Now she ‘s having her own issues and twisting in the wind…
Democrats need to get their shit together ….
The sweet spot for the ENTIRE party’s effort to get back in the White House (And even the US Senate) is in the MIDDLE….
Hillary Clinton actually came in with almost THREE MILLION MORE votes than Donald J. Trump!
Her problem was WHERE those votes came from….
If the Democrats going ahead show a deafness to deal with THIS?
They are gonna let Donald Trump survive and regain their 2010/2016 majorities..
So how have the Democrats done in positioning the party for next year’s election? Since the midterms, the party has done an abysmal job of making the 2020 contest about Trump.
While it’s true that the old quip “Freshmen in Congress should be seen but not heard” is no longer relevant, Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Tlaib have been unusually vocal and controversial.
Whether it is a proposed “Green New Deal,” criticizing Israel and raising questions about the allegiance of American Jews, or announcing an intention to file an impeachment resolution, the freshman trio have done things to draw attention to themselves and their personal agendas.
The national media, of course, has amplified their statements and agenda, which has taken attention away from Trump.
In baseball terms, Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal (co-sponsored by Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey) is a hanging curveball for the GOP to mash over the fence.
Progressives haven’t worked out the details or the cost of specific steps, allowing Republicans to attack it as a radical, exorbitantly expensive, unrealistic agenda.
Similarly, Omar’s comments about Jews and Israel made her look anti-Semitic, intolerant and radical, undercutting the Democratic argument about Trump’s intolerance and meanness.
Tlaib’s initial steps toward impeachment do what party leaders have been trying to avoid for months — they make the Democrats appear partisan and petty, more interested in destroying Trump than in pursuing policies that are good for the American people.
While Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumertry to define the Democratic Party in broadly appealing terms, thereby keeping the nation’s focus on Trump, the Corbyn wing is more interested in pushing its agenda, which makes it easier for the GOP to turn the 2020 election into a choice, not a referendum…
