Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Thu Jun 27, 2019, 12:37 AM

 

Most of the pundits are wildly off the mark in their assessment of the 2020 election.

They have no idea how irate many of us are. Their drivel is tiring. I don’t want middle of the road solutions. We’ve compromised so much since Reagan, we could be considered Eisenhower republicans in many ways.

3. I agree. It got old really fast when Nicole Wallace started

 

Criticizing all the candidates. I just turned them off when Danny Deutsch insisted that not a single candidate would be able to win against Trump. He made me think he wants and expects another circus like the last election. He must think the only way to deal with Trump is to try to be crazier than Trump. I just turned it off. Pundits can be such a bore!

8. "Let's just identify this for what it is: pure guesswork" Lawrence O'Donnell.

 



And can't forget this one

DEUTSCH: Women want to be her, men want to mate with her. it's as simple as that. ... Men want a sexy woman. Women want to idealize about a sexy woman. She's the perfect age...she's still young enough to have that physical appeal. That's the perfect ingredient to sell a woman in power.

5. Well put! We ARE irate.... and angry, bewildered, frustrated...

 

And we're sick, sick, sick of the Trump show. Come Fall 2020, many Republicans will be sick of him too. It takes the mentally compromised longer to catch up.

6. I Agree With You, And I'm Not That Liberal

 

I agree with you and I’m not that liberal I’m closer to what a Nixon-Ford era moderate Republican used to be.

We Democrats have made so many so-called “middle of the road” compromises with Republican reactionaries that the only way to further “compromise” is to go off the shoulder on the far side and into the ditch.

The pundits don’t get it: we Democrats are very much aware that the opposition isn’t anything like our grandparents’ Republican Party and doesn’t deserve to be treated as such.

Too many people are not factoring that into their thinking of what a "safe" candidate is to beat the GOP

11. I guarantee I will work, donate and vote for whomever our candidate turns out to be.

 

I have preferences, no doubt. That being said. It will not cloud my judgement and clear eyed assessment about the importance of ridding the government of all republicans. They are destroying people and democracy.

It is way too easy to assume your stances are widely held if you only socialize with people with similar views. The same thing happens with conservatives and other extremists

DU represents a niche. It's not representative of Democrats (or liberals, for that matter) in general, nor is it representative of the voting public at large.

I think the majority of the Dem party is to the right of that position now.

Home town. 2016 was heartbreaking, not sure where you’re getting that I knew dump would win. I’m saying the media gave him millions in free air, they also committed journalistic malpractice which continues today.

Eisenhower would be FAR too liberal for modern Repubs.

25. Are they dismissing the significance of the midterms?

 

I think so. They are so determined to create a 'horse race' because it helps their bottom line.

I'm not believing a word of it.
