The Democratic primaries are heating up. One notable feature of the race is the strong presence of progressive candidates — which has many in the establishment wing of the party worried.
Former president Barack Obama, whose moderate vice president Joe Biden is now in the race, recently decried the alleged “purity tests” he saw on the left. Obama worried that an “obsessive” ideological fanaticism was setting the party up for failure.
I want to start a new trend of confronting all the Democratic Presidential contenders who seem to be in the race to stop Bernie Sanders, Here is an example of the message I sent to Seth Moulton.
I want to know who prompted Seth Moulton to get into the race for President. He knows he isn’t going to win. What does he expect to accomplish by being just one more Democratic office holder vying for the nomination? Certainly he has better things to do with his time. I am very suspicious of what is the payoff for him. The reward must be pretty big if he is willing to throw away his credibility just to do this.
We must start taking active measures to let these politicians know that there is a political price to pay for playing this game. We cannot wait to take revenge. We must stop this train wreck from occurring.
The Purity test was, has been, and is being administered by the Party Elite. Bernie would have won, but he wasn’t working for the 1% so… they lied, cheated, obfuscated and stole to take it away and give us Trump
As someone who likes Redacted Tonight and Susan Sarandon and Stephen Cohen, that article boosts my reasoning to support her.
But to the “Maddow is our Megaphone Mouthpiece” insider, corporate, liberal interventionist establishment Democratic Party bubble, she always has been anathema since she spoke against war and against the DNC.
I wonder if “Goofy Grapes” is John F. O’Donnell? He hasn’t been on the show for a long time but is still in the credits. I’ve been wondering what’s going on with him.
Come what may, Tulsi should stick around long enough to get a feel for the lay of the land after Uncle Joe says something stupid, and Gillibrandless, Klobucharred, Beto-and-switch, Bookluster, and half a dozen others flame out.
She gave what I considered to be a contrived answer to Judy Woodruff on the NewsHour Friday when asked about why she isn’t supporting Bernie. Otherwise, she gave a good interview.
And is Maddow relevant beyond an aging cable TV audience drawn to Biden?
I didn’t hear the Newshour interview on Friday. But I’ve heard her answer before and her answers before weren’t contrived sounding to me. She simply said that she’s running because of her concern about these regime change wars she’s against and she chose to run before Bernie did. She didn’t say anything negative about Bernie, even though the interviewer kept fishing to get her too. She talked about why she is running, not why she’s running against Bernie.
