    The night the White House went rainbow…I cried. A moment in time when our country did something great. So glad our FLOTUS was there and “escaped” to the outside to share in this moment with Americans. Damn I miss her!

    i doubt that the racist-in-chief is writing his own answer to Special Counsel Mueller’s questions.

    most likely, he is lying, as usual;

    I am still waiting for someone to relate his response ” … I am writing the answers myself, … very easy …” ;

    to that of the member of his household who answered the question about the speech was going to give at the convention by claiming “…. I wrote it myself … it was ….” ;

    and then it ended up being plagiarized from Forever FLOTUS.

    when I saw video of his response being played, I immediately thought of the plagiarism incident ….;

    if only someone could do a side by side comparison of these two dead-enders

    Those were wake up thoughts above…before remembering that in a single county 600 people are missing in the CA fires. So hard to cognize.
    No response is worthy of the suffering to so many.

      That’s great news. Democrats have to focus on winning statewide and local races. No more Kemps and Kobachs!!

    Rep Swalwell on Maher show makes the point about:
    GOP promoting their sorry McCarthy while attempting to con Democrats into firing Pelosi.
    –Hey GOP keep your hair on.
    Nancy the Gavel is #1.

    Didn’t listen to his mouth or look at him, but spotted the creepy lurking shadow of trump on the news, walking around CA with Gavin Newsom, ex-husband of Don Jr.’s current GF.

    Small world … which would be made much better if trump would just go back to NYC … or GITMO. Now.

    Hey, I love “change,” but she’s starting to worry me.

    • November 17, 2018 at 9:34 pm

      What is apparent to me is how much the press focuses on the divides…this is one person…out of how many…my newly minted Congressperson, Madeline Dean has stood up and endorsed Nancy Pelosi for Speaker….no one is running after her to get her opinion….so i say this….this is a press generated story…

      I agree with you Jacqueline. What is this Ocasio-Cortez’s problem? I think she is to full of herself. She is simply a junior house member.

      • 70 jacquelineoboomer
        November 17, 2018 at 11:50 pm

        She has so much to offer … just needs to get on the right track. You can’t “demand” change like this – IMHO – you have to encourage it, get others to go with you down the path (through your leadership skills and presenting the case in a level-headed manner), not insult everybody, stuff like that – maybe even use a little humor. Hoping for the best for her, since she doesn’t seem to mind putting in the work. She’s at the (sorry, gotta resort to a poem!) “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood” stage and just has to pick the right lane to travel. Fingers crossed, since she’s young and has a bright career ahead of her.

      And I am wondering who is feeding her these ideas? What is her overall agenda? Her vision that she is working toward. I never listened to any of her campaign speeches, so I don’t know where she stands on the issues. Think I will check out her website or Ballotpedia to see where she is coming from, who endorsed her, etc.

      • 73 cd4biden
        November 17, 2018 at 10:22 pm

        She is a member of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), a movement with around 43,000 members nationwide. They have an agenda of Medicare for all, strengthening unions, and electing more DSA members to office. Here is a link to an NPR article on her and them.


        The group talks about taking it further than Bernie did, and it looks to me like they are doing just that when it comes to shooting off their mouths and barreling ahead without any planning or interest in working with others. Very Bernie like.

          November 18, 2018 at 12:16 am

          What kills me is most Democrats are for better healthcare available to all, strengthening unions, etc. Why does this group think we’re not? It’s all antagonistic, when it doesn’t have to be.

            November 18, 2018 at 1:17 am

            All I can figure is that they don’t think we take it far enough. They want lots of change, like to do away with capitalism and corporate power. The article above states they want the govt to completely run health care in the country, no private companies involved at all. That’s fine with me. But I don’t see any details of how we are supposed to get there.

            Their comments in the article are really vague. You can’t just wave a magic wand and it changes. You have to develope a plan and a path with steps to move forward with, something people can buy into and go along with to help you get there. This has been one of my main complaints with Bernie, and now it appears this group. He says free health care for all. But he never says how we are supposed to get there, the steps to take to make it so, and you can’t ask them to explain because they get all angry at you. As you said it is all so antagonistic.

              Well said! Hope “some” of this works out, because it’s the same topics year after year, as you know. We’ve got to be smarter than this … obviously, that continues by getting more and more voters out, each cycle, for our Democratic candidates!

      I don’t get any of it. And I sure don’t hang with those people. Keep telling myself that we must remember not every eligible woman (or man) votes. And these awful percentages are only of the women who vote. Yes, I know I’m kidding myself somewhat, but it’s the only way I can get through hearing this b.s. – and I try to do my part to stay involved and also encourage others not to vote for these stupid, hateful people, especially my grandchildren.

    Who is secretary of state in GA? Can’t seem to get answer by Google.

  51. November 18, 2018 at 12:43 am

    I think that perhap some of these candidates were Republicans who could no longer find a place in the GOP…so they ran as a Democrat…

    and this goes for those folks on the left…who are..whatever….but have no party to run on…so they ran as a democrat…

    Time to re-think this BigTent theory

          She’s in an Asian market and she calls that diverse? Why wouldn’t everyone in the market know her? I would like to see her go into a non-Asian area in her district and see if they knew her, not so much. The older Asians are Republican but the next generation, working and taking care of their parents use government services. They don’t want to see that eroded. The adult children have kids of their own to put through school and college. They are smart enough to know what party is the racist party.

    You have to appreciate the Dems sweeping out the Repubs in Orange County California. Orange County is like Palm Beach Florida, the place drips in money and wealth, generational wealth at that. So for the Dems to not only win, but utterly destroy the Republican Party in Orange County is a thing of beauty.
