      Kamala Harris was right, the Democratic party has for so long taken the black female vote for granted. They only show up in our when they need our help, other than that they are invisible in our communities. Let them take our votes for granted at their own peril.

    Don’t get me started on Joe Biden, for eight goddamn years this guy sat this close to President Obama. And after last night’s debate it’s as if he didn’t learn a goddamn thing about the African American community. I’m sick and tired of his “Uncle Joe” routine, the only thing this guy had to do was to show up and not make a fool out of himself, and he couldn’t even do that. How many fuck-ups is this guy allowed before we come to the conclusion that just maybe being the Vice President is his ceiling? And yes, minor fuck-ups matter, because if he can’t avoid the minor fuck-ups. He won’t be able to avoid the big fuck-ups.

    And “Bootleg,” this guy is touted as the next Obama, give me a fucking break. This guy with his stock photos and bullshit outreach to the black community and his bullshit “Douglas Plan” that he said was backed by 400 black people when in fact a majority of the black people listed didn’t even know what the fuck Bootleg was pushing.

    And Elizabeth Warren and her plan for every damn thing, which by the way has to be reworked because every time a plan of hers is fact-checked it doesn’t pass the smell test. Once again how many times Warren is allowed a do-over? I guess membership has its privileges.

    We are drowning in mediocrity.

    • November 21, 2019 at 12:26 pm

      And then there’s Saint Bernie, who screams and shakes his finger at the clouds and who’s been seriously dissing Democrats his whole life. I am very worried. Very.

      • November 21, 2019 at 12:48 pm

        I think Benie is there to explain the truth about capitalism.
        In my opinion the ultra-rich and oil corporates are planning to ditch the rest of us and leave us to the ravages of climate change, national security be damned.
        Also that if enough chaos is caused, people might lean to authoritarianism (Putin/Bannon plan?).
        Bernie is fearless about giving a wake-up call, and the young people are listening.
        It is urgent that we all listen even if we don’t see him as President, because he is telling the truth.
        Most of us were taken in in by disinformation in 2016 and didn’t understand how important Bernie for a viable future, or any kind of future for the non-wealthy.
        Bernie is playing an important, fearless, and necessary role, and by god i’m grateful to him.

        • November 21, 2019 at 12:58 pm

          Well, we differ. I cannot stand the sight of him. He spent every effort dissing PBO’s entire two terms, undermining his agenda and publicly advocating that PBO be primaried in 2012. He’s not a Democrat, says he would never ever call himself a Democrat but routinely shows up in our party just to take advantage of us and our party structure whenever he feels like it. Then he immediately leaves the party again. He’s a creepy misogynist, doesn’t have a record on much at all after 30 years, treated HRC like dirt and soiled the 2016 DNC along with his arrogant supporters trying to disrupt everything. He does nothing in terms of leadership to model behavior for his fans, who routinely slime and smear women on twitter. I’m tired of his cranky old man routine. I consider the whole corporate/billionaire talking point to be low-hanging fruit and an easy meme that goes nowhere without a majority in Congress. So, yes, we differ.

        • November 21, 2019 at 1:03 pm

          I ALSO detest the way Bernie entirely wrote off the South in 2012, disrespected POC and the issues important to us by focussing on economics rather than address racism. He preferred to choose firebrands Cornell West and Killer Mike, who also smeared PBO every chance they got. No thank you.

        • November 21, 2019 at 4:28 pm

          Am not pulling a lever behind a curtain right now, but stand by what I say.
          Regardless of his appearance, mannerisms, or the bill of goods sold to us by the Russians in the run up to the last election (and I witnessed it when visiting another country) he has a true message and a warning.
          What he says is true, and imo we must hear it and respond like we are on fire.

      There is so much damage to fix from ComradeTang and his Kkklan. We have a deep enough bench that we shouldn’t have to settle for the nice dude who’s heart is in the right place but is a walking gaffe-machine. Not for President. If he’s the nominee, he’ll have my vote, but after this nightmare, I swear I really don’t want 4 years of daily statements from the WH: “The President didn’t really mean what he said… He really meant blah, blah, blah… Oh y’all know what he meant.” [Sigh!]

    Something crooked no doubt

    • November 21, 2019 at 12:40 pm

      One opinion is that Pompeo will be resigning. So this may be orange man dangling a Secretary of State carrot to get Romney to support him in this impeachment.

      If he feels a need to bribe so as to guarantee that he won’t be convicted, maybe (hopefully) the Senate isn’t as much a certainty for him as we are being led to believe.

      AND if he is dangling that carrot, isn’t that another example of obstruction?

      • 39 99ts
        November 21, 2019 at 5:48 pm

        I think Romney might be slightly smarter than to give up a 6 year sinecure for a job that won’t last more than a few months.

        • November 22, 2019 at 7:04 am

          We can only hope. But we’ve also thought a lot of people were smarter than their actions have shown us. The fact that — as far as I can see — NO republicans seem to think 45’s actions are impeachable, much less enough to remove him from office, says a lot.

            November 22, 2019 at 9:04 pm

            Difference between supporting trump & denying he is impeachable, to giving up your current job to work for someone who
            a) may not be president* for very long
            b) who is more than likely to fire you within 12 months.

    It is pretty much a given that the Republicans, in their quest to protect the orange man, have taken on the role of the see no evil/hear no evil monkeys. But after listening to the opening statements and testimonies Fiona Hill and David Holmes, it is downright scary that the Republicans are willing to ignore the information that’s being provided regarding Russia. Republicans prefer to continue putting our national security at risk by ignoring our intelligence community and our foreign policy experts. Beyond election interference, they are allowing Russia — i.e., Putin — to totally manipulate their party. I truly hope that US citizens are paying attention; especially as it may come down to the 2020 election to get PP and his imps in Congress out of office.

    It seems evident that the Republicans think the only problem is the “Whistleblower “ since if Trump was not called out for wrong doing the wrong doing would just continue on which seems would be perfectly fine with them.

    He unwavering, the hours grueling, Chairman Schiff’s remarks throughout were insightful, moving + must-see.
    Paraphrasing a few lines: “In terms of Nixon and Trump this is far more serious – withholding military aid to an
    ally at war…This is not Nixon. And it is not that Congress, but this one.”
    —Isn’t this the first presidential impeachment inquiry to focus on U.S. foreign policy? Trump set up an irregular rogue foreign policy headed up by Giuliani to benefit his boss politically, and all the witnesses agreed.

      Cowards is right. The children are willing to do the bidding of the playground bully rather than follow the rules. They are willing to put their reputations at risk to benefit someone who has no care about what it is costing them and will throw them to the curb when their usefulness to him expires. Rather than pay attention to what is in front of them, they’d rather close their eyes, stick their fingers in their ears and sing “la-la-la; I can’t hear you”.

      I’m still trying to understand why they can’t come together and collectively do what is necessary — what they SHOULD be doing anyway — to get rid of someone they claim not to like in the first place.

      I’m not even sure if it’s party over country anymore (many republicans say they don’t recognize the party anymore), or if it’s a matter of self-service/self-preservation. Putin’s hand is far-reaching.

    Stephen Colbert’s show last night – he said / implied that Lindsay Graham’s ba*ls were removed (I can’t recall the exact words now), Graham is starting an investigation on the Bidens.

    I wish the MSM could keep highlighting everything the Trump kids are into. Keep stories of them on the front burner. I mean – surely no one is believing that they are not milking whatever they can, wasn’t there also stories of Kush and his back channels during the transition?
