Enlighten me, I honestly do not see it. What good was this? Why am I going to be glad one day?
The thrust of your postings in this matter suggest strongly that you believe there is even the option
not to engage. This is obviously and patently false.
If you find her ripping some papers to be over the top, that is your prerogative. But you should understand that she cannot, in any reality, be seen to be supportive of that guy's abject villainy. Not if she wants to be re-elected. How ever you feel about that, it was
the smartest thing to do.
The thing that will make you glad is the fact there were enough people not to take this problem lying down. Being the 'Better Party' makes for a nice soundbite, but that really is the end of it. 'Better' people are also better at losing elections.
So there is a lot of heavy lifting to be done, and yes, a lot of that will
get dirty. I understand that you only wish to focus on 'governing', but that is a level of wishful thinking that approaches willful fantasy. If that is your wish, so be it; it is certainly not my job to fix that for you. But to be clear, cloaking cowardice and intellectual laziness in principal will not solve a thing.
I do not intend to be disrespectful, but you should be made aware that is
the message you are sending.
I'll be glad if the Democrats don't blow another election, I don't think this whole strategy of "enough is enough! Let's fight Trump at his own game and act petty too!" is gonna help much. Truth be told, what she did isn't the worst thing in the world, but whining to Twitter and FB? Give it a rest and govern, please
You are conflating the concepts of petty
. While there is a small overlap, that Venn Diagram is largely exclusive WRT those two items. Relating to this, it was well known that FB & Twitter will not remove these things. But if she were to take a lazier path, that does nothing to inspire voters. Now she has done this, she can make the appeal that she is doing something, and return the negative focus where it belongs.
It is important to remember that in Politics, success is not required for success. You will understand this.
As for the election, buckle up. After the primaries, there will
be a lot of Anti-trump being put out as a message. Especially if we end with Bloomberg or Biden, who are fairly illiberal as Democrats go, anyway. This is an important function for three reasons.
A. People respond very well to negative advertising. While that is a somewhat unique characteristic where political products are concerned, it would be foolish to the point of Naivete to deny this or attempt to wish it away.
B. The independent/non-affiliated market is overwhelmingly anti-trump at this point. While it is likely to stay that way, a consistent message stream displaying how atypically poor and effectively non-professional our President has been is helpful to maintain this. I would wager that this is where the bulk of campaign funding will wind up.
C. It will take focus away from the more controversial elements of campaign platforms. You want good things to happen? Do not give reactionary and easily frightened voters time to dwell on them. Just remind them how awful the other guy is instead. Especially when he is giving you a lot to work with.
As I mentioned, I do not expect to change your mind. But these particular parameters will not change to suit our opinions either.
Democrats have been governing. In addition to showing the world of the law breaking the head of the Republican administration has done, they have been passing bills out of the House and on to the Senate. However, McConnell, the REPUBLICAN leader, has refused to take those bills up for even so much as a debate in committee.
I think this is why the Impeachment was so important. It very effectively removed any trace of legitimacy the MAGA crowd may have had in that Legislative Body. November will obviously reflect that and I think that when we look at the cost involved, what was spent was a pittance compared to how many of those guys are about to be cleared out. It was effort well spent.
cutting a trillion US$ from healthcare will do the trick..... and Democrats talk plenty about it, and other policy issues. That doesn´t mean you have to take Twitter and Facebook aiding libel lying down though.
Very true. It is not as though we can only do one thing at a time.
