Ten years ago, Newt Gingrich weighed in on the same topic.
It seems, nothing much has changed.
We have ourselves as an electorate to blame.
We can’t expect competent results when those we elect are inherently incompetent.
Pelosi and her crew are already working on impeaching President Trump when he wins a second term.
They represent the epitome of the phrase, Taxation without representation.
They have absolutely no agenda.
They do have excellent delusions:
In Chuck’s case below, he clearly has an undiagnosed brain tumor, listed to him prattle on below.
Though they’ve attracted little attention, recent public polls have sent clear warning signals that the ambitious agenda of the rejuvenated Democratic left could strain the coalition that carried the party to its sweeping gains in the 2018 election.
Makes no difference they will still vote Democrat.
Recent surveys show that such prized progressive ideas as a government-run single-payer health-care system, tuition-free public college, and significantly higher top marginal income-tax rates hold the potential to starkly divide Democrats along racial lines.
In polls, these policies have faced substantial skepticism not only from working-class white voters already drawn to President Donald Trump but also from college-educated whites, whose recoil from him powered last fall’s Democratic wave in white-collar suburbs around the country.
Support for these ideas is consistently higher among African Americans and Latinos, though in some cases equivocal even among them.
These findings underscore the stakes in the rolling Democratic debate about the best pathway for the party to oust Trump in 2020, particularly as his job-approval rating ticks up in several polls amid broadening satisfaction with the economy.
“We need an equal and opposite willingness to shake things up, but in the right way,” insists Adam Green, the co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, which has endorsed Warren for the Democratic nomination.
“Part of the case that progressives will make is not only is there zero tension between electability and bold transformational ideas, but bold transformational ideas that shake up the system are absolutely key to electability against Trump
Our Founding Fathers went to war over far less, a tax by the Brits on tea.
We have become too comfortable and lazy to do what is needed.
Liberals drawn to 2020 contenders such as Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are arguing that Democrats must advance a “transformational” agenda that can ignite higher turnout among minorities and young people while still recapturing some of the disaffected white voters who were drawn to Trump’s promise to disrupt the political system.[Source]
