Some "Democrats" Say Progressives Are Being Too Mean To Trump And His Cronies


The DCCC recruited some real dogs for the 2016 cycle. Most lost and the few who won are now in Congress voting with Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy for the Republican agenda. That would be "ex"-Republicans Charlie Crist (FL) and Tom O'Halleran (AZ) and wretched Blue Dogs Josh Gottheimer (NJ), Stephanie Miller (FL), and Lou Correa (CA). House Democrats would be better off without them. The DCCC wasted millions and millions of dollars on electing and trying to elect these crap conservative candidates. The ones in Congress have exactly one function: allowing Ryan and McCarthy to tell the media that their horrific legislation is "bipartisan," thereby infuriating and alienating the Democratic bases. In committee, corrupt conservatives, especially Crist and Gottheimer, are already helping the Republicans to push their agenda forward.

On top of that, the DCCC and Pelosi's House Majority PAC wasted immense amounts of money on dreadful losers-- some in blue districts that Hillary won-- but who just couldn't motivate voters. Plenty of voters who, for example, cast their ballots for Hillary in CA-25 just couldn't pull the lever for a crap candidate like Brian Caforio. Same in VA-10, where Hillary beat Trump by a very hefty 52.2 to 42.2%, but where the DCCC's horrid candidate, LuAnn Bennett, lost against a very weak Republican incumbent, Barbara Comstock by nearly 25,000 votes, 52.9% to 47.1%. The DCCC and Pelosi wasted around $6 million on that race. Shit candidates like Lon Johnson (MI-01- $2.2 million), Joe Garcia (FL-26- $5.5 million), Pete Gallego (TX-23- $3.5 million), Colleen Deacon (NY-24- $1.1 million), Monica Vernon (IA-01- $1.5 million), to name just a few, were horrendous recruits who no one is held accountable for.

Hillary beat Trump in TX-23 49.8% to 46.4% but the Blue Dog who TX-23 Democrats had already been ousted in 2014 after disgusting them, Pete Gallego lost a race in a district where the population is 71% Hispanic. So what does Pelosi do? She re-ups DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Lujan to another term. And what does Lujan do? He re-ups conservative shithead Denny Heck as chairman of-- wait for it-- the DCCC Recruitment Committee. And scared-of-her-own shadow Republican-lite shill Ann Kuster was put in charge of incumbent protection-- which always amounts to protecting (as in financing) the Democrats who can't get any grassroots enthusiasm going because they vote with the GOP (like Kuster does). And so on...

Heck was whining at the House Democrats' retreat the other day that the special election districts are too tough for the DCCC. Maybe someone should sit him, Lujan and Pelosi down and explain to them that in business, real success depends on developing a long term strategy, not going to a one-cycle quick fix. Under Pelosi, who has zero understanding of how business works, the DCCC has never looked beyond the current cycle, which is why they not having losing ingrained in their DNA. That's going to be very hard to break free of but I can guarantee one thing-- re-hiring losers like Denny Heck and Ben Ray Lujan ain't gonna do it.

And then you have Garbagcrat Jim Webb, the ultimate fake Democrat-- remember when he ran for president and couldn't even get to 1% in any polls?-- on Meet The Press for some reason. And what does he want to moan about? What do racist pigs like him always want to talk about? Yes, that the Democratic Party has moved too far to the left and that they're not honoring slaveowners and are being mean to Trump and his fascist goons. That's the kind of messaging the Republican wing of the Democratic Party in Congress loves to hear-- the New Dems, the Blue Dogs, assholes like Lujan and Heck... and the horrible recruits Rahm Emanuel disciple Cheri Bustos (Blue Dog-IL) is trying to re-recruit the garbage candidates who lost last year, last cycle. These people never learn. Let's hope this new Dan Sena guy is smarter than his bosses and learns how to ignore them.

Stop whining!!! The Dems have been FAR too easy on the Republicans. They have been treating them with respect that they have shown they do not deserve. The Republicans play very dirty, they are corrupt and completely unethical - they care only about enriching themselves and their wealthy supporters. They do not care whatsoever about this country, the people, the Constitution or democracy. It is time for the Dems to get REAL MEAN and stand up and speak out. No conciliatory moves, forget it.

You have to give credit where it is due, however. Pelosi, heck et al may not know anything about bid'ness nor winning... but they sure do know who butters their biscuits.

FINALLY, it is becoming apparent to the intellectually dormant lefties (who actually care to vote) that these quislings have fidelity ONLY to the money.

Pelosi isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but she knows that if her (so-called) "party" starts recruiting, running and winning with true progressives, which will bring out more dormant lefty voters, her biscuits will go dry because the billionaires and corporations will stop flushing their billions her way.

Clearly, the democraps have chosen to keep the money flowing over good candidates, policy and encouraging voters.

We should reward them accordingly -- by starving that party of all votes from now on.
