Joe Manchin is ...

Brilliant and sophisticated. He is
unifying, focused and
loves to represent the people. He
lights a fire under us and
speaks for the underserved.
He is a valuable,
independent senator and
teacher.

5. He is also a

Fantastic senator
unifier, and
courageous man with
keen instincts. He never
falls prey to lunacy
and can fight for the right thing.
Congress needs his
excellence.

21. Well...

... maybe half of those are strengths I'd consider listing. I like having a Dem representing WV. I do like many of his votes - especially the one to Impeach! Until we get more progressives in Congress, we need him. I think we can get some version of BBB done... keep talking to him and get it done. Then, we can move on to Voting Rights!

23. Rich.

I like Joe too. I voted for him. I would like for him to be more progressive but I feel we are lucky to have a Dem in that spot.
Iím sure he learned a lot from Sen. Byrd and deep down agrees with most things the Dems are doing but has to ďtoe the lineĒ in order to keep these crazy right-wingers from crucifying him in ads.
I call his office often to beg him to support the BBB plan and the reconciliation package. Itís frustrating that it is all I can do😞
You see, we are nearing retirement and really really need to have dental, hearing, and optical included in Medicare.
And I am a universal pre k teacher in our public schools and see how families also need the support that is in that package.

I do think that Joe cares about us but he is trying to survive in the brainwashed WV political climate. It is so sad because WV had such a strong labor movement history and look what it has become.

I will keep calling him as I do Capitoís office, to let them know there are constituents out here who are really wanting them to vote for the peoplesí interests instead of corporate interests. Show me you care about me, Joe, Iím counting on you!

and sh-ts butterflies while riding a rainbow unicorn.

Who needs Santa when we've got such a lovely all knowing and kind Senator from the greatest state in the union that provides unbounded revenue to our federal coffers!

He is, in fact, a democratic senator in a deep red state and is helping to maintain a democratic majority.

I also wonder if he was so viscerally responsive to the idea he doesn't want to extend the child tax credit, how reliable the sources are on that info.

26. Absolutely essential to the confirmation of Biden judicial nominees

In less than a year VP Harris has broke more 50-50 ties than any VP since the 19th century. Without Manchin McConnell would be majority leader and Biden wouldnít be setting records with respect to judicial nominations and confirmations. Do I wish Manchin would get with the program on BBB, Voting rights and the filibuster? Of course. But he remains essential for the time being.

28. The best we've got.

He's not perfect. But we've filled a number of federal judge openings. If Clarence Thomas drops dead at Christmas, we'll get to fill his spot.

The infrastructure bill passed.

Could it be better. Sure. I could have also been born with a trust fund. But instead I have to work. We can't always get what we want. But if we try, sometimes we might just find, we get what we need.
