I think that many fail to understand that there's an important difference...

I think that many fail to understand that there's an important difference between legislative accomplishments and failed or unrealized attempts.

It's quite fair to ask for examples of actual leadership, or dealmaking/negotiating/compromising, or anything at all that would show evidence of success in shepherding any bills through.

Tweeting is not leadership. She's really accomplished nothing that would make me want to give her any sort of serious consideration for being elected Speaker. She has a lot to learn and needs to mature and grow. She's not there yet.

All I'm trying to say is that the Speaker is a position for someone who's earned his/her stripes, who has the battle scars to prove it, who has demonstrable successes, who knows how to unite, who understands the risks of pride and vanity, who is humble and modest, who takes no joy in acting coy and provocative or divisive, who has the knowledge and maturity and wisdom and experience and temperament that the job requires.

Nancy Pelosi deserves our eternal gratitude. Thank you Speaker Pelosi!

She also deserves an apology from those who insulted her with ageist vulgarities, and who were "too big for their own panties" in their hot-headed, impatient and grandstanding attacks on her.

Nancy Pelosi is a national treasure. We are very fortunate to have her.

I remember that one time when his co-panelist on the Bill Maher Show got completely fed up with having her personal space invaded with rude gesticulations and she "fought back". I'm sure there's a better choice of words to describe it... it wasn't an actual "fight"... but in her own passive aggressive way she gently pushed back and away... to protect her own eyesight and as a way to unmistakably indicate "this is NOT okay" and "you're being rude to me" and "you need to stop".

I can't even remember who the panelist was, but I'll never forget how she stood up for herself in that moment... she had had all she was willing to take.

LOL!

AA's and POC will be voting for Bernie in huge overwhelming numbers...










Black voters are a pivotal voting bloc in the South Carolina presidential Democratic primary, accounting for more than 60 percent of voters.

BS won't win South Carolina... BS won't be our party's nominee.

It's simple. Nina Turner likes ANYONE who hates Democrats and the Democratic party.

It's simple. Nina Turner likes ANYONE who hates Democrats and the Democratic party. This is why she has such an affinity for people like Jill Stein, Cenk Uygur, Michael Moore, Cornel West, David Sirota, Susan Sarandon, etc... and why she admires groups and orgs like TYT, Justice Democrats, Our Revolution, etc.

All I'm trying to say is... if anyone wants Nina Turner's approval and support, all they need to do is say anything that denigrates or smears Democrats or the Democratic party... and boy-howdy, she's gonna be right there with words of support and bringing up the rear flank. She's not known for being loyal to the party. In fact, she even boasted (threatened?) that the "Our Revolution" group would support Republicans over Democrats.

It's just that that type of negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

Remember that one time when he had a rally in North Charleston, SC?

BS can't even get AA and POC to attend a rally at an historically BLACK church in a MAJORITY BLACK neighborhood, within a MAJORITY BLACK city.

His rally (although well-attended) had so LITTLE ethnic diversity that it looked like he could have been somewhere Vermont. In fact, based on the statistics, the demographics at that rally was even whiter than Vermont.

It's obvious that the AA and POC community are rejecting BS and the BS campaign. They did then, and they still do NOW. He can't make headway. He hasn't been able to refine and tune his message.

BS just doesn't connect with that community. The BS message just isn't resonating.

All I'm saying is, with such a humiliating rejection by the AA and POC communities, and without their vote, BS doesn't stand a chance.

His attacks and smears of the Democratic party cause division and distrust. That weakens us.

No matter what, he is helping to shape the Party's ideology for better.
No he's not. GMAFB, Hoyt!

Honestly, what good purpose does it serve when anyone goes out of their way to smear Democrats and the Democratic party? When anyone goes to such great lengths to denigrate and demonize the Democratic party, it only serves to cause division and distrust. That weakens us.

Oh, I'm sure you've heard all the smears before... the ugly lies...

It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt". It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "feeble". It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "corrupt". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is "the party of the one-percent". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party is the "party of the elite". It's NOT TRUE that there's "no difference between Democrats and Republicans." It's NOT TRUE that Democrats are "do-nothings". It's NOT TRUE that the Democratic party "doesn't care about climate change." It's NOT TRUE that the Democrats "focus too much" on diversity. It's also NOT TRUE that people who the refuse to vote for an African-American because of his skin color "aren't racists". It's also NOT TRUE that the Democrats who "are very big into diversity" aren't "particularly sympathetic" to the working class.

We can't win national elections whenever someone keeps repeating lies about the Democratic party... lies that discourage participation, volunteerism, support of our party's candidates, donating, canvassing, VOTING FOR DEMOCRATS!!!

Here's the bottom line when it comes to things like this: Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ EXCELLENT QUESTION!!

Why wasn't the Sanders Campaign straightforward with the public....
...instead of concealing the fact that he had a heart attack for almost three days?
Why wouldn't they be forthcoming and honest from the very beginning? The BS campaign was reporting "no heart attack" as if it were fact, but it wasn't. Why didn't they just say "too early to tell" or "we don't know yet" or words to that effect?

Now that the precedent has been set... now that we know what to expect... (and now that we know the TRUTH is TOTALLY OPPOSITE from what they told us) I'm afraid that I will now (and forever more) have a VERY DIFFICULT TIME in being able to trust any news at all that comes from them.

All I'm saying is... they should have been honest, direct, transparent and forthcoming FROM THE VERY BEGINNING... but they weren't. And that's a shame. The BS campaign has totally lost my trust on this matter. I can't believe anything they say when it comes to this subject.

At first they were insisting he hadn't had a heart attack.
