64. Schumer made the classic Dem mistake of accepting the RWs coded language talking points

instead of correcting their misuse of terms and restating the issue in clear, unambiguous language. Ms. Waters use of the term harass was of course intended to indicate non-violent shunning of these unprincipled, uncivilized people. The right wing media immediately chose to frame the term as a threat of violence. Schumer's acceptance of the term as such and failure to re-frame was a cardinal mistake in countering RW propaganda.

Adding to that, this spinelessness is not the kind of thing I want to hear from party leadership.

Does anyone in this party understand how the game is being played by the other guys?

Bottom line...Dem leadership seriously needs to grow a pair, but THIS IS MOST DEFINITELY NOT THE TIME FOR CHANGES IN LEADERSHIP. Seriously, folks...changing leadership heading into mid-terms? Wouldn't the other guys just love that.
