I supported Obama but that doesn’t mean I can’t say he had faults. You’re literally what’s wrong with the democrats right now


I don't regret voting for Obama, but yeah that guy had a hell of a lot of faults. How he handled some issues is just crazy and disappointing.

On the topic of left-right unity, would it be impossible to build a party out of the moderates of both sides and saw off the fringes? Or is that heresy?

Did he say or do anything else?

Because I've seen teachers tell children to stop "monkeying around" and it didn't strike me as racist.


He is alleged to have moderated a hate group. He says he didn't know he was added to the group or made a moderator.

Telling children to not monkey around versus a black man will monkey things up? Referencing any of the other primate species is a bad idea when talking about somebody who is black.....

Y'know, there was no blue wave or red wave, both sides lost and gained ground in certain areas, and they all seem largely content with their results.

Now it's gonna be a beautiful two years of both parties securing and entrenching themselves in their respective areas and politically deadlock themselves to a halt.

(Also, Pelosi as the Speaker is just ammunition for the Republican machine, especially if she dares bring up Trump's tax returns and subsequently fail to detect anything of worth)

Realistically speaking, a party of the "moderates" would be mostly comprised of unpopular establishment Democrats and a small handful of "never Trump" Republicans with no real power, and it would most likely lose everywhere. Neoliberalism isn't popular with the Democratic base or even most independents, nor is "never Trump" conservatism particularly popular among Republican voters.

yeah how dare we know if Trump has Russian connections. But i bet many in rural areas could care less. Trump could openly admit treason and and they wouldn't care.
