Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 09, 2019

Without the Russian collusion charge, Democrats have too much to overcome next year. That their own nominee is likely to be well to the left of America's mainstream makes it harder still. Democrats have too much at stake, too little favoring them, and too little time for a second chance. They cannot let today's Mueller report stand, or they will surely fall next year.

The Democrats need to offer a sane, fairly moderate alternative to the Orange Stain, it's that simple.

I think they need to start introducing legislation that at least shows they're doing something other than slamming Trump. I don't see it. That Green New Thing sure went nowhere, and McConnel totally embarrassed that thing. They have a majority in the House, and a slowly-slippin' pitbull in Pelosi. Legislate, don't hate!!

I actually don't disagree with you in #3, but it seems Speaker Pelosi has her hands full with the new insurgent wing of the party along with the base screaming about the Mueller report redaction process to get much done.

Russian interference is inevitable again. Why would the dems prepare for some fantasy land where republicans don't cheat? That's a waste of effort.

If you would give literally any channel aside from FOX a chance, you'd know that democrats have always had real policies on the table and the only people focusing on "trump bad" are right wing media pundits and their idiotic viewers.

The longer the Mueller report is delayed and debated, the better for Trump. That's all that's going to be discussed by the dead-enders, the non-visionaries, and dopes like Slappy on his stupid #5 quote. Dems need to step up and do something besides complain about Trump. It makes then look weak. Hell..

@#2 ... The Democrats need to offer a sane, fairly moderate alternative to the Orange Stain, ...

They need to do more than that.

For example, Mayor Buttigieg is currently fleshing out who his is, letting voters and possible supporters know his background and who he is. I suspect that once he feels he has done that enough, he will start proposing policies that he thinks are good for the Country. And he'll start running on those policies.

Likewise, the Democrats cannot just put a sane, fairly moderate person in front of the voters and expect to win.

The need to have policies. Since we're in the very early part of the campaign, the more extremist policies are being bantered about. As the field of candidates gets whittled down, the policies will reflect more and more what the Democrats think they can win with.

But the Democrats cannot just put a sane, fairly moderate person in front of the voters and expect to win.

#10 I think they're expecting to do worse and win- put an identity first politician with shallow policies in front of the electorate.

In congressional testimony today, when asked Barr doubled down on his letter. Interesting.

As it pertains to this thread - Dems just need to nominate someone sane and they should win.

For all of his faults, the most sane candidate is Biden IMO.

And yet what do we hear?

Reparations
Welcome immigrants!
Gun control
Tax the wealthy
Free college
Free daycare
Other free sh÷t
Global warming
63 genders/LGBTQIRBBQ
Trump's fault
Ownership to the workers

Those aren't real policies. It's pandering, and more than just a bit patronizing.

The first Democrat who goes to the rust belt with an honest, non-patronizing pro-union, pro-jobs, Made in the USA message beats Trump. You can't sell that while selling all that other BS.

It's hard to do that and be pro environment and pro employer.

But a non-patronizing approach would be a good start.

The problem is the entire field seems to be going full-bore identity politics and other nonsense, like reparations.

I'm not expressing complaints but it doesn't mean I support Trump.

It's not my style. I don't need to complain on this place for your approval. Neither does Spork.

Complaining doesn't make you a better person, Zed. Maybe you think it does.

I was a huge fan of "The West Wing". There was a scene when Barlett was running for re-election where Toby and Josh are arguing on strategy on how to defeat the republican challenger.

Josh says, "I want to win...you just want to beat him....but I want to win...and there is a difference".

Josh was right. There is a difference.

Focus on winning....not beating him.

By the time we reach the election, "conservative" trump will have screwed the pooch at least a dozen more times.
There will be no shortage of material to hang around "republicans" necks come the next election

That's why the DR cretins are so breathless over this now.

I don't see the virtue in having a good excuse for losing.

Next time it could be Chinese collusion, or Ugandan collusion, or Iranian collusion, North Korean collusion, etc....

collusion doesn't really matter to the power structure, despite what they say.

If Hillary had won, we wouldn't be talking about this. It's the losing that matters....not the collusion.

No Collusion... necessary.

Wait until the cry for a Full Release of the report gets so loud it can't be ignored.

Wait until the cry for his taxes gets so loud he has to release them and then watch the investigation snowball again. And it will just get bigger and bigger and more and more nasty until the End. That's our Humpy!! Aren't there still 17 Investigation are under way? After Humpy loses the election and becomes a private citizen again is when the real Humpy fun will begin tho.

His AG will (try to) protect him until the bitter end. (and it will be a bitter end and bitter time long after Humpy steps down in disgrace)

Unless, of course, the Democrats start a circular firing squad or sabotage themselves again. (I'd go 50/50 on that)
