Why did the Democrats punt on the Kansas 4th, which was very winnable tonight? Is it really just because it was a true leftist who beat the establishment Dem in the primary?

Because that kind of action did add to Hillary losing. Now when i found out post election that Hillary didn't even go to

ADDED>> a major factor to was voter suppression and we'll never know just how much that was a a factor. But it was.

Oh and same Texas judge still voted down this new voter ID law. (yes!)


Now Vlad happen to catch your recent posts in the Aussie thread...

Just what kind of leftist policies do you espouse? Even The Left has a continuum of views.

I consider myself a liberal-progressive, who also has an interest in Nordic Democratic Socialism. Is NDS too milk- toasty for you?

I understand that this election was making news, and twitter feeds were saying how the GOP are worried, but at the end of the day it's a Republican district. There's been no D win in over 20 years.

This idea that it was "very winnable" is a stretch, but I'm curious as to why you think the Dems "punted"?

Meant to say something like this in previous post ( tired)

While I think the policy/ issues divide between Leftists and Liberal Democraats is more like between 75%/25% - 65%/35% (vs 90%/10%)...

to let even that amount of disagreement get in the way of letting this Greedy, sexist, racist, xenophobia Dumkoft get in the Oval Office!?! Argggg!

Compare the amount of money the GOP invested vs. the amount of money the Democratic Party invested.

Trump Part VIII

So, anyone who uses a phrase like "Holocaust Camp" doesn't seem to be blowing a neo-Nazi dog whistle; that person is simply a blithering idiot. However, on FB, Spicer blamed the media and said that he wanted to clarify that Hitler didn't gas his own people. I guess because Jews, LGBT, and gypsys weren't real Germans. Which is kind of a neo-Nazi dog whistle.

Oh, and the WH didn't mention Jews on Holocaust Rememberance Day.

Yes.

Any press secretary who comes out and throws a tantrum about the size of the inauguration crowd has to be #TeamBannon.

Only white nationalists are so petulant.

Maybe because it would detract from Trump's efforts to "destabilize" the Middle East.

Also, Putin.

Also, LGBT stories tend to take some time to find traction in the MSM.

Come on, this is a joke.

That district was +27 Trump and the Dems came within 6.8% last night. Hello?? That is HUGE.

It was not in any way a winnable district. It's the district around Wichita, which is one of the most solid red districts around. To come under a 10 point spread in an election where the Dems did not start pouring $ in until about 10 days before the race should be terrifying to the Republicans.

This is how you chip away, and any sort of suggestion that this is punting is totally divorced from the reality of this district.

Because someone was pulled off of a plane!!! While that story should be covered, it pales in comparison to what else is going on. I also think Americans struggle to emphasize with the plight over other cultures (and possibly the same could be said vice versa).

As for the Kansas election, I just don't see how it ever can go blue? It reminds me of that sketch, maybe it was Key and Peele, where doctors are performing a heart transplant, or had just finished.

When the patient awakens, the doctor informs him that his life was saved due to Obamacare. The patient gets visibly upset, takes his hand and rips into his surgical wound pulling the heart out and claiming he won't let big government into his body. He then dies.

That's how I see parts of the US, it doesn't matter if the opposing side actually helps them they won't accept it because its.....the other side / bad guys / libtards
