Trump learned from the Kavanaugh debacle all he has to do is spread a thin veneer of impartial investigation on an issue, and he can just charge ahead with whatever he wants.

This is a good reason why having government agencies that are independent is critical… but this has been thrown out the window.

where their interests align they will just collude together. because of course.

one of the reasons govt power should be as decentralized as possible. that way if it gets too bad people can move somewhere else, make them compete for tax payers.

I really do hope they pick someone good for speaker, and not Pelosi. She is ineffective and just not smart. Not that you need intelligence in today's politics.

Democrats need to float the idea of marijuana legalization being part of the platform before the gop does. I’m surprised this hasn’t been more prominent... it’s a good bipartisan issue.

^its by far the most perplexing low hanging fruit that so many politicians refuse to pick.

If Obama fires his DEA head circa 2013 and picks someone willing to consider descheduling, he stems the house losses in 2014 midterms. If Hillary runs explicitly on picking a DEA chief that will deschedule, she might still lose, but it would’ve definitely gotten more young people out and voting. Seems like a no-brainer.


Edit:
After Tuesday, it looks like America is gonna send the most diverse House ever to work. Atleast some of that credit should go to the Democrats.

At the very least it would be fun to see the pedes start arguing internally about marijuana and start banning people who are okay with legalization

People can shit on Pelosi all they like, but until another candidate emerges who can get the votes, it's gonna be her. No one to the right of her would win the nomination or get the votes on the floor, and none of the progressives are willing to actually challenge her.

Schumer is going to give Trump his dumb fucking wall in exchange for allowing McConnell to slam through judiciary bigots like the NC guy. It’s so obvious.

He’s the absolute worst. I can’t even fathom how he gets less shit than an actually pretty damn progressive Pelosi on the house side.

""This demand for purity, this looking down your nose at people who want to compromise, is a recipe for disaster for the Democrats," she said Thursday in her Capitol Hill office. "Will we ever get to a majority in the Senate again, much less to 60, if we do not have some moderates in our party?""

won't someone please think of the children moderates!
Quote :
"They've got to be careful with their oversight that it does not dwarf their messaging about how much we want to get done for the people of this country. If we focus on just going after Trump, then he has his foil. He will blame Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats for every problem he has. "

he will do that regardless, why do "moderate" democrats always fall for this kind of reasoning?
