what game does Dick Durbin imagine he's playing
Dick Durbin is my Senator. Do you mind if I send a link to this column through his contact page? I am fucking sick and tired or his droning on and not doing anything, and I'm tired of being polite in my communications with him.
“When they go low, we go high” does NOT apply anymore. They’re running the whole show because they’re willing to lie, cheat, and steal. Dems need to stand up and fight back. Take the gloves off!
The frustration of every liberal in America. When will our guys fight back?
Besides their inability to fight fire with fire the Democrats are poor at showing their agenda to the average American to fight the false narrative of Fox. They are also the first ones to "do the right thing" like resign from office over dopey pictures from 25 years ago (Senator Franken). Meanwhile the serial liars and racists and pedophiles across the aisle keep getting more press and campaign dollars.
Democrats have needed to grow a pair and take the Republicans to the proverbial woodshed for a LONG FUCKING TIME. They're destroying this country. People are suffering/dying behind their bullshit. Call them out on their ridiculous "pro-life" stance. They're no "pro-life"--not by a long shot. They're anti-women/anti-children. It could not be more clear. Call them out on what their infatuation with firearms is doing to people all over the country. MAKE THEM LOOK AT THE CARNAGE THEY'VE CREATED. We've got all the information we need to call them out on their massive goddamn lies and their rank hypocrisy. Jesus, I'm so sick and tired of us playing softball with them.
Agree!! In the great words of Barney Fife, “you gotta fight fire with fire”! 🔥🔥🔥
Exactly!!!!! Frustratingly true. Every word you just said. Democrats can’t get out of their own way.
The reason Republicans violate every rule and break every norm is because they know that Democrats in government will not allow democracy to crumble and, as a result, Democrats won't do the same things back. Because if both parties ignore rules and norms across the board, democracy is done. But the "all or nothing" approach that Democrats take is wrong. Only some rules and norms are integral to democracy. Blue slips are not. They in fact may be antithetical. That process easily can be ended. And where Republicans break *the law*, they should be prosecuted, without concern that, if "we" prosecute "them", they'll just do the same thing to us. "They" are gonna do it anyway. They don't care what Democrats do.
Democrats have too many oldtimers running the show, who have too much respect for the institutions to blow any of them up by virtue of having been in Congress for so long.
OMG YES!! I'm SO tired of Dems being upstanding nice people in the face of this bullshit. Better to play dirty now and win the long game where we can be nice again, than to try and be the adults in the room with a bunch of fascist, misogynist, racist, xenophobic, prevaricating, bloviating fucks. Honestly. HIT BACK.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! 👏👏👏
You can't reason with unreasonable, moronic, maniacal, zealots! You can't expect rabid wolves to act with civility! The Democrats have got to stop bending over and taking it up the butt! I am an older than dirt, lifelong Democrat, and have always been proud of that, but I'm getting fed up!
Thank God someone is speaking the fuck up. I write this same thing in the comments on every pertinent opinion in NYT and WP, but not a whisper from the Democratic Party. Wtf? With every SC fucked-up ruling, all we get in response is “go out and vote”. Kamala Harris, after Dobbs fell -“go out and vote”. What the hell does voting in a senate majority do when we have legislators like Feinstein refusing to resign and Durbin refusing to stand up? What’s the point of voting in more and more Democrats when neither Biden nor the Senate Dems will support doing ANYTHING about the theocracy we have on the Supreme Court? I feel like we’re in this war and we have most of the Democrats acting like Neville Chamberlain. Look at Jaimie Harrison - not a single statement ever calling out the fascists.
Well it has been time to fight for a very long time now. Look at what the things that Mitch the bitch did to Obama and now we are paying the price very dearly in the Supreme court. If I have to have Garland any where I would rather he be on the Supreme court!!!
The GQP is not afraid to do whatever they want to get their super majority in any State they can and all Dems do is wine about "They are not being nice!" Blah, Blah , Blah.
Democrats look like a bunch of bickering cry babies that focus on Bathroom Bills and pushing for bills that we don’t give two fucks about. Which makes Dems and Libs look like a bunch of simps.. Republicans just railroad Dems and get what they want. I’m ready to run for any elected seat at this point to fight the nasty fight. Put your dukes up Dems and get outraged! Beto was the only person I saw giving Greg Abbott flack on TV for lack of gun action and for sucking!!
Republicans don’t care what they look like, Marjorie The Psycho, is loved by REPUBS. Distract while they do anything and everything unscrupulous to US. Elect me and I’ll look like a nut for my Dems to push it through…let’s go!
Here's a novel idea... why don't politicians quit when they are on the wrong side of 85? And stop putting us in compromising positions.
