“but Im happy to see articles like this one telling them the answer is always to go hard left.”
The answer is for the ComDems to Go Away. They can try California? I hear they have a hotel for them there.
Ah, it’s fun to hear the Dems setting themselves up for a disappointment in 2018 as crushing as the Trump victory in 2016. The reason this author doesn’t want “Blue Dog” Dems is simple: it would constitute a concession to the right, perhaps even an accommodation. Not one step back, Comrades! World socialism today! Best of luck, dumbasses.
That right there is a myth. It was Johnson with almost entirely Republican support (or the other way around, actually) that passed all the civil rights legislation. Why would those opposed to that legislation switch in protest to the party that passed it?
It's a long-standing claim by the Democrats intended to white wash their racist history (and current barely closeted racism).
And Joe Donnelly is going down in 2018.
Is he a blue dog?
Yup. Was elected as one to the House back in ‘06, I believe.
Some PAC has been running ads for him here in IN that sound almost word-for-word like Trumps campaign on trade and jobs.
Life’s a beach. Net gain 5 is fine, I think we get more but, that screws them 2020...and beyond...
The blue dogs weren’t whipped out in 2010 and 2014. They had been systematically driven from the party since the Clinton days.
Blue Dogs would be the best thing that could happen to the Dhimmicraps.
Insane ComDems are doubling down on the leftist crap.
Not many Dems have sense enough to run from it. Internal war was over long ago. ComDems run shop. No such thing as a conservative Dem.
Hey, they don’t want non-Stalinists in the Democrat party, that’s on them.
I think the yellow dogs were the Reagan era conservative Democrats (although the term “boll weevil” was also used); the blue dogs were the Clinton era conservative Democrats.
