Somewhat misleading title. He barely spends any time at all explaining how it could have been a lot worse.

But now we're on the track to total collapse so that's awesome.

I'm giving this one star because this dude thinks AOC is the future of humanity.

Cena_mark - 2021-03-01

She is. America needs to pull far from Reaganism.

SolRo - 2021-03-01

Republican president shits on the couch and gets kicked out of the house. Democratic president comes in to clean up after him. Republicans start screeching at democratic president for shitting on couch.

Rinse/repeat every 4 to 8 years.

Crackersmack - 2021-03-01

Yeah but the problem with this is that the Republicans can screech all they want, it shouldn't matter. Democrats should be able to deliver, at the very least, the explicit campaign promises that they made to get into power just purely out of a desire for self-preservation.

And they can do it without a single Republican vote. The reason that they aren't doing it because they think that we are stupid and will buy another insane "obstruction" excuse, and free them to service their donors. Even though 2010 shows us that this strategy absolutely will not work.

ashtar. - 2021-03-01

How silly and uneducated. It's actually good for the Democrats to do nothing and not actually help people.

Obviously, if you weren't just trying to impress the septum-ringed they/them hotties at the local collective squat, you'd know that the only way to achieve progress is to never confront those with a material interest in preventing progress. In fact, if you take their money and do their bidding, then you get the most progress.

Yet another example of why need to ignore twitter stalinists like yourself and leave politics to the professional adults who know how to build electoral coalitions as durable as a cake in the rain and keep hiring the same consultants who spent $90 million to lose to Mitch McConnell by 20 points.

Hazelnut - 2021-03-02

Poor Ashtarsmack, wasted all 2020 trying to talk people out of voting and everyone still sees right through him.

"twitter stalinists like yourself and leave politics to the professional adults who know how to build electoral coalitions as durable as a cake in the rain and keep hiring the same consultants who spent $90 million to lose to Mitch McConnell by 20 points."

i dunno dude they did take the presidency, the house and the senate with half the fucking flyover ready to put both most of us on pikes and parade our dead corpses through branson

maybe don't shit your diaper when they can't knock off one of the most entrenched, corrupt and powerful senators in US history. i bet if only some motherfucking genius had the strategic foresight to throw a bottle of piss at him i'm sure this would all be much, much different and all the problems would have gone away forever

ashtar. - 2021-03-02

I've never seen Hamilton, so I don't know how smart I am, but maybe spending $90 million dollars to lose by 20 points is a waste of money that could have been directed elsewhere? Maybe the people getting paid a lot of money to blow through cash and lose in Maine, South Carolina, West Virginia, etc. are more interested in their particular grift than in winning races?

And they lost seats in the house and a tie break vp vote in the senate relying on Joe Manchin hasn't actually let them do much of consequence. Against an historically unpopular president in the middle of a spectacular national disaster, this isn't much of an accomplishment. Maybe they should have been more moderate. Like, maybe they can run W. Bush in 2024 as a unity candidate and he can lose to that muscle babe from the Mandalorian.

Crackersmack - 2021-03-02

You don't have to throw anything at Manchin you just have to threaten to take him off his committees and he'd fold in a second, but as of this morning The Hill is reporting that nobody from the office of the POTUS has even contacted him to try to negotiate for his vote. So it's pretty clear what is happening here.

Hazelnut - 2021-03-02

Why bother, Ashtarsmack? Everyone sees through you, and you're not even putting in the energy. Ever since Trump lost you've been oddly deflated. Even you don't believe your own bullshit, so what's going on? Just lonely?

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2021-03-02

I don't know if AOC is the future of America, but she's the future I would vote for. Alexandra Ocasia-Cortez (hope I got that right!) is a brilliant politician who is fifty years younger than Bernie Sanders, and probably smarter than Mitch McConnell. I'm not really smart enough to know for sure.

Every day in America now, we live through shit that is weirder than AOC being elected President in 30 years, when she'll be about a year younger than I am now. I'll be super dead, so good luck to you.0

SolRo - 2021-03-02

I’ll be 65 in 30 years, so hopefully AOC gets me a nice retirement home.

ashtar. - 2021-03-03

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a AOC sitting on a human face—for ever.

Crackersmack - 2021-03-03

Speaking of AOC and retirement homes, isn't it strange that she has nothing to say about Cuomo? She's certainly become the good little soldier for the party establishment lately.

SolRo - 2021-03-04

Even AOC isn’t pure enough for the hermetically sealed alabaster virgin that is you.

Crackersmack - 2021-03-04

She's one of the better people in the house but that is an extraordinarily low bar. And she seems to be moving right since Biden won, probably to avoid conflict with Mama Bear.

Hazelnut - 2021-03-05

The only liberal pure enough for Crashtar is Donald Trump

Nominal - 2021-03-01

Valid points about the senate being an outmoded, broken institution that has to go, but the rest is the same old BrandNewCongress garbage that helped get us into this mess.

Says Trump coasted in by claiming everyone in Washington was the mainstream establishment enemy, segues straight into blaming every Democrat in Washington (except Bernie and AOC) as the mainstream establishment enemy, then seguing into blaming mainstream media to shill for his own newspaper.

Jacobin magazine browsing dopes like this think that dropping blanket terms like "neoliberal" or "right of center" is a mark of above it all intelligence. Only support outside fringe candidates because that's what impresses your fellow coffeehouse revolutionaries. Those candidate never compromise!...because they never do the work of building coalitions to get anything done, which almost always involves compromising.

Anyone who claims that Democrats and Obama got nothing done in 2016-2017 when they had the numbers to ignore Republicans has checked out of reality. Just look at the submitter.

Hazelnut - 2021-03-01

Exactly what Nominal said. Sure, I would like to see the Dems to play more hardball, but pretending Trump won in 2016 because dEmoCRatS aNd rEpUbLICaNs aRE The sAMe guYs is just more Crashtarmack trolling.

Economic collapse certainly helped Trump, but the economy was recovering in 16. The underlying problem is that after 30 years of Rush and his successors, an ever more racist and authoritarian Republican Party has morphed into a full-on hate group aching for its Fuhrer. Trump happened to fit the bill, Hillary happened to be a weak candidate, and there was other random awful luck like Russian hacking and Comey's fuck-up.

Our REAL good luck was that the same qualities that put Trump in power made him a complete incompetent. He wanted so damn hard to pull of a military coup, but he couldn't because he had needlessly alienated his own generals -- worst mistake for any budding autocrat. And then he sabotaged the Covid response out of sheer egotism, when a moment's thought twelve months ago would have told him if he'd led a fight against the virus he'd have won the election handily.

Crackersmack - 2021-03-01

Hey you guys make sure you keep all these excuses written down somewhere handy, because you're gonna need them when Democrats get blown out in 2024 because they failed to produce any results at all even with a unified Dem government.

Hazelnut - 2021-03-02

Lazy. Tired. Come on, if you want to be PoeTV’s resident troll you’ve can’t just phone it in like that.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2021-03-03

The truth is that we're lucky to be rid of Trump, if we are in fact rid of Trump, and if we are rid of Trump, it's because Joe Biden beat him.

The beauty part is that the Republicans are still stuck with him. The GOP is dangerous now because they're in trouble. They're a minority, and Trump is exacerbating that by his antics of massaging the base and alienating everyone else. A minority party that's stuck in the minority isn't going to seek power through democratic means. The GOP is in a death spiral, and they're going to try to take us down with them. This is war, and its about the long game.

Biden has put Anthony Fauci in charge of the coronavirus response. He's letting Fauci talk, and shutting the fuck up about it, except for an occasional "wear a mask" tweet. It's basic competence in a major health crisis.

Crackersmack - 2021-03-03

buddy Trumpublicans don't have to do anything except sit back and watch Democrats completely shit the bed, this idea that they are gonna have to take extraordinary measures to get back into power after the Democrats are spectacularly failing like they are is delusional even for you

Gmork - 2021-03-01

Next up on the crackersmack show: was Hitler really GOOD for Germany???

Crackersmack - 2021-03-01

whoa slow down with the anti-semitism Gmork, you're gonna get the resident zionist up in arms, and he'll probably take his frustrations out on a Palestinian and you don't want that on your conscience

Gmork - 2021-03-01

what antisemitism, chud

Gmork - 2021-03-01

I'm just gonna assume you're talking about your own and never revisit this thread

Crackersmack - 2021-03-01

yeah you can go ahead and goosestep your way back to the reichstag, Hans

Hazelnut - 2021-03-02

Enough already, SolRo

Nominal - 2021-03-02

This is really reminding me of that "Thank God I was raped" video.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2021-03-02

These stars are definitely for Nominal, as I didn't watch the video.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2021-03-04

To everyone but the sad clown who gloated all last year about Trump's impending victory, its got to be obvious that the Republicans ARE taking extraordinary measures.
