gopher321: Wonder what Biden promised him to flip


Might have been nothing.  If Manchin is just reflexively anti-Democrat, he doesn't really have any power.  He's just a regular member of the GQP.  Power comes from sometimes voting with Americans and other times threatening to vote with traitor-trash.  Then he can demand favors for his vote.  But if it is all pro-Confederacy, no one will offer him anything.  So, vote with something the Democrats want - and turning down Cabinet members, especially at the beginning of a President's term, is generally seen as "not done" - gives him cover for the threats later.  Going full Nazi now just means he would get nothing, as what is the point?  You have to set the hook before you can reel the fish in.  Cast and reel gets you nothing.

Agreed - but he is the reason why there is a a democratic legislative agenda.

If it wasn't him it would be someone exactly like him. The most conservative Democrat sets the agenda.

Every single democrat has that power right now.

He's one of the few to realise it so far.

I REALLY hope Haaland in confirmed, on so many levels.  The history aside, it is time that the interior department is run by someone who DEEPLY cares about the land and environment.

Not to mention, I want Bear's Ears expanded....Day 1

There was a chance that Murkowski would vote to confirm which would have taken some of the attention off of Joe Lieberman Manchin so he needed to get that spotlight back.

I doubt he's the only one to realize it. He's likely to be one of the very few to take advantage of it, though.

I think this is a bigger deal than some of you are making it out to be. Polluting companies are pretty big in WV and he just voted against their interests. Rag on him for other things, but not this.

The worst Democrat is still better than any fascist GQPer.

And you can right well count on it that any GQPer from WV would be 100% openly trump-heiling fascist.

While on one hand it's nice to look to potentially 1 or 2 Democratic pickups in 2022 in the Senate, the scary thing is that they're likely to be picked up from some of the last Republicans who aren't 100% open trump-heiling fascists.

Not really, it was the most conservative Democrats in 2009/2010 that set the agenda and prevented even a public option, let alone universal health care that Obama took off the table because Congress wouldn't even consider it.

It's always the most conservative Democrat who determines policy.

And in this case, does going with it cost him anything?
 
2021-02-24 5:49:38 PM  
Yay, Manchin decided to not be a complete and total bag of ass today. He may be the absolute worst Democrat, but at least he's not a farking Republican.

This tired line of defense has weight if, and only if, Manchin actually behaves like a Democrat.

He f*cking voted to confirm Jeff Sessions and confirmed other Trump sh*t.

He's a Republican you just allow to cosplay as a Democrat. "Would you rather a Republican have his seat?" has no weight because it would make no difference in the vote tallies.

Good.

He shouldn't have been making noise to the contrary in the first place.

I can't believe they nominated someone that went to Highland High school, the school where Beavis and Butthead went, to be the Secretary of Interior.

Agreed. And if the United States had wanted an overwhelming Democratic agenda, they would have voted for it.
 
2021-02-24 5:59:24 PM  
Good. She should give the republicans the finger when getting voted in. Assholes were complaining  that she was too partisan. But you had no trouble sticking oil barons and anti-education nut cases in the cabinet, right?

Manchin isn't magic.  His seat could go to a Republican after Manchin's term ends so long as you don't fark up your senate elections in 2022 and 2024 so badly that you fall below the 50 vote threshold when it happens.

I'm going to rag on him for making noises that he was going to vote the other way.  Haaland is qualified and has done nothing, personally or professionally, to justify his opposition.

blue dog dems are a product of their state political histories, not because of current politics.

We're losing this front in MN/WI/MI.
