Day after day, alone on a hill
The man with the foolish grin
Is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he's just a fool
And he never gives an answer


Man, that is perfect...

By all means, take political advice from the National Review.

He's Susan Collins level concerned that Nancy Pelosi hurts Joe Manchin's feelings.

All he has is that small mountain of coal money to console him. Poor lil' fella.
 
2021-11-05 7:27:54 PM  
Manchin is still essentially the most powerful politician in the country, so I'm failing to see how she has the upper hand.
 
2021-11-05 7:29:20 PM  
And this doesn't matter to him, because the checks still clear. A fool, yes, but a rich fool.

"Nancy Pelosi Is Making a Fool of Joe Manchin"

Uh, no. Pretty much every other article surrounding these bills have been "Manchin kicks Pelosi's ass again"

I thought the article would be something like that, but it's actually saying, "Joe Manchin, don't fall for Pelosi's budgetary gimmicks. The $1.85T bill is actually $4T." She's making him a fool by deceiving him.
 
2021-11-05 7:34:43 PM  
Pelosi can't get either wing of her party to agree on the bill, let alone get Republicans on board.  And Manchin's supposed to be the fool here?
 
2021-11-05 7:39:27 PM  
This is a perfect world for Moscow Mitch, the Democrats have a "majority" and aren't getting a damned thing done. Manchin's blockage probably contributed to the loss of Virginia, since the Democratic "majority" has left people with nothing positive to campaign on.

Moscow Mitch will laugh all the way to an overwhelming majority in the House and the Senate in 2022.

Since Schumer is useless and Biden is resting his eyes, it's up to Pelosi to negotiate with the entirety of Congress. So this impasse is really all her fault.
 
2021-11-05 7:44:46 PM  
Can we have a vote of no confidence in Pelosi and Schumer yet? Their job is to pass an agenda and to get their members to vote for it.

Regardless of reasons around it, they've failed.

Since Nancy and Chuck can't give me exactly what I want, I want them replaced with someone that will.

LOL.

Go try and get 100 random people to agree on where to go to lunch then get back to me.

This is the politics of the nation and you all act like it is as easy as convincing everyone to get just turkey subs instead of turkey and chicken.

Just because he is a bad and useless man, and a traitor, doesn't make him a fool from a purely selfish perspective.
I'm pretty sure he has feathered his nest a great deal better than most of us have.

This is just a poorly sourced opinion piece.  It makes vague assertions about democrats trying to make undefined  "sweeping political change".  It quotes right wing 'think tanks" as authorities.  It's a farking joke.

Look at the way the right presents their arguments.  They are writing for people who are only looking for something to reinforce their pre existing beliefs.  They know that their readers will take anything in quotation marks as evidence, without ever checking a citation.  It's a thin veneer of respectability which is enough for "smart" republicans. Oh, I don't watch OAN, I read the National Review.  Straight farking trash.

In Seattle, the wealthy turned out to vote while the poorer and minority votes did not turn out.

In the second map, the north and coasts are the wealthier and less diverse precincts and the inner south is the minority heavy neighborhoods. In the first, the lighter precincts are based on %of eligible voters who turned out their ballots.

Give them more to vote for and get their votes.
 
2021-11-05 8:59:16 PM  
Oh, The National Review. Sort of relevant 50 years ago. Now not at all. They support Manchin? How shocking!

What an amazingly insightful news article.  Everything I've seen indicates that the Democratic Party have Manchin on the ropes now and he is pretty much a spent force.  He will have no further influence over the juggernaut of social reform Nancy is currently pushing through Capitol Hill.

/Or answer (B).
 
2021-11-05 9:15:07 PM  
If Manchin and Sinema continue to hold fast, they'll be among those left standing after the 2022 election sweeps all things Democratic before it. Then they can wave goodbye to all their ankle-biting colleagues as they head out to sea.
