Hillary's Vast Right-Wing Cons...
https://www.foxnews.com/media/carville-dems-losing-damn-minds

James Carville is no conservative or centrist but a self-describe liberal. But he says the same things about the media and the leftward lurch of the Dem. Party as we have.

A few excerpts:
"Democrats talking about free college tuition or debt forgiveness. I’m not here to debate the idea. What I can tell you is that people all over this country worked their way through school, sent their kids to school, paid off student loans. They don’t want to hear this s--t. And you saw Warren confronted by an angry voter over this. It’s just not a winning message," he said.

"Look, I just don't recognize the Democratic Party right now," former Obama National Finance Committee Member Don Peebles said. "I mean, the party has turned so far-left. Also, to see members of Congress jointly dressing up in white as some form of protest or solidarity at the State of the Union address is astonishing."

The concerns about elitism aren't new either. MSNBC host Chris Matthews has warned Democrats about appearing out of touch with American voters. “There’s too much self-saluting, too many events that seem to be about saluting them,” he previously said. Matthews also argued that former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton "personified the elite Democratic Party — the party that had gotten a little too Ivy League, a little too secular."


I just learned that my father, a hardcore Republican, is now voting Democrat. He never would have done that when he was alive.

Carville is right about this.The dumbocrat party has become a radical anti American communist party.They are on the wrong side of every issue and only want to divide the nation.obama is the most responsible for this shift towards communism.He made it acceptable to be anti American and tried to destroy the values of the country.If Hillary had won in 2016 this country could not have survived....Many predict a brokered convention this year because the dumbocrats only have a bunch of radical losers running for president. The liberal media tells us that Americans are against trump but if things continue this way until November, we might see the biggest landslide victory for Trump since Reagan mopped the floor with Mondale in 1984.


Consensus is anyplace without Martin trumps Martin, even with an ignore button.

A brokered convention (I'm afraid you're right on this) will likely put a relative "moderate" out in front. That's bad for Trump because that's what the party rulers want-and so do much of the media.They know the 3 leading candidates are so far to the left that they're losers.

BSDNC had Joy Reid in NH yesterday. She went around asking the liberals there who they thought would end up as their nominee. I was surprised and she was too that many said doomberg would be the nominee in the end. One even said harris as his VP candidate......Doomberg is an anti gunner and he would get beat......they are going to have to find somebody not yet on the radar to come in and try to save the party. only problem with bringing in a moderate is angering those crazy Bernie supporters.the party is finished because they are divided in half with half being commie supporters....

This is Hillary Clinton's plan.

Don't be so sure. Conventional wisdom said Trump couldn't win. Traditional wisdom said Reagan couldn't win. OTOH, McCain and Romney were electable.

I hope they pick a nice, electable candidate. That's President Trump's ticket to victory.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

I think Dem. elites are afraid Sanders or Warren wouldn't have a prayer.I think they'd love Bloomburg (and now Klobuchar). He wouldn't come over like a leftist wack job even though he'd do many of the same things once he's in office.
