"No one is "appeasing" Manchin. What the hell do you think the party can do about him --"

The Right Honorable Fool asks a good question.

The trouble with the snobs, (we have none on this board thank heavens) - while they hide out in their hand-picked, NON-DIVERSE enclaves....is that beyond the bubble and campus, they really don't know what to do - and they are too arrogant to listen.

Truth and fact is, much of the Democratic proposals - are popular. Even in Red States. Rural health centers. Elder care. More medicare help. CHILD CARE. A clear majority wants it.

*Someone* here, MONTHS ago said repeatedly:

1.)Don't focus on the $3.5 trillion number. It's easy to turn people against a "number".

2.)Break it up into small items - Americans are better off focusing on *one* thing. Heck on this board, full of smart educated people - they can only do "Rittenhouse!" "Trayvon!" "Bannon!" and focus on solely that and then move onto the next one.

3.)Someone here had said - call it the "Child Care Bill". Then the "Senior Health Bill".....and instead of letting a Manchin oppose 3.5 trillion - DARE HIM to be against child-care. Dare him to be against senior -care.

Also, what extremists from their non-diverse bubbles need to understand is - if they want support, instead of calling people names - or doubting that a Senator is truly a Democrat - TALK to people - as people! The snobs forget that Bill Clinton and Barack Obama *both* not only won 2 terms - and Obam even won counties that TRUMP won - -- they didn't sneer at people. They talked to people. And guess what they got a few things done - and got reelected.'

But when Manchin and Sinema "aren't Democrats" - then the Falwell Ayotollahs on the Left need to just sit down and be quiet and enjoy their 401K statements. After all - *some* of them have had to do JUST that all their political lives. And now - what? They are well behaved little girls and boys and even after 8 years of Democrat Regime and now another term - FISA, PATRIOT ACT, WIRETAPS - all the great Bush-Aschroft stuff that *some* pretended to be against with calls of "My Rights!" "My freedoms!!!" - - -are now law of the land - and the bubble-meisters are cool with it, *and* with their own party's Corporate Love Affair.

Manchin! Sinema! They're not Democrats!! Bill Mahr!!! He need to shut up!! That means - one is too extreme for the Democratic Party and for America.

Mind you, this adds to greatest hits - remember someone said about Joe Lieberman "I wish him will"....well, Ned Lamont is now Governor in CT - and lol - nixed the Climate pact with Northeast States.

*Some* can pop off their extreme rhetoric. - - but luckily, we in the mainstream are running things. And they as usual are on the outside, looking in.

*Not one TMF member is personally attacked in this post. Suggestions for promoting the Biden agenda have been repeated. *
