    “You Lose 100 Percent of the Battles You Don’t Fight.” The Salon article on how the Democratic Party can rebuild itself seems like a throw-back to the criticisms Howard Dean made of the party before he became head of the DNC. As head, his “50-state-strategy” for the first time in my memory sent an organizer to SW Virginia to try to find credible candidates to run for office on the state and local level, something Dean’s Democracy for America stressed also, along with providing training for prospective candidates for office. After the election of Barack Obama, Dean was out and Tim Kaine was in at the DNC. Tim’s a wonderful senator and man, but as party head he lacked quite a bit. The 50-state strategy was dropped. Two years later, it was the GOP that showed how to organize in off-elections, and the rest is history. Even Barack Obama has acknowledged he failed as a party leader. We Democrats better learn and apply the things we haven’t in the past. If gains aren’t made in 2018, we’ll face another round of gerrymandering by the GOP. The battle starts this year in New Jersey and Virginia.

    Unfortunately it isn’t funny. In real life Trump will have to ban the press. The stark revelation of Trumps total lack of Presidential suitability and temperament, lack of
    basic domestic and international affairs knowledge, and inability to answer even basic simple governance questions would be SNL reality. The Orange emperor and Putin Pawn has no clothes.

    Thanks, SNL, for helping me keep my sanity. These days, every little bit helps. Keep on showing Trumputin for what he really is.

    Trump is no more qualified to be POTUS than Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian, he is nothing but a reality TV star with a large bank account, zero class, and even less self control than a toddler.

    Since he entered the political spectrum, he has gone off the deep-end by questioning Obama’a birthplace. And now that Obama is THRIVING, he has officially gone mad.

    Dow over 19,000, gas prices lower than ever, record unemployment, more and more civil rights, consumer confidence up, health insurance cheaper than ever ($85/month), car insurance cheaper than ever ($25 per month from Insurance Panda), the 1% starting to be taxed more… all the while republicans moaned about Benghazi took pointless votes to repeal the ACA.

    Obama Won. Trump, despite winning, remains a Loser.
    Donald J. Trump – The 4 year orange nightmare.

  • Video: Sen. Dianne Feinstein on #MTP rips Trump’s response to John Lewis, “there is so much fear in this country” and it’s “the job of [Trump] to reassure people that he is not just the President of his base…but of everyone.” Trump needs to “step up and recognize that he represents…people of all different races and creeds.” Also, no doubt in her mind that Russia tried to interfere in our election AND that it altered the results of the election.

    Concerning Obamacare, I’m getting a deja vu feeling when I read the newspaper these days, because it seems like we have gone back in time to 2010 for a re-vote. The arguments in favor of repeal are the same things that were being said in 2010. The quality of the policy debate hasn’t improved despite the existence of 6 years of real world experience. There is so much information out there – here is one reading list:
