42. I don't think we have it in us, really, to fully take him down the way TLP is doing.

They know nasty and know how to fight nasty. Sometimes, I'm afraid we're too decent for our own good. Seriously, republicans have been fighting dirty for decades and now they're getting a dose of their own medicine from former members of their own party. They know trump's Achilles Heel better than we do. They can have at it because, frankly, it's more effective coming from former republicans than we could ever be.

49. I don't think they are "former" Republicans.

They might well be people with whom Democrats can work, but not agree on many central tenets.

Democrats would do well to remember the adage about "the enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend."

53. Check out the Thom Tillis ad I posted. It didn't just criticize him just because of trump but for

a whole lot of despicable policies that today's gop now stands for. Their eyes are being opened to more things than just donald j trump.

Lots of work before November is needed to counter attempts (both foreign and domestic) to reelect the monster in our White House.

11. They've been doing pretty good in Senate races. They're not just Never Trumpers, they want to

bring down his enablers and cowards in the Senate, too. And it's not just because they support trump, either. Check out the anti-Tillis ad. Brutal. I'd like to see them get involved in House races, but all this costs money.

44. They aren't that nasty. They just go after the ones they want to defeat while Democrats are

worried about the imperfection of Democratic Candidates.

There was a thread recently which brought up Kamala Harris having Flaws.

And some others concerned about Val Demings .

Jeb is in imminent danger of having to forfeit the nickname that Trump personally bestowed on him four years ago.
Low Energy, indeed.

it sure is fun watching him face the orchestra of ridiicule.

He's going to come up with some medical issue and drop out of the race - mark my words

Sometimes they use a gravely voiced cowboy type (Sam Elliot?} for ads with a male targeted message. Stormy is perfection for this one.

18. Someone has done a razor sharp psychological eval on him, and these LP ads are all

pinpointed to get right up under his skin.

He proved last night that he can't look away from their ads, and this one is even more designed to poke him with a stick.

33. Maybe people are beginning to realize Trump is boring.

At his rallies he always does the same old act. He did two hours on stage, with maybe two minutes of new material. Everything else was repeating the same old crap as always. No wonder people were yawning.
