Sen Manchin, your eternal legacy will be that of a do-nothing obstructionist.

The filibuster is an enemy of democracy.

To Sen Manchin, it's not too late to change your legacy by supporting your Democratic colleagues and ending the filibuster.

Save your legacy by getting on board or history books will forever immortalize you as an obstructionist.

1. There are at least four other Democrats who oppose getting rid of it.

Maybe we should stop pretending that they don't exist. Dems would have much more leverage with him if the number was 49 and not 45. At 45, Manchin has no reason to switch and we'd still be four short even if he did.

45 + 1 doesn't not equal 50, as much as some people seem to insist.

3. If Manchin joins our team, the others may follow.

Then we can turn our attention toward pressuring them to save democracy from obstructionism.

That IF is never coming, and I'd love to be wrong about that, but I don't think I am.

6. Give him the Al Franken treatment

The Democratic leadership know how to flex their political muscle and get members to play ball, and they should do it now.

5. Is it against forum rules to bash a DINO?

IMO, the man has little interest in getting things done.... His motivation is to stay in office. A perfect example of a swamp creature.

7. I tried to be as honest as possible when writing this op..

I don't want this to be a bashing. Instead, I'm using the truth.

If the truth is bashing, then so be it. Let Manchin's actions ring clearly.

I just wish he would wake up and see that damage he is causing.
