Leahy wont filibuster? What the FUC?

Now you see I am the one who lectures others about not voting 3rd party or not at all.

I am the one who loves to tell people you MUST vote in every election and you MUST vote for whoever the Democratic candidate is NO MATTER WHAT otherwise you are voting for a fascist republican prick.

But, that doesnt mean we cant primary some of these people, and we may have to.

This is UNACCEPTABLE, Mr. Leahy.

2. I absolutely believe those filthy and disgusting America

hating gop assholes will do away with the filibuster, but at a minimum it must be done by our side.

Personally, when the gop decided the election of Obama didnt count and they could deny him his SC, I figured all bets were off at that point, and there are for me.

The system is broken and by them.

8. We can lose 7 and still hold a filibuster

If the Republicans go with the nuclear option, fine.

I suspect they might not break the filibuster. They know they need it, and Trump isn't exactly their favorite guy. I can easily picture them telling Trump "This one is not going to fly. Nominate someone else." Then they'll get another RW lunatic. And here we go again.

3. This is why

People need to call his office, tweet him and so on. I did just to let him know that his seat is being watched.

4. Call him and urge him to filibuster.

Don't threaten him. We need him in our caucus.

I am getting sick of the purists here threatening to primary Democrats we need in Congress.

You are very naive.

6. Is purist

 

Codeword for anyone that opposes democrats rolling over and appeasing the fascist right wing? Because if it is, I am definitely a purist and you will start getting sick much more often from now on.

GOP blocks garland for more than half a year and democrats won't even filibuster? We don't need these weaklings in our party. We need fighters.

10. Any dem who doesn't filibuster

 

Isn't a fighter. I guess I'm a purist because I don't want democrats rolling over for the GOP and Trump. But I'd rather be known as a purist than a fascist appeaser.

12. Calm down

I urged him to filibuster. I was just saying that he needs to hear from voters.

5. Good, as I am not in his state he wont listen to me.

My job is to get the word out to those in his state, and the other Democratic senators thinking the same thing, if any.

The idea he would make that decision, just is crazy. That is not the Leahy I know and I have known his politics for a long time, or I thought I did.

7. Have left daily messages for Michael Bennet.

He just won reelection, so I suspect he'll do what he wants - go along to get along.
