Just watched interview on MSNBC with Stephen Cloobeck. A word to the wise.

We keep bashing ALL billionaires at our own risk. We keep looking for the perfect at the expense of the good or better we risk a party divided and striving forever.

I recommend that DUers look for the stream of this interview. His position on taxes, GOP, others of the 1% is interesting. So is his comments about the radical left.

Here is his bio:

Fuck him. Get someone great to run and small donors will carry them.

10. Small donors cannot and will not carry all Democratic candidates...especially in midterms

Sure a presidential candidate might be able to do this...but others no...let's try to view our situation realistically. We need to stop worrying about purity and start winning....money is need for this.

11. Please stop...all time shares are hard sells...so what?

Take the money and stop the fucking GOP. I actually bought one time share retail...not old either...than I wised up and bought what I wanted on line for pennies on the dollar...time shares can be fun if you know how to play the game.

21. It's tough to support a winning strategy with some Dems. We just continue to hurt ourselves with

 

the purity tests. Can we just all agree that no one is perfect? Perfection is not what we are after. We are after a win!

complaining about Democrats with his "too far left" purity message of his. And on election day! Why can't he just support ALL Democrats?

He needs to stop defending what is indefensible. He doesn't sound like he really understands or can relate to he problems of the average person.

he is not like Trump...oh I left off stupid.

36. just left

How can any billionaire really related to the average person. That's part of the problem. If Dems don't stop letting corporations buy favors they can't win. The Repubs can because they are either low information brain washed or they are empathy lacking corrupt people.

In the age of United, we need Democrat friendly millionaires and billionaires to help us fight the rightwing.

18. Uninformed.

Isn't D.C. filled with enough uninformed people wielding power ???

Right or left.

It helps if you know what the hell you are talking about.

He sounded more like a whiny Republican before they were infested by the Tea Party and Trump supporters.

27. Yes, I watched the interview.

No, I don't comment on interviews I haven't watched.

People are sick and tired of millionaires, billionaires, and corporations whining about their unfair taxes.

I am well informed on the GOP tax proposal.

It benefits the millionaires, billionaires, and corporations.

He is tired of being picked on.

Tough shit.

He thinks the left should move to the right.

Fuck that.

We have moved too far right !!!!!!!

The far rights agenda will destroy this country.

We need to stop calling out the millionaires, billionaires, and corporations.

Fuck that.

They won't stop until they bleed this country dry.

14. So basically he's threatening that he'll withhold his money and hold the party hostage

if we get too tough on poor little billionaires and ask them to pay their fair share? Take your money and shove it up your fat ass, bud. You're the reason why people hate politics.

hostage, we are holding ourselves hostage. He seemed willing enough to pay his fair share. Already has donated to many good liberal causes.

28. And I have a right to tell him to take his precious money and shove it

where the sun doesn't shine. Millennials likes myself are more left than other generations. By and large, we can not stand people like this douche who throw there money around as leverage and power to have more say in the direction of the party than average folk.

When people without a lot of money threaten to leave the party if things don't get there way, they get chastised. When high dollar donors do it, we get on our knees, beg, and ask whatever we can do for them to stay. Fuck him and the horse and he rode in on.

16. I don't have a problem with billionaires

I have a problem with greedy ones though.

If he can help do something about the BS going on in the country then I hope he uses his money wisely to help. But, time will tell since I am not familiar with him.

19. Lets not get divisive. Anyone who votes Dem is

Good in my book. Right now we need all the votes/money we can get. This country is going to hell in a hand basket right now. Everyone has a right to their opinion. This right Dem vs. left Dem seems a bit manufactured and just had in time for the 2018 elections. Iím not saying the poster is trying to be divisive but it could be any number of people.

Rome is burning right now. Letís not fight over whether weíre going to use sand or water to put it out.

26. Unless like some of us, you believe that by moving right we lose..

 

..our connection and relevance to huge numbers of poor and working class people who don't feel represented by a party which takes it direction from billionaires rather than the needs of the most vulnerable.

Last I checked there's a lot more poor people out there than there are billionaires, and their votes count just as much.
