Last paragraph
“Their best chance at winning next November is to have a spirited primary, figure out who their strongest candidate is and then unite behind that person. And stop telling themselves catastrophe is inevitable.”

2. No. This is NOT us. Horse race media tell the public that. WE don't tell the public or us that.

 

This is self doubt creep that comes from media and troll farms. WE don't have a "best chance." Chance has nothing to do with the outcome of 2020.

Don't. Believe. The. Hype.

There are more registered Democrats throughout the country than Republicans. If it weren't for voter suppression and machine hacking, the turnout numbers would be even higher.

We either have an unhacked, honest election, or we don't.

4. Exactly. Media are run by Repub owners. But Repubs should be hounded, every hour, every day,

 

with their legal and moral acts and attitudes.

6. Unfortunately here in Ohio a few D party state wide officers are expressing dissatisfaction

 

with our current field, and questioning electability.

I caught wind of a draft Sherrod Brown rumor and just today on FB one of the higher ups said they wished he was running.

7. ANY Democratic officers who parrot this media hype are suckers. Don't let them play us.

 

Don't believe "rumors" and don't believe any hype.


Tell them: ANY Democrat on their worst day is better than any Republican on their best day.

This is all election propaganda.

Stop listening. Stop giving them credence.

Democrats are at a pivot point in history and must not tolerate musing, murmurings or media bullshit.

Tell them to get some self esteem and spine.

10. The media demands immediate answers but that's not how the system works.

 

The party cannot - and should not - eliminate candidates. The primary voters will decide. It may be messy but that's how democracy works.

11. I never said that "catastrophe is inevitable", I said that "catastrophic loss is unacceptable

 

and improbable."
