If so, this was a HUGE error and disservice to Mayor Pete and the voters.

Where he stressed that he was not taking a shot at the Obama administration which he admired very much. He made it clear that he had much to thank President Obama for, including his ability to serve in the military.

40. There are very few Dems who consider the Bush years 'normal'

 

Between 9/11; an unnecessary, misdirected war; putting everything on a credit card, advocating for POW torture while nearly bringing the US and the world to the brink of a financial catastrophe is hardly what I call 'normal.'

Republicans can fantasize but as Dems (including Mayor Pete) we are not required to view the past with GOP-colored glasses.

14. A quick glance around shows me many failures of the old normal.

 

Homelessness, cost of health care, never-ending wars, the foster care system, unsecured voting machines, crumbling infrastructure, an obscene amount of money in the election system, student loan debt, lack of affordable housing, etc.

I don’t know anyone who thinks our systems haven’t failed.

It goes beyond sloppy as far as I am concerned. Knowing how explosive the quote would be, he should have verified it before running with it. The audio is very clear.
