Gloves off Mike!

for weeks, our candidates have went after Mike. He has focused on Trump, gave millions to down ballot candidates and stayed above the fray. The vicious attacks have continued. Mess with the bull and get the horn. Mike has every right to now- defend himself and point out the general election problems with candidates like Sanders. Go get gem Mike

My party is on the verge

of nominating a Democratic Socialist, not a Democrat. In doing so, will lose the general election, lose house seats and forever label our party as Democratic socialists. It will be something we will pay for at the ballot box in middle America. Are we Democrats or Democratic Socialists? There is a difference. Sanders has made a living disparaging Democrats. It's about time we call him out. My guess is its about to happen ten fold. Sanders will be a electoral disaster.

Bloomberg taking shots from candidates

As he spends hundreds of millions going after Trump, helping candidates across the country, registering voters and taking on the NRA. It's sad, divisive and risky. Once the field dwindles he has every damn right to use his fortune to fight back. He hasn't but should. He's focusing on the enemy as they all should be. My guess he will eventually get sick of the sucker punches and lay several hundred million on his opponents. He has tons of opposition research on Sanders specifically.

Breakfast at VFW and primary chit chat

Small sample but telling. I had breakfast with about 40 vets this am. All over 60 and a mix of political persuasions. I'm in a rural area, 45 min west of Nashville. I conversed with 3 vets at my table. All were Democrats from way back. All 3 said they would support any candidate except Sanders. In fact, all 3 said they would write in Biden or Mayor Pete ( I found the Pete answer surprising in this rural, strongly evangelical town but they like his military service). One of the men became visibly upset when talking about Sanders. This demographic, right or wrong, associate Sanders with Cold War socialism. My guess is this opinion is widespread.

Texas Democrats worry about Sanders ticket

“Sanders is a complete disaster and Warren is a complete-disaster-lite,” said Texas-based campaign consultant Jeff Hewitt, who has been working in Democratic politics since he served on Clinton-Gore’s campaign team in the 1990s. “At the end of the day, most of us want to win.”.
" There is overall uncertainty which is growing. The real fear for Texas D’s remains Sanders," Bill Miller, a longtime Austin lobbyist who has worked with both Democrats and Republicans, said of a Sanders ticket. “'We’d be fucked' — that’s what they’re saying. The drain at the top goes down to the bottom.”

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser endorses Bloomberg

and VP chatter follows. Lots of black urban mayors supporting Mike.

Bloomberg/Clinton and Trump goes nuts

Bloomberg and the rest of our candidates have very smart strategists that work for them. A VP choice is made after much analysis. Bloomberg is a master at getting under Trumps skin. This duo would drive Trump into permanent craziness. A guy more successful and richer with the woman who got more votes. lolol. Gotta admit it's funny, if not brilliant.

A Biden/Abrams

ticket would win Florida, AZ and NC.

I'm a Democrat and not a Democratic Socialist

I can't believe our party...the party of JFK, Clinton and Obama is reasonably close to nominating an almost 80 year old Democratic socialist with an early history of fawning over leftist regimes abroad. It's a loser in middle America. I like Sanders passion, many of his ideas and will vote for him if he's the nominee. I don't think he will be but will support him. My 30 years of working on campaigns in the southeast tells me he will lose massively. The "Socialist" GOP campaign that lays wait will be unrelenting and successful. We will lose house seats in Red states and South Florida will revolt. Polls now show a close race with Trump. This before the billion dollar "Socialist" campaign and is unleashed with 5 years of opposition research and mounds of video and audio that will make much of America write Bernie off before October. Trump campaign knows who they want to run against. In 2020 a Democratic socialist may win the nomination of my party of 30 plus years. It will set us back decades. We will be Democratic socialists.

Not for easily offended but

Dave Chappell and Joe Rogan practically sold out our 18,000 seat arena in Nashville in a couple days. I'm going and know realize both take a lot of heat on here but damn they are funny
