    Since then, Pelosi has made several dismissive remarks about Ocasio-Cortez, calling her Green New Deal “the Green Dream or whatever,” and suggesting that a “glass of water” running as a Democrat could win in districts as liberal as hers.
    Personal opinion, I think the infighting is on the increase and it jeopardizes the party. The strong and entrenched vs the very vocal newbies.

    Should be interesting to watch.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    And I hope it continues and intensifies even further. Should make Trumps re election even easier. But not that I care for Trump though. But compared to all of the Dems running against him, he is clearly the better choice. The same was true when Hillary ran against him. I wish we had far better choices to choose from and that none of these idiots were running for this office, including Trump. But it is what it is, so not much one can do about it.

    It is inevitable. Any political party, social group, even church that goes over the deep end with their policies will turn on their own. They will start to out radical each other. "More radical than thou." The Democrat are there now. The older more savvy leaders are seeing this and trying to pull back on the reigns. I think it is too late. Look at their candidates for President. Not one of them is electable. They will twist toward the most radical lest they be adjudicated a NAZI right winger. The policies they are all promoting are horrid and the vast majority of Americans will reject their extremism. The party will then attack their own supporters as being "deplorable" "racists" and "sexist." It is already over.
    Go ahead and hold the election and make it official. Trump is a two term President.
    (BTW, I wanted Carson and only voted for Trump because the alternative would have destroyed the country.. as would any of their current candidates)

    The Speaker has an issue with 4 House members and the end is near. ^_^
    It's amazing how much attention these 4 members get from their ideological counterparts on the right.

    This is silly. It is normal and healthy for individuals in a political party to disagree and argue over policy. What would be scary is if, in a two party system, all of the individuals in one party had homogeneous beliefs and policies. That would indicate dangerous authoritarianism. Are you aware of how much the founding fathers argued over policies and political philosophy?

    What is "smart" about my comments? Is it not true that all the drama revolves around 4 Members of the House?

    Is that a clear and obvious sign of a fractured party? A party leader who insults other members of their same side?

    Do you mean like the majority of Republicans when they all "Yes Man" Trump and fervently defend him, no matter how vicious and offensive he is or what misleading and dishonest things he says?

    Your ”concern” for the Democratic Party’s health is touching.

    Mea culpa, I only became a Democrat in 2018, having been Republican since 1980.
