    The reason so many MSNBC hosts are so pissed at Biden is they saw the influence Fox hosts had with Trump and they wanted the same when a Dem was elected and didn’t get it. And that’s not by any means the only reason I’m proud of Joe but it is one and not a small one.

    Weird how states that elect Democrats have the best protections for abortion. Almost like Dems do care about this issue and arenโ€™t just using it for fundraising, and that โ€œvote for Demsโ€ IS the top priority moving forward.

    Democrats have been warning you.
    Preparing you, and doing everything possible to prevent this reality for years.

    You chose to ignore them.
    You chose to spread apathy.
    You chose to treat this like a game.

    Unless you voted blue for the last 10 years. Blame no one but yourself.

    The NEED, you instant gratification sadist, is to restore 5 Supreme Court seats to pro-choice appointees. That means keeping the Presidency AND Congress in Democratic hands until that happens. Not in one election but election after election for decades.

    I hope I wasn’t unclear.

    But this won’t work because Psycho Sinema and Traitor Joe Manchin will not vote for an exemption to their beloved filibuster.

    Otherwise, this is a good idea.

    Robert Reich

    If Collins and Manchin feel betrayed by Kavanaugh and Gorsuch, they should join all senate Democrats to carve out a reproductive rights exemption to the filibuster and enact national abortion rights. Do it Monday.

    Wow. Let the finger pointing begin.

    Bernie Sanders is responsible for the right wing SCOTUS? Seriously?

    This is to say nothing about Democratic elitists ramming Hillary Clinton down our throats in 2016
    after she lost the nomination in 2008 to a MUCH better candidate.

    Despite her unpopularity, Hillary won the popular vote and might could have won the electoral vote if she had gotten off her fat a$$ and campaigned in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania like they mattered, especially Pennsylvania.

    Hillary lost and it was her own damn fault. You can’t blame the voters for being who they are, you get new voters.

    And why weren’t the Democrats raising hell about Merrick Garland when PBO was in office, his final year? Answer, because they were CERTAIN HILLARY WOULD WIN and get the SCOTUS appointment. How many ways are there to say STUPID?

    Revisionism gets us nowhere. Finger pointing gets us nowhere.

    And who is stopping the Biden agenda right now? Democratic traitors, that’s who. Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin. FFS, Biden can’t even pass a reconciliation bill because of Sinema.

    Stop looking at Bernie Sanders. The Democratic elites did everything but have him disappeared to get Hillary Rodham Clinton elected and it wasn’t enough. Then she loses to a world class grifter and look who is paying the price for her colossal, self-inflicted failure.

    Hillary Clinton and the Democratic leadership did this.

    Okay, that’s my finger pointing for now. But I need to get over it like everyone else needs to and we need to figure out what the hell we do next.

    Oral contraceptives should be over the counter like they are in over 100 other countries. I will die on this hill.

    When the right wing noise machine stopped talking about it, you knew it was a right-winger.

    So itโ€™s super obvious now that a right winger leaked the Roe decision right

    Iโ€™m glad Iโ€™m a vagina voter. Im glad I vote for women and black excellence.

    WM voted for their rights for 250 years, and some of yโ€™all were stupid enough to let them fool you to thinking your identity wasnโ€™t important to your politics.

    Miscarriages happen every day. Those that don’t clear the body & require abortion will now become fatal events. This is what “Bernie or Bust” progressive purity with a side of misogyny has wrought. They will deny responsibility & vote against common sense. Reject their bullshit.

    Y’all still not understanding. People see children as a punishment for women having sex. That’s why some folks say the solution for women since Roe has been overturned is to “close your legs.” Not once do they advocate men getting vasectomies or keeping their peens in their pants

    Libertarianism also finally officially died on June 24, as the Libertarian Justice essentially said that only cishet religious-fundamentalist WM have a right to privacy & freedom from government intervention & interference, but the rest of us are now exposed to face the wolves.

    Republicans want to pass a national abortion ban. Democrats want to codify Roe. That choice is on the ballot in November.

    “Originalism” was never about looking at Constitutional issues the way that the founding fathers would have seen things, but actually recreating the world of 1787-91 that they lived in.

    People on here talking about how โ€œvotingโ€ wonโ€™t solve anything and yet thatโ€™s exactly how the GOP accomplished this. Their voters show up every time, en masse, regardless of whether they are in love with the candidate or not, because theyโ€™re laser focused on the endgame. Today.

    The reason Obama didnโ€™t โ€œcodifyโ€ Roe is because constitutional rights are already the supreme law and do not need congress to exist.

    Donโ€™t be fooled. The alt-left is trying to make you forget that THEY got Trump elected, that THEY got Roe overturned.

    The more the media, the blue checks and the berners blame democrats, the more they are working to elect republicans and enshrine fascism.

    • Kathleen O'Neill says:

      And that’s their goal. White liberals have to stop treating these people like “good faith opposition who just has ‘policy differences’ with centrists”. They don’t give a whit about policy and their goal is to destroy Democrats and enable fascism. We need to start calling them out every chance we get.
