Yeah, bla blah blah. Whatever. Joe Lieberman couldn’t win as a Democrat, or an Independent. He’s a nonentity and has been so for over a decade now. Starting a thread based on his opinion is pathetic and clueless.
You know who’s worried because they should be? Republicans. The more AOC and others talk about (unquestionably) popular policies like taxing really rich people more or implementing Medicare for all, the more it becomes commonplace to discuss these popular policies.
So please proceed with the scattershot-I’ve-lost-the-plot concern trolling. It’s like watching someone shoot at shadows and noises. LOL.
"Writing off speculation that he may make a poor showing in New hampshire and drop out of the race, Lieberman told CNN’s Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer that his campaign is picking up, as he put it, “Joementum.”
Yeah, 76 year old Joe Lieberman. The same guy who endorsed McCain over Obama, insisted he was an “Independent” while receiving more than $31M in campaign funds from special interest groups…that Joe Lieberman.
In 2008, during the campaign, some obscure, fuzzy video of Barack Obama on a panel emerged; in it, he discussed healthcare in a way that could be interpreted as supporting a single payer system. Wingnuts came here with it as a gotcha! It was damning.Universal healthcare! He’s a dangerous radical! Liberals and Democrats: ASSUME THE TIMID, DEFENSIVE CROUCH!
In 2018, you have charismatic and articulate people on the left (from AOC to Bernie) discussing this and other popular proposals openly and proudly. Glenn Beck’s Overton Window is moving. It’s bad new for Republicans, but I think the GOP may understand the situation better than Democrats, because they’ve been doing something similar with their dumb, unpopular policies for 40 years.
