      The Democrats need to cut their ties with Manchin. Right now before the election and let voters know that we do not recognize Manchin as a Democrat. What this man just did with his vote for confirming Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is contrary to Democrat Party beliefs. Yes, Manchin is a Democrat in a Deep Red State but is he really a Democrat? In a word, no. This vote for Kavanaugh will have dreadful consequences not only for the people he is supposed to represent but for the Country as well. Manchin's vote for Kavanaugh just gave the Republicans control of the Supreme Court. Now Trump and his Republican enablers own the Presidency, House, Senate and the Supreme Court. We, the people, are so f*cked now thanks to Manchin selling out to Trump and the Republicans.



      And to those people who will say, no, keep supporting Manchin because he is a Democrat. Again no, he is not and most of all, screw this support the Party bullsh*t. You are not supporting the Party by electing someone like Manchin who isn't the least interested in supporting the Party. To those Democrats in W.V. I say, do not cast a vote for that Senate seat. Let the Party know you will not support those who go against the Party agenda and collude with the opposition. Seriously, let the Republicans have that seat if Manchin is going to vote as one as one of them. Manchin turned his back on the Democrats and on women and needs to pay the price. Democrats need to turn their back on Manchin.

          He deserves a firestorm, but making it about Dr Ford is trivializing sexual assault and it hasn't been proven. This dialogue has become, "the reason," that we are basing our protestation on their cold blooded, limited investigation... Guilty, until proven innocent. We will never know. This invalidates the initial protestations of perjury and his involvement in the enhanced interrogation under Bush 43. This should not be swept under the rug.


          What I saw was a sense of entitlement and he seemed to think the confirmation process was taking too long he was given this job.... Then he blamed Democrats and a Clinton revenge plot.


          What has been proven by the 10% of his documentation and reputation that Grassley and McConnell didn't bury, showed him as hyper-partisan and heavily involved in the enhanced interrogation program.


          Do we have a war criminal on SCOTUS?

              Let's continue to play checkers, rather than chess. We have veered so far to the left that we risk losing the blue wave. Manchin has been a fairly reliable vote for Democrats and would serve us much better than a GOP alternative. We have already lost so many blue collar Democrats, whose values don't align with progressive politics.

                  I see your point, Prof....having a Manchin AND a Heitcamp as well as a Warren shows Democrats can be a broad party suited to local and national representative governance.


                  And, turning Manchin into a GOPster doesn't get us closer to control of the Senate and turning off the Right wing takeover of the judiciary....

                      We loose because we don’t fight back or are too willing to compromise our principles. The right does not play by the same rules

                      Ejecting Franken for nothing but keeping Manchin for making a vote that made possible a hard right Court for a generation feeds both Fox smears.

                      People say they hate Washington the bickering the anger the inability to work to fix problems.

                      Sure the left is not innocent but the goons are on the right, the conspiracy nonsense is on the right the inciting the base is on the right the incompetence disgrace corruption and Putin are all on the right

                      I am sorry we are not aligned here, but one let’s remember the elections are local this time and two F Machin if he wants his seat this badly let him sit with his Republican friends

                      What are the chances if he had stuck

                      Snow, Flake, Burr or someone with courage or ambition might have paused and this lunatic today would not be on the court.

                      As Edward R. Murrow once said this is not the time for those who oppose this to sit and be quiet

                              Too far left? That to me is total *beep*. How about being specific and tell us how we have veered too far left? Because we want all to have proper and affordable healthcare, clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, all have access to a decent and affordable education, insisting upon campaign reform because we are seeing our government becoming one of the most corrupt governments out there these days, because we want economic fairness for all, because we want to protect our voting rights, because we want to reduce the horrendous cost of medical prescriptions, because we want to protect worker's rights, because we want to protect medicare and social security, because we want to pursue job opportunities in renewable energy sources, because we believe in climate change, because we would like to put an end to systemic racism, and I can go on and on but I think you get the drift.

                                      If anyone felt obligated to give Manchin, the benefit of the doubt because he is a Democrat, they can drop that doubt, without a drop of do gooder liberal doubt.


                                      The treatment of Dr Ford, was a slap in the face to all women. That behaviour is foul, but more common than it should ever be. The reaction to Dr Fords testimony was cold blooded and cynical. This is the frame of mind of what is left of the GOP. The common people to them are a necessary inconvenience to their agenda.


                                      Manchin all but gave Trump and the extreme right wing decades to restructure our government into the western version of Putin's Russia. The will of the American people be damned. Anyone who has witnessed one of their hearings can see the level of contempt the right has for everyone that dares question their authority.


                                      Manchin betrayed us all, with his yes vote. Dr Ford deserved better, but they weren't voting guilt or innocence. There were a dozen obvious reasons why he wasn't qualified for such an appointment that had nothing to do with her.



                                      This was not obstruction, for it's own sake. This was about policy about limiting the power of the right so the crime family in the White House could be held responsible for the laws they've so abused. I suppose Manchin is not at all bothered by their abuses of power and dishonor per our allies.


                                      He needs to change horses, I resent every penny the DNC ever gave him.
