I’m a blogger. I write what and how I want. So, here we go.
I’m sure he’s trying to do his job. But, I’m starting to get real irritated again with folks like Steve Kornacki and others who seem to have a problem with giving progressives credit where credit is due. Always seemingly having something to say about Bernie Sanders or someone from the progressive side whenever they get a win. “Oh, look at the low turnout“, he says about the win by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. (Congratulations! …by the way). Why can’t they just answer the simple question of …”Did she win?” With the answer being –“Yes, she did”.
Why can’t he just look at his little board and report the news without all the…extra. Sigh… We got news for you Steve. Progressives are a force; and we will be heard–regardless of being inside or outside of the party. So get used to it. You guys did that all during the last election. Downplaying everything and all gains they made and now, you’re trying to do the same thing again. Change comes when you push for it. And right now, progressives are starting to push hard. Instead of bitching and complaining and the normal hand wringing nervous democrats usually do, there are new voters and some old voters (like myself) who actually agree with Bernie and other progressives like him that believe things can be done to make things better for the average American. And yes we also believe that if they can spend money on the military–in which I served and was proud of it; they can also spend money on regular people too. And on infrastructure. And on social programs. And on whatever else we feel like money needs to be spent to bring up the country. So, as the elders used to say, if you ain’t got nothing good to say…shut your damn mouth! Lol… Nah… actually it says… If you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say anything at all.
Just sit back, do the math, watch it unfold and let it happen.
