    Fair point on Mondale. He was a principled liberal and is the last Dem nominee to campaign for president as a genuine liberal. He got destroyed because Saint Ronnie's debt and inevitable crash hadn't caught up to the US voter yet, but he summed up the shell game perfectly in words that should be carved on the Treasury building: if you write a trillion dollars in hot checks you can create a brief "recovery" too. He also lost because he said, "both he and I will raise your taxes. He won't tell you that, I just did." Reagan won and then raised taxes a dozen times to back the country partly out of the disaster his cuts had led it into. We've still never recovered from The Heist of lowering the top rates, and ever since the wealthy have only gotten morbidly obese and sucked the middle class dry of its wealth and political power.

    Mondale's loss enabled the Goldmancrats to take over the party. They bring it up as the boogeyman that we can't have nice things and ever since Boomers have been cowed and always buckle. But the kids aren't Boomers and they aren't fooled. They can see what Dems merely holding the line while the GOP hurtles us towards fascism has done to this country. They know we have to push back hard and essentially repeal the last 40 years of bullsh-t fiscal policy. That means a lot of bankers and brokers are going to have a sad, and Rover does not like that, but it's the only way to restore the middle class.

    Goopers aren't the problem. You have to get it by the current crop of Dems serving in Congress. We don't have the public option, for example, because there weren't 60 votes in the Senate for it even though there were briefly 60 Dem Senators. Is there 60 Dem votes for single payer? I don't know. However, you can't count on a monolithic voting block for your entire party on monumental pieces of legislation.

    Likewise, we still have the ACA because the Republicans don't have the votes in their own party to do away with it. What some people chalk up to political cowardice can better be explained by simple math sometimes.

    Manson's dead, so it's gonna be at worst a tie for both parties in 2020. I thought we had plumbed the depths with Dubya but I am not going out on much of a limb to say we are seeing the worst president in American history, and by an enormous gap.

    Just more the left can't win stuff. See it all the time. The left can't compete on God, Gays, and Guns. It just can't. Even another Vietnam didn't tip the scales. The GOP always wins because you get to keep your guns, you get to keep more of your money, you get to keep the foreigners out, you get to keep weirdos out of your bathroom, and you get to keep the gays out of your Church.

    There's no counter to any of that stuff.

    More People Fleeing

    Josh Raffel, a senior communications official in the White House who has been a go-to crisis manager and who has worked closely with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, is leaving the administration, officials confirmed Tuesday.

    Raffel's departure, which will take place within the next two months, comes as Kushner, President Trump's senior adviser, is under increasing scrutiny for his inability to secure a complete FBI background check for his security clearance, and with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's Russia investigation intensifying.

    Raffel, who joined the White House in April to help run communications for Kushner's Office of American Innovation, had become a point person internally for some of the most sensitive matters, as well as the Middle East peace process. He functions as a spokesman for assistant to the president Ivanka Trump and Kushner, the president's daughter and son-in-law, but his portfolio is far more expansive, including foreign and domestic policies and day-to-day crisis management. Last fall, he was promoted to deputy communications director and worked closely with communications director Hope Hicks, one of the president's most trusted advisers.

    Raffel earned a reputation among reporters for his voluble and fervent defense of his administration charges and came to be respected within the West Wing for his strategic instincts.

    His departure was first reported by Axios on Tuesday afternoon.

    The announcement of Raffel's exit, just shy of his one-year mark in the administration, is likely to prompt speculation about Kushner's status within the White House. Another close ally, former deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, left the administration earlier this year. And in recent weeks, reported tensions between Kushner and White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly have spilled into public view.
    Looks like Mr. Ivanka might be in trouble...

    The left can't compete because it doesn't know how to communicate its stance on the issues, and how they will help the average voter. As it was mentioned, they talk about "bending the curve" on healthcare costs, while the average voter doesn't have a clue what that means, or what doing that will do for them.

    The Dems need to grab a few issues that are winners for them, and explain simply and concisely how that will help people. What they'll get out of it if they vote Democrat. Right now, they don't do that.
