Cory Booker broke a longstanding precedent and engaged in a bit of moral preening over the nomination of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.
John Lewis has decided that Trump is not a "legitimate" president.
What is going on with these people?
It dawned on me today that they feel it is necessary to protect an important Democrat constituency, that is, black voters.
I believe, under Trump, the 90/10 numbers that Dems have built with black voters is the softest part of their coalition, and the race hucksters and black politicians who rely on this as the source for their jobs, let alone their power, recognize this and must do whatever they can to keep it going for the next 4 (8?) years.
Like accusations that Trump will somehow be less friendly to the LGBT community (come on, he waved their flag at an event and he thanked the GOP convention to cheering his line about equality for them), there is the likelihood that his policies will actually help the black community and inner cities and I think he actually means he is going to work on improving conditions in the cities.
So, buckle up, because these people are not going to let go peacefully. The Democrats had made it clear that they have one playbook in opposition, and it's the same one they've had for 40 years.
It's old, it's worn, it's tattered, and it's basically been published for everyone to see.
The GOP has gotten much smarter at this game, and the public has grown weary of it.
I predict doom and gloom for Liberals for the next few years, if they don't truly revisit their worldview and how they oppose Trump.
