"I'm a Democratic Socialist". Sorry, just had to throw that in supporting the thread title. But my point is, in this time of the radicalization of the Republican Party, as extreme Plutocrats using extreme propaganda to create a cult of Americans to vote for Republicans has led to the crazed radicalization of the party, accelerated by a Hitleresque cult figure trump, the politics DEMAND that Democrats offer a home to 'big tent' America from progressives to 'sane Republicans'.

And I'm not seeing it. Biden is sort of 'in the middle', saying 'hey, progressives you can be ok voting for me, and hey Republicans, you can vote for me', but I don't really see a big effort especially to market to non-trump Republicans to be welcomed and encouraged to support Democrats instead. Especially by offering them 'conservative Democrats' in red areas.

Instead, it's sort of saying, 'you can pick, hold your nose and vote for trump, or vote for someone you don't like as a Democrat who isn't reaching out to you at all, or just don't vote', and I think a lot are voting for neither.

This seems negligent, not to 'reform' American politics in light of the radicalization of the Republican Party, instead trying to just 'preserve' the same two party system saying 'we hope Republicans become less crazy', instead of trying to shift American politics to let Democrats dominate and to really push the trumpistas into irrelevancy winning few races.

Reagan got it as a marketing person, reaching out to "Reagan Democrats", and despite being pretty terrible won a 49 state re-election. When's the last time you heard about "Biden Republicans"?

Democrats - good at governing, bad at politics​

Jesus...where have you been the past year and a half? The Democrats have absolutely SUCKED at governing.

From vaccine mandates to the Afghanistan debacle to their deliberate attack on the oil industry, that created the current out-of-control inflation...and their work with the Globalists...the Democrats have totally screwed things up. On purpose.

And speaking of "propaganda", are you totally unaware of the House dog and pony show?

btw, Biden isn't sort of "in the middle". He a puppet to the Obama radicals.

You don't know how to dismiss anything. You supposidly have dismissed me multiple times yet still reply like the lying comments you post. Your amateur comments are idiotic at best and your support of the big lie shows your comments lack any integrity. You are doing nothing but projecting and excusing Trump's tariff war and showing everyone you know jack shit about what's going on.

Democrats are terrible at governing.

In fact, both Partys suck at both governing and politicking, right now.

The OP has it backwards. Democrats are great at the politics. They are masters of the double standard, mud slinging, fear mongering, over promising, finger pointing aspect of the political game. Democrats never let a crisis go to waste. When they get power and have a chance to governor they without fail screw it up. Infighting back room deals and lobbyists paybacks are hurtles they trip over resulting in missed opportunities and often nothing more than DOA bills for show. But they sure do talk a good game

I'm laughing so hard I can barely type.
When I settle down I'll post the 5 million reasons that is a joke.

If Democrats were good at governing they would not be in the predictiment they are in.
