We also have an EXCLUSIVE ONE ON ONE Interview with Brook Hines, a Daring Woman Political Operative who dared to challenge the conventional ?'wisdom"? of the democratic party that the best hope for the democratic party, nay not just the democratic party but the democratic voters is another democrat cut from republican clothe. Dare we question Rep. Patrick Murphy who proclaimed he left his REPUBLICAN VOTING HISTORY BEHIND, when he jumped into a democratic costume for his last run for office, and yet, and yet - ONCE ELECTED formed a "BUY-PARTISAN" caucus charmingly framed as "United Solutions". UNITED BEHIND a REPUBLICAN benefits gutting, Wall Street embracing, TPP loving and XL Pipeline promoting agenda.
PATRICK, PATRICK, PATRICK, how quick ye've changed. RUN as a dem yet vote as a REPULSICAN ???? We dems who supported you as a less painful pill than the lunatic Alllen West the heavily armed Tea Party general who has since returned to the poisonous swamps from when he came.
The democratic party has so embraced diversity and open debate that when the Democratic Progressve Caucus called for a open primary - has found itself under the shadow of calls for its severance from the party proper (whatever) the NORTHERN "dem" poobahs decide that is, this cycle.
One thing we can count on, not only a lively discusson on PNN but the party moneyship - oops LEADERSHIP, one more cardboard dem. JOIN US today at 2pm!
