okay this is epic

2018-11-12 23:17:09 UTC  

Yeah, he also served in the military

"we must take action and focus on comprehensive immigration reform. Our immigration system is broken and often leaves people without access to citizenship for decades. We must start planning long term solutions for this problem including a pathway to citizenship that would include background checks, a steady employment history and paying fines."

2018-11-12 23:17:48 UTC  

hmmm he also said this

2018-11-12 23:18:31 UTC  

Of course, he isn't /our guy/, he's just a seemingly moderate democrat who hits enough notes to make him sympathetic to white working class.

2018-11-12 23:18:57 UTC  

>paying fines

2018-11-12 23:19:00 UTC  

That'll happen

2018-11-12 23:19:20 UTC  

He'll never get the dem nom

2018-11-12 23:19:23 UTC  

No way

2018-11-12 23:20:55 UTC  

The Dem establishment loves moderates like this for president though.

2018-11-12 23:21:23 UTC  

The Dems will have two full stages of primary debates, a Junior Varsity event, followed by the main event, first debate likely in July.

2018-11-12 23:21:25 UTC  

I think the best hope to head him off from getting the Democratic nomination is if Hilary squashes him in her own ambition to get the nomination.

2018-11-12 23:21:47 UTC  

I mean... Trump isn't our guy either. We won't genuinely get our guy for a while.

2018-11-12 23:22:10 UTC  

Hilary likes to be the moderate Democrat, Ojeda can challenge her for that title.

2018-11-12 23:22:12 UTC  

It's not impossible for a Democrat to support immigration restrictions from a pro working class standpoint

2018-11-12 23:22:23 UTC  

Trump has done more on immigration than I ever imagined.

2018-11-12 23:22:33 UTC  

he did less than I imagined tbh

2018-11-12 23:22:34 UTC  

The representative of the party's Progressive Wing will be between other candidates.

2018-11-12 23:22:52 UTC  

He’s going to stop birthright citizenship.

2018-11-12 23:22:54 UTC  

@Wood-Ape - OK/MN
Re: California
I'm afraid you may be right. I want everyone in IE to move to CA so we can retake one major blue city or county...and restore our great glory. But I'll settle for a coke.

2018-11-12 23:23:34 UTC  

@Nerv - VA If he's going to, then that would be great, but he hasn't

2018-11-12 23:23:39 UTC  


2018-11-12 23:24:02 UTC  

If he actually ends birthright citizenship, I will throw a party

2018-11-12 23:24:08 UTC  

@Freiheit - CA I shill for Jefferson Statehood. That would be a good place.

2018-11-12 23:25:04 UTC  

Hillary is rebranding as a progressive. Dems won't nominate a moderate. The only white guys who could remotely stand a chance are Biden and Bernie

2018-11-12 23:25:31 UTC  

What about Bloomberg?

2018-11-12 23:25:51 UTC  

@TMatthews Bernie the White guy

2018-11-12 23:25:55 UTC  

Nah. Biden could only win with an Obama endorsement

2018-11-12 23:25:58 UTC  


2018-11-12 23:26:10 UTC  

Bernie is white as far as 98% of people are concerned

2018-11-12 23:26:57 UTC  

Bloomberg can't hope to win black voters over Harris or Booker. Bernie can win without them if minorities split between candidates

2018-11-12 23:27:13 UTC  

I want Bernie as the nominee

2018-11-12 23:27:26 UTC  

"eh, why vote for him if he'll die anyway"

2018-11-12 23:27:38 UTC  

People know he's Jewish and that's not regarded as the same

2018-11-12 23:27:50 UTC  

I actually think Bernie beats Trump because he at least talks about working class issues

2018-11-12 23:28:10 UTC  

in the end it won't matter

2018-11-12 23:28:16 UTC  

@Ald The vast majority of people don't make that distinction

2018-11-12 23:28:16 UTC  

people aren't gonna vote for the skeletor

2018-11-12 23:28:53 UTC  

plus, the election is in 2020, and that still gives him 2 more years to age

2018-11-12 23:28:58 UTC  

he's gonna look like a coffin by then

2018-11-12 23:29:06 UTC  

he already looked pretty bad in 2016
