      Then when they do, they’re told to go s**t in their hats because their involvement doesn’t involve supporting neoliberal corpodems.

      It just seems like such an odd, self-defeating strategy, and one wonders what they expect to gain from it. You have these condescending comments about millennials, the deplorables thing, the whole “far left” smear, the sneering contempt for white men in general, Michelle Obama scolding women who voted for Trump, all designed to accomplish…what exactly? Even Trump, who spends so much of his time insulting people, never insults the voters directly. What is wrong with these people?

        every local Democratic election board,  and all election workers. Obviously, they plan on stealing 2020, so they don’t care if Millennials vote for them or not. They sure as hell don’t care if Progressives vote for them.

        The Fix Is In. Guaranteed.

          My educated guess ( “educated” meaning wisdom and observation rather than political science ) that it’s two things:

          The first is just hubris of being in an elitist bubble.

          The second, and main thing, is that they think they are attacking these groups in isolation: millenials, white working class, the “far left” whatever as though they are fragmented ends that can be removed one by one. The neolibs are too blinded by their own self-styled mantra that they don’t realize that there is lots of overlap of common concerns among these groups they hurl snark at. Enough common ground to energize a political bloc to prevent noeliberals from getting into the white house…..again.

            ….similar to how repubs scapegoat “welfare queens” and illegal immigrants. They want people to focus their anger on a caricature of a blue collar white guy. The rest just seem completely illogical.

            You make a good point about the overlap as the various identity groups they try to court may also be millennials, far left etc.. It’s ironic how they paint Sanders as divisive when he’s the only one with a unifying message.

            Trump is their gravy train. They just cannot allow a Progressive to be the nominee – ever.

            They will steal the nomination for Biden (or whomever pays them the most money to buy the nomination, but IMO, Biden must have been told he’s “the chosen one”) and when he loses, no harm no foul for them. It’s a ONE PARTY system. Look at what Pelosi just passed in the House – PayGo – a REPUBLICAN RULE.

            Democrats in Congress don’t care if they lose to Trump in 2020. That’s the truth and a fact. They do not care if Trump wins in 2020.

          But, it would appear that Pennsylvania, with all our iVotronics in place and dysfunctional party committees from the Commonwealth down to local are so ill-equipped to monitor another stolen election, that I wouldn’t be that shocked.

          Imagine… Forty plus percent of the electorate being told to give the likes of Biden a break.

          Cheat, then propagandize … Rinse and repeat will be the motto, Joe, eh?

          Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      Biden has been assured the election fix is in for him or he would never have said something so freakin’ stupid…. knowing the Millennials are the largest generational voting block these days.

      No wonder they support Bernie! Biden’s wrongheaded, arrogant attitude is exactly the reason they do support Bernie.

      Biden goes out of his way to alienate a segment of the population. Between millenials and deplorables, his base is looking smaller all the time. If Democrats are seriously considering Biden for president, they better get him under control. The grumpy old man thing is already done very well my Trump. As Jimmy Carter demonstrated, the “what’s wrong with you people” approach doesn’t work.

      The Democrats do not want control of the government. Then they might actually have to govern, instead of enabling the Republicans.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
      If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
      Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
      Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.

      We dont have much for him, either.

      He is playing to the group infuriated by Clinton’s loss – the same people who blame Sanders and Stein – and still blame Nader for 2000.  He also probably doesnt think comments like this will matter to them – he is probably right.

      If this is his strategy, the only way he wins the primaries is through even greater dishonesty and dirtier tactics than even Clinton used.  Most likely, much more direct control over media (using Russia as the excuse) and voting machines.

      He still wouldnt win the general, where turnout matters a lot more.

      Millenials are almost certainly going to be voting for Bernie, or Warren if he doesnt run.  Biden never had much chance with us.

      the BOOMER generation entitled and cruel. I had my SS and medicare screw M4ALL. Maybe if millennial would also think similarly “If I can have my M4All, I will vote for someone who takes away your free medicare and Social security checks”

      Never expect different result by following the previous steps

      Just don’t ask him to provide the demographics to back that up, or to explain who’ll be doing his canvassing and phone banking.

      Moderate Republicans will expect your staff to do it, Joe. And good luck reconciling the party platform to offering what they want to hear.

      Only a Sanders can bridge the differences among Democrats, and reach out to populist minded Republicans. Biden’s political vision is rooted in the dustbin of history. “Hippy bashing” is a tactic that will only produce derision.

      Twenty years ago Biden’s thinking would have been out of date. Today it’s just outright self parody.

      Remember when the 2004 began, Lieberman was way out in front of everyone.  Everyone remember how that turned out?

      Name recognition will only get you so far.

      pissed me off worse than some of his past gaffs. He really messed up this time.

      Biden can just remove himself from consideration for president right now. He’s an idiot.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".
