Report: “Doesn’t help to whine,” Barack Obama told House Democrats
THAT’S THE MESSAGE BARACK OBAMA HAD FOR HOUSE DEMOCRATS IN A ZOOM CALL DURING THEIR MESSAGING RETREAT.
ACCORDING TO PUNCHBOWL NEWS.. OBAMA TOLD THE GROUP “Democrats have a tendency to complain about what we didn’t get done rather than talking about what we did get done,”
AND WE SEE THAT IN ACTION.
TAKE SOT- SEN. BERNIE SANDERS (I-VT)
<<”what has bothered me very much is the republicans are laughing all the way to election day they have not had to cast one bloody vote.”>>
TAKE SOT- REP. RO KHANNA (D-CA)
<<”The filibuster is a relic of the Jim Crow era. It has no moral legitimacy. It should have been removed years ago and it certainly should be removed now.””>>
Annie Andersen: OBAMA THEN GAVE EXAMPLES OF THE CHALLENGES HE HAD PASSING THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT…
““If we can get some stuff done, some major domestic initiative, some progress on climate…there will come a point where you decide if you are getting nothing or getting that.”
AND WE DID SEE CONGRESS DO THAT WITH THE INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE SPLITTING UP AID INTO SEPARATE BILLS. BUT SOME IN THE PARTY ARGUED THAT WAS A MISTAKE.
TAKE SOT- REP. Cori Bush (D-MO)
<<”What we had was a bit of leverage which was having the coupling of the two bills, the BIF, the infrastructure package, as well as the build back better package. Having those coupled together was the only leverage we had. And what did the caucus do, we tossed it.”>>
Annie Andersen: As the focus shifts to a winning strategy for the midterms –
Democrats may want to strive for, in obama’s words ‘the wins you can get’
