Democrats: The Party of Youth!
« on: October 10, 2017, 12:29:41 AM »

http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/senate/354526-feinstein-running-for-reelection-next-year?rnd=1507559392

Feinstein says she is running for reelection

FWIW - Diane Feinstein is currently 84 years old.

I guess her husband Dick Blum needs a few more Congressional favors.....

Maybe she's looking to break Strom Thurmond's record.

The Democratic Party really does have a youth leadership crisis.  They had no one on the national stage in 2016 that was below retirement age, and their prospects for 2020 don't look much better right now.  The Republicans have lots of young national leaders.  It is just unfortunate that we elected a crazy man with the onset of dementia.

It is unfortunate that so many elected republicans like Corker are out of touch with a majority of their voters on a number of issues and that "a crazy man with the onset of dementia" is found more trustworthy than the political establishment in Washington.

Has anyone seen VandyWhit?

Congress certainly shouldn't get a pass on their lack of trustworthiness, but I think it says more about the ignorance and gullibility of the voting public that anyone "trusts" Trump to do anything except line his own pockets and stroke his own ego.

what do you think the rest of them have been doing? 
..... and I'm not convinced that is what Trump is doing.  detractors certainly seem to believe it, but i'd like to see evidence instead of innuendo before passing my own judgement... so far, the left has done nothing but ride 'fear' of what he'll do, without one solid substantial piece of evidence to found their fear. (that i've seen)

The top three House Democratic leaders are 76 (Pelosi), 77 (Steny Hoyer) and 76 (Jim Clyburn). The average age of the Democratic House leadership is 76. That’s even older than the 70-year old average of Soviet Politburo members in the age of Brezhnev, shortly before the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Pelosi has served in the House for 35 years, Hoyer for 35 years, and Clyburn for 23 years for an average tenure of 31 years. Pelosi and Hoyer have led the House Democrats for the past 14 years.

The election's not toll 2020.  One of those Democrats above is going to win by a landslide.

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
