1. Manchin is not a real Democrat if he is the sole "yea" vote from the caucus...

But does that really surprise anyone? The GOP is ALWAYS held to the line and votes accordingly...Democrats? Herding cats...

4. To Be Fair, the Speculation Is That Manchin...

...does not want to be the deciding vote that confirms Kavanaugh.

If that’s true, Collins and Murkowski voting “no”—-still no sure thing even now—pretty much guarantees a “no” from Manchin. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

9. Doug Jones isn't on the ballot again until 2020.

 

Manchin has to face WV voters next month.

6. And Perhaps We Can Finally End The Myth Of HIs Voting With DEms

most of the time. He has actually voted with Comrade Trump 61% of the time

8. Manchin needs to go. I don't understand what is going on in West Virginia

And why that population is the way it is but surely a real dem who actually votes for dems could also get elected. It is maddening to always hear his name announced as a flip vote. He needs to register as an independent and stop being financed by the dem party.

And I hope this post is not against the rules. Just saying how I feel.

10. Tom Perez better be on the phone to his office right now

if anything, just to tell him to face the music and drop the D. Also, the party better not send him one cent ever again for anything.

13. That would be suicide for Manchin

Dems tolerate him because he's supposed to be our +1 vote on the vitally important calls. If he starts doing that job for the Republicans instead, then we might as well just have a Republican in his seat.
