... hard to miss these days.

He's caused all kinds of rifts in the GOP party, pitting one faction against another - the same way he's historically pitted his employees against each other, and continues to do so among WH staff.

No doubt the biggest rift right now is between those who think they can continue to weather the growing storm and those who think it's time to cut their losses and save their own asses - along with the party "brand".

I am enjoying the spectacle.

They don't appear to be using the space they're granted by all this Republican civil war stuff.

All of the Dem's problems remain. The party is fractured and is messaging is off. And critically, the average voter can't really say what the Democratic part is about, other than what Republicans say the party is about.

The Dems must have a clear and simple message and they must shout it from every mountain top there is. This waiting for the GOP to collapse and assume power because they're the only one standing isn't helping.

More if this, "the republican party is going down!" shit DU has bubbled about since its inception.

The Rs are fully united in their singular mission to defeat the evil liberal boogyman. Anything past that is simply part of their petulant, immature histrionics.

I'm observering their infighting. It's spilling into the open.

I realize they hate us.
