    They did until he disagreed with them on a few things....his approval went from 60% to 30% not because of his work in the Senate, but because he disagreed with the party. But hey.....maybe your issues with Joe run deeper, not sure.....

    What's your biggest issue with him? The one thing that caused you to call him a d-bag....

    The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week, hitting its lowest level in more than 48 1/2 years, as the labor market continues to strengthen.

    Other data on Thursday showed manufacturing activity in the mid-Atlantic region accelerated in July, driven by a surge in new orders received by factories. But manufacturers reported paying more for inputs.

    They were less upbeat about business conditions and capital expenditures over the next six months, a sign that import tariffs were starting to hurt business sentiment.

    Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 8,000 to a seasonally adjusted 207,000 for the week ended July 14, the lowest reading since early December 1969, the Labor Department said.
    The good and the bad from the labor report....

    Yknow, you say that....yet several Republicans disagreed with Trump being President, but it didn't cause theirs to tumble. Perhaps Republicans are more forgiving..... who knows.

    Or just maybe circumstances were different...

    Lets also not pretend that politicians that were anti Trump received no blow back. They also almost all have back tracked or just joined his team.

    Martha Roby says hi. Everyone that has criticized Trump and then fallen in line for fear of backlash says hi.

    This statement isn't even remotely true.

    Yeah, it was pretty obvious. You posted a tweet from Saavedra. 92 replied, including the Saavedra tweet, and said (more or less), "No one in the Democratic party cares what this douchebag says." But hey, you do you.
    Also - Saavedra's tweet doesn't negate the video of what she said.....it wasn't his opinion, it was hers.
    And? OMG, a 24 year-old political neophyte gets flustered!!
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Don't forget everyone who's retiring.

    That's not what I've heard......apparently there's a lot of concern that she's too far left, whatever that means.

    there are a lot of folks telling folks that there is a lot of concern that she's too far left. that's what concern trolls do. maybe she is, maybe she isn't. that's up to her district to decide, and apparently they liked her better than crowley.

    that still has nothing to do with lieberman's opinion being valued within the democratic Party.
    The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

    What's your beef with Joe? Because he hated on Obama? Or because of something else?

    It's like too much candy? Or too much money? How can you have too much "left"?
