House Democrats Carefully Attempt To Sell Impeach In Their Home Districts Or Something

If this was such a slam dunk why would they have to be careful about it? They would just lay out the facts, right? No hyperbole, no soft-shoe

Back Home, House Democrats Tread Carefully on Impeachment and 2020

Orange County was the epicenter of the 2018 House Democratic takeover, where Republicans lost four seats in what was once the heart of Ronald Reagan conservatism in California. On Saturday night, as three of the victorious Democrats were honored at an annual political dinner, a new battle was on everyone’s minds: How to protect those gains in 2020 by selling voters on the impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

At the dinner, Representative Harley Rouda warned Democrats not to “sit on our laurels.” Representative Mike Levin solemnly said “the times have found us.” And Representative Gil Cisneros, who came out for the inquiry only last week, plugged his campaign website twice to ask for donations and noted, “The Republicans are coming after me now.”

A tricky balancing act is now underway for House Democrats as they return to their districts for a two-week recess that will double as a crucial time to frame a coast-to-coast debate over impeachment and the nation’s priorities.

Even as surveys showed more Americans embracing an impeachment investigation, voters talked mostly about issues like health care and the economy over the weekend at town hall meetings and party gatherings with House Democrats. Those members, especially in battleground districts, responded by highlighting their policy accomplishments and goals — while at the same time attempting to shape public opinion on impeachment and prepare voters for coming G.O.P. attacks.

hat Democratic messaging challenge came into sharp relief during interviews with voters like Donna Artukovic, a retired teacher who was volunteering at the Orange County dinner. Ms. Artukovic expressed nervousness about what an impeachment battle could mean for Democratic candidates.

“I am afraid it’s going to hurt them,” she said. “A lot of people — even who don’t like Trump — don’t like impeachment.”

Why do they have to be so careful? Because they know it’s only really popular among their unhinged base. They know that the more they talk about it, the more people will want information on Joe Biden and his son’s activities. They’ll want to know what Adam Schiff, tasked by Pelosi with leading the impeachment inquiry, and other Democrats were doing contacting Ukraine to get dirt on Trump. They’ll get a good look at how unhinged Schiff is, and see that this is about hatred. They’ll wonder why Democrats don’t just try to beat him at the ballot box.

The first independent polling since Democrats began the inquiry carries reassuring news for them — as well as some cautionary signs. A CBS News survey released Sunday indicated that 55 percent of Americans support an impeachment investigation, with Democrats now overwhelmingly supportive and independents about evenly divided. But only 42 percent of those surveyed said Mr. Trump deserved to be impeached, with 22 percent saying it was too soon to determine. This uncertainty is why House Democratic leaders are at pains to emphasize that they are not yet seeking to impeach Mr. Trump, but rather that they want to conduct a thorough investigation into his actions with the Ukranians.

And that’s also why they have to be careful, because Americans have seen this show before: Russia Russia Russia didn’t turn out particularly well for Democrats. This all just makes Democrats look like petulant children upset that they lost an election and are unable to accept the outcome. And with Trump, he’s more than happy to let everyone know that the Democrats are crazy. He doesn’t play nice like previous Republicans. Yes, yes, he may go overboard at times, but, think that doesn’t get people to pay attention to his points? And get people the average person to see his points?

Democrats should also remember that what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. If they want to set the condition which political disagreements are grounds for impeachment inquiries, Republicans can do the same against a Democrat president.

    Americans are now in favor of impeachment (55 to 45); even 20% of Republicans in the latest poll.

    Now, sadly, Mr. Trump is advocating civil war.

    “….If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.”

    18 USC 2383
    “Whoever incites… any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States… shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

    • Kye says:

      Every comment you make is a lie, Fredo. Exactly which part of Trump’s opinion incites rebellion? Funny how when Trump employs a hypothetical you idiots consider it treason or rebellion but when unscrupulous communists in your own party lay siege to America with a coup because they REFUSE TO ACCEPT LOSING AN ELECTION, and continue for three years you see no problem. Also funny when the VP states ON VIDEO TAPE he effected the dismissal of a Ukrainian prosecutor to cover his dopey sons illegal dealings that’s all okay with closed minded partisan hacks like yourself. Your blatant political dishonesty makes your participation in our democratic republic a laugh.

      Trump 2020 Get rid of the Fredo’s!

      • Jeff’s motives are really puzzling to me. He can’t possibly believe the stuff he writes. It is too ridiculous, even for him. The quote that he himself posted above does not support his own statement. And he isn’t getting any positive reinforcement from his silliness here. So, unless he is getting paid to post here and drive up clicks on behalf of Mr Teach, I must conclude that “Jeff” is actually a computer science project created by some sophomore college class. Thus, he doesn’t need rational motives, only programming.

        It is interesting that there is a Turing test to identify the point at which computer entities cannot be distinguished from live humans. There should be another test to show the point at which live humans can no longer be distinguished from computer entities.

      I wonder why you people never link to these polls. Was it this one?

      https://today.yougov.com/opi/surveys/results#/survey/72f3bf66-dee3-11e9-b4a9-9f0e9e31e4a3/question/9b91b2b7-dee3-11e9-ba0e-c7fcd6994022/toplines

      If so, you’re twin already claimed the same thing and what you are claiming the poll says is a incorrect. The question asked was:

      “If President Donald Trump suspended military aid to Ukraine in order to incentivize the country’s officials to investigate his political rival, Joe Biden, and his son, would you support or oppose impeachment?”

      Even I would support impeachment in such a scenario.

      • Professor Hale says:

        On what basis? It is long standing American foreign policy to assist in anti-corruption efforts of foreign governments. it’s not trump’s fault that Biden was corrupt. Nor should Biden get a free pass just because he is running against other Democrats for the nomination. Biden is NOT Trump’s political rival. Biden is Harris/Buttigeig/Yang/Warren’s political rival. They are the ones who benefit if Biden goes down in flames. Trump couldn’t care less which emotional midget runs against him in 2020.

    TEACH typed: Republicans can do the same against a Democrat president.

    They did. Remember Bill Clinton? Remember Moscow Mitch declaring his goal was to make Mr. Obama a one term president? Merrick Garland?

      Looks like Troll Central finally dragged him out of whatever bar he was in and dragged him back to Mommy’s basement.

      And we got only one of those.

      PS If the Demos are so Hell-bent on this, why did Pelosi Galore recess the House for 2 weeks?

  4. John says:

    Teach shouldn’t you be updating the newer poll results on impeachment ?

    • formwiz says:

      You mean the ones that oversample Demos by about 10 points?

    Trump, you magnificent bastard!

    “I would like you to do us a favor,” Trump said. “I would like you to find out what happened with the whole situation with Ukraine, with <>bCrowdStrike. The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation.”

    Okay, raise your hand if you knew:

    Robert Soros (son of George) is married to
    Melissa Schiff (sister of Adam).

    Imagine the produce from the spawn of that gene pool.

    I got the piece of the puzzle that out all things in perspective.

    Ginsberg had stents placed in her pancreatic ducts. Those can not stay in place for more than a few weeks. That means she is receiving palliative care for her pancreatic cancer. Which means she will die in a few months. Although the witch seems to defy all laws of medical care.

    Thus Trump gets another Supreme nomination. Of all things the communist fear is a stacked court. How does the DNC cheat? They impeach Trump or at least prolong the process in the hope that by some miracle he loses the election or to reduce his chance of making a nomination by saying he is under investigation. I could not understand why the Dems where stupid enough to try for impeachment as they will likely lose the House with this move. But in their minds the Court is the ultimate pride and they will do anything to make it liberal.p

    • formwiz says:

      My wife told me the same thing about the stents (oncology nurse 5 years).

      Another point about this whistleblower, he was passed over by Trump. (S)He thinks he’s Mark Felt, but there was no there there.

      But in their minds the Court is the ultimate pride and they will do anything to make it liberal.

      No, they can’t win at the ballot box (same sex marriage, etc.), so the courts are all they have and Trump is repopulating the lower courts because Zippy was too lazy. Now the Demos have no more of a bench on the bench than they do among office holders.
