Watched Bernie's Town Hall on CNN last night and was very disappointed. I felt he missed a golden opportunity, really the same one he missed during the campaign.
He was repeatedly asked questions beginning with "What are you [or the Dems] going to do to stop....."
His answers NEVER mentioned the fact that the Dems are in the minority and can DO very little to stop the Rep juggernaut.
His answers NEVER exhorted people to get busy and elect a Dem majority in 2018.
In my view this is the ONLY conversation anyone should be having right now. Of them all, Bernie is the one actor with the audience and credibility to forward that conversation.
All the whining about what a bad person Trump is, how awesome Obama is, how we need to impeach Trump (leaving what, the alt-right ideologue Pence in the White House???), blah, blah, blah is not only wasting and energy, it is distracting, leaving people with a sense that they are in action, but actually producing nothing.
With any luck only one new Supreme Court justice will be approved in those two years. If the Dems have a majority in either house after 2018 they can stop the juggernaut, but until then they can only fight a holding action.
The voters need to focus primarily on how to elect a Dem majority in 2018 and spokespeople like Bernie MUST take the lead. Everything else is just hot air.
