At some point these people need to ask themselves: Am I actually the bad person here?
A little self reflection coupled with some self awareness would do the socialist caucus of the Democrat Party some good since many – if not all – of them seem to be in some stage of a mental breakdown.
Leading idiot Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri took the cake as and won the trophy for Dumbest Democrat as she seeks to convince her party to vote on Biden’s “Build Back Better Framework.”
She released a statement on Monday so asinine, so incredibly juvenile and ridiculous, it will make you laugh out loud. Harping on the far-left claptrap of Democrats today, Rep. Bush charged West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin with a slew of “isms and ic” words (racist, misogynistic, homophobic, etc etc. ) after he expressed concerned over the trillion-dollar spending bill.
Bush published the statement after Manchin have a definitive ‘no’ on the current language in the bill.
(Is there even any language written?)
Manchin said could not support legislation that contained “shell games” and “budget gimmicks” that hid its true cost and the impact it could have on the national debt.

Here’s Bush’s response:
Joe Manchin does not get to dictate the future of our country. pic.twitter.com/aG7zBuyMQy

The far-left Democrats’ main argument is that somehow Biden’s “Build Back Better Framework” would “benefit black, brown and indigenous communities” – and then made claim that “Joe Manchin’s opposition to the Build Back Better Act is anti-Black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant.”
That’s the beauty of being a radical leftist: you are permitted to lob these ridiculous claims without any burden of proof or evidence — and other liberals will believe it!
Fire from Cori Bush on Joe Manchin: “Joe Manchin does not get to dictate the future of our country. …. Joe Manchin’s opposition to the Build Back Better Act is anti-Black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant.”

Critics were quick to note that Bush’s attack might actually make the situation worse in a 50/50 Senate where Manchin’s vote was absolutely necessary as long as the package had no Republican support.
If Cori Bush thinks playing the race card from the bottom of the deck will bring Manchin in, well… BUSH: “Joe Manchin’s opposition to the Build Back Better Act is anti-Black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant.” Yep- this is totally getting done this week.

Oh man Cori Bush is about to see if calling Joe Manchin a racist helps get his vote or not. https://t.co/LJB9kPBi7t

The Democratic Party has been in complete shambles for weeks while Manchin and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema oppose some of the more sweeping programs and larger ticket items in the package.
The left wing members of the Democratic Party in the House have argued that the package does not go far enough, saying they won’t support the bipartisan infrastructure bill that already passed the Senate until they reach a deal on the spending package as well.
