Bill Nelson goes full Republican again. Votes to confirm Gina Haspel.

Does he really think that being Rick Scott light is going to result in him winning in November?

Really? Donnie, this is kinda rich coming from you. It was Schumer, Primo Establishment Democrat #1 Center Right Gimp, who said "For every progressive we lose on the left, we'll pick up 2-3 Moderate Republicans in the suburbs" during the Clinton fail-fest vs. Trump.

So, of course, another Centrist Establishment Democrat like Nelson thinks exactly what you are asking in disbelief.

Voting to confirm Gina Haspel is disqualifying from ever getting my vote. It should be disqualifying for any public office ever again. A vote for her is worse than Obama's "We don't look back, we look forward" when deciding to condone war criminals' actions from the Bush Administration.

Confirming a torturer and destroyer of evidence in violation of a Federal Judicial ruling to head the CIA is just an indication of how incredibly morally bankrupt the United States is. Our government is a fucking hideous force of evil around the globe. It could be a force for good. It won't ever be if we keep electing people who can vote to confirm a person like Haspel to head the CIA...

As you know, I donít mind a centrist democrat or republican, if one existed anymore. But this isnít a centrist vote.

Rick Scottís commercial tonight was Bill Nelson votes the Pelosi party line. Yet, his vote today shows thatís not true. So if he is going to be framed as a liberal democrat, he isnít going to be picking up moderate votes anyway.

Honestly, his vote on an anonymous bureaucrat isn't going to sway the votes of the small sliver of persuadable "moderate" voters one way or another. What casting a vote for a pro-torture neoconservative does do, however, is potentially depress his base turnout and that's stupid political strategy, especially in a Midterm.

BINGO.

You feel it already. There's no real way to vote for someone who can find a torturing war criminal suitable for any public office. She'd likely be confirmed anyway, no Democrat should put their name behind supporting a war criminal.

So we are going to be taking children from families who cross the border, shipping them to military bases, and housing them in warehouses. The party of family morals.

Also worth noting of trump calling them "animals" while sending kids to military camps. Hitsory people, history.
Scary times right now.
