Not bad of a read, actually. More like wishful thinking though and I am pretty sure you will be disappointed once again.fredo wrote: ↑Fri Aug 09, 2019 5:04 pmThey aren't the same. The Dems, and I am tired of it, are simply not willing to dump deals or not finish what had been started by the GOP. If they do not stand up this time then they've all but declared themselves enablers.

I think the Dems really have no idea how to deal with the issue of China, for example. So they are letting it slide and see if they can pick up the scraps after Trump is done with it. Meaning they hope he will fail miserably, which is not that unlikely, and they will blame him for the ridiculous tactics (fairly so) and promise “to start fresh” upon their victory.
Or maybe they just support it. Maybe not fully, but to some extent. Didn’t Warren talk about how it is pretty great and tariffs are the answer?
Or maybe they simply can’t swing one way or the other because they fear to loose votes? Say yes to free trade and loose those who oppose it, perhaps Michigan, Pensilvania, etc? One of the main campaign promises Trump was running on was the transatlantic trade agreement or, to be precise, getting rid of it. Democrats saw the support he received from that and they are keeping tabs. Maybe it is not that bad of a strategy to wait out, let people feel the pain when it comes (and it will) and then blast Trump for his policy, etc.
I don’t know. I’ve had a couple of beers and will go back to having a couple more and hopefully find something decent to watch on Netflix, lol.
Edit: Didn’t take long to find. I was a bit off about what Warren said, but nonetheless:
