Those were the days

Mondale and Ferraro would be Republicans today. He’s right about Amy Klobachar, but the party is too leftist to allow it. I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 but I will in 2020

Gutless

I’m tired of reporters and interviewers not calling out lies when they hear them. We’ll never get the truth if they don’t have the knowledge and the guts to question and require background information.

There is no way Mondale would be a Republican today with the rightward lurch of the GOP. Mondale would even be considered radical in the center-right Democratic Party -the spectrum of American politics has shifted so far right since Reagan.
