General Mattis a class act.

General Mattis couldn`t get along in the Trump administration and that is fair.  He was on `This Week` Martha Radish tried her damned to get him to unload on Trump and if we hadn`t stopped sending pallets of cash to Iran, maybe they`d be nice and not attempt to stop the free flow of the world`s oil.   But Mattis said `i`m out of the circle of command so I`m reluctant to criticize`.  What a impressive (now old school) refreshing  attitude! 

Too often in this day and age someone leaves the administration, writes a book and they comment on everything including how the president wipes his butt. 

But Mattis is a class act.

Very possibly Dem VP nominee.

The question is, the guy that has a "Pete 2020" bumpersticker on his Tesla with Kombucha brewing in the trunk, would he support a "Warren/Mattis" ticket?

(Very possibly Dem VP nominee.)

If it's Steve Bullock that Mattis is running with, that would be a strong ticket.

I’m quite certain that you can count on the D disunity factor of ‘16 as having been a “one-off”.  ESP. with Bernie fading rapidly as a contender.

Re: General Mattis a class act.

We are at the point in US political history where BOTH Republicans and Democrats see ourselves in the place of the "rabbit running for our lives" rather than the hound chasing his dinner.   All hands on both sides will be on deck to support their team.   To be honest though, us Republicans are actually the "rabbit" that`s running for his life, a Democrat sweep in 2020 is the curtains for us and define "us" however you will.   Too many WWII vets with the last name Anderson or Kruger passed away and too many with the last name Perez and Hernandez have replaced them with fresh new voting cards that say "political party: Democrat".  

Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert reading the "news" every night has the funny pages crowd riled up and ready to vote.   So Biden or Warren with Mattis or satan for a running mate will probably win in a populace that is running against President Trump.

The WW2 vets, like my Dad, who lived around where we grew up and in our extended family were by a very large margin Democrats.  Particularly the substantial number of them who were farmers.

Re: General Mattis a class act.

Bruce, I mean no disrespect to your father, perhaps he would`ve voted for Cory Booker and Pete Butigeg and the rest.   However, most of the WWII generation wouldn`t fit in this new Democrat/Socialist party of today.

See, these guys aren`t welcome in the otherwise big Democrat tent.

Re: General Mattis a class act.

I knew quite a few WW II vets like that in our area also.  Funny thing is the way they lived their lives they would be considered ultra conservative today.

Re: General Mattis a class act.

It seemed like Democrats used to allow their decisions to be made in the smoke filled rooms and the Hippies and Blacks would go along.   Until, hmmm maybe the turning point was Obama and when Howard Dean unsuccessfully tried to court NASCAR fans that have "Confederate flags in the back window of their pickup".   That was when Democrats got the brain fart of giving the middle finger to those with calloused hands and courting solely the entitlement class.

Republicans kept the smoke filled room until 2016 when Trump broke through the smoke ceiling, showing that you can give the elites the middle finger and still become president.   I don`t know, the elites will probably eventually get the last laugh, but we got 4 years of hope out of it.

But Truman, JFK RFK, MLK and all those olde thyme Democrats wouldn`t fit in the socialist/ Democrats.  But I have no doubt that all those oldtimers would`ve changed with the times and fit right in.
