    Admitting that brain damage made him more conservative. Got it.

    Being elected gave him the freedom to shout “suckers!” and sprint to the right.

    He’s just doing what Democrats do.

        I call them Democrats. I’m not going to call them the only thing they aspire to be.

    I don’t really know anything about this guy, but i highly doubt he was even ‘progressive’ in the first place? What exactly did he do before, just say nice things, hence being ‘progressive’? Whatever.

      He was (and still is to a certain extent) fairly progressive for a US politician. A look at his campaign issues page shows that he is pro LGBTQ rights, pro worker’s rights, pro gun control, pro Medicare, and so on.

      It’s really his outspoken and unequivocal support for Israel that has soured a lot of people on the Left.

        OK then it is strange he’s going around saying he has been freed from progressivism.

        Do centrist democrats talk like this?

    Can’t wait to be told that he is absolutely the best possible person for the job, and that it is absurd to even think about not voting for him despite his stated views. US Democracy is so cool and great.

    When the onion said he “respecced” they were not joking lol this man took a 180 turn. Everything he ran on and got him elected went out the window.

      The guy had a stroke and he hasn’t been the same since. He’s been doing and saying things that alienate his base (disavowing progressivism, being a cheerleader for Israel, etc.)
