    Literally:


    Some people might call that petty, but I don't think so. Word on the street is that Dems are planning to play hardball with Republicans later this year. Either way, let's hope #bothsides can leave it all on the field!

    Discuss?

    Democrats are officially tired of losing.

    Weve now reached elderly softball political smack. How much lower can we go?

    They shouldn't let something petty like implicit support for Russian agents breaking into their networks and stealing their information stand in the way of something really important like softball.

    To be fair, I think they're trying to get ahead of what promises to be rather busy midterm campaign finale. The DNC says "“all our players are out in the field this year." I hope that's sincere.

    But if the snub was indeed motivated by pure politics, then yeah that's rather petty.

    I'm just curious, do you have any Republican friends? Do you hang out with anyone who doesn't share your political views? Sometimes we here in the WR lose sight of the fact that world doesn't revolve around politics. This annual softball tradition was sort of a reminder that people are capable of coming together for a good time, regardless of disagreements. If we really can't come together over something like this, then... well maybe we can't come together.

    This just seems like bad politics. Does this seem to play poorly with anyone who isn't a complete psycho?

    This administration and all of its enablers on the Hill have crossed lines never before crossed in the modern era. They have chosen to change the rules of the Washington game as it relates to respect and decorum. They now must accept and take responsibility for the fall out.

    To be fair, I believe that's the angle at play here. Remember the parties are all in on this shit.

    Now the republicans will all talk about how petty and divisive the dems are, while the dems say they refuse to play with nazis at such a hostile time. And were gonna eat that shit up

    8 years of Republican obstructionism. The dems aren't acting anywhere near that badly. Also consider that Obama made conciliatory overtures and Trump just wants to stomp on anyone that voices a dissenting opinion.

    When does this president ever give an inch? He's mainly responsible for this divisive atmosphere asphyxiating our society.

    The Left keeps saying this, but he's governed pretty much from the center. He would have supported a bill to legalize the DREAMers (a move I would have strongly opposed), but the Left didn't want to take that issue of the table. They wanted something to be angry about. This is typical of the Left – they assume America views Trump as "far Right" and "not giving an inch." We happen to think he's a pretty reasonable guy.
