He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home.

        This was really bad. I like AOC but do not support every action she takes because I am an independent human being who does not need to lockstep 100 percent behind someone. For example, as much as I like AOC, representative Rice does appear to be more of a team player in party politics and that stuff is important. I can see why Rice got the energy committee slot.

        But the reports are that Russia did launch a massive cyberattack on the U.S. and it was bad. Trump also has a thing where he likes to be a little puppy to dictators because he wants that level of power and fear for himself. So this veto is bad. The military budget is too high but national security is still an issue that is important and this was an attack on the sovreignty of the United States.

        There is a lot that the United States can improve on but I would rather be a Nathan Hale than a Benedict Arnold.Report

          Well, I’m one of the people who thinks that the Omnibus Bill is bad and it includes a lot of bad things.

          I like that AOC opposes it, even though I agree with her on little.
          I like that Trump vetoed it, even though I agree with him on little.

          I think that there are reasons to oppose the bill above and beyond Putin puppitude.Report

    This does put Purdue and Loefeller in a position of deciding whether to piss off Trump voters or the military.Report

    Seems like good odds that the parties will band together to override the veto. It’s a no brainer for the Dems of course- but it is making things tricky for the GOP. I am playing the worlds smallest violin for leader turtle.Report
