Joe Manchin is a centrist Democrat in conservative West Virginia. He has consistently made clear he opposes an end to the filibuster. He also prefers bipartisanship over ramming legislation down the throats of a significantly large number of people. His stance, one of reason and moderation, is enraging the unreasonable and extreme. These are the talking heads of the left, who are just as outrageous as those on the right.
Check out these screaming headlines:
Washington Post - "How Joe Manchin's awful new stance could blow up in his face"
Signorile Report - "Are we going to let Joe Manchin sink democracy?"
Raw Story - "Steve Bannon pushes ‘major effort’ to ‘bring Joe Manchin into the Republican party’"
Newsweek - MSNBC host Mehdi Hhasan questions Joe Manchin's intelligence - 'just not very bright'"
These are neither news stories nor editorials. They are rank partisan pieces aimed at those within their bubble.
