Response to #Biden skipping the California Dems is scathing.

Biden's "refusal to show up only reinforces the idea that he’s an elitist and he is more interested in collecting big checks in CA than being in genuine touch with grassroots activists."…
#Buttigieg and #Warren took Biden on.
Buttigieg said that "the riskiest thing we could do is try to play it safe.... In these times, Democrats can no more promise to take us back to the 2000s or 1990s than conservatives can take us back to the 1950s.”…
#Warren: “Some Democrats in Washington believe the only changes we can get are tweaks & nudges.If they dream at all, they dream small.Some say if we’d all just calm down, Republicans will come to their senses. Our country is in a time of crisis. The time for small ideas is over.”
“I think it’s a tremendous strategic mistake,” said Assemblyman David Chiu, who has endorsed Sen. #KamalaHarris. “There’s been a buzz among delegates of why Vice President #Biden hasn’t joined us.”…
Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks, who was a key strategist in the Obama-Biden campaigns in 2008 & 2013, said Biden made a mistake in not showing up. “These delegates are representative of Democrats in their communities. So many candidates are here. It was important for him to show up.”
California is the most diverse and most populous state. It's difficult to comprehend why #Biden would think it was okay not to show up. Thus far Biden has made it a point to stick to small venues of mostly white people.
This is a real error in both strategy and judgment.
#Biden's rollout in majority black #Philly was small and also mostly white suburbanites. It was a gorgeous Saturday & the whole area had been closed to traffic in anticipation of a huge crowd. And Biden's biggest applause line wasn't about him, but "Obama was a great president."
Thus far all we know about #Biden is what he's against: #M4A, #GND (while also claiming no one has been more for the environment than he has been, seeming to forget Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize). He says the GOP will "have a epiphany" once he's in office, which is delusional.
If you think it's okay to thumb your nose at 40M Americans, maybe this is not the race for you.…
