    My opinion of the moment on the difference between democrats and republicans:

    Republicans are openly going to sell everyone down the river to some insane mix of objectivism and distorted vision of capitalism.

    Democrats are going to try to sell everyone down the river more selectively – by making carve-outs and backdoor deals with specific business sectors and hoping no one notices (e.g. giving the pharmaceutical industry a hand job in the healthcare reform bill).

      That kind of deal making was only necessary because they couldn’t pass the bill without the votes such deal making got them.  Republicans did everything they could to ruin the deal and damaged it a great deal.  Moderate Democrats did the same.  Obama’s original bill, the one he tried so hard to pass, was everything he claimed it would be. 

      Obama’s not perfects, and the Democrats aren’t perfect, but in the big picture, who fights for the American people (the middle and lower class)?

        That kind of deal was necessary because both parties have long abandoned any notion of making good policy and are looking for industry buy-in.

        It is not possible to reform or regulate an industry if you are looking to cut deals to get said industry on board with your legislation.  You might as well save us all the farce.

    There is only one party, we ain’t in it.

  5.  OMG the drama.  People didn’t support govt workers striking. Get over it. Unions please consider befriending other political agendas.  Because your save our jobs and ship their jobs overseas isn’t working.  And no it’s not OK to strike over a $5 dollar co-pay increase.  A bit of an unfair rant  -just saying.

    Republicans are hurtling toward Armageddon in a NASCAR.
    Democrats are puttering toward Armageddon in a Prius.

    Democrats don’t matter anymore. They serve only as the “second party” so the Republicans (1) can claim we live in a two party system and (2) have someone to blame when Republican policies cause disasters. Democrats are a joke or, more properly speaking, the joke is “on them”.
