    I want the culture of kicking the bully in the balls every time he starts to get rowdy.

    Obama is "a good man" to many democrats like Bush was "a good man" to republicans.

    •  that isn't the choice we were given (0+ / 0-)

      Pretending that it was is delusional.  The Teabaggers didn't care if the country went into default.  They didn't care if millions of Americans were immediately harmed by their actions.  They didn't care about the credit rating of t-bills.  In fact, they likely didn't even understand how fragile or important some of those things are.  Once you get beyond TAXES BAD DARK PEOPLE BAD WHITE PEOPLE GOOD WAR GOOD mentality with Teabaggers, there isn't a lot of intellectual heft left.

      Again, are we going to become the Teabaggers just to fight fire with fire?  The public doesn't want more of that, I assure you.  No matter how badly Obama came out of the polls in this, the Teabagers are ten times less popular and ten times more hated.

      Just in case you forgot today: REPUBLICANS VOTED TO END MEDICARE. AND THEY'LL DO IT AGAIN.
