  •  Thanks, former Senator Feingold, for giving all (9+ / 0-)

    of us some sober reality to deal with.  This is not a game.  It's more than time to step up and re-elect President Barack Obama and MORE DEMOCRATS to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and in state elections nationwide.

    Republicans are playing a game.  It's called DESTROY AMERICA AND WIN!!!!  They've made their agenda very clear.  Throw the Middle Class under a bus, along with President Obama and every Democrat in Congress and in states across the country and then return to the rape and pillage of the land, the air, the sea.  All in the name of greed and corporations.  All to make billionaires trillionaires.

    It's a sick game.  Let's show them they can't win by destroying this country.  It's time to show the righties, the dominionists, the Kochs, the Murdochs, the Ailes what the door looks like as they get thrown out of power.

    OBAMA/BIDEN AND DEMOCRATIC MAJORITIES IN BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS 2012!!!!  It's time WE take our country back to a vibrant, thriving Middle Class, supported by fair taxation of the billionaires in this country!!!!!

    Best. President. Ever.

    •   I agree, kicking and screaming, I agree. (3+ / 0-)

      I react angrily whenever the President gives in to these thugs.  
      I react angrily when he settles for half measures.  
      I get mad and swear we should "Primary his **s".  
      When I sober up from my rage, I realize that he is a "community organizer" at heart.  He really believes you can get everyone together to "buy-in"  to a solution.  
      He is stuck with the "community" we have allowed to take over the Congress.  I bear some responsibility for the situation and my best option is to work harder to change that community.  Abandoning the Presidency would be suicidal.
      I admire Russ and hope that he can someday return to "active" service.  
      I hope to direct my anger more at the deserving thugs in the future and less at our only hope of changing things for the better.

      "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness......But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd."-Pulp fiction

      •  Thanks for this comment, HockeyFan. It means (0+ / 0-)

        a lot to me that you're going to support this man going into 2012.  Anything else is literally suicidal for all of us.

        Best. President. Ever.
