  •  yup. that's it in a nutshell. (14+ / 0-)

    it can't be said enough, so i'll say it here again:

    whatever else happens, whatever the political problems that exist to the left of the GOP, the republicans must be denied access to power at every single level of government: municipal, state and national.  they hate themselves, they hate Americans,  and they hate the planet and cannot be allowed to act on those impulses.

    Vote GOP in 2012; let's prove the Mayans right!

      Would you have voted Whig or Democrat in 1852 or 1856 in order to keep the Southern slavers out of power?

      Go look it up if you don't know your history.

      If you said you would have voted Free Soil / Republican, ping!  You get it.  If not, please explain to me the difference between then and now.

      Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.

        Lincoln and Obama have to deal with large numbers of reputedly Democratic politicians, who were/are not pro-labor and not even centerist for economics.

        Lincoln had Kentucky and Missouri to keep in the Union.

        Obama had a half-dozen Senators, such as Lieberman, who registered/served as Democrats but support economic positions that fall to the Far Right.

        "Disappointment" and "Compromise" are RNC/Rovian memes for 2012.

        In reality, the best you can do is determined by actual vote counts. Democrats sitting out 2010 doomed the 2011/2012 legislative agendas -- not anything Obama did.

        Angry White Males + Crooks + Personality Disorder psychos + KKKwannabes + "Unborn Child" church folk =EQ= The Republicans
