  •  GOP = better politicians (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Truth is that the GOP seems to be better politicians than the Democrats. They're smarter in using the rules to their advantage, have less or no scruples and march in lockstep giving a more unified front. They're just very awfull at govering.

    The Democrats are exactly the opposite... Like Will Rogers said "I belong to no organized party, I'm a Democrat". They have too much scruples, don't dare usung the rules to the fullest and are never forming a unified front. Their policies however are miles beter than the GOP's but alas due to hte GOP's tactics they are often blocked.

    •  I'm not sure I'd call them better politicians (0+ / 0-)

      I would go with devious, scheming, power-hungry liars.

      •  That too (0+ / 0-)

        but in the end, they still get most what they want, which may make them cynical, crooked but also effective politicians. I wish our pols had a little more backbone... the Democrats should take a look at how the GOP works and use/adapt the positive things while avoiding their negatives. If they do that and act united for once, they might accompish something.
