    ...the Democrats in D.C. are simply not good enough. Not viscious enough - why, e.g. did we not impeach George Bush after he lied to take us to war in Iraq, causing over 100k Iraqi's to die and over 4k US soldier, bankrupting the country in the process? WTF was that about? Where were the Dems then? I simply do not know.

    OK, I will offer you and alternative: the founding fathers simply did not foresee that a group of senators or a group of congresspeople would simply NOT have the best interests of the country at heart.

    •  TerryDarc, if the Dems in D.C. are "simply (0+ / 0-)

      not good enough," then we Dems outside D.C. need to replace them with candidates who are "good enough."

      Dems couldn't impeach Bush because they didn't get control of the House until 2006 and there was a Rethug majority in the Senate to stop it.  You know, like all the things that were passed by Dems in 2008, but DIED in the Senate because Rethugs were busy filibustering everything from the House.

      The obvious solution in 2012 is to make certain that Democrats totally control both houses of Congress - meaning 60 votes in the Senate.  That's what the founding fathers didn't foresee, but that's our reality and that's what needs to be done come 2012.

      Best. President. Ever.
