  •  I'm not defending Crazy Paul (0+ / 0-)

    any more than you're defending Shady Romney, but is is intriguing how our choice of shit sandwich reflects the reality and depth of the divide in the Democratic Party.

    Racism, in this day and age, is easily isolated. Despite the attempts of the entire Republican Party to stoke a racist backlash, the influence of racism shrinks with each generation.

    However, the surest way to engender racists is to cut the knees off of the economy, which Romney and his Rove lead neoliberal gang are set to do as soon as they return to power.

    As far as crisis resolution, I see nothing that indicates that Romney is any more willing or able to handle crisis than George Bush: using them for political gain and personal profit at the expense of both the taxpayer and the citizen.

    •  this doesn't have anything to do (0+ / 0-)

      with the democratic party;

      Romney is not "neoliberal;"

      Romney is also significantly more accomplished than Dubya ever was -- this seems to be part of the objection;

      racism may or may not be easily isolated, but it isn't when something like Paul's position's don't make him complete persona non grata.  A few years ago, wasn't it worth France reelecting the corrupt Jacques Chirac when Jean-Marie Le Pen unexpectedly made the runoff?
