  •  That's a VERY good question! (0+ / 0-)
    Can we destroy the GOP first and then fight over the spoils?i simply don't get the strategy here.
    That would be very nice and it maybe could even happen if our party leaders weren't spineless wimps (or corporate tools) who seem bound and determined to let the GOP off the hook and give them what they want, despite the fact we just kicked their fascist butts.
    Why aren't the Repubs the ones who are doomed, who should be shamed, etc? They get a free pass from the firebag left and are thus rewarded by even more for their intransigence and stupidity.

    I'm on both SSDI snd Medicare so I have skin in this.  I expect the Repugs to try to slash my benefits and realize there's no point in trying to shame them out of it.  But I expected the Dems to protect me from this bullshit.  I didn't vote for Obama and contribute money to OFA to be thrown under the bus as part of an ill-advised "grand bargain" to solve a manufactured, phony crisis.  If they do so in violation of promises they made to me, I can't see how they're that much better than the GOP.
