    •  I read anger and disappointment. why do (0+ / 0-)

      you insist on defining it as hate?

      doesn't that just give you an excuse to ignore the reasons the person may be expressing those emotions?

    •  also, I feel quite strongly that when a person (0+ / 0-)

      is attacked personally, rather than having their ideas addressed, it is incumbent on others to step in and not just leave the one attacked to defend themselves against that kind of energy. Turning the exchange into one where the diarist has to defend against the accusation of hating is not appropriate.

    •  That's not hate by the way. (3+ / 0-)

      That is utter and complete disappointment.

      Democrats failed miserably when they could have succeeded admirably.

      Go back further further and read my diaries in which I championed Democrats.

      I'm a Democrat and much of that disappointment is directed at myself for being a chump.

      Can I not feel betrayed by my own party?

      Am I supposed to champion every decision from my party?

      If I did that, I'd be no better than Republicans who dont criticize GWB's decisions.

      I can't be that person.

      •  It really does not seem like you are a democrat . (0+ / 0-)

        You talk about how they let you down .
        You talk as if they are others .
        You have talked stink about Democrats .  

        Democrats failed miserably when they could have succeeded admirably.
        Did you watch the speeches before the vote ?
        Did the tax rate go up on the rich / > $400k ?
        Or did the tax rate as you claim go down on the > $400k ?

        How do you feel that grover's pledge has been broken ?
        How do you feel about the rich being told their tax rates are going up ?
        How do you feel about the republican votes for increased taxes on the rich ?
        How do you feel about the republicans tearing into each other today over their votes ?

        I see none of that in you diary , all I see is you talking stink about Democrats .
        None of the good and all of the bad is a funny way to go about it , this diary and yesterdays made me wonder if you are actually a troll .

          All I can ask of you is not to base your judgement on just one single entry of mine  expressing my frustration.

          To answer your questions though, I'm a Democrat and as one I find it my duty to call out my own party when I think they've done wrong.

          If you review my entries you may find all too many criticisms and outbursts regarding Republicans and their party.

          I lay blame as equally as I can.  

          If I only criticized one party I wouldn't be a Democrat.
