  •  madhause - I have been a Democrat since (0+ / 0-)

    I was eight years old and handing our flyers for my uncle who was running for state legislature in the Democratic primary where the Dem primary winner was a lock. My Dad was a blue collar Depression era high school dropout, my Mom worked at the local Sears store in the back office. I grew up in a fourth floor walk up. My family has always been solid Democrat and so have I. I am much more of a JFK Democrat than a Teddy Kennedy Democrat, but being a Democrat here is essentially a given. I am very liberal on social issues, and more free market on economic issues. I live in a very Democratic area where essentially all the public office holders are Dems. I tend to view politics more from the perspective of a political scientist than an advocate.

    I feel badly about the Bain dialogue I could have done a much better job of helping people put information into a much more accurate context.  There was so much misinformation that I would just start writing and should have given it much more thought. But that is water under the bridge. My guess is that no major political party will run an investor, or big company CEO, for national office or even most state wide offices for the foreseeable future.

    Mostly, I do have fun here and I learn things and there is a growing group of people who seem to appreciate my contribution.

    •  Yes, you've given your history before (0+ / 0-)

      And I believe you when you talked about that.  I even believe that you feel badly how the Bain stuff went, and I know what it's like when trying to correct amateur misunderstandings but fail to do so because they're in such a different place than you.

      Fact remains, you duck a lot of direct questions.  On a politics site.  About your politics.

      You didn't say who you voted for.  You said who people voted for where you lived.  More ducking.  Do you even realize how much you do this, or do you think you're being so clever trying to sneak this past me?  

      I would appreciate your contributions, given that you do have a background few people here have, if I didn't have the overwhelming sense you are hiding something and are here to subvert the discussion.
