  •  This is one of the few Democratic sites (0+ / 0-)

    where one is likely to see criticism of Administration policies at all.   That's pretty devastating.

    •  disagree. This is one of the most pro-Obama sites (6+ / 0-)

      it's called Orange State, for example. Other sites that aren't as friendly to the President are considered hate sites by many here, like firedoglake. If more people knew about Voices on the Square I'm sure that would also be vilified. HuffPo is more critical of the President than dKos by a longshot, and is therefore called a tabloid.

      But you might be right, since I don't know all the Democratic sites. Maybe the ones I know of are more critical and maybe there are a lot that get behind the Administration all the time. I don't, for example, go to the Motley Moose. I hear Deaniac has a site, whatever that might be. Maybe I live a sheltered life and don't see all the cheerleading.

      haven't been reading Firedoglake.

        Any site to the left of Daily Kos isn't 'Democratic', it's 'those insane fringers who probably voted Green in 2000, kill them all!' (This is not a new development... dKos and a LOT of the left have seen anyone further left of them as more of a threat than the Republicans are more or less since they were founded. Unfortunately, both sides in American politics subscribe to the same maxim: 'I am the center. Anyone to my right is dangerous and should be handled carefully. Anyone to my left is insane and should be disregarded.')

        So by that definition, this is indeed one of the few 'Democratic' sites where one is likely to see criticism of the Administration at all.

        Firedoglakes's "About us" identifies the site as an entity of, or an entity supporting, the Democratic Party.  In fact it's probably no coincidence that FDL is regularly slammed on this site for its frequently anti-Democratic commentary.
