    And since we haven't gotten any of that from the current crew, we're one more thing: a reform blog. The battle for the party is not an ideological battle. It's one between establishment and anti-establishment factions. And as I've said a million times, the status quo is untenable.
    That bold facing is yours, it's not in the original document.

    Do you really think it's conductive to electoral victory to promote a neo-liberal austerity program and ignore the 90% of voters who oppose that?

    If so I invite you to look at Europe and the UK.

    Electoral victory?  That's a joke.  Otherwise you'd support programs that are actually, you know, popular and stop enabling Republicans by adopting their policies.

    In the mean time suck it up and stop building strawmen of your discontent with people who don't clap hard enough for Tinkerbell.

      I ADMIT THAT FULLHEARTEDLY & NEVER CLAIMED ANY DIFFERENT! And basically, either suck up the fact that DK is becoming almost as bad as RedState and shut up and follow the frustrati orders or be taken out? Is that what you are admitting to me?

        Who's being naive Kay?

        You're the one claiming, now, that dK is no better than RedState.

        Forgive me if I disagree.

        And taking you out?  Are you implying I'm threatening you by responding to your public opinions?

        You type what you want, but be prepared for criticism as well as adulation.

        Otherwise I suggest a gentler hobby, like crochet.

        all they do no matter what or be taken out?

        there are two sides to the coin tricia; yours is but one.

        and i think what ek meant is that the highlighting in the quoted version distracts from the sentences that follow it, and the sentences that follow it are important distinctions having to do with our Democratic electeds.

          Is Obama perfect?? NO! I will never say that he is; however insisting that he is the ONLY problem in DC is nothing more than prettying up the pig that the GOP is trying to sell. Personally, I think it is pretty GD bad that on any given day, on a blog that is supposed to be for DEMOCRATS reads like something off of Faux News and is ALL about how evil and horrible our President is!

          •  i'm not the one doing the pegging, i'm just... (9+ / 0-)

            repeating your words. for instance, right here you say:

            Is Obama perfect?? NO! I will never say that he is; however insisting that he is the ONLY problem in DC is nothing more than prettying up the pig that the GOP is trying to sell.
            please show me where myself, ek, or any of the critics i support here at DKos are claiming that he is the only problem in DC.

            now, honestly, who's doing the pegging here. same goes with the above comments.

            and the critics i support here write critiques on some of the policies supported, backed, and sometimes put forth by the Obama administration. they don't get into personal smear, but critiquing how Obama leads on a matter of policy is not personal - it has to do with how he acts in official capacity. and those policies affect a lot of folks personally, so yeah, we've every right to critique his administration. even moreso for those of us who voted for him.

            insisting that no one criticize like priceman, bob swern, Cassiodorus, the ACM folks, david mizner, joanneleon, joe shikspack, et al do, is suggesting that what would be preferable was a place where varying leftie opinions were not allowed, which is actually authoritarian like RedState, and not the other way around.

            i would suggest that the reason some folks are possibly more upset about the criticism now may have something more to do with my sig line, and not the actual criticism.
