  •  More complaining. That won't get better Dems (0+ / 0-)

    nominated and elected, which is the point, isn't it? Or is just being frustrated and angst-ridden the goal?

    I see what you did there.

    •  No. It seems people still have delusions about (16+ / 0-)

      where we are. It's not complaining, it's any analysis of the political hole our "leadership" is digging us. It's enlightening the people who imagine Dem Leadership has a fucking clue.

      If you want Better Dems elected, you need to know what a Better Dem would be.

      That would be one who doesn't undermine Social Security (which the electorate overwhelmingly demands); one who pushes a Federal Job Stimulus (which the electorate overwhelmingly demands.)

      If Republicans said every 3rd person named "Smith" should hang, we'd bargain them to every 7th. Then we'll see apologia written praising this most pragmatic compromise. There's our losing formula.

    •  How can you (8+ / 0-)

      get better Dems elected if you don't stand up and call this lot of Third Way'ers what they are? As it stands better Dems are in short supply and those that manage to get elected have been marginalized and have no power.  The New Democrat's the Third Way'ers who own and run the party machine aren't about to throw support or money or allow us to nominate anyone that is a better Dem.

      Democratic candidates who won't do the two legs better dance are simply window dressing for the illusion of re[presentational democracy . At this point all the voters get to do is ratify the pols the owners of the place present as our 'choice'. It's not even binary, we have no choice just the one party with theocratic  hardliners on one end and vicious ideologues, neocon/neoliberals  passed off as moderates on the other end.    

      More complaining as you call any resistance, dissent  or criticism of this administration and our non partisan broken government is the only way open to addressing our righteous grievances. I'll be damned if I'm going STFU while these fuckers implement this global NWO they call the 'way forward'. Fear of teh evil other, the boogie-men and apocalyptic cliffs they cook up and cowardly acceptance of this political farce only empowers the forces that are not Democratic. Victories for compromise with who and for what end?


      •  Who are all these people calling you names (0+ / 0-)

        and telling you to STFU, shah? You constantly bring that up but I must be missing every single one of the 1,000 comments a day you are getting telling you to be quiet!

        Oh, and you don't need to worry about changing current dems, just find better ones and have them win primaries and then win the GE's an acceptable % of the time.

        I see what you did there.
