  •  Lots of Dems will be leaving (10+ / 0-)

    I think we will be seeing lots of Democrats leaving in the days to come.  A lot of Democrats have already left the party; I was a member of the Democratic party and left after the Clinton administration - and Clinton was a LOT MORE liberal than Obama.

    Speaking for myself, I see no reason why I should vote for someone who calls themself "Democrat" yet continues the policies of his republican predecessor, and in too many cases has expanded those policies.

    If we are going to vote FOR death by presidential fiat, ignoring the war crimes of the Bush administration and fraud on Wall St., warrentless wiretaps and email searches, and conservative fiscal policies, there is really no reason to have a Democratic candidate.

    •  There are war crimes occurring (0+ / 0-)

      under this administration, as well.  We didn't get a new deal or a better deal, just the same raw deal with a reshuffled deck.

      The wisdom of my forebears ... Two wise people will never agree. Man begins in dust and ends in dust — meanwhile it's good to drink some vodka. A man studies until he's seventy and dies a fool.

      •  "ookig forward" on the previous administration's (0+ / 0-)

        war crimes is a war crime in itself.  Cold fact.
