    Are you going to deny that these are the kind of pricks they keep telling us we need to reach consensus with? Shite it is, and you need to deal with reality because the shite is on us and it stinks. At this point I put it squarely on the shoulders of those that participate and make this farce possible. Unfortunately some of those are the leaders of our party and as the picture in this diary shows they are being laughed at.

      anonymous people on the intertoobz are incapable of hitting a nerve in me with knee-jerk comments.

      But ok, wallow away.  And then run for office because you would be great.

        hobby horse against Obama?
        Talk about knee-jerk comments.

        Look bubba, I have been a canvassing captain for President Obama in my crimson red district in 2008 and 2012. In 2008 we carried my district for the President by a few votes, a district that had not gone for a Democrat since Jimmy Carter. In 2012 we couldn't quite do it.

        I am anonymous to you as you are to me, but not to others in this site and definitely not to OFA. I am not a sycophant and will speak my mind and truth to power where appropriate. I am not a blind follower nor ever will.

        What happened today in the Senate can be squarely put on the shoulders of one Harry Reid and all his enablers, including me, mind you.

        So judging by your reaction, yes, a nerve was struck. Good. Apparently you are incapable of responding with a reasoned argument of why I am wrong, you only have veiled, or not so veiled, insults and demeaning comments to offer. Sure, next you will tell me I am a worthless fuck, suit yourself.
