    •  heh but here's the thing... (0+ / 0-)

      those that position themselves in the middle of the two parties are positioned rightward by House Rs.

      If you really want to be in the middle, you have to agree with Dems, the true centrists, which makes you a partisan.

      Call it Dino's dilemma.

      •  Nice try, Dem from Ct. (0+ / 0-)

        No dilemma.

        I have never cared about being in the middle.  I would much rather be right them , ummm, right.

        Or left.
        Or center.

        Makes it hard to stick with any party.

        However, when parties start going for top and bottom instead of right and left, give me a call.

        PS -- Dems in the center. Thanks.  I needed a good chuckle.

          "the president needs to do x and y and z."

          "um, but he's called for all of that. So you agree with him, then?"

          "Stop calling me a Democrat! I ]'m non partisan!"

          You can run from it but it remains true.

            can enjoy anything somebody does right.

            When Democrats are right, you can applaud them.
            When Republicans are right, you can applaud them.
            When disciples of The Divine Asparagus take over Congress and get the country on a healthy footing, you can applaud them.
