  •  That kind of strategy by the Republicans... (3+ / 0-)

    ...is what has also helped earned them there extremely low approval ratings.

    Unless our goal is to see the Democratic party as hated and despised as the Republicans are, we may want to be careful about copying their strategies.

      of being careful of not copying their strategies, the problem is that the Dems in power are in fact pursuing the same agenda as the R's. They should start being democratic and actually work to implement an agenda and policy that is Democratic. Who cares what strategy they use to implement the same nasty agenda as the Republicans. They can call this a victory for compromise or a grand bargain but it's nothing but a betrayal of the common good. It's not what democracy or a just society looks like, it's what non partisan neo feudalism looks like.

        They are not HAPLESS at this point , they are willing participants , and are not even trying to disgueze it , I am a big fn of Senator Klobuchar from Mn. , her sponsoring the bill was not a coincidence imo , it was meant to reduce the impact of resistance for the dems to make this move , SO EXPECT MORE SELLING OUT NOW FROM THE DEMS

        My reps and obama got an ear full from me , and it will be repeated when they get back from va ca to DO NOTHING AGAIN
