    Democrats need to find a mirror. That it;s better to ease down the slope than dive off the cliff. Either way you end up at the same destination. The powerful are appeased the powerless are shafted.

    There are no sacred cows.

      do need a mirror at times, don't we? While I hear what you're saying, it doesn't necessarily go hand-in-hand with "easing down the slope vs diving off a cliff".

      The ones that tend to need a mirror the most are often the ones calling CT ;)

        I find those that deny that incremental backward steps is better than leaping backwards seem to be in denial about where we are headed. We had a grand opportunity and once again TPTB quashed what everyone, even those indies that chose us, agreed needed to be done. The D's once once again squandered an opportunity to make inroads with the American people. I know the excuses about the intransigent congress and the fact that certain segments hate the Pres. because he is a POC but at some point we have to look around and realize all those that talked tough when it was Bush laid down their arms when it mattered.

        I better shut up now but I do want to say one more thing...

        I have a niece we call "chickie" so consider that a term of endearment.

        Peace
