    The reason why Obama & the Dems do what they do...

    is because the Democrats cannot hold the House under a Democratic President for more than 2 years, and haven't done so in 32 years.

    Around sometime between Reagan's election and Gingrich's Revolution, the Democratic Party stopped being the Democratic Party of FDR-LBJ.

    Because,  face it - that old Democratic Party we glorify, that held the House for a good 60 years,  was once was the racist Southern Dixiecrat Democratic Party that left to join the GOP per the Southern Strategy.

    And that is why the GOP now holds the House with ease, and our Democratic Party is now like the former pro liberal/minority rights GOP that couldn't hold the House for 60 years.

    The establishment DLC knows this, and that is why they habe a rightward bent. Too many liberals do not realize this & still believe we are the party of FDR-LBJ when we are not - that party is long gone and that former base is now on the other side of the aisle.
