    Obama's behavior for the past 5 year, always believing he will

    "end up with moderate, human opposition."
    Well it hasn't worked and it's time to understand why. They have demonized Obama and really all Liberals to the point that we are not considered honorable opponents. We're sub-human to them. We've tried not sinking to their level and being the good guys, but that has only encouraged them to think we're weak and made them behave even worse. So, now something has to change. To paraphrase an old coach of mine:
    Of course I'm going to sink to their level. How else am I going put my foot up their asses?

    Just doing my part to piss off right wing nuts, one smart ass comment at a time.

    •  Them. Them means.......what, exactly? (0+ / 0-)

      You may notice upon review of my comments that I do not recommend negotiating with the true terrorists. They need to be removed by appropriate and permanent methods. This is part of tactical planning.

      The Republican party and the conservative umbrella are no more 100% terrorists than the Democratic party is 100%.......well, anything. One long-range goal is to identify the rational players on the other side and work with them to bypass, sidestep, and eliminate their nonrational leaders. I'm far less interested in being "the good guys" and far more interested in furthering progressive principles and the good of the country. If that means a "dirty" fight, okay. Just don't violate your principles. This is part of strategic planning.

      If you truly think that all Republicans and conservatives are completely nonrational players with no hope ever for negotiation, then you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

      Less "WAAAAH!", more progress.
