    When the Republicans were running things, it was horrible enough. You could at least think that they were doing it for partisan reasons.

    This is simply beyond comprehension.

      but I think they are trying to choose their battles rather than just giving in on everything.  You have to consider the fact that the MSM defines every issue in this country.  If the MSM decides to say that the Dems have become dangerous reactionaries, then that is what the majority of Americans will believe.  The facts are simply beside the point.  So maybe they are just trying to move incrementally so as to bring the MSM along.

      That said, Bushista showed us that the MSM gets confused when a party sticks together and refuses to attack one another on an issue.  They feel they have to treat that party's stance as legitimate as long as they can't find some members of the party to shake their heads and say their leaders have lost it.  If our guys would stick together, anything they do would be considered legit.

        to understand the fact that there are not more than a handful of people in Congress from either party who are fighting for the rights of the average citizen.

        The vast majority of our elected representatives are not on our side.  They dance with the one that brought them, and large corporations have been buying their tickets to the ball for years.
