    We need more Dems. like Alan Grayson and Ed Shultz. They have both principles and guts. Instead, we have for the most part a cadre of spineless Corp. owned flunkies that run hard to left to get elected and then promptly forget who elected them and do the bidding of the Corp. right. It's infuriating and many of us are sick of it. I've been voting , contributing and working for Democrats for almost 40 yrs. and it's just gotten worse. I'd hoped Obama would be different, at least he sounded different, like he got it. But ,once in office he's turned his back on us and he's surrounded himself with the same old crowd of Corp. sell outs. What's really pissing me and many other progressives off though is Obama goes on with the same speeches as if he's still running and now his speeches are totally out of synch with his actions and his parties actions in Congress. Amazingly the Dems. still act as if the Gopers are calling all the shots! Talk about learned hopelessness the Dems. are the poster children for this condition. They just don't seem to get that they have the majority. Maybe, it's because they really don't. The Right has had a project these last 40 yrs. to take over both parties and they've pretty much done it. The Gopers are so far right now it's scary but with the blue dog part of the Dinocrats they still have a working majority.
