  •  Since I think he basically outmanuevered (0+ / 0-)

    And manipulated progressives, Blue Dogs, and Republicans to bring about what he wanted, that doesn't say much for those groups.

      In my opinion.  Pitts, a core member of The Family, seems to me to have been the driving force here, and Stupak was manuvering with the help of Pitts and some of the Blue Dogs.  What Stupak did is stupefyingly contrary to the interests of the Democratic Party, as I tried to point out.  

      Bart didn't do this all by himself.  He had lots of help, and much of it was from across the aisle. And from the Catholic Bishops, whi actually do support health care, as long as they get their way on abortion.  This means at least some of the impetus was to damage the Dems generally, not just Obama, and most was to promote the cause of controlling women's bodies.

      Your new Democratic Party: Billions for the bankster boys and not one dime for abortions. Even if it's your dime.
