  •  the Republicans have thrown up barriers (0+ / 0-)

    since President Obama was elected.  They have practiced the worse kinds of politics.  These polls show that Americans have been paying attention enough to know how unlikable they are but still may reward them cutting off their noses to spite their faces.

    When Americans complain about the system being broken they surely need to include themselves.  They say they hate the negativity and games playing but if they put the party of no back in the majority it proves they aren't telling the truth.

    The whole thing is discouraging in a way beyond political ideology - that terrible public behavior is simply ignored and rewarded even as many of the same people mouth talk of "values."  What about the value of actually putting America first rather than party and power?  

    •  what did you all expect them to do? (0+ / 0-)

      lie down and surrender to despair?  that is what Democrats do, Republicans hold their noses and go out and vote the party line.

      You folks are playing on different playing fields and by different rules.

      •  indeed, the Repugs are an OPPOSITION PARTY (3+ / 0-)

        Stopping the other party from doing things, is what an OPPOSITION PARTY is supposed to do.

        The Dems might have kept that in mind back when THEY were the opposition party---and rolled over and capitulated to Dubya on virtually everything.

        I find it hysterically funny that so many DKos-ers fall victim to the same "bipartisanship" bullshit that Obama has. "The Repugs are blocking everything we do  boo hoo hoo! Why can't they work with us boo hoo hoo !"

        What the fuck did you EXPECT them to do? WE don't support any of THEIR program, so why in hell would you seriously think THEY would support any of OURS?

        You think they should support us "for the good of the country"? Just how goddamn naive ARE we?
