    Who allows them free reign without discipline or consequence for bad behavior?

    Who remains quiet in the face of batshit crazy talk and actions from the disloyal opposition?

    Who cowers at the thought of accountability?  

    Who is not engaging the media establishment?

    Who is seen hobnobbing with corporate interests and taking their money instead of doing the PEOPLE'S work? (The bill that passed the congress this past week that gave mortgage companies and banks a free pass to continue screwing homeowners and a "get out of jail free" card is an example of just that. --It should have never reached the President's desk)

    You reap what you sow.  If Democrats lose big, it's their own damn fault.

    •  Because we are not the Republican Party (0+ / 0-)

      We aren't going to threaten or diminish our own (or shouldn't).  When its primary time is when they answer to the voters.  The last thing we need to do is mirror the behavior of the Teapublicans. Liberals, fighting the conservative way since 1776...

      •  The whole purpose of a party... (0+ / 0-)

        is to have a set of shared values.  The Party has to enforce it's values or it is worthless.

        Blue dogs should have not been allowed to be in this party because they are not loyal, and they betray democratic values.  Enabling them is harmful both to the party and our country.

        All the "hippie-punching" that is going on is what SHOULD be happening to Blue-dogs who don't toe the line.  The party has lost its moral compass and has the audacity to think it can abuse its base.
