    they all need to be AS outraged or MORE that the 59 Democratic caucus is not willing to go to the fucking floor and fight a filibuster through a goddamn recess!!

    thank god some of them are but they are far too few.

    i hold every single senator in the democratic caucus personally responsible of dadt is not ended without a fight to the day the newly elected senators take over.  every single goddamn one of them.  

    and anyone who gives them a pass while comparing President Obama to a nazi appeaser, markos i'm looking at you, is full of shit.

    if President Obama is chamberlain then every single senator in the democratic caucus is chamberlain too if they don't fight for ending dadt to the very end.

        i briefly mentioned Obama because i'm contrasting the amount of pressure being placed on him to the amount of pressure being placed on the people who are actually responsible for ending dadt in the senate.  and the senate seems to be sneaking by without being called out by hiding behind the president.  at least to me.  and since we are talking about having a tiny window left to have dadt end until, as you said in your comment, boner takes over in the house, i want to put pressure on the senate.

        what's with the 'i wish you hadn't either' comment?  am i not pure enough of a democrat for you to have on your side?  you just want the democrats who totally agree with everything you say and you don't need anyone else?  i don't know what issues you care about, aside from ending dadt obviously, but i take whoever i can get to support what i want on issues.  

        wow.  talk about getting a cold shoulder.

        •  lol, I thought the same thing. (0+ / 0-)

          I went back and read your comment 3 more times looking for whatever I obviously missed.  I suddenly realized that I didn't miss anything and that Clarknt67 is just out-there.  I wonder if he didn't misread you but don't know how he could have, either.
