    You'd think as Democrats that we would understand shades of gray and weighing issues on balance.  This was a very well constructed diary and argument that you don't have to fully agree with in order to see points of merit.

      If you say even dare to say shades of gray around here you are a sellout. Didn't you get the memo?

      but I got enough "up is down" during eight years of Bush.

      Have you even read your own sig?

        understanding of nuance and shades of gray about process to achieve goals while not budging on the goals themselves.  The current tax cut for the rich hysteria would probably not make his top 20 of today's key issues.

    •  some issues are black and white; right and wrong. (0+ / 0-)

      no more compromises with these evil-doers, and if our DC Democrats dont' get the message, then we'll need to replace them.

      •  Good luck with that (0+ / 0-)

        This sort of thing goes back to the continental congress...politics is politics.
