    Many comments have immediately disappeared that raised some good points, you notice how warm and fuzzy the remaining comments are.

    The deleter is another Walker in Dem clothing!

        that since you are a trusted user, you (and I) can still see all the comments.

        But comments that have been hide-rated are not visible to non-trusted users, nor are replies.  So it looks to some people like lots of comments have disappeared.

          fails the Duck Test.

          -- "Walks like a duck, swims like a duck, quacks like a duck...."

          -- "Whines like a shill, pisses on Dems like a shill, preaches betrayal like a shill...."

          That fellow Tim do need to learn how to play defense. Not wasting his time on earth trying to push PC Perfection.

                that Obama has even supported since he's been in office have only been Republican policies

                who was that masked man who claimed

                "I am completely opposed to the mandatory requirements on individuals for health insurance that my opponents Clinton and Edwards are pushing!!"
                "The public option will help cut rising health insurance premiums! We'll pass it, don't worry!".
                "We must re-regulate financial institutions! and Derivative trading!"
                "Don't ask/don't tell will be repealed under President Obama"
                "And Guantanmo Bay will be closed!"
                Not to mention the IRAQ war, which is still going on -- despite Obama's own version of "Mission Accomplished."

                I really can't believe anyone active is not aware of these things. Off the top of my head:

                - Underfunded stimulus chock full of tax breaks, rather than job creators
                - A health care bill a Republican would love if they were rational -- one, Romney, even did better than Obama in his state

                - Despite the analysis he's long cited and promoted on the campaign trail, there is no public option/Medicare but there is a mandatory coverage w/ NO real regulation of health provider costs -- so like he said in Iowa in Jan.2007 - "We're going to fine poor people for using the emergency room under their plans"

                - Expanding off shore oil drilling, 1 month before the BP oil disaster, too (& refusing to change any aspect of it after the disaster)
                - Ignoring the cozy rel’p between regulators & oil, so that BP type disasters is inevitable
                - Ending the Bush tax breaks for billionaires by replacing it with the Obama tax breaks for billionaires

                - Ignoring "DADT" until the courts were on the verge of  throwing it out (I don't remember him saying "I'll end DADT... but only at the point the policy would be forced to change anyway.")
                - financial "reform" that isn't
                - The justice dept. says no one is to blame for ruining the world’s economy in the interest of greed
                - taking an ax to his own budget before even negotiating w/ the opposition -- & cutting regulators & investigators heavily
                - Actually saying "The problem is spending" about the deficit, rather than his own tax breaks for the wealthy (hey, just like Scott Walker!) -- that is, completely capitulating tot he Republican world view
                - Cutting pay & positions for gov't workers in order to deal w/ a deficit created by tax cuts to the wealthy
                - Firing Shirley Sherrod at the behest of reichwing interests
                - Lowest level of pardons by any modern president
                - Higher rates of incarceration than Bush for undocumented people, etc.
                - Having the most conservative court ever, AFTER 2 Supreme Court appointments by Obama
                - Obama even out-Reagened Reagen on guns by overturning Reagan's ban on having guns in national parks -- & on an issue done w/ no fanfare, no apparent even request from anyone to change the rule!

                - Continuing 2 wars
                - ramping up Afghan war
                - Keeping GITMO & military trials operating
                - No accounting for torture -- I'd be surprised if any "interrogation tactics" have even CHANGED under Obama's intelligence state

                - (yawn, etc.etc.etc.)

                The only thing we have to fear are gutless Dems like Obama & the Congressional leaders who refuse to live up to their own campaign pledges, and cram Republican policies down our throats.

                The Dems lose, and they must bow to the will of the American people and cave in to Republican policies.

                The Dems win, and Dems have to propose Republican policies out of fear that the Republicans will get in power and push Republican policies.

                wow, what a choice!

                & daily Daily Kos pleas to pleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease donate more money to Democrats so they can cave into Republicans in style!

                & people here just heap abuse on anyone pointing out that supporting Obama & the Democrats only produces Republican policies, even when you “win”.

                Do I really have to go on?

        My missing comments did not get hide ratings or they would appear in my home page. A DKOS elite must have deleted mine with the others Walker style!
