    Regardless of what the Democrats did or did not do, and when they did (or didn't) do it, one underlying fact remains:


    They are addicted to money and power, and their "base" is not Republicans. It isn't the Tea Party. They are just the hornet's nest that has been stirred up and aimed at the media to deflect and distract.

    Their real base is the richest few - the Koch brothers, Rupert Murdoch, ALEC, and all the rest of that vile and vicious crew.

    We forget that at our peril.

    Fighting amongst ourselves only helps THEM. Period.

    More Democrats in the House, more Democrats in the Senate, more Democrats in all positions in all states across the country. That is the only way to slow down the juggernaut at all, and we have to make sure we never stop fighting.

    I will NEVER give the GOP a pass, or say "Yeah, but that's just how they are." No fucking way.

      "I will NEVER give the GOP a pass, or say "Yeah, but that's just how they are." No fucking way."

      And let's not forget, they manufactured this debt ceiling crisis.

      No matter how mad, I get at Democrats, it doesn't compare to the intrasigent Republicans in Congress. To my mind, nothing compares.
