I don't know about anyone else, but I saw this in 2009 leading up to the debacle of losing the House in 2010, which has rendered everything President Obama has tried to accomplish in his last 3 years pretty much a series of non-starters. This blog turned into a non-stop rant against DEMOCRATS going into that mid-term election. They were either sell-outs to big business or sell-outs for the public option or sell-outs for keeping Gitmo open or sell-outs for fill in the blank.
They were NO BETTER THAN REPUBLICANS and anyone who tried to shout that meme down got jeered at and called a cheerleader and WE LOST THE FUCKING HOUSE. Now, I don't mean to infer that this blog has absolute power in election success or failure, but I think enough Democrats come to this site to get fired up over all sorts of political issues and that does have an effect in the real world. Disillusion of Democrats on this blog is certainly a powerful incentive for those who would have us LOSE ELECTIONS.
Now I for one, refuse to get suckered into the same trap again and I'm hoping there are more of us than there are of them. I hope thousands of us - those who are here to encourage more, better Democrats to run against the blood-suckers known as Republicans - who should be the ONES WE BLAME for doing everything in their power to destroy the middle class, return to slavery if at all possible and make sure that our duly elected president does NOTHING in his office but stand his ground when they shut our government down to deny affordable healthcare to the masses.
Blaming DEMOCRATS for cutting Social Security is a REPUBLICAN meme. REPUBLICANS are demanding cuts to Social Security and Medicare and Democrats are our only hope of stopping THEM. They tried to blame Obama and DEMOCRATS for shutting down the government and taking us to the brink of defaulting on the debt ceiling and now it's the Obama administration demanding CPI, when ONE MAN in his administration mentioned that as a POSSIBILITY on a talk show. That has never been introduced in any actual BUDGET from the White House, but there are folks on this blog who say otherwise daily. Don't get suckered AGAIN. See more below the fold.
I don't buy for one minute that REAL Lefties need to get rid of Democrats who aren't pure enough or haven't accomplished enough or didn't get that magical public option that was a non-starter with the REPUBLICAN VOTES that were needed to pass ANYTHING close to ObamaCare. Denying that is denying reality and I, for one, ain't going there AGAIN.
Those who insist it's the DEMOCRATS who are demanding cuts to my Social Security better F'ng PROVE IT. Those demands have always come from F'ng blood sucking REPUBLICANS who are, once again, holding that hostage over the next budget negotiations. I, for one, am in favor of demanding our Democratic reps stand tall, as they did for ObamaCare, and refuse IN NEGOTIATIONS, to allow REPUBLICANS to cut Social Security. Period. But accusing DEMOCRATS of actually being the authors of CPI and being responsible for cutting SS is just projection with an agenda of having support for Dems in the upcoming mid-terms evaporate. They want Democratic voters to either stay home or stop sending money or stop volunteering for their reelection, which is OBVIOUSLY doing the work of REPUBLICANS.
I, personally, thank Heaven every day that Barack Obama has stopped the blood sucking REPUBLICANS from taking the country back to the Antebellum South. I thank Heaven every day that a DEMOCRAT is in the White House and DEMOCRATS are the majority in the Senate and must TAKE BACK THE HOUSE in 2014 so we can stop the blood sucking REPUBLICANS from succeeding in another Great Depression that slipped through their blood covered fingers when Old Man McCain lost that election.
Folks, again I say, I hope there are more of US here than there are of those here who want to destroy any momentum for Democrats going into this next, crucial election. We need to be fired up and ready to go, because President Obama is not on the ticket and we need to lead OURSELVES and our family and our friends to TURN OUT FOR DEMOCRATS in this next election or those F'ng blood suckers will keep the House and shut down our government, take us over a fiscal cliff and probably bring impeachment proceedings on some trumped up Benghazi nonsense for the duration of Obama's term in office, screaming that he's a lame duck all the while.
VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS in 2014 and we'll see improved roads and bridges and ports, real climate change initiatives in action, funding for Wall Street watchdogs, gun control laws reinstated, no trumped up crises to destroy our democracy and funding for education and FEEDING STARVING CHILDREN. Damn. REPUBLICANS FUCKING SUCK!!!!!
