MSN reported Obama is pandering to progressive base.
CBS political editor published statement that the president "can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat."
At least MSN was being truthful. But, yeah, it's going to be a great four years for the Obama Team Cheerleaders.
They have their altars already set up with at least 10 candles surrounding Obama's picture and the incense burning.
Wonder if they chant a mantra or something.
Who do you expect him to pander to?

The retarded right? Did they elect him? Many don't even acknowledge him as their President.

I'm not the only one to have noticed.
I suspect Carol has not only slipped from the rails but has fallen off her rocker as well. She doesn't seem able to understand why her fanatical party is losing power...Carol, try looking at issues and positions?????

No, the unemployment rate would be higher because the additional people considered to be in the workforce would all be unemployed.
But it doesn't matter, because nobody buys the government unemployment data any more.
"Nobody" meaning the far right.

Nobody really gives a sht what they think anyway. Your own party's gonna have to disown y'all to remain viable at the national level.

Support Grows for Roe v. Wade

Seven in 10 Americans believe Roe v. Wade should stand, according to new data from a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, as the landmark Supreme Court abortion-rights ruling turns 40 on Tuesday.

That is the highest level of support for the decision, which established a woman's right to an abortion, since polls began tracking it in 1989.

When was the last time you heard someone of significance speak out about Intelligent Design?

I know that neither of these issues belong to you but they are near and dear to the folks that stink up your party.

See how it has stayed above the line since June, 2009? That's the broadest measure of our economy, you argue that its worse today than it was in Jan, 2009 when the growth rate was -7%.

That's insanity.

Do you really not know the history of the Democrat Party in the Deep South from the Civil War until the mid 1960s and that this bloc of Democrats were very powerful in thwarting every single piece of civil rights legislation - including the mid 1960s?
Knowledge is power, Lily. You're looking a little limp right now.
Everybody knows that history, everybody also knows those southern bigots abandoned the Democratic Party after passage of the Civil Rights Act. Everybody also knows which Party welcomed them into the fold and that that is what shapes that Party today. See "Solid South" and the "Southern Strategy".

Today is what matters.

Quoting Colin Powell who is talking about Republican party that once was, now it's in self destruct mode.
"Why aren't Republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things? They should speak out," said Powell. "These idiot presentations continue to be made and you don't see the senior leadership of the party say,'No, that's wrong.' In fact, sometimes by not speaking out, they're encouraging it."
Powell admitted that his recent attacks on the GOP have left people wondering why he's still a Republican. He explained, "I grew up under Ronald Reagan and Cap Weinberger and George Schultz and George Herbert Walker Bush - that's the Republican party I know...and I think we've drifted from that."....Yes by a loooong way!
This is where Powell and similar rational Republicans get it wrong, Reagan et. al. are the guys that cut the moorings and set the party of Goldwater and Eisenhower adrift. They're the ones who embraced the insane right wing "christians" that are forcing the party into irrelevancy. They're the ones who made the party a punchline rather than a reasoned counterpoint to the excesses of the left. The ones that made they've made their own excesses more abhorrent than those of the left.

Carol, you've been spouting that same delusional nonsense for as long as I've been following this thread.
The truth is that President Obama is for all the people, not just the wealthy for whom the GOP panders.
People like me see a lot Carol, I see how people like you want to deny citizens of equal rights because of who they love and choose to marry. I see how GOP state governments tried to suppress the votes of minorities. I paid attention to the plight of the Sensata workers in Illinois as Bain dismantled their plant and shipped it to China. I see hoe the GOP governor and legislature in Virginia passed a law requiring women to submit to an invasive and unnecessary medical procedure if they chose to terminate a pregnancy.
I don't know what happened to turn you into a bitter bigot and quite frankly I don't much care. People like you are increasingly irrelevant.
Did you say " People like me see a lot Carol,..."?

What a S T O O O P I D moron. All your friends and you included post bigotry daily, hypocrite.

Dumbfk.

Nonsense my misinformed underling! For if President Obama (sings a tune when you say it) were the antichrist, he would've showed is true face by now. If your gonna post on a topic, at least be knowledgeable of such topic! The bible says that the antichrist would come at a time of war disguised as the pacemaker, which in retrospect would fit in,to your theory, but heres where you lose! It also says that after 44 months of rocking that disguise, he would show his true face& take on a reign of destruction. Now, I'm no genius, but if there's 12 months in a year , & 12 multiplied by 4 is 48, would'nt he already be on his reign of destruction being that 44 months have passed ? I don't see this reign of destruction happening anywhere! Do you?Your forefathers believed in a God too. They prayed to him when they were slaughtering innocent indians (men, women & children). The God I pray to doesn't adhere to murderers, thieves, rapist. How bout yours ?

The march to fascism continues. As long as Americans sit on their ass and let the communist minded people put their Socialist dictators in power we will lose our liberties. We are going back to being serf to the powers. This is how Hitler came to power. And as Hitler did, Obama with his fascist supporter will convince weak people to allow farther repression of American liberties. All Hail to the United Socialist Authority.

Republicans provided one year of comedy called the campaign complete with video, Ryan losing the debate to Biden and fate dealing out 47% to whats-his-name, your candidate.
When neither President Bush attended the GOP convention may have been a sign that the party was in trouble.

You might attempt to find something positive about your party rather than carping on your failures ?
