Democrats must learn to unapologetically embrace the term "liberal" the way Republicans embrace "Conservative."
Republicans and the wealthy elite that fund the party (Koch brothers, Roger Ailes/Rupert Murdoch/Fox News, Clear Channel, Grover Norquist, etc.) have all learned that if you take policy to the most extreme opposite of your opposition, you will always win.
For example, Obama, Democrats, the majority of Americans, and economists support a significant raise in minimum wage. Republicans, such as Lamar Alexander, rather than just saying "we don't want to raise the minimum wage," decided to be completely against minimum wage altogether and started calling for its eradication.
The result? Instead of meeting in the middle and raising minimum wage to only $8.00 or $9.00, the Republicans won by taking their opposing belief to such an extreme that there simply was no middle ground other than to keep minimum wage where it's at.
This is how Republicans always win even when they do not have control of all the branches of government. They have simply figured out that if they take the most extremist positions on all policy concerns, the status quo will remain unchanged until they can take control and move policy even more to the extreme right.
We have seen this with healthcare reform as well. The Affordable Care Act is a Republican healthcare plan created by the conservative Heritage Foundation as an alternative to the Clintons/Democrats support of a one-payer system. Now that a Democrat has embraced their plan in order to get some momentum on health reform, they have decided that it is now "socialism" and "communism" and support no reforms at all (only the eradication of their own plan).
Until Democrats take a page from the Republican playbook and begin doing the same (supporting a maximum wage of $2,500.00 per month for all employees like European countries are attempting, calling for the ban of ALL guns, supporting more access to and funding for abortion clinics, supporting a one-payer national healthcare system, etc.) Democrats will continue to find themselves to the right of Ronald Reagan (who would no longer be accepted by the current Republican Party).
It's time to get extreme Democrats.
Hillary, Warren, Sanders. These are examples of what ALL Democrats should be. Otherwise, they might as well change party affiliations.
The homicidal lunatic who want everyone who disagrees with him to burn in the gas chamber thinks everyone needs to go "extreme'. What a shocker. Follow this advice and you can hand total control over the the Repubs.

Spacey......go take a flying [email protected] in a rolling doughnut. I am a independent and I could careless what party you are from. You think America first jackweed. Neither side is doing that and I do not care to hear your side of the spin. The proof is in the reality and it sucks. This administration is terrible and only a dumb blind sheeple thinks the current idiot in charge is doing a good job. Only a butt slurping jackweed would think that this group, republicans or democrats, are doing a good job. So shut the hell up and go back to eating cheetos naked in your bean bag chair down in your mom's basement.

Wow, they called the thoughtful and purposeful decision to ignore the Constitution and violate the law "The Program". GWB, Cheney, some general dude. Bush just signed a paper that said it was legal, so they declared it lawful. Absolutely amazing at the arrogance of these traitorous idiots.

Allow me to reiterate myself. It's now 9:35 pm and no tea partier has said Benghazi yet. Do we have to do everything for you lazy bums?
From my 1:15 post:
What's wrong with you tea partiers? It's after 1:00 pm and no one has said Benghazi yet.

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/05/12/1298 ...
If Republicans really want to investigate what went wrong in Benghazi, they need to look in a mirror

" Even after Congress approved the U.S. military joining a NATO mission in May 2011 whose efforts contributed to Gadhafi’s fall and death, neither the House nor the Senate ever held a hearing about Libya and what the NATO-led effort had left behind. After four decades of living under Gadhafi, all with no real security force or order, Libya struggled to maintain security, its economy failed to recover and the weak government in Tripoli was powerless to fend off extremists who took control of the restive country.

Republicans were front and center in the failure to explore what was happening in Libya. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the senior Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee and a harsh critic of the Obama administration over its handling of the Benghazi attacks, met with Stevens during a July 2012 visit to Libya, just two months before Stevens’ death. A month earlier, unknown attackers in Benghazi had attempted to assassinate the British ambassador to Libya.

In response to the attempted assassination, Britain closed its consulate. McCain didn't mention it. McCain didn't mention that security was imploding. McCain did issue a press release lauding the great strides Libya was making toward democracy. This was as accurate as his infamous 2007 lauding of the security in Iraq, as that country was spiraling into hell.

The intelligence community “produced hundreds of analytic reports in the months preceding the Sept. 11-12, 2012, attacks, providing strategic warning that militias and terrorist and affiliated groups had the capability and intent to strike U.S. and Western facilities and personnel in Libya,” according to a report by the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence that was released in January.

And yet, in the year and a half between the U.S. intervention in Libya and the attack at Benghazi, despite those hundreds of warnings, McCain and his pet poodle Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) issued exactly two combined press releases pertaining to Libya.

It gets better.

The chairman of the new House select committee has a mixed record on Libya. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., voted for the resolution that allowed for U.S. intervention. But weeks later, he supported one intended to prevent the U.S. from providing the kind of military presence that some argue was needed to prevent Libya’s post-Gadhafi decline into chaos. That resolution read in part:“The President has failed to provide Congress with a compelling rationale based upon U.S. national security interests for current US military activities regarding Libya.”

Let's reiterate: the chairman of the witch hunt investigative committee voted for U.S. intervention in Libya, then voted against the robust military presence that might have protected the Benghazi diplomatic mission.

As for the rest of the committee:

The six GOP lawmakers announced Friday are Reps. Susan Brooks of Indiana, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mike Pompeo of Kansas, Martha Roby of Alabama, Peter Roskam of Illinois and Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia.

And together with Gowdy, on the June 3, 2011 resolution offered by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), which read:

Declaring that the President shall not deploy, establish, or maintain the presence of units and members of the United States Armed Forces on the ground in Libya, and for other purposes

Among those supporting the resolution were Reps. Brooks, Jordan, Pompeo, Roby, Roskam, and Westmoreland.

If the Republicans want to investigate Benghazi, they need to look in a mirror."

I've been talking climate since Saturday evening. You guys have changed the subject. But when I stay steady on one topic, I'm deflecting? I wasn't aware that we had to stick to assigned topics for discussion. Where is that rule posted?
