None are close to moderate or progressive.
Everyone mentioned is far to the right of Dwight Eisenhower for God's sake.
Clinton signed NAFTA that destroyed millions of American jobs, but added trillions to the profits of corporations who moved those jobs to Mexico.
That's a Right Winger, and he has been repaid in millions and millions of dollars in "contributions" to his "Library",$1 Million Dollar "speeches", and seats on boards of manufactures companies.
Dodd has protected the boards of banks and corporations more the anyone else, providing weak, toothless regulations on banks and corporations to assure no actual oversight occurs.
He is repairs with Millions in contributions.
Elizabeth Warren is the only true moderate in the Senate- and she was not encouraged or supported to the extent she should have been, in fact, Obama refused to appoint to regulating position(s) because the banks hated her so.
Obama is Bush with a brain, and as long as Right Wing Wackos keep accusing him of being liberal, the actual Right Wing money folks just sit back and laugh at you all.

Some could infer this is a post of a far right winger from what he has said, but only if one forgets he is a Socialist.

The only inference one can get is the poster is totally confused in assuming a moderate is the same as a progressive when the "progressive" term is an euphemism for socialism, not a moderate stance at all.

That isn't all that tough.
All countries do best when they enjoy a strong and growing Middle Class.
A string and growing Middle Class requires governmental policies that encourage the distribution of wealth throughout the populace.
That is accomplished by tax policies that discourage the outrageous accumulation of wealth into the hands of a few - Progressive taxes on all income and inheritance taxes, strong laws encouraging collective bargaining, and well-funded public education.
Democracy cannot survive if power is purchased by those with the most wealth. That means contributions (a/k/a bribes), have to be limited to small donations from Americans,(persons), not corporations, unions, PACs, or other entities.
Democracy requires everyone share responsibility and sacrifice. That means everyone serves 2 years military service unless they're disabled, in which case they serve 3 years public no military service.
Basically we're describing America under Republicans like Eisenhower and Teddy Roosevelt.

No, you're not describing America under Republicans like Eisenhower and Teddy Roosevelt.

What you are describing is a watered downed version of Trotskyism.

Otherwise known as IO's own little version of government.

As to mandatory public service- We already have mandatory public service, but it's only mandatory for Americans from families without other options. It should be mandatory for All Americans. We wouldn't be wasting Trillions of dollars and thousands of our troops if the "elite"s children might be forced to risk being blown to bits in the sand of Iraq along with the poor kid from rural Georgia, or the Bronx.
As to unions - With the destruction of unions and the resulting drop in tax affected wages, the loss of benefits, the loss of pensions, the drop in home ownership, and all the other indicia of the destruction of the middle class,
along with
the incredible increase in productivity of the American worker that has caused the explosion in profits, the astounding amounts of cash held in reserve onshore and off shore, and the explosion in executive compensation,
and it seems impossible to me to argue that unions aren't essential to maintain the balance between capital and labor.
If the facts aren't sufficient, then simple common sense tells you that the Georgia giy with three kids and a wife to support is never, in a million years, going to be able to negotiate with a multi-billion dollar company over wages and benefits.
Remember a corporation is an amoral profit making entity whose sole purpose is to pay as little as possible for labor and other expenses, and charge as much as possible for the service or product. Corporations better be trying to screw employees- or they aren't doing their job.
Especially as to teachers unions - Why America would want to disassemble public eduction is amazing to me. The countries I visit respect and honor teachers and pay them as professionals at the highest amount that can be afforded.
That's why their kids kick our kids' butts academically.
That's why we send our kids to public schools in a district where we voted to pay higher school taxes than anywhere else nearby - to provide our kids better schools and pay higher salaries to teachers - so we get and maintain the best ones. In addition, our family hires a tutor to help our kids with their A-P classes and with Spanish. Our business has opened accounts at office supply stores and the kids' teachers simply have to order anything and everything they want online and its delivered to their classroom, and charged to the business.
When you test the kids in our kids' classroom, that teacher is a genius.
Compare that with the school district less than 30 miles away where the majority of the kids attend school less than 68% of the days. 40% don;t speak English as their primary language. 95% come form families so poor they get free breakfast, lunch, and supplies. 60% come from single parent homes with the parent having less than a grade school education.
That district also has a large number of "special needs" students - do you think a charter school would like to spend the extra tens of thousands each of those kids require? Under your plan- don't they get thrown in the ditch ?
Those teachers must be deserve to be fired because their kids' test scores suck.
Vouchers only make it worse by diverting funds the schools desperately need to "special" schools for the chosen few. The majority suffer to benefit the few.
If we want to create a permanent uneducated "serf" underclass class: to be cheap, exploitable labor for the few with the funds to exploit them for manual labor at great profit, and require the taxpayer to provide medical care at the public hospital for the serfs, and subsidized housing because the Serfs cannot afford to buy or rent decent homes, we are well on the way.
Wait... haven't I just described the Walton Family and WalMart.

A drunken attempt to explain the failure we see in a lot of school systems. Have another drink and calm down fella before you blow a gasket.

It's going up. Sane Americans see the politicizing the Republicans are doing and rejecting it.

Well hell, when the idiot population increases in this country from 51% to 53% that quick, either the polls are wrong, or Obama has influence over the polls, or the increase in idiocy is growing at an alarming rate.

Glad to report I'm not one of the idiots but I know a few here on topix who are.

I'll take these on in separate posts. First of all, how dare you denigrate military service like that. NO ONE is dragging kids off the streets and making them enlist, we have a 100% voluntary military. For kids who have no idea what to do with their lives or who do not have the finances to go to college but know they want something more than they can achieve on their own, the military is a great way to be productive and learn some skills and either use those skills in a civilian job or use veterans loans to then go on to college. One of my kids was in a college class with a young man who did just that. It's actually quite impressive, given the probability today of getting sent to an active war zone , that the military has no problem in recruiting.
I know kids from very comfortable families whose children wanted to serve their country in the military. Some are in the academies and some are enlisted - one family with one son who just graduated from an academy and another who just enlisted. So don't give me this hogwash about how only the poor with no other options are in the military. It's garbage.

Something perhaps the clueless and uneducated could learn is that just because someone is against the Liberace Party, the POTUSA and many of their policies and actions, it doesn't mean they're COMPLETELY for the policies and actions of the good guys...
In other words, just because someone is against BO, it doesn't mean they were happy with W.

Please, the grown up were trying to exchange rational thoiughts and ides.

You know the drugs you live on with that Socialist Medicare don't allow you to stay up late with the normal folks.

Just call the nurse and she'll empty your bed pan and set the alarm on the doors to the ward, so your nephew doesn't have to search for you again, when you walk away from that facility where you live that Medicaid provides.

Tomorrow, after oatmeal, and you get your teeth back from the nurses, you can tell us all how you did it ion the old days, before you became completely dependent on my tax dollars.

Right Wing Wackos have a three major problems they can never confront because it demonstrates the total bankruptcy of their positions.
They want America to be a "Christian" nation, yet they despise everything that liberal, socialist, commie, "Libtard" Jesus Christ preached ; and
They cannot argue against the fact that whenever Right Wingers are in charge - the deficits explode, the debt doubles or triples, we waste Trillions playing war, and the wealth travels upward to the top 1% faster than ever.
They benefit more from government programs than any other group, but tax breaks and subsidies to them- that ain't welfare.
Those facts make their positions unworthy of serious consideration.
They know it, but can't accept it.
"Accountability" and "rationality" just ain't in their vocabularies.
Well, HYPOCRITE, you've out-lied yourself. What you call facts are just made up crap that is actually your worthless opinion. How about TRYING to post something worth reading with an ounce of truth to it. You've not done that, YET.

"Appearing on Sunday morning on ABC News’ This Week, White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer told a credulous George Stephanopoulos that the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups was “inexcusable,” and that the law with regard to the activity was “irrelevant.”

Size of Gross debt..
Ronald Reagan $2.9 trillion
George H.W. Bush $4 trillion
Bill Clinton $5.6 trillion
George W. Bush $10.6 trillion
Barack Obama $16.4 trillion
Bush II added 5 trillion in 8 years, less than his daddy at 4 trillion in 4 years. Obama 6 trillion in 4 years.
Facts are facts and hyperbole is hyperbole.
IO just posts whatever comes into his head and he knows the other libs on here will give him their approval. All that does is reinforce the FACT that they have NO FACTS.

I understand suggesting reading a book to Right Wing Wackos is like asking Dracula to eat garlic.
But give knowledge a try, and perhaps you'll get a grasp on why you'll never see a moderate or progressive allowed to run for national office, until wealth and income disparity is reversed.
Here's a great book -
"What Then Must We Do?: Straight Talk About the Next American Revolution"
author: Gar Alperovitz
Gar Alperovitz is a professor of political economy at the University of Maryland and a co-founder of the Democracy Collaborative. His books include "The Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb" and "America Beyond Capitalism."
I don't want a progressive to run for office. That proves Obama is an extreme left wing liberal. He wants to SHARE THE WEALTH therefore opening the door to a progressive.'nuff said.

I like this one......

"Penny Pritzker: Obama's Worst Insult to His Left-Wing Base."


From a liberal blog.....

"Susie Madrak of the "Crooks and Liars" blog, reacting to Pritzker's nomination in a piece entitled, "Obama Nominates Sleazy Subprime Banker As Commerce Secretary," wrote:

Time for a little stroll down memory lane. This is what I wrote about Penny Pritzer, Obama's just-announced appointee as Commerce Secretary, back in February:

Penny Pritzker, union buster.

Penny Pritzker, sub-prime lender who drove Superior Bank into the ground.

Penny Pritzker, Chicago Board of Ed members who thinks your children only deserve enough education to make them a member of the workforce.

Penny Pritzker, billionaire tax dodger.

Penny Pritzker, potential Secretary of Commerce nominee? Is this a joke?"




IO must love Penny.
