It is so sad for the Democratic Party faithful. Jane Harmon was the last principled, patriotic Calif Democrat in D.C....Her intelligence and sense of honor are sorely missed.

Good. Moderates have no place in the Democratic party. Democrats need to be far more left wing than they are.

This moderate group has lost almost all of its female members, down to just Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.)"
Ms. Sanchez is a "moderate"? Perhaps thru the lens of the WaPo.
Loretta is moderate in neither her politics nor caloric intake.

Blue Dogs aren't Socialist azz kissers therefore the Jackasscrat voters consider them republicans. There's no dumber voter than a Democrat.


All that really matters is that the Democrats lose the Senate and WH this year.



If Romney reduces the Filth Obama's world record Deficits, we'll have REAL Hope & change.

I agree. John McCain, Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch, and Tim Pawlenty need to go. I am sick of these Blue Dog Demoncrats.

They deserve it for what they've done to this country.

Bingo......NO ONE has less class, character, and basic integrity than the far left who are transforming the Democratic Party into the "enemies within". It is a very dangerous time for America. Will we stop the madness or surrender to pelosi?

Another Poll Of Independents Spells CATASTROPHE For Obama

Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-independ...

This new Fox News poll shows a dead-heat between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, but there's an important underlier here that could be crucial as we move closer to the election in the fall.

Again, it's the Independents. Again, they are choosing Romney over Obama. But this time, there's a better measure of how concrete they are in their support of Romney over Obama.

Take a look at the following two questions from the Fox News poll. The question reads, "Which of the following best describes how you feel about voting for [Barack Obama or Mitt Romney] for president in November?"

Look at the Independent column. An astounding 54 percent of Independents would NEVER vote for Obama. That compares to just 37 percent for Romney. Also, more Independents (37 percent to 30 percent) would "definitely" vote for Romney.

This is all great news for Romney and bad news for Obama. As has been the trend, Independents trust him more on the issues they think are the most important in this election.

Look donkey brain,'if' the S.C. upholds AZ SB-1070, and voter I.D. laws prevail, there may be only a total of 14% of latinos left in the country that will be eligible to vote come Nov.

Sensible non-Communists will regain the Democrat Party. The intellectually lazy tyrants taking over the Party will be the ones extinct.
