Barack Obama, on Democrats

This is what he writes in his new book.
"We Democrats are just, well, confused," Obama writes. He goes on. "Mainly, though, the Democratic Party has become the party of reaction. In reaction to a war that is ill-conceived, we appear suspicious of all military action.
"In reaction to those who proclaim the market can cure all ills, we resist efforts to use market principles to tackle pressing problems. In reaction to religious overreach, we equate tolerance with secularism, and forfeit the moral language that would help infuse our policies with a larger meaning."
Yes, that means you, if you are a registered D. Obama thinks you are confused, reactionary, anti-military action, anti-market, secularist, and amoral. And he didn't include the dodgy 'some' this time. He just said that this is what Democrats are.
