    Amen, brother.

     

    I rarely come to mydd, but you guys keep this kind of talk up and I'm might just become a fixture around here. I'm interested in real progressive change not this deluted thousand year plan for progress the current Democratic leaders use as their guide.

    I am beyond ready for a third way-sign me up.

    As long as the Fundies have a death grip on that Party---I don't see them doing anything positive.

    The Fundies run that Party and they will not let go easily.

    Let's not forget---Clinton was far more Republican lite( by her stands on the issues) than any other Dem that was running this year for the nomination.

  • exactly.

    No one is suprised at the Clintonistas yelling the sky is falling at the first oppurtunity or the first hint of less than perfect news.They no doubt will be doing this throughout the campaign.

  • Oh Hillary to the rescue?
    IN your fantasy world she may be all things. But in the real world she would be just another drag on the ticket.
  • Why can't we have it both ways?

    It never stopped a CLintonista before.

    "But how does Obama gracefully remove the your a racist card used against the Clintons?"

    You lost me right there, cause my notes say it was the Clintons that tried the racist card against Obama.

  • "Bill Clinton would be leading by 15.  Hillary, by 10.  They'd both be over 50%."

    LOL...where did you pull those numbers out of?
    Never mind, I think we all know.

    I get a always get a kick out of it when someone will  post as some kind of proof or justification of their point of view something that can never be proved or disproved. Something made up. A guesstimate?

    A statement like the one you made should always be prefixed by.... IMO (because it is certainly nothing more than that.

    My guesstimate is Hillary could easily be down by 10% by now if she was running.

    Maybe the question to be asked is..How can the progressive movement best position itself to hold maximum power over a McCain administration? Just in case.

    10.  foreign policy:  (correction)right of center

    I believe in having a big military budget that helps us maintain the strongest military on earth.  We should use it to promote good around the world, but mainly to find adversaries before they find us.  We need to be realistic about what we get into in terms of the longer term implications of what we do.  I supported Afganistan, against Iraq, against Iran.  All, based on what was/is in our best interests.

  • You don't speak for me, cause I have no problem with them using my tax dollars.

  • on a comment on Obama's FISA update over 5 years ago

    Or as I like to think of them---The losers who as kids never were taught by their parents how to lose with dignity.

    LOL...yeah they are back with a vegeance.

    And as we know, warmed over crap--is still crap.

  • Wow, that is so beyond the pale. Were you going for humor there, or just plain hate.

  • Some are ignorant. Some are just bat-sh*t crazy.

    With the faith based charities ties and infiltration and standing in the community they are uniquely suited to disperse aid and have a proven track record over the years. Lets not forget that they collect a lot of money (and always have) from their own parishoners and use it for these same exact type charitable causes.

  • Bull. The seeds for more government money being dispersed to faith based type charities started under the Clinton Administration in 1996, the legislation was call "Charitable choice" and it was part of Clinton's 'Welfare Reform Bill".President Bush when elected then expanded government help to these faith-based organizations.

    In addition,John McCain and Hillary Clinton have at one time or another said they support federal funding of faith-based social services.
