Republicans had been good in framing the parameters of the debates. While talking about the small businesses, he merely said "So I ask Senate Republicans to drop the blockade." That's weak. It should been Senate Republicans are responsible for blocking funding and availability of credit lines to small businesses. Obama and the Democrats needs to take the fight to the Republicans and teabaggers if they want the folks back home to be able to figure where the problems actually lie.
For your edification, President Obama himself asked to be called Barack instead Barry because he didn’t like that nickname. Continuing to call him the same is offensive. You’re just revealing your PUMA spots by your insistence of calling him so.
Further, Hunter is still a DailyKos contributing editor. He goes by the name Michael Lazzaro. Given your claim that you grew of these blogs, your ignorance about them is profound. That some of those frontpage bloggers didn’t ring a bell for you seems very surprising. As a frontpage blogger of a premier progressive blog like MyDD, you do step in those big shoes. A certain level of knowledge and decency comes with the package.
Lastly please point out where I claimed MyDD is a dying blog. As for your proclivities about human excrement, please keep that to yourself.
I really enjoyed reading about the "reds" and "greens" and your historical narration of the relevant period of that divisiness in Roman Empire.
Of course, I remember our interchanges in these pages. I think your handle was Lotus Bloom. I rarely write diaries these days. I mostly lurk and read DKos and MotleyMoose these days. Here I do read Charles Lemos and JA and occassional diaries from folks whose name I can recognize. It's hard to write comments here since the changes in the format.
The last time I read that name in these pages were by listed by PUMAs, now found mostly in the pages of Confluence or the defunct pages of Alegre's corner. As a MyDD's frontpager you're trying to fill in shoes of bloggers of the likes of Todd Beeton or Chris Bowers or Charles Lemos or even a Jonathon Singer. If you're trying to be an Armando or Dana Houle by merely being rude and offensive, then you're doing an awfully poor job. I never heard or read a Frontpager of frontline progressive blog asking a regular reader to eat faeces.
It's not my place to judge your place as a frontpager. Normally I trust Blogfather's choices but yours' is befuddling.
Not to nitpick, but can an apostrophe be used on a gerund? I know one can use the apostrophe on a noun before a gerund but not necessarily on a gerund itself. I'm curious about your usage of I'm workin' and crackin'.
