Boneheads like Pawlenty are among the reasons why I'm no longer a Republican.
Don't these people get it?
This is he same thing that got this country into trouble in the first place.
It's easy for the liberal blogosphere to point this out and fire up the base to keep these characters out of office, but where are the Republcians? Isn't there somebody in the GOP with the guts to say "This hasn't worked, this won't work and it's high time we tried to develop a program that will."
Sorry about the rough nme. It's just that sometimes on these sites, people come up with some strange ideas that to me sound like a hybrid of liberal philosophy and right wing extremism, hence terms like "Blog Birchers", "Little old lefties in tennis shoes""Socialist freepers" etc.
Thanks for the link. I regularly visit two other web sites and all I read about there for the most part are about the things Obama's doing as President.
A fourth one complains about "Wimpy Dems" in a manner that makes it sound like a real-life version of David Letterman's Osama Bin Laden holiday tapes.
But when I come here, it's all gloom and doom, all "inside baseball", all horse race, all the time.If it's not Jerome, it's Jonathan Singer, if it's not Jonathan singer, it's Chris Lemos, if it's not Chris Lemos, it's Nathan Espenall, if it's not Nathan Espenall, it's nate Silver, if it's not Nate Silver, it's desmoinesdem, if it's not desmoinesdem, it'severybody's favorite defeatist weasel, Upstate Kent.
Jerome,, just what has the President done to hurt you, anyway?
I'm not a liberal Democrat, I didn't vote for Obama, but I think he's tryiing and I'm getting a little tired of the knives in his back with the "MyDD" and "Bartcop.com" logos on the handle.
What has to dawn on you is that while this may be a Republican year, it may not necessarily be 1994 all over again.
It seems that a lot of people, especially at MyDD right now, have joined in on calling the election seven months early and if something doesn't fit the mem (like the Fl-19 results), they're dismissed as irrelevant. Had the election been closer or gone Republican, then there may have been a lot more noise about national implications.
Lynch was on Fox Business Channel during the campaign, bragging about his post-HCR fundraising and touting some information the was supposed to have given hm the lead in the race. Also, the M$M decided to gin this up as a referendum on Obama and healthcare,
Those arethe things which apparently made the victory margn significant.
P.S-You didn't answer my question. What happens if PA and HI stay Democratic.
Two things to remember about Stevens' replacement:
1) the right will think they're too radical.
2) The left will be dissatisfied with womever gets the nod 10 minutes after the name is leaked.
oh, and here's a third:
3) It won't be worth losing some mosquito abatement trustee's seat to the Republicans in the eyes of Kent (his position will recceive mega-recs along with the endorsements of desmoinesdem, Jerome Armstrong, Jonathan Singer and Nate Silver).
