5. LOL speak for yourself.

I'm with the 96% of liberal Democrats who support the job President Obama is doing.

3. just read where huntsman pretty much said the same thing....

i`d say the national republican party has become as split as the democrats were in the 70`s .

6. Completely agree. But the GOPers can sure win elections

Democrats should take hard and repeated lessons on this.

The only major pol. to call the GOP "extremist" in memory was Jimmy Carter in 2004. Caused Neal Leher of PBS to lose his train of thought; no one says such things. The GOP still controls most of the narrative, and there ain't much left of the left.

7. They can win elections?

Judging from this year's results, doesn't appear that way to me. They're plum out of viable, sane candidates imo...

9. It's not the GOPers' candidate strength that keeps them viable...

It's the weakness of Democratic ideas and programs. We ran a good election; better (for once) than their's. Success was based on the ineptitude of their candidates. But the Dems move continuously to the center-right for a reason: the Party has some time ago made peace with corporate power, and it wishes to demonstrate its break with anything resembling the "left" (a strained and promiscuously over-worked term).

The GOP will deal with the ultra-extremist TPs, and return to the standard RW extremism of corporate power. They were on their merry way with this in the early 'oughts; they will return to it again.
