Democrats are PUSSIES!

If a Democratic President destroyed the economy like Bush did it would be the only talking point the Republicans would use about anything.

Today the Republicans have nominated someone that wants to continue what Bush started.

When was the last time you heard a Democratic politician, pundit, or anyone else even mention Bush's name?

Last edited Wed Apr 25, 2012, 02:52 PM - Edit history (1)

If Democrats and I mean the party not the voters REALLY opposed Republicans, they would be drastically different in their rhetoric. Their policies would be drastically different, too, though. But everyone would be sensible of the difference in their tone as a party. They would differ from their presently p***y selves as far as you can imagine. They have none of the fire, none of the anger and none of the motivation that comes from seeing people you loved harmed. Republicans make WAR on the Democratic Party. They make war on Democratic Party constituencies. They never cease repeating and reinforcing a narrative that presents all of America's problems as originating in the policies and attitudes of the Democrats. Whenever a Democrat wants to offer an initiative, he or she has to present it against the backdrop of this Republican narrative, a context which warns Americans that all their difficulties stem from similar Democratic proposals in the past. Democrats have no such counter-narrative that explains America's problems as the result of Republican ideology. Almost everything that has gone wrong for America stems from the "Reagan Revolution" the arrogant militarism, the ruinous defense spending that underlies that, the deregulation of finance and the consequent destruction of manufacturing and real industry on the altar of High Finance's quick billions - the list goes on and on, but Democrats as party refuse to use it. They're limp. (Perhaps they feel inhibited and impotent now because they said mee-too! for so long, they know they can't criticize the Reagan-Bush ideology without implicating themselves and their own party) Voters sense this and turn off from Democrats. They hate non-fighters even if the alternative is a party that they know acts against their interests. I don't advocate making war on the Republican Party's voting base, the way Republicans attack the Democratic base, but if there is no war against the Republican Party's ideology to match the unrelenting ferocity of the Republicans' war on Democrats, the Republicans will continue to win over the long run by default. That's all on the affective level. On a policy level, more often than not, Democrats present themselves as better Republicans, wanting the same basic things (mee-too!ism) - just promising to do a better job of it, dutifully cleaning up Republican messes, gently correcting Republican excesses. That's not good enough for a second party. That makes them the Republicans' p***y auxiliary brigade. As it stands, the Democratic Party is enacting the Republicans' tax structure and their approach to health care. Social program "reforms" are in the offing. This should be unacceptable to anyone who expects the phrase "Democratic Party" to continue to mean something historically distinct and incompatible with the Republican Party.

78. Amazing. This usage is misogynistic on its face.

It likens a group of people to weak powerless individuals, and so calls people with female genitalia weak powerless individuals. It also reduces women to nothing but their genitalia.

I alerted on this one, too, but a little late. I will alert on any such post. Were it not for the strength and tenacity of women, including their genitalia, none of us would be here writing posts on DU. Beyond that, most of us were completely reliant on the strength and wisdom of our own mothers for getting us started and well on our way towards our lives. I owe most of my own standards and values to my mother.

The use of this vulgar reference to women to belittle someone is simply wrong, and will always be wrong.

120. The word "pussies" is a vulgar reference to female

 

genitalia and is used as a perjorative in the vernacular to refer to the weak. As such the term is, ipso facto and on its surface, sexist and misogynist. I really expect better from DU and its vaunted jury system than that this tripe be allowed to stay here. Jesus H. Christ, we're supposed to be a progressive site, not a Neanderthal throw-back to the 1950s.

I do understand that the person making the post was kicked out subsequently but the post is still there and seeing it just pisses me off, especially when I know that a jury supposedly vetted it for its appropriateness.

On edit: I always forget that I can trash a thread which I will be doing post haste. Not sure if I will see your replies when I do.

95. Interesting. I'm working on the content for a new website.

It's an HR placement company. One of their big selling points is that the company is "woman-owned." It seems that the majority HR professionals are women, these days, so that's a major plus for this company.

Perhaps the whole thing will flip over, like a lake in the late fall, when the water on the bottom of the lake rises up and replaces what was on top. Wouldn't that be an interesting turn of events? Maybe we can tip things in 2016 by choosing a woman as President. I'd be for that. Switch it up. It couldn't hurt, that's for sure.

103. I'm not sure any of the other political/economic structures lead to anything different.

Historically, they certainly don't. I don't think patriarchy is intrinsically linked to economic systems. I suspect it has its origins somewhere else, since virtually every widespread social, political, and economic system in current use is pretty much patriarchal.

124. No, I'm not trying to say that at all.

Both men and women can be equally strong. Strength is not measured by how much you can bench-press or how big your biceps are. Strength is something else altogether. But, when it comes to reproduction, all of the strength is on the woman's side. Men expend little effort in the process, and may not participate much, even after a child is born. And, yet, the children grow into adults, whether or not a man is present. As I said, a man's role in physical reproduction is minor. He contributes only sperm. For a woman, reproduction is a feat of strength. For men, it's a transient thing, in a physical sense.

That's men's contribution to reproduction. Basic biology. And I didn't refer to deadbeat dads. I said that reproduction has only the contribution of sperm. Men are not required for a child to be born and grow up to adulthood. Most men choose to stick around and like being fathers.

25. Paul Krugman? This week? Obama spokesman? Yesterday?

But Romney's poor choice of a factory for his photo-op aside, I guess accusing Obama of not doing enough to promote recovery is a better argument than blaming him for the effects of Bush policies. However, it's not much better, since Romney is essentially advocating a return to those very same Bush policies. And he's hoping that you don't remember how badly those policies worked.

For the Bush era didn't just end in catastrophe; it started off badly, too. Yes, Obama's jobs record has been disappointing -- but it has been unambiguously better than Bush's over the comparable period of his administration.

This is especially true if you focus on private-sector jobs. Overall employment in the Obama years has been held back by mass layoffs of schoolteachers and other state and local government employees. But private-sector employment has recovered almost all the ground lost in the administration's early months. That compares favorably with the Bush era: as of March 2004, private employment was still 2.4 million below its level when Bush took office.
...
But that's not the critique Romney is making. Instead, he's basically attacking Obama for not acting as if George Bush had been given a third term. Are the American people -- and perhaps more to the point, the news media -- forgetful enough for that attack to work? I guess we'll find out.

http://www.dailycamera.com/opinion-columnists/ci_20470664/krugman-amnesia-candidate


President Obama’s campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt responded to Mitt Romney’s victory speech on Tuesday by tying the Republican standard bearer to George W. Bush’s economic policies. His statement offers a good summary of how the Obama camp plans to frame the overall race as it heads into the general. Notice the lack of any “flip flop” attack on Romney, an angle that has been largely sidelined in recent days as the Obama camp has instead tried to emphasize Romney’s conservatism and wealthy background. From LaBolt:

“The title for Governor Romney’s speech tonight should have been Back to the Future, because he has proposed a return to the same policies that got us into the economic crisis in the first place – forcing the middle class to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, letting Wall Street write its own rules, and eliminating investments in the security of the middle class. Despite all evidence to the contrary, Governor Romney believes that showering the wealthiest Americans with special giveaways will make the middle class thrive. We have tried those policies before. They didn’t unleash growth, they didn’t spur job creation and they didn’t boost the middle class. And while Mitt Romney praised those policies in 2004, they led to a recovery that produced seven times fewer private sector jobs than the President’s policies, despite a significantly milder recession compared to the one the President faced coming into office.

“This election will be a choice between two candidates, two records, and two visions for the country. The President brought the economy back from the brink of another Depression, bet on American workers to spur the comeback of the American auto industry and American manufacturing, kept his promise to end the war in Iraq and refocus on al Qaeda and fought every day to build an economy where hard work paid off and responsibility are rewarded. Governor Romney referred to himself as the ideal Tea Party candidate, and his policies earn him that title. He would stack the deck against the middle class, pull the rug out from under growing sectors of our economy like manufacturing and clean energy and promote giveaways to Americans who can afford to lobby for them.”

“Mitt Romney has spent the past year out on the campaign trail tearing down the President with a negative message that even Republicans who have endorsed him have criticized. This marks the end of that monologue. Now he must put his record and his agenda next to the President’s.”

The mainstream narrative is that Democrats never speak up and argue forcefully, which is easy to believe although the media game of perception is rigged by the conservative owners.

In their closed circuit all the strong voices either have their mikes shut off by the Orallies or they lose their jobs for saying what they think. The minute they cross the corporate mantra they're out of there.

So the perception for those who don't think a little deeper is that Democrats are weak is fostered through the silencing of those who really are not weak.

To the point is that Democrats/would be Democrats buy into it because it's where their learning ends. If one doesn't work with Democrats in person, it's easy to buy the well-paid for perception that's being sold.

This was for the op. Can't believe it was allowed to stand. Along with two other posts in the thread.


At Wed Apr 25, 2012, 01:28 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

Democrats are PUSSIES!

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

Pussy is a sexist and homophobic term.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Wed Apr 25, 2012, 01:33 PM, and the Jury voted 3-3 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: Try using something less sexist than "Pussy." How about, "pusillanimous," which is where this use of the word "pussy" actually comes from.

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pusillanimous
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: Bashing Democrats and Sexist. Its a twofer.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: No, thanks. See ya!
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: As with many of the words alerted on, "pussies" has more than one meaning. considering the context, leave it.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

against all groups. They think terms like c**t, n****r, s***k, etc. are perfectly fine to use based on free speech justifications and should not result in jury or MIRT action.

Regardless of that assertion, they fail to realize that DU is a community whose members can decide for themselves whether they want ugly language like that to be permitted.

Because, last time I checked, "pussies," were able to stretch to allow a small watermelon-sized head to come out of the human body only to come back to rest at about the same size it was before said head came out.

Pretty tough.

On the other hand, I have never been kicked in the ovaries and groveled around like a skinned cat for hours like my male counterparts when they get hit in their gonads.

Pretty weak.


What you should have said is that Democrats aren't media saavy and should start listening to George Lakoff about how to manage a meme. What you should have said is that they need to be tougher on media types and continue to push their agenda like Republicans do.

Because, what you actually said is that Democrats are tough and that's not what you meant.

90. Congratulations, Reccers! This Thread is Now on the Greatest Page.

Right up near the top of the left-hand list. OP has been PPRed, but the 8 Recs it has puts it on the Greatest Page.

What a world we live in! Uff da!

There is an Undo on the DU Rec option...really...

104. I'm only seeing 9. Maybe someone clicked Undo.

It's still on the Greatest Page, though.

102. Exactly what I was thinking. Bush was a huge fuck up and they act like he was never in office.

150. Democrat politician? Seriously?

Go bring your right wing, mouthbreating self somewhere more appropriate. Try the sewer - it's where all your kind hang out.

151. They're puppets.

... they are not free to fight in any sane way they are told what they can say.

I actually didn't believe that until Obama came along, now I'm as certain as anyone can be.

Nobody who really wants to fight does so with one hand continually tied behind their back. Obama is no dummy, he knows what happened and he knows why but he cannot talk about it.

Just like he can't talk about putting the criminal banksters in jail.
