9. First, I'm not your friend. That's how some Democratic Senators address Republicans in the Senate.

 

I have no Republican friends.

Secondly, your personal attack has no place on Democratic Underground and is in clear violation of DU rules.

Third, your central reason for opposing an Executive Order prohibiting discrimination against LGBT people is "the worst and most counterproductive action that President Obama can take to improve gay rights" because Republicans will attack Obama is the lamest excuse yet presented in defense of surrender to Republicans right-wing bigots.

In December 2010 President Obama disagreed with your position. That's when he supported administrative action to prohibit discrimination by employers who held federal government contracts.

Fourth, your observation that "every republican talking head will be screaming about the imperial Presidency and failure to listen to the american people" lacks merit. Polls indicated that a huge majority of people support presidential action against job discrimination against LGBT people. It appears you are either unaware of those polls or choose to ignore them because they undermine one of your reasons for opposing presidential action to prohibit employment discrimination.

Fifth, ask "Can you bash a republican ONCE?". I have "bashed" Republican politicians many times, probably more than you. And probably unlike you I have criticized Democratic politicians who have function as "enablers" for Republican politicians, collaborated/compromised with them and have surrendered to the right-wing obstructionists rather than fight them.

Perhaps you can indicate if you are functioning in some capacity on an election campaign committee and if one of your tasks is to attack any DU'ers who express any criticism of any Democratic politician on any issue. I'm not a "plant" for any organization on Democratic Underground. How about yourself?

Never mind. You don't have to respond with a song and dance act.

I know where you stand and I understand your assignment on DU.

I won't alert on you for your disrespect for other DU'ers and Democratic Underground and its rules, but I am putting you on full ignore.

Bye.
