29. "This is politics. Not a church social"

Great post.

But at the same time I too hate the premise. Liberals are peace lovers, we believe in the good side in human nature. We believe that two humans that have a disagreement can negotiate and compromise and avoid all out war. But what throws a monkey wrench into that is when the other side purposely REFUSES to play along. Even if they know that overall things will be worse for everyone by their petulant behaviour. And then blame that worse situation using their propaganda outlets in the MSM on the other party. This will continue for the simple reason that it WORKS. How else is it possible that a flip-flopping ken-doll vulture capitalist like Mitt who represents the party that destroyed the economy ever be even within reach in the polling numbers?

So, with regret, I agree with you. Progressives cannot simply continue with the Charlie Brown act even if our leaders are susceptible.
