52. The problem is the lizard boy gains credibility and democrats move more to the right...
to meet the extremists "in the middle". In fact - that IS the problem. The far right wing is now mainstream and democrats are not challenging this because they want to stay just a millimeter to the left of whereever the extreme right wing is at the time. So we have Obama as a Reagan republican - stuffing the executive office to the gills with Wall Street CEOs and operatives.

I lose more and more respect for democratic leadership with each passing year that living in this country becomes more and more like govt. enforced servitude to the rich.

We don't have politicians, we have chambermaids for the rich.

Democrats are letting the right wing in both parties change what it means to be an American. It now means unrestrained violence, greed, torture, surveillance, drones, bank fraud, criminal CEOs. labor exploitation in Asia, police state, on and on.

Democrats are not fighting this - they are enabling it by staying silent except for blowing hot air rhetoric at election time.

After which they are back on their knees in front of wall street and telling liberals who complain to shut the fuck up.

So, democrats are quietly enabling the right wing to dominate politcal direction in the nation. Things are going to get much worse before they get better. Obama isn't helping, he's enabling the enemy.
