64. Mr. can you be so blind.
Or ARE you blind? Is this intentional??

You KNOW...that the DLC bashes (on mainstream media, I might add) the traditional Democrats. They SOUND just like the republicans sound. And, yes, Hillarity Clinton, as well.

They talk about how we have to turn more toward corporations, to HELPING corporations, by giving them tax breaks, so that the REPUBLICAN-style "trickle down" economics can "work".
It has been proven that "trickle down" economics only works for the rich.

If it walks like a republican, and talks like a republican and quacks like a republican, it's prolly a republican!!!!

Watch what they DO. Watch how they VOTE. They vote with the republicans.

What part of this do you wish to confuse with your EXTREMELY conservative rhetoric?

              - I never said he was not DLC. I said he lost in 2002.  Dr Fate   Oct-09-05 09:26 PM   #67

                             - Here is a unique idea on how we actually can do that:  Dr Fate   Oct-10-05 05:23 PM   #83 
                                - That seemed to you like a good idea? Weird.  MrBenchley   Oct-11-05 06:14 AM   #88

                                            - Include me out....  MrBenchley   Oct-11-05 05:25 PM   #107 
                                               - I will.  Dr Fate   Oct-11-05 05:29 PM   #109 
              - Also, I think Kerry won in Richmond county due to massive GOTV...  Dr Fate   Oct-09-05 09:50 PM   #68 
                 - Geeze, get out the vote is a strategy old as the hills....  MrBenchley   Oct-10-05 07:13 AM   #70 
                    - Wrong- it was Liberal Black voters who put Kerry over the top in Augusta.  Dr Fate   Oct-10-05 11:18 AM   #76 
                       - And I'll bet a lot were old line moderate Democrats  MrBenchley   Oct-10-05 04:17 PM   #77

                                - The "me too" strategy was one passed down from the top in 2002.  Dr Fate   Oct-11-05 10:27 AM   #94 
                                   - Again, did you expect to set national policy  MrBenchley   Oct-11-05 04:37 PM   #96 
                                      - I dont believe I've looked at the DNC website in some time either.  Dr Fate   Oct-11-05 05:11 PM   #99 
                                         - Tee hee hee....  MrBenchley   Oct-11-05 05:16 PM   #101 
                                            - I asked how YOU influence national policy.  Dr Fate   Oct-11-05 05:19 PM   #104 
                                               - Ask louder....  MrBenchley   Oct-11-05 05:24 PM   #106 
                                                  - Nah- I'll check "the website"- that holy-grail of strategic wisdom...  Dr Fate   Oct-11-05 06:48 PM   #113

                                                     - Yes- and you can tell from my posts that I was never driving at that.  Dr Fate   Oct-12-05 12:57 PM   #116 
                                                     - Which posts are supposed to tell me that, pray tell?  MrBenchley   Oct-12-05 04:29 PM   #117 
                                                     - No one is supposed to tell YOU anything, Mr. Benchly.  Dr Fate   Oct-12-05 04:53 PM   #118

  - Dean does not go much for gun control.  madfloridian   Oct-10-05 05:31 PM   #86 
  - So since YOU declare it a non-issue  MrBenchley   Oct-11-05 06:31 AM   #90 
  - And James Dobson is opposed to gun control! Aiyeee!  MrBenchley   Oct-11-05 06:36 AM   #91
